In short: murky dark belgian ale.
Pours dark amber with nice creamy tan head. Very hazy, chunks of sediment. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Roasty, caramel, nuts, estery aromas. Medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is some sweet, caramel, spicy, nuts. Alcoholic mouthfeel, warming palate. Enjoyable.

Black small foam head. Watery aroma and taste. Quite disappointing, had higher expectations. (Arnhem 201501) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

O,33l fles meegebracht uit purerend. Donker bruin met een dikke cremkleurige schuimkraag. Geur geroosterde mout, alcohol. smaak is zoet droog van de alchol, met een tikkeltje wrange afdronk. Niet echt mooi in balans.

33 ml bottle, Appearance: Very dark brown colour ,with a small 1 inger sized, thick beige head on top. Head has a good retention, and leaves medium lacing on the glass. Aroma: A full dark fruits basket( figs, dates,elderberries.), some roasted malts, some apricots Nice ! Taste: Well the taste has a real suprise you take the tastes of the aroma but you add that Typically too sweet candy sugar Barley Wine style of the Jopen brewerie but this time you keep just in balance. by the roasted bitterness. Yes it; s sweet Fruity, but just enough roast to keep it nice. And with taste like that all the alcohol does is boost things. without comming into front. Medium thick body, good carbonation with a slightly sticky palate. Very good brew.. And quite unique. I would personally say it’s a barley wine not a triple !

Heavy on dark roasted malts. But in a good way! Not too complex taste or aroma. Quite some alcohol on the aftertaste. For food pairing I propose a meaty stew or something otherwise rich in taste.

Figen, mørke frugter, ristede noter men ikke kaffe. Dejlig mellow og rund. Kan godt dufte og smage at den har lagret 3 år på flaske. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Uitgesproken smaak, maar echt helemaal niets voor mij. Sommige mensen zullen dit zeker goed kunnen smaken, maar ik niet

Alengrin (4820) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2014
The first beer from Nieuwhuys and very different from the witbier style we all instantly associate with the name Hoegaarden. Pale beige, firm, sticky, mousse-like head, colour a very dark brown with wine-red glow, misty. Very fruity and malty nose of banana, cacao powder, coffee liqueur, cinnamon, sweet sherry, pears, mint, candi sugar; rounded mouthfeel, dark fruits and candi sweetness, mild carbonation, a hint of orange peel, all on a firm basis of chocolate-, caramel- and nut-like maltiness, also some yeasty spiciness and a leafy bitterish hoppiness in the tail, where the somewhat cloying sweetness of the candi sugar also lingers on and some warming, wodka-like alcohol emerges, very slightly burning and in that respect not that well hidden. A bit stronger now than it was in the beginning and I have the impression they also toned down the roasted malt accent, which is no longer noticeable.
