On tap at the pub during the RBSG. Clear golden color with a syrup sweet malt nose and a thin, off white head. Big candi sugar, caramel sweetness flavor with overripe oranges and some peach. Noticably big beer.

Draft at Mondial 2005. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes present. Perhaps I can smell some nobles and Saaz with some boozy undertones as well. I detect a tad of sulfur as well. Moderately hazy orange-honey color with an off-white head. Quite sweet to start with honey notes turning more grainy and quite cereal like. More sweetness in the finish. Moderately cloying. Alcohol is hidden well.

Hop/malt in the aroma, orange, with a small vanilla custard head. Highly malted flavour, strong presence of hops, fruity. Full bodied, well balanced, very good bitterness. Wonderful!

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2005
RBSG on tap at DDC Large creamy white head that floats on a sparkling clear deep gold body. Light malt in the aroma and a bit of piney hops. The flavor is mostly sweet from start to finish. Not too shabby if a brewer’s worst beer is a 3.4 don’t you think??

I’m drinking glorified malt liquor on the street in Montreal with the cops driving by, sirens running. Smells malty and boozy. A little nobel hops, Czech style. I didn’t get busted. Bottle from Delires du terroirs.

Deep golden color, malty nose with subtle, peachy fruity nose. Rich syrupy mouth with peaches, pears and apples. malty, rich finish. Pleasently warming and pleasently tasting. Great stuff

Un verre sur place, belle bière dorée-cuivrée, peu de mousse, goût frais malgré l’alcool, ample en bouche, bonne amertume, produit réussie.

rederic (2883) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2005
Amber orangeish color, with a soft foamy white head, leafy, pale malt, hop flower aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with crystal malt, leafy,grassy, having a touch of alcoholic warmth, in a good bittering hops finish.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of faint vegitable, nice big earthy hop profile, very malty and spicy. Flavor much the same and kinda sweet. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Solid brew!

Eructoblaster (2855) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
That beer was especially brewed for DDC 6th anniversary, and I choose it for my 250th rating. It pours a very nice gold body topped with an average white bubbly head that leaves a good lacing. Strong and well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, spicy and herbal hints. Taste is also great. It bears some sweet and honeyish notes. Very nice bittersweet finish. This is definitely one of the best European Strong Lagers you can have.
