Thanks to rcasta who brought it all the way down from Porto, Portugal. Whew! This beer was created to get you drunk fast. Alcohol too overpowering.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Canned 50 cl. A fully golden beer. Nice white head. Decent lacing. Fruity malty alcoholic nose. Very strong. Slightly pleasant. Hints of marmite. Metallic taste. Malty. Too much alcohol in this one. Some faint hop character. For a malt liquor it’s rather good, but for a belgian strong ale, its poor. Way better than any Amsterdam malt liquor.

Thanks Beastie. I love the can. Malt Liquor Belgian style. Poured a clear gold yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was sweet and grainy with alcohol in the nose. Fairly sweet flavor. The finish was bitter and peppery from alcohol.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cl. can. Medium gold color with a frothy white head. Mostly corny aroma, but there seems to be underlying light stone fruit as well. Medium body with creamy carbonation. It’s all about the alcohol. It burns. The flavors, if any, are rather dissolved in it. Resembles high gravity American lagers, but definitely not so sickening. Drunk for little money. Who needs flavor for that?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked bottle. Deep golden-amber color, poor head that doesn’t hold and no lace. Smell of fruits, candy, glazed fruits, marzipan, but rather artificial.
Body is lighter than it should, flavor of fruits, spices, pepper, but again rather artificial. A wannabe champagned like beer, though not absolutely bad, in fact i wouln’t mind to have another for some other day.

(on bottle)Having not that big a choise, I was suckered into buying not one, but two bttles of this awfull stuff. Calling a Belgian Strong Ale is a joke, this is pure Malt Liqour. Stingy, sweet aroma, colored like horsepiss and with a big white heaad, this brew continues to be a cloying, powdereating musclebunch of forced alcohol and nothinhg else.
