Den Herberg Bruin

After that last disapppointment, I think it's only fair to give something else a try. So, off to a new tasting of another beer I've never heard of before: Den Herberg Bruin.

It pours a fantastic butterscotch colour, particularly after you add the significant amount of yeasty mungness from the bottom of the bottle.

The taste is creamy and mildly malty, low on hop. It's a tremendously smooth caramel delight, actually. It's hard to imagine a more velvety beer.

Despite the lighter colour and the relatively low alcohol level (5.5%), this beer is actually not very far in taste from dark Trappist fair.

In short: moreish.
