Hazy deep reddish brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate, airy and a little dry, modest fine carbonation. Soft malts, mildly sweet and a trace cream. Light and tangy whisky soaked fruits. Mild spicy bitterness. Soft airy finish. Light and easy going barrel aged beer.

alteregoo (1873) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Piana obfita ale mydlana, szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa miedziano brązowa, lekko mętna. W zapachu rodzynki, miód, parkiet, whisky. W smaku półwytrawne, lekko słodkie, z kwaskowym, morelowym posmakiem, melasą, figami, przyprawami. Nieduża, ziołowa goryczka, delikatny lakier i stara beczka w aftertejsie. Średnie do wysokiego wysycenie, niezbyt gęste w odbiorze, rozgrzewające.
Nieco lepsze od wersji Islay, nadal jednak słabiej niż w Noir de Dottignies.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Robijnrood/bruin met fijne crèmekleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Kersen, rood fruit, eik, houterig, whiskey, beetje caramel. Lange, licht warmende, afdronk. Prima barrel aged bier.

Alengrin (6013) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Dark Belgian-style strong ale aged on Speyside barrels, in collaboration with De Ranke. Very thick, cobweb-lacing, coarse, moussy, egg-white head over a misty dark caramel bronze coloured beer with burgundy hue. Aroma of caramel sauce and butterscotch candy, rum-soaked raisins, chestnuts, dried figs, marmelade, sweet pipe tobacco somewhere, ruby port, date compote, dried banana, some woodiness and a hint of whisky. Sweet onset, dried fig and raisins with a very light sourish edge, medium carbonation, full and very supple, bit resiny mouthfeel, slick and a tad oily. Thorough caramelly malt sweet body, very butterscotch-like with a chestnutty accent, some light toasted bread in the end matching with a spicy hop bitter touch and warming, indeed (non-peaty) whisky-like alcohol, with again only a thin slice of woodiness next to it; the residual sugary sweetness, reminiscent of treacle, candied fig and even honey, lingers, but is dried somewhat by the whisky, so that everything ends clean and to the point. Very well done, cleaner than your average artisanal Belgian dubbel or quad, a pleasantly warming, sweet, filling sipper, I liked this version a bit more than the Islay one.
