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.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
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.

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".

Bottle: Pours slightly cloudy, light brown with a minimal ring of off-white... Fermented apple, alcohol aroma. Taste is sweet, apple and other light fruits....toffee....yeast..... Overall, the booze dominates....in a "I poured some cheap vodka in it" fashion.
