skweek (13) - College Park, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Poured ruby with a thick tan head. Taste was fruity with lots of spice. It was good, but not really my style. Bottle was 2007 vintage, aged roughly a year.

Gangstergafje (957) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017
The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the beer is a nice brown. It looks like a good Belgian ale. The beer is cloudy and has a nice satin look, perhaps caused by a yeast sediment. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft almond coloured foam is formed. The bulk collapses, leaving a nice drape. The smell of the beer is good. It is a decent winter ale. I smell a certain creamy and slightly savoury yeast smell, which is nice. There are also nice malty aroma’s and some syrupy smells. There is heavy alcohol in there, all resulting in a nice and warming smell. The taste is like the smell. There is a strong yeast flavour, sweet malts but hardly any hops. There is a nice syrupy sweetness. Palate is simple. Medium body, smooth and creamy texture and medium high carbonation. The finish is not that long and a bit dry. All in all, nice beer but not the best beer on earth.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
One that got away. May 2016. In requisite tulip off the in laws. Glossy ruby with a disappointing grey-beige head shrinking to the perimeter of the glass. Enticing sticky molasses and muscovado aroma with malt loaf, nail polish remover and raisin. HP sauce and Cola spice; ripe plum, dried herb, nougat and soap in the blender. Discreetly boozy and spiced.

Demens (404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 12, 2017
0,33l bottle. Hazy thick dark brown colour with medium lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma: Caramel, candy sugar with spicey tones and yeast. Taste: Has a full malty start with soft fruity and spicey tones with a slight bitter mouthfeel. The texture smooth and creamy. Medium/full body with medium carbonation. Long sweet/sour and a little bit spicey finish. Has a charm for the holidays, a special one but not a culinaric bombshell.

Smaak: Karamel, kandij, geroosterde mouten, kruidig en iets scherp, ver weg een lichte chocolade hint en licht metalig.

Drank with Bram before watching Narcos s02e01 3-3-17. Ordinary beer. Mainly alcohol and sweetness. Also typical ’spijs’ taste that you find in christmas beer.
