De Dolle Arabier
La birra si presenta perfettamente. Colore biondo carico un po’ torbido. Schiuma bianca, pannosa, compatta ed infinita. Aromi intensi di miele, erba di campo, fiori. Amaro un po’ pesante. Bilanciato solo parzialmente dalla dolcezza mielata. Carbonatazione abbondante adeguata. Corpo importante ed alcolicità ben bilanciata. Immaginandosi un abirra belga si immagina un’aromaticità del genere ma l’amaro eccessivo ruba leggermente il piacere della bevuta.

De Dolle Stille Nacht Special Reserva 2005
Truly amazing for a 12 year old beer. Cloudy amber appearance (after yeast left to rest in the bottle). Small head; very little lacing. Convoluted aroma of sherry, oak, ripe fruit and spices. Complex flavors share the same attributes as the aroma with more emphasis on a comparison to a dessert wine. Long lasting finish with a little spice in the aftertaste and plenty of alcohol. Think of this as an aging diva, still beautiful but far from her prime. Sloth outdid his self again in a recent trade. Thanks Bert.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, bottled probably 1994/1995. Pours almost clear light brown. Aroma is a bit of soy sauce, spicy, old prunes. Body is medium, fruity, but a bit sour and rather tart, intense. Incredibly balanced and harmonic. A little boozy on the palate. An experience not to miss!

De Dolle Evil Arabier
Bottle from ? Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is mixed - overall soapy, but maybe a touch of vinegar and some pedio? Med body or so. Flavor is a little acidic, maybe a bit pedio. Mostly it’s coming across as excessive floral perfume for me. Cap says bottled in 2015 - maybe it’s getting better sitting around. Anyway I’m finding it drinkable. Dry, mildly acidic, somewhat bitter. Belches a touch acetone.

De Dolle Special Extra Export Stout
Black. Spicy and yeasty, with a strong and pungent flavour. Lightly sweet taste with tart notes, that ends with a dry, boozy, lightly bitter and ashy finish. Medium body, and foamy carbonation. Overall, a somewhat decent strong ale. The pungent, yeasty flavour and rather dry taste are at odds with the roasted malt.

Slick and oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Strong notes of fruit and alcohol alternately. Should be drunk with care.

De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva 2010
Bottle, picked up in Amsterdam by me and miles back in my suitcase and carefully stored for this special event: my 10,001st rating. Shared with my various tasting group members. Capped and corked, not a gusher, so good start (plus Lori says the cork smells like brown sugar!!). Medium orange-amber, pillowy white head. Beautiful aroma of cooked pears, maple syrup, candied orange, very reminiscent of a tawny port. The palate maintains the same oxidized notes (in a pleasant way), with a sultana sweetness and vinous complexity. The finish is tart and dry and woody. Just amazing. I really love the rounded sweetness and unfolding complexity of this brew!

Color dorado anaranjado, muy turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Repleta de sedimento. Carbonatación media tirando a alta. Textura oleosa. Aroma frutal, especiado, algo ácido, húmedo, con presencia de la levadura. En boca es frutal, medianamente dulce con notas ácidas; se notan la miel y las especias, con final de no demasiado amargor pero remarcable. En boca, después del trago, quedan especias y fruta, así como un ligero regusto a miel muy placentero. Otra cerveza top de De Dolle.

The taste is light to medium sweet and full bodied, with notes of dried fruits, malts, caramel and honey and changes into a light sourness/bitterness with notes of yeast, pepper and spices and dryness of candy sugar.

From bottle pours black with big fluffy tan head which takes a while to settle before you are able to take your first sip. Rich aroma of roasty malt, espresso coffee, red berries, roasted hazelnut and a touch of dark chocolate. Nicely balanced sweet and strong flavours along with a far from watery texture, quite oily and thick. Pretty damn fine strong stout

0.33 l bottle from ’drankgigant.nl’, best before February 2017, cellared for almost two years. Foam streams slowly out of the bottle... Clear, very dark reddish brown with a massive, foamy, very dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity, slightly vinous and a bit yeasty-spicy aroma of caramel, raisins, figs, red grapes and oak. Sweetish, a bit sourish, malty, moderately fruity and quite yeasty-spicy taste of caramel, red grapes, oak, marzipan, candied cherries and a touch of chocolate, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, dry, a little tart and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, heavily effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very tasty and really complex, almost refreshing with that sourish, typical De Dolle yeast touch. The excessive carbonation is quite annoying again though, this almost needs to be decanted as most of their beers.

De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva
De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva 2013 Pachnie trochę jak wnętrze browaru Cantillon :D Ogrom drewna, vanilia, wiśnie, ciemne winogrona, karmel, nuta dymiono-palona, czerwone wino, nieco funku. Nos jest tutaj cudowny, taka złożoność, ogrom nut aromatyczny, wzzystko intensywne o świetnie zgrane. Smak mocno wytrawny, lekko kwaśny, delikatna słodycz praktycznie tylko nadaje piwu kremowości i gładkiej faktury. Ciało nie jest za duże, ale to też przyczyną głębokiego odfermentowania. W smaku też ogrom się dzieje; jest bardzo winnie, są też dojrzałe wiśnie, dużo drewna, mokrej skóry, nuta karmelu. Posmak bardzo wytrawny, taniczny, winny, długi i interesujący. W tle lekki i przyjemny alkohol, piwo ma w końcu 13%. Jeśli ktoś by dostał to piwo na ślepo, to nie ma możliwości żeby nie pomylił go z winem. Cudowny, złożony i pyszny trunek. Wybitnie do powolnej degustacji i cieszenia się każdym wąchnięciem i łykiem.

Tap @ bishop’s arms, savoy Malmö. According to staff its not an infected batch they serve. Apparently it is. Hazy deep golden color and a large white head. Aroma is fruity and tart with pepper, brett, stone fruits, vanilla, grass, strawberries. Odd. Taste is tart, fruity, medium sour with lingering sharper sourness lingering in the Aftertaste, sort of crashing with the bitterness. Flavors of brett, vanilla, grass, bread, grape fruit, salt, leather, gunpowder.

Thanks TimE for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing half a finger of clean white foam showing moderately translucent dark orange. The nose shows tart acetic notes with a light red wine notes of plums and blackberry. The palate is highly carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately tart with light acetic notes and light notes of red wine - plums and blackberry again. Not bad!

Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de cuatro o más dedos de grosor (burbujas finas, muy buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Textura cremosa y muy interesante debido a la elevada carbonatación (combina cremosidad y efervescencia). Aroma hiper sabroso: mucho cacao, azúcar, café, malta torrefacta, alcohol, frutos secos... En boca dulce, con mucha malta torrefacta, cacao, café (sobre todo al final, con mínima dosis de amargor seco) y alcohol (no excesivamente presente, pero sí lo suficiente como para calentar agradablemente el gaznate). En boca, entre trago y trago, queda algo de café y dark fruits (probablemente pasas). Muy completa, para degustar con tranquilidad. 9%.

Best before 09/2017, aperta il 1° marzo 2017. Dorata carica, lievemente opalescente, schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Aroma di banana, chiodi di garofano, arancia, erbaceo fresco e pungente ma decisamente gradevole, il tutto accompagnato da note di pera. Al palato attacca con un erbaceo fresco e balsamico che accompagna tutta la bevuta, intermezzo di banana e arancia che lascia il posto sul finale ad un tepore etilico molto presente (i 10 gradi si sentono tutti) e ad una nota di arancia candita e chiodi di garofano. Retrolfatto di banana ed erbaceo fresco. Molto carbonata, corpo sorprendentemente leggero.
