On draught at upstanding establishment. Nice pour in a tulip glass, leaving plenty o' room for a large head to roost on top. Straight amber in color. I would call this a Belgian amber rather than a Belgian Dark Ale - it's not particularly dark in color or flavor. Moving on... nice malty aroma, very subtle hoppage, earthy. Nice round flavor to this - signature Struise fruityness and mild sweetness, pretty malty, with a slight earthy funk (not sour). Smooth on the palate. This is a nice drinkable ale from De Struise - not an over the top flavor assault like many of their others (which I love). Just a nice Belgian amber.

Sampled from a 33cl bottle I picked up in a trade in London. Best by date was May 2013 so I'm a bit beyond but wouldn't think that's a big deal with the style.

A stream of foam came pouring out of the bottle as soon as I opened it. Fortunately I had a glass close by and managed to salvage a good portion. I wasn't sure what to expect at that point.

A - A light brown color with serious haze and a small beige head. Looks a bit like pond water.

S - Brown sugar, apple, breads.

T - Lots of brown sugar with some green apple and hints of raisin.

M - Moderate, smooth mouthfeel with a mild carbonation of fine bubbles (I think the bulk of the carbonation exited before the pour).

O - Decent flavor. I'm not sure what caused the foamover but it doesn't seem to be infection.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Red brown body with a small head that dissipates to a ring. Some lacing.

Nose is plum/raisin sweet, a bit of brown malt sugar. Harbinger of interesting tastes to come.

Tastes of brown malt, plum notes, a bit of roast in the middle palate, finishes dry with some cocoa and slight grassy hop bitterness. Taste is a bit subdued given the nose.

Body is light and carbonation is low, with a light almost mineral water mouthfeel.

This is a good, light, fruity dark beer, pleasant but not spectacular. Good for pairing with food, had this with a sweet potato black bean chili and it hit the spot.

ABrown-yellow colored with hazy appearance, little yellow head. Plummy, sweet, brown sugary aroma with yeast and some grass here, decent one. Medium bodied. Flavor has some roasted side with still sweet plummy-chocolaty note here, aftertaste dries with yeast and same grass, little bit of carbonated in mouthfeel. Decent, easy to drink.

750ml offering. Urbain states this brew is made with Trappist Westvletern yeast. After a couple sips, it is somewhat familiar to some of the St. Sixtus offerings. However, I never would have made that connection easily without his description.

This brew pours amber with an off-white cap. Decent retention overall but a light swirl revives the cap and produces spotty lace that sticks to the glass.

The smell is very malty and rich almost with a touch of darker nutty aspects. A touch of herbs and belgian yeast phenols create some depth.

Tastes sweet and malty with a nutty touch. Some yeast and weedy to herbal hops faintly in the aftertaste breaks things up a bit. Some yeast and fruit is evident as it warms. Aftertaste of toffee is quite enjoyable and familiar.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Quite malty with lots of flavor and depth to a rich sweetness to layers of malt. A very unique and enjoyable brew.
