Vino de cereal desprovisto practicamente de co2, limpio y maduro donde los sabores de las maltas se disipan entre la levadura de uva....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours flat and oily. No head, naturally. Clear pour at first, lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.
Sweet candied fruit aroma. Complex but very faint.
Sweet flavor, follows the aroma for the most part.
Doesn’t live up to the expectations based on price and the hype from the retailer.

Slightly hazy amber with no head. Very sweet aroma and taste. Berries, malt, dried fruits, caramel, jam, some alcohol. No carbonation. Thick body. Not a thirst quencher but a good dessert beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ PPSG’10, man i love deciphering messy notes. Amber still pour. Sugarbomb full of sweet malts, fruit and sugars, without such alcohol would probably make this brew undrinkable, still a bit of warming but at 15%+ understandable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Brown/red color no head. Massive fruits and sweet aroma. Very sweet taste, full body. The sweetness makes hard to identify single flavors, doesn’t seem to drink a beer. Very low alcohol persepction.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from De Molen. Adventurous beer, sticky sweet with high alcohol %. The alcohol taste is evident and unfortunately overpowers the other flavours.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
little Bottle 237/1200 from K&B. Shared with bikesandbeer. Nice to see de molen in the states. Pours copper brown with no head. Nose is sweet and relatively innocuous, basically smells a bit boozy, but there isn’t a clear fragrance that I can pinpoint. Taste is sweet, and full of caramel and toffee, the mouthfeel is pretty nice and the high abv is obscured.
