On tap at Birreria Accademia. First aroma was of wet socks. Two finger off-white head with clear golden ruby color. Strong alcohol taste and darker malt tones coupled with faint citrus tastes. Overly carbonated, an average beer but Iíd rather drink something else at a bar.

0,33l bottle from British Store, Budapest. Clear, dark amber color with non-durable, white head. Honey and alcohol aroma with fruits and herbs. Intensive malty aroma with honey. Sweetness, much alcohol, barley, spices and herbs, a little resin. Heavy sweet taste. Medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Grainy, sweet finish with a light herbal flavour. This beer is like a barley wine. Intensive alcohol and grain feeling.

Strong and balanced. I could taste some bread. The carbonation is soft and the finish is abrupt and dry.

Exactly like a Cognac but a beer. Amber in color, good carbonation, very malty but dry, almost no presence of hops, but balanced. Some orange. bread. Loved the balance of this beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale tawny in colour with a faint aroma of mainly alcohol but a little malt in there too. Quite sweet and malty but surprisingly gentle in flavour with just enough bitterness in the finish to keep it from being bland. Not the best strong ale Iíve ever tried but still very pleasant on a cold winterís evening.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Clear crimson, strong white head. Caramel, dried fruit and light roastiness on the nose. Full-bodied, balanced bitterness and delightful sweetnesa. Finishes bittersweet and warming finish. Nice, what!
