3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden pour with a white head. Strong malt and alcohol aroma, a little bit of candied fruit on the end. Sweet and dried fruit flavor, a little alcohol on the finish. Excellent beer for its style and although a bit heavy for the mediteranean weather still pretty refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
20110117 12oz bottle thanks to dmac. Iíve been aging this one until it reached proper maturity. Phenomenal aroma of banana-bubblegum paint thinner is so overpowering that itís making me excited for my first sip almost immediately. Lovely pale yellow beneath thin white foam that lasts. Flavor is actually not as shockingly bad as expected, but is almost totally dominated by the alcohol and some waffle-like sweetness. Lingering heat. Meh, Iíve had worse. Thanks for the Malta tick, Dave!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Malta Festival outside European Parliament (Brussels). Golden body with small but promising head. Nose quite strong and noticeable Alcohol content. Taste is sweet, with bread and malts, but also quite alcy. Too much for me. Quite creamy texture. Malt liquour, not a style with promise.
