2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 11%. The first whiff of the aroma is of chocolate. Then there is a sweet and fruity note with a bit of sour rag. Cloudy red copper colour. Very big stable rocky off-white head. The flavour is very sweet and fruity with a little sourness. Syrupy mouthfeel, a bit too much. Peppery aftertaste, but does not taste 11%. Perhaps better after a few years in the cellar.

Bottle at home. Traded via Borresteijn. Cheers man! Pours bit hazy amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is lots of sweet malt, light yeast and spices and toasted malt. The flavour is very sweet and has a long sweet juicy prune like substanse. Notes of toasted malt, sweet caramel and ripe fruit. Seems more like a Belgian Strong ale than a barley wine.
