bottle. clear copper-red with a medium white head. aroma has loads of rye bread, caramel, and nuts. malty bread flavour is dominant...mostly sweet and yeasty. it’s straightforward for the most part. drinkable yet lacking depth past the sweet bread.

Not as good as I expected. It is good, and dark. But it was not so alcoholic in taste as I expected. It was nice after all.

Bottle shared with tupalev at Smokeless Joe. Pours a clear bubbly dark ruby with a spare light-brown head. Very mild aroma of sweet malt, yeast and sour fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, fruit and brown sugar. I was surprised to see this was 9% as you can’t taste it at all. Medium bodied. Nothing special but a good Belgian Strong nonetheless.
