Pours clear pale body with no head. Aroma has lots of alcohol and malty background. Taste is high sweet malty, low bitterness, earthy. Body is full, low carbonation.

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.

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.

A bit too sweet for my taste. The sweetness masks the high alcohol %. Not bad at all, but does not really taste like real beer. Nice bottle though.

The color is a clear orange with a small white head, and the aroma is boozy and reminiscent of bread malts. The taste is quite boozy, mildly sour, and a touch sweet, and the palate fuses a medium body, oily texture, aaverage carbonation, and a boozy but short finish.

Nice amber colour with a malty smell. Strong taste, hints of brandy. It would have been nice with more prune taste as this fits better to the type of beer.

25cl bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours a thick dark straw colour with a fair head made with large bubbles - quickly dissipates. Aroma is just strong alcohol and little else. Taste is much of the same but with added pepperiness. Quite unpleasant and certainly would benefit from less alcohol.

El aroma de esta cerveza se resume en notas a base de malta con un fuerte respaldo alcohólico. Cerveza de color cobre, con destellos naranja, carbonatacion muy baja. Corona de espuma nula y cuerpo ligero. En boca suave, alcohólica y ligeramente citrica. Al paladar es una cerveza fuerte, donde du potencia alcohólica se percibe desde el primer trago. Se percibe ligeramente un sabor a malta y un toque herbal y citrico. En resumen hablamos de una cerveza potente muy alcoholica pero con un ligero y sabroso toque a malta, aun que lejos de el estilo que representa, carece de la complejidad de una Belgian strong ale.

Bottle. Pours copper with a small off-white head. Strong alcohol in the aroma with notes of caramel, malt and light fruit. Very sweet flavor with notes of caramel, alcohol and light dark fruits. Sticky sweet finish with more alcohol notes.
