3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden with yeast particles and a large, white head.
Fresh and malty nose with notes of citrus and vanilla.
Rather lively palate with a strong and warm fullbodied flavour.

Its a good, solid belgian, doesnt differentiate too much from most belgians but in no way bad. Its not as heavy as a lot of Strong Ale's, pours with a big head.

Amber colour, white head. Too sweet for my taste, a hint of liquorice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color. Quite good Strong Belgian Ale, sweet; ligth Madeira character (the Magnum bottle is 4 years old); I like it enough, but it's not extraordinary.

according to a foodanalyst this beer was not well produced, the malts were not fully cooked, so there was a kind of raw bean taste in it.

Extra large white head, lotsa sticky lacing. Hazy orange color. Maly, spicey nose. Medium body. Malty, nutty flavors. Finish is sweet, fruity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Three-inch fluffy white head - like a meringue. Murky orange in color, as if a milkshake had been made out of oranges and mud. Overly carbonated. Moderately spiced - pepper, herbs and a whiff of citrus. Bitterness. All the ingredients are there, but they don't come together all that well. Lacks sweetness and the herbs overwhelm.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy brown with a thick fluffy head. Fruity aroma. Some raisin, some prune, and very interesting. Very subtle in alcohol, you don't even know the alcohol is there. Very rich and malty. Very balanced. Very nice brew. Really enjoyed it.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Just came into Ramsey Liquors. Pours hazy brown. Thick fluffy head. Very fruity aroma. Can smell some malt/carmel and a mix of raisin and prune. All uphill from there. Very rich malty flavor and fruity. Reminded me of prune and raisin, but a whole lot more. @ 8%, it drinks like a thirst quenching gatoraid, making your palate crave for more and salavate. You don't even think of it as an alcoholic beverage. Absolutely outstanding.
