Pours a dark brown with a small head that lasts for ages. Deep ruby colours shine through the glass.
First Sip: Medium hops and dark toast up front, with a lingering sweet malt and caramel on the finish. Mouth feel is smooth with tingly carbonation on the tongue.
This is a yummy beer. Tasting the hops up front instead of malt was a surprise, but it was pleasent. Even though the alcohol content is only a little less than the Delerium Tremens of last night, it is much subtler and refined. This one leaves a nice warm feeling in the belly and none of the raw alcohol taste.
Brouwerij Alken-Maes (French and Dunch languages only. Nice art, though. What? Art is better than a bunch of drunken bogans)
Same again, sir? Yes please.
