2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A dark orange beer with a huge though collapsing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol as well as hints of caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol which gives it notes of metal. The alcohol runs warming over the tongue, but is too much for me. The flavor also contains notes of caramel. The finish is warm and quite dry - as if the alcohol suck the water out of the mouth.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Label says brewed in Edinburgh for John Martin. Deep golden with an almost absent head. Sweet malts with a pronounced bitter finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. But still this is an extremely potent beer. Are we sure this is top-fermented? 150398

Canned. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts as well as some spices. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts and some fruit. The fun thing is, if I wouldn’t know it’s a belgian strong ale, I would go for the fact it’s a very wellbalanced ESL or ML, I still think it’s a wellbalanced thing, even though I would wait for a bit more both aroma and flavourwise from a Belgian Strong Ale.

Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Fruity estery artificial raspberry aroma. Sweet and fruity, sweaty and unrefined. Finishes with some syrup and light grassy hops. Bold and clumsy. Not good.

22nd February 2008. Sweet aromatic maltiness dominates. Slight sour malt finish that lingers well in to the aftertaste.
