10/XII/15 - 33cl bottle from De Zytholoog / Bierloods (Adegem) @ home - BB: n/a, but probably a very old bottle, no more back label (2015-1706) erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Clear purple brown beer, creamy solid beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty oxidized, caramel, raisins, dried fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: little sweet, oxidized, some caramel, pretty bitter, some sweetness, metallic. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet touch, pretty bitter hops, metallic, bit spicy, banana, alcohol, yeast.
Brown body, frothy instable head. Cookie, toast. Medium sweet, toasty malts, bit yeasty toughness. Richer than I faired, actually, although the taste is still a bit bland and light alcoholic. Palate is correct, ending short. Good start, nice malts, but eventually underwhelming. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks) vipinvelp (4438) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015

Mid brown colour with big foamy head. Bread dough aroma. Intense carbonation. Really dry with a spicy, yeasty edge. ForlornHope (524) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a deep red-brown colour with a white head. Slight aroma of roast malt and scalded sugar. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness. Lively mouthfeel with sweet, cola-like notes. Quite rich and satisfying. OK. Alengrin (5382) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
The dark one in this series, another Flemish nationalist beer, but let’s keep politics aside and taste this objectively. Dark brown with ruby hue, stable head, light caramelly maltiness, sweetish, estery, brief hop bitterisness in the finish and clearly metallic with clear iron in the nose, lacking body. Utterly boring and cliché, like the others in this series.
