Tröegs Brewing Company – Mad Elf (Belgian Strong Dark Ale)

  • 11.00% ABV
  • I have no idea how to describe the smell of this but I am going to go with festive… Only because it is a Christmas beer and like I said, I have no idea. It tastes, not horrible? I mean it is a Belgian style beer which right off the bat means it has a lot of shit to make up for. And they seemed to have resisted the urge to make it taste like a glass full of sugar, which is a good thing. On the down side I am only getting a weird malt taste out of it. Not bad but weird… I am torn, I dont really like it but it isnt terrible.
  • – Dont buy

Brouwerij De Smedt / Brouwerij Affligem – Affligem Blond (Belgian Strong Pale Ale)

  • High Goodness
  • This is surprisingly good for a Belgian strong, the others I have had didn’t really make me supper happy. For being as strong as it is the alcohol is not really all that up in your grill. All and all it is pretty good, M1 is freaking out over how much she likes it.
  • + Buy again for M1

Dogfish Head Brewery – Pangea (Belgian Strong Ale)

  • Highish Goodness
  • Damn it, this shit is way too sweet. Evey body else thinks it is smooth and one of the cool kids. Too bad they are all fucking RETARDED. This is not horrible but it isn’t very good. I am very sad, this tastes like the poo.
  • – Dont buy.

eDOUBLEg says: A well crafted beer in a style that tastes of honey dipped balls. I can try to appreciate the balance but the sugar is obtrusive and oddly it disappates quickly, it confuses me, I want to hate but I can’t,  the beer is almost enjoyable.

Unibroue – Maudite (Belgian Strong Dark Ale)

  • Highish Goodness
  • I am not sure how to explain this. When I smelled it I thought it was another White beer like the other 2 tonight. It has a more distinctive taste tho. And I like it! M1 and I are splitting the beers so I am only getting a half dose, I dont know if I would still like it after drinking more than 1 of them.
  • + Buy again, but dont go crazy about it.
