Best before 27-05-05. Poors in great with huge thick and well lasting yellowbrown foam. Beercolor is brown with a red hint in it. Nose is very (yeast)spicy and further a caramellic maltnose. Taste issweet malty with again lots of caramel, spicy before going into a moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice cause of the aromatic taste but also the carbon dioxide thats there in major proportions ads to the good moutfeel. Good and drinkable beer but there are better ones to find in the style, at least in my opinion.

This was my first of the two Tongerlo's on-tap in Antwerp. Served in a Tongerlo chalice.

I've had this one both in a bottle and from the tap, and as usual for imported beers, the quality on-tao in its home country was FAR superior than the bottle form.

Poured a dark reddish brown that was hazy with a nice head, and was incredibly smooth for a dark belgian ale. It could have been the fact I was several belgians deep already by the time I came across this one, but I liked this one. Sweeter than your typical belgians of the same style.

One of the two tongerlos which certainly follows a similar pattern.

Pour is dark, caramel/brownish with a cream/tan head, very porous or rocky that lasts (the yeast is there) and with certain bursts of carbonation visible alongside the glass.

The smell is rich, fruity and wheaty. The malt appears in the taste as an added sweetness- slight enough I mussay, and blends in properly with all the fruit ranges. Not very bitter at the end, and full bodied with little carbonation making it a nice experience.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Reddish brown, decent head. Smell: Not much aroma, aside from a little candi sugar. Taste: Bland, somewhat thin tasting. Seems more of a simple brown ale (not Flander Brown!) than a Dubbel or Dark Strong Ale, but has no rummy, caramel complex malt flavors. Sweet, sugary finish.

On the pour a deep garnet with hints of mahogany, the head is ponderous in size, creamy in consistency and a winsome light tan in color, after desiccation the residual lace a fine covering sheet. Nose is malt sweet, caramel, fresh and crisp, with a malt laden and sweet start, the top middling in feel. The finish is stinging in its acidity, the hops purposeful in their spicy presence, dry and lingering aftertaste. Quite a nice drinking beer, but about average for the style like its lighter colored sister.
