Next up a beer brewed by De Proefbrouwerij for brouwerij de Arend in Hoboken, Patrasche is named after the dog in the story "A Dog of Flanders"
Pours a dark nut brown with a slight red hue, topped with large, creamy tan coloured head that slowly fades, leaving behind a lasting centimetre covering.
Pleasant aroma of sweet roasted malts, brown sugar, dried fruits, hints of liquorice and faint chocolate notes. Taste is sweet and fruity with roasted malts, dark fruits, caramel, raisin also a slight oak bitterness in the finish.
An easy drinking beer, good but at the same time middle of the road.
