3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, brought back from the UK by Matts_Property, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small-to-medium tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, candied sugar, some dried fruits and toasted bread. Flavour of Belgian yeast, toasted bread, sweet caramelized malts, a bit of the dried fruits and an alcohol burn. The flavours sort of become muted toward the end, leaving a dry toasted bread and semi-sweet finish. Not very complex for a quad. Decent, but lacking and seemingly uninspired.

In short: A super sweet 15% burgundy fruity beer. Relatively easy to drink monster, excellent for what it is
How: Bottle 50cl, consumed relatively fresh, almost 4 years before expiration date
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a small beige head
In long: Uber-rich toffee and dark fruits nose, this beer smells like a million calories. Also present in the aroma were some less pleasant paper notes. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried dark color fruits, figs, bubblegum. There is also a liquorice flavor but not like typical beer liquorice flavor, actually the liquorice flavor was like a liquorice alcohol such as Sambucca or something like that. What’s surprising about this beer is that is doesn’t taste as sweet as expected. It’s still sweet but there’s something about the tobacco-ish hops and paper off-flavor that seem to suck away the sweetness. Anyway I thought it was actually quite easy to drink for a 15% monster of a beer. Certainly not a great Abt (this is far from a classic abbey style Abt) but as a big fruity sipper I thought this was excellent. I’m usually not a fan a big monster beer but I can sometimes stray away and indulge in such a beer, I’m sure that even the cute Tony the Tiger occasionally puts the Frosted Flakes aside and rips apart a gazelle for dinner.

Bottle (50 cl) from Bierkompass.de. I love the label of this beer. Otherwise, it was not that exciting. Weak belgian character, some malitiness with a roasted touch. Dry with boring salty bitterness.
