Blind. Ruikt weer off, zoals ik wel vaker heb. Ziet er wel aardig uit, teveel carbo. Sterk, zoet, kruidig.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2016
Full draught at source, late Nov 2016, served too cold at La Casse-Croute to serve as dessert to my boulets liégoises. - Cinnamon and plum compote aromatics spiced with aniseed make up the surface lure of this typically smooth and straightforwardly composed Val Dieu abbey beer. The roasted malts add enough bready depth and the seasonal greetings of roasted almonds to provide the structure and some depth lacking in the the yeast profile. Some coriander broth underneath, orange bitters. Had this before on tap at Moeder Lambiek and it has to be said this remains a creamy-smooth palate pleaser thanks to/despite its obvious instant consumability. - Will revisit my 75cl bottle with some age on it.

Moravius (1278) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 27, 2016
Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 09/13, mehrere Jahre im eigenen Keller gelagert). - Tiefes Kastanienbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase milde Gewürze über dunklem Malz und Pflaumenmus, zarte oxidierte Noten. - Im Antrunk üppiges dunkles Malz mit Rohrzucker und obergärige dunkle Frucht mit schwerem Gewürzeinschlag (Pflaume in Madeira). Mild rezent, vollmundig aber nicht schwer. Im Abgang milde Weihnachtsgewürze auf Pflaume aber kaum Hopfenherbe. - Angenehmes süß-pflaumiges Bier, das etwas mehr Tiefgang haben könnte.

Frisch vom Hahn bei Moeder Lambic. Schwarzkupfern im Glas mit imposanter Schaumkrone. Wunderbar ausbalanciertes Triple mit perfekt verstecktem Alkohol.

TtV (456) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a medium off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, some malts and grain. The taste is bittersweet with an aftertaste of caramel and alcohol. Quite good!

Cerveza completa, sin peros, una maravilla retenerla en el paladar, te pone la carne de gallina, dulce pero sin saturar, cada trago es una s, extremadamente completa. Estoy deseando repetir.

Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 dark brown colour with reddish notes, large, dense, though not too stable beige-ish head; aroma of dried plum, some raisins, burnt sugar, some anise, vinous notes and hints of herbal notes; taste of burnt sugary bittersweetness, syrupy notes, dried fruits (plum, dried sour cherry, maybe dates, too), anise, some (mulled) wine, herbal notes and spicy alcohol - bottled Christmas feeling

3.6
Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2016
- schwarze Farbe mit einem leichten Rotstich - leichte feinporige Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Trockenfrüchten, Sherry, Portwein, Karamell, Bitterschokolade, Marmalade und etwas Eichenholz - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Idee zu moussierend - die verschiedenen Aromen bleiben im Antrunk schön erkennbar nebeneinander stehen - manchmal kommt der Alkohol in Verbindung mit einer holzig-bitteren Note etwas unangenehm hervor, aber im Großen und Ganzen hält sich der erhöhte Alkoholgehalt in Grenzen - gerade der Mittelteil ist mehr eine Port-Madeira-Mischung, denn ein Bier - im Abgang kommt dann die Bitternis nochmals richtig zum Vorschein Fazit: Mehr Dessertwein denn Bier

blackisle (2530) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle 75cl. [bought 12/2014, bbd 04/2016], poured into a trappist glass. Deep ruby brown, small frothy beige head, diminishing slowly, a small creamy layer remains, light lacing; sweet malty nose, rich, delicate and vinous aroma, roasted malts, caramel, candy/brown sugar, candy syrup, cinnamon, dried dark fruit notes; very smooth taste, heavy sweet, ever so slightly bitter, roasted malts, brown sugar, dried dark fruits, touch of chocolate, alcohol, all elements that continue in the aftertaste, additional a light bitter note, spicy and licorice notes, warming alcohol; full-bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation; well-balanced, rich, round and complex, excellent stuff, the best Val Dieu can deliver.

3.9
Gurthnar (5820) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2016
Tap at Moeder Fontaines. Rich, full bodied. Lots of maltiness going on, caramelly dried fruits. Slight warming alcohol. Rather sweet. Delicate, soft, yet rich and intense. Great beer.
