Just a boozy gimmick, as expected. Reminds me if the hot sauce trend of the 90's where heat trumped flavor...same goes for this abomination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber color. Very alcoholic on the nose. Much better taste, sweet malts, balanced with the strength of alcohol. Soft, with some hoppy influence of at the end.

angel77 (849) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2014
Botella de 25 cl en la Abadía de león en 20-04-2014. en el momento. Color ambarino con espuma blanca poco persistente. Aromas de cereales dulces y poco mas. Cuerpo intenso con bastante sensación, alcohólica. Paso por boca bastante denso y pastoso, generando espuma en todo momento. Sabores maltosos y cereales con toques dulces ligeramente de frutas maduras. Buena, aunque bastante plana sin sabores intensos o destacados ya que el alcohol lo enmascara todo, sobretodo cuando coge temperatura. Ya van varias botellas, la primera en Ponferrada en julio de 2002 y esta vez ha sido la menos impresionante, ya hay mas, afortunadamente, donde escoger que por aquellos años.

Pours a golden orange color with a short lived white head. Fruit, sugar, yeast, malt and spice aroma. Yeast, malt, sugar, fruit and spice flavor. Light body and average carbonation. Very sweet with a sweet fruity finish with just a slight alcohol warmth.

tfredvik (1098) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Clear, pale amber body with a small, off-white head that is fairly short-lived but it laces the glass well. Quite strong and dry aroma of pale malts, Belgian yeast, fruits and spices. The taste is absolutely not dry, it’s very sweet malty with a quite long-lasting moderate bitter finish. Strong malty sweet flavour of pale malts, Belgian yeast, sugar, corn flakes and lots of alcohol. Almost full-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation.

Renobob (616) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Ca attaque fort sur l’alcool et ça continue. Difficile d’apprécier d’autres arômes. Finale matée. Sans intérêt mis à part que ça saoule vite.

tricksta_p (1007) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Aroma of malts, sugary, alcohol. Flavour is sickening thick sweetness and unpleasant strong alcohol. Of little worth to me, I just don’t like strong boozy beer with little in the way of aroma, not to mention the sweetness.

Beerhunter111 (7089) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit wenig Schaum. Geruch sehr malzig süß, fruchtig, alkoholisch. Geschmack süß malzig, fruchtig, trotz des hohen Alkoholgehalts sehr gut zu trinken.
