alteregoo (1792) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Piana obfita ale mydlana, szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa miedziano brązowa, lekko mętna. W aromacie dominują suszone owoce (zwłaszcza figi), do tego karmel, whisky i odrobina torfowej dymności. Smak półwytrawny, niestety nuty podkładów kolejowych, rozgrzanego asfaltu i parkietu są na pierwszym planie, zaś rodzynki, melasa i ciemny miód majaczą gdzieś w tle. Średnia, migdałowo ziołowa goryczka, alkoholowe rozgrzewanie, średnie do wysokiego wysycenie, dość rzadkie w odbiorze.


Zapach tak (torf jest tu jedynie delikatną przyprawą wzbogacającą quadowe nuty), smak nie (dominacja torfu zabija całą resztę) - tak na szybko da się podsumować to piwo.

TBone (18416) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Bottled 330ml (Etre-Gourmet)

Dark ruby-red colour, steady beige head. Not much Islay in the nose but red berries and whiskey-like alcohol. Medium to full-bodied. Soft palate. Toffee, caramel, low bitterness. Probably barrel ageing has done the smoothness but Islay is not really dominating here. Not typical De Ranke either. Some vanilla but not much of peat or smoke but when it warms up some notes of Islay. Hides alcohol well. Easy sipper.

Alengrin (5791) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2017
Collab of Six Degrees North with De Ranke, thanks Stefan for sharing. A quad aged on Islay whisky barrels, with thick and dense, creamy, pale yellowish beige head and very dark but translucent bronze robe with burgundy brown hue. Aroma of chestnuts, stewed pear, cola, vanilla-ish oak, candied fig, some light peat (as in: real moist peat, not so much the iodine), blackberry jam, banana, almond, treacle, toffee, liquorice. Fruity onset but in a ’clean’ and orderly way, some banana, black cherry, fig, sourish elderberry-like accent, candi sugar sweetness but nothing obnoxiously cloying, bit oily mouthfeel, softish carbo. Caramelly malt sweet core, nutty, bit resinous; again the peat aspect remains subtle and limited, though a whisky-ish flavour is noticeable, including an afterglow of warming alcohol; some tea-ish herbal hops provide soft bitterishness but it is the candi sugary sweetness that remains. Bit unusual quadrupel-ish beer, technically well executed, but my expectations were higher considering De Ranke’s contribution and this could have been more ’deeply’ peated for me as well.
