Leute Bokbier - Brouwerij Van Steenberge (Belgium) 7.5%

Leute Bokbier - Brouwerij Van Steenberge (Belgium) 7.5%

A dark brown in a glass with a red hue; not opaque. There is some very light sediment at the bottom of the bottle, not much at all. Earthy like fresh tilled soil, sweet, roasty, nutty (like nuts coated in sugar and roasted over a fragrant smelling wood fire), salty and bitter aroma with hints of fig and darker malt tones that verge on being coffee-like or chocolate. Very strong flavour, quite sweetly roasty and almost sticky with red fruit hints (apple, pear, fig) but with a bitter dry hops overlay and roasty, slightly nutty, malt backbone. A long, very lightly bitter, umami finish. Reminds me of Yule Beers. A truly great ale perfectly crafted and balanced.
