4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big fruity, strawberry aroma. Heavy and sweet but very highly carbonated, giving it an interesting twist. Flavor is serious strawberry with a bit of old paperback. Finishes very clean almost cleansing with a mild cherry wood flavor.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
dark, murky brown beer, with plenty of beige foam. Aroma of malt, caramel, dark fruit and vanilla. Brett some fresh yeast. creamy on the palate, with malty taste with hints of molasses, candy, cake, again dark fruit, ripe plums spices and yeast. Something dry and sour at the end, with some connotation of red wine. In fact there is a special edition wine aged in barrels of Bordeaux. Alcohol well integrated.

Bottle at home. Pours cherry-red with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, hops and nuts. Taste is pretty much like the aroma but also with flavours of caramel and molasses. Full body and very active carbonation. Bitter and fruity finish. Awesome. I’ve had this one many times - even at the brewery and it never dissapoints. Love it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Bought at Plan B. Cap reads >MAY2017. Pours dark brown with huge fluffy cream/tan head. Roasted sweet malt, oily, melasse, licorice stick, spices, nutty, piney, yeast and during the second half of my glass dough, spring onion and lemongrass, aroma’s keep on opening up! Amazing! There’s blueberries in the muffin dough. I feel like I’m fucking stoned. Chocolate and mint coming in now. Taste is moderate sweet and below moderate bitter, yeastiness keeps sweet and bitter compact and adds a tart finish. Body is full and texture is slick, thick and oily. Carbo is spikey but activity is average. Very nice beer! And NAT & STRAF indeed, drinks easy, will get you tripping. Reminds me of certain members from the Rochefort family.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A Belgian Strong on the sugary-candy side of the spectrum. Despite the heavy malts, there’s still a lot of hops in this one. The carbonization is very sparkly, making it - despite all the sweetness - quite easy to drink.
