A decent strong Amber. Pours a very nice bright orange with lots of sediment. Smells fruity and malty, raspberries and plums. Taste is very malty and boozy, with a Caramelized sugar that sticks with you long after the drink. Had in the bottle.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch B4 07 4. AROMA: sweet malt background with caramel and spicy notes. strong spicy alcohol presence but not solventy. APPEARANCE: coppery color and translucent. average ivory head with good retention. lacing is present due to high alcohol derived viscosity. TASTE: sweet caramely like flavour. high alcohol presence. low bitterness and a semi-sweet finish. PALATE: medium-low body with a strong alcohol presence. OVERALL: a beer that lacks the malt complexity of the competition and with a very strong alcohol presence.

250ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a beautiful clear amber color with many tiny particles suspended inside. Forms a small tan head and retention is low. Not many lacings are left in the glass, however a small layer remains on the top for a long time
S: Very sweet and Belgian style, I mean, sweet candy, honey, Belgian yeasts, sweet grains and alcohol
T: As the nose. Sweet upfront. Sweet candy sugar, sweet grains, honey, Belgian yeasts followed by a mild but pleasant hoppy bitterness
M: Creamy heavy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Aftertaste is sweet and bitter at the same time
O: Great beer. Belgian to the bone

Aroma is caramel, malt and Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet, malty, pruney with a hint of flat coke and slight sourness. Strongest beer I've ever drunk. Quite subtle considering the abv.

Gylden brun klar med høyt beige skum som minker fort. Lukter søtt av karamell og brunt sukker. Søtlige smaker av brendt karamell og malt. Kjenner at det er en del alkohol i denne. Skarp, bitter men forholdsvis kort
