Thanks Niels! Your a swell pal for sending this gem! High boost level and it definitely comes through. Appearance resembles most belgian quads. Murky brown tint, with a little tan head. Nose is big time caramel malts and booze. Taste was caramel and booze. Finish was caramel and booze. Overall, it was fun to try, but would re-trade this if I ever get it in a box again.

Cloudy brown color, head is almost absent . Alcohol , malt and fruits in the aroma . Sweet malty, caramel taste with notes of alcohol , dark fruits, spices ... Very sweet , even though finish is dryer. An ambivalent impressions ...

Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, dark fruits, and lots of booze. The booze dominates the flavor as well, with some sweet dark fruits. Syrupy. The booze is a bit too much.

4.5 oz pour at highball. Super thick aroma of Sugar and malt. Holy cow this is super sweet any syrupy. If you want a beer that is maddeningly sweet medium malt abv bomb you must try. Amber maroon pour. Fig notes. Burns a little going down at 17.5.
