Drank with Rik at Cafe Moenen 13-2-2014. The beer literally looks like tea. Almost no foam. Sweet taste. Hints of caramel, sugar, huney and dominant ’roggebrood’. Alcohol very present. Nice beer, though a bit unbalanced.

This is one sugary booze bomb. Aromas of corn and corn syrup. Flavors are sweet and corn syrup like. So sweet. I’m going to brush my teeth now.

Since they say this is cellarable for 25 years perhaps it wouldn’t be as sweet in 2039, but as it it’s pretty damn sweet. Nice though and abv incredibly masked considering how strong it is. Nice beer but you better like sweetness. Yo!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours an orangey colour with little to no head. Taste is sweet but hides the ABV astonishingly well. I have tried beers with 5% less ABV that seem more boozy. Mouthfeel is thick as would be expected and pours with a real glug. Hardly any carbonation. Almost as though it was brewed to be strong with little regard for taste or aroma. I have tried much, much better beers from this brewery.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ginormous beer!! Pours a ruby red brown, almost thixotropic. An aroma of dark currants and sweet oranges. The taste is amazing. Fruit, malt, almost liqueur like. There must be masses of hops in here as the balance is there but on the sweet side. Huge hit of treacly booze coats the tongue. At 15% this is very drinkable. Dangerous and utterly gorgeous.
