4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours dark reddy orange with a small head. Aroma is rich, woody, toffee and molasses. Hint of meaty whisky. Taste is meaty toffee to start. Molasses. Minty whisky finish. Doesn’t taste the strength. Perfect winter night beer. Warms the belly. Brewdog do make some shit but when they hit the mark, they fucking do.

Deilig øl, mye sødme som er godt balansert med lang smak i munnen. Jeg synes den høye alkoholen er kamuflert godt. Alt i alt en spennende øl. Kjenner både ipa og belgiske smaker her.

Apoteosi del gusto che si realizza in un fortunato matrimonio tra la tradizione belga e la magia dell’invecchiamento nel whisky scozzese che odora di acqua salata che si infrange contro le scogliere e delle sterminate distese di erika delle highlands. Divina!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Vova’s place. Thanks Vova. Clear amber-chestnut color. Nice aroma of lots of whiskey, vanilla, wood, malt, caramel and a bit of alcohol. Very sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, with lots of whiskey, vanilla, a bit of nuts, a bit of stale hops, alcohol and a slightly bitterish finish. Medium to full-bodied, quite alcoholic, a bit syrupy.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A dark amber beer that pours with no head. It has a very rich red fruit, malt, currant and vanilla flavour, oak and sweet sugary sherbet finish. Very good and it has no burning alcoholic warmth to the beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle at home. (cellar temperature) Pours clear dark amber, no head - filtered. Intense caramel and toasty nose, with some smoky and bitter pine in the back. Medium to full body with resinous bitterness, added with some smoke. Sweetness all the way, alcohol warmth in the finish, ending round & bitter, aftertaste dry and little alcohol burn. Taste is grapefruit juice, some nuts, caramel and malts. A bit too harsh to be well balanced.

A massive, caramel, toffee, Barley Wine-esque, bold, deep, rich ale with a lovely hop hit and undertones of Belgium-ness. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Nice red color, average to medium sized off-white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is sweetish malts, sweetness, some oak and whisky influences in the aroma. Somehow I don’t really like it. Taste malts, oak, lightly alcoholic, sweetish, sweetish alcohol, bitter.
