Dorqui (2261) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 13, 2005
[Label: brewed by Sterkens]
Light and compact foam. Beautiful red/dark orange color, brown reflex. Very elegant and much bubbly one, hazy and fraught. Intense scent of leaven, must and small red fruits (currant, cherry). Warm taste, a lot balanced and with forts bitter period followed a lot sweetish moment. Strong liqueur and caramel rumors. Long and pleasant end. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2002

Cloudy amber colour, thin collar of foam. Light aroma of malt, dough, yeast. Pretty strong body, malty, a hint of liquorice and a good amount of hop.
Beige medium lasting foamy head. Reddish brown color. Aroma is sweet, malty with caramel, dark fruit and ricolice notes. Flavor is moderately sweet with caramel and light roasty tones, ending in a balanced slightly fruity finish. Medium bodied. mike_77 (7085) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
75cl bottle brewed by Sterkens in Meer - Very dark red-brown colour. Dark malts. Fruity and sweet with some liquorice in the aroma. Light bitterness. Strong carbonation. JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2006
Very dark chestnut beer; small, brownish tinted head. Dark malts, chocolate malt, chestnuts or other nuts, quite sweet nose. Sweet chocolate flavour, even "praliné"; liquorice, some roasted malts. Medium to well bodied. Burnt/roasted flavours come up in the aftertaste. Sweet, even when not bad. One does never know where a "Sterkens" beer is brewed, but in this instance, Huyghe is more than plausible.
