In my opinion, stronger alcohol taste than some beers with higher percentage of alcohol I've tried. Tried the bottle. Seemed a bit flat and just "off".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25cl bottle into tulip. Lille.
Appearance: golden in color. Transparent. White foamy head with good retention. Lots if small bubbles coming from the bottom. Good lacing.
Aroma: citrus, grains, alcohol.
Taste: sweet with a bitter alcohol finish.
Palate: medium body. Thick texture. Long alcoholic finish.
Overall: not overly complex but still very drinkable, especially for being 13%. Doesn’t hide the achool as well as other Belgian strongs, but still not bad for such a high proof. The alcohol is very wanting. Doesn’t have the refinements of an excellent beer, but still worth a try.

(Flasche) Es hat eine fast bronzene Farbe, ist fast klar filtriert mit einer kleinen weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist alkoholisch, süß, honigartig, mit Wachs und Holunder Noten. Der Geschmack ist fast sirupartig, schwer, süß, mit einer angenehemen erdigen Note und einem alkoholischen Abgang.
(Bottle) It pours a nearly clear, nearly bronze colour with a small white head. There’s a aroma of alcohol, sweetness, honey wax and elder. The flavour is heavy, sirup like, sweet with an enjoyable peatiness, but with an alcoholic outflow.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from 2006. Time probably helped overall, colour was very nice, amber. Scent was sweet and flower, however the taste was a bit too alcoholic. Traces of almonds and dried fruits. Heavy malt influence and no hops. No bitter aftertaste at all. It is more likely a kind of wine than a beer.
