Alengrin (5156) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
New Scotch-style ale reviving an all but forgotten style in Belgium. Yellowish beige, stable head, very dark chestnut colour. Sweet and malty aroma, dates, raisins, chocolate, candi sugar, sherry, soy sauce; dark fruits in the mouth, sweet and smooth, even a bit syrupy, resinous mouthfeel, light roasted bitterness in the finish as is to be expected from the style. I appreciate any attempt to revive old and dying beer styles but apart from that, this is a very decent Belgian ale.

bierkoning (13124) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2013
Tap @ Caf Morshuis Albergen. Deep dark brown color. Apple syrup and caramel in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with apple and coughing syrup. Just a hint of roast. Decent.

Borresteijn (6863) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2012
Tap sample at In de Wildeman. Reddish brown colour, light beige head. Aroma of fruity esters, fusels, alcohol, caramel. Flavour is rather sweet, sugar, typical SF, caramel, light toasted malts, bitter alcohol, light fruity, light malty and alcohol bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Not bad for SF, but again too sweet to be really enjoyable.

erickok (5918) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2012
Dark ruby red and a big tan head. Toffee, nutty, toast, Belgian yeast but not super expressive. Medium sweet palate and nicer taste. Light roasty end. Dried fruits. Still refreshing due to the carbonation and hop backup. Nice! (On tap at Ledig Erf)

Draft. A dark red, ruby coloured beer with a mocha coloured, medium sized head. Malty aroma followed by licorice and molasses. Flavour has a full sweetened body with malty sweetness in presence as well. Very sweet, but still easy drinkable and not cloying at all.. Nice suprise...
