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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 Very pale golden beer with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very spicy and loaded with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Fairly peppery with a fresh spicy aroma. Flavour is quite boozy and alcoholic though. Pepper and a soft spiciness. As it warms some light strawberry aroma comes up along with some white grape and cherry. Surprisingly drinkable for a beer with so much alcohol in it. Some sharp cinnamon flavour on the back. Not a bad beer and quite a bit more subtle than it ought to be.

out of a red bull can while roaming the streets of Brussels. 12 percent at a little store? high in alcohol and medium booze flavor; sweet and not really reccomended

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Trastevere, Rome. Smells high in alcohol; almost vinous. Dark gold body with some carbonation. Thin white to slightly off white head. Some lace. Higher alcohol flavor. Smooth and strong. Somewhat sweet. Pretty good overall. Doesn’t taste like 12%. A nice understated sipper that gets you where you want to go quickly. Strong.

on tap at the Kulminator. pours almost clear golden with white head. nose is sweet grains, candy sugar, subtle spicyness and funk. flavor is sweet alcohol and candy sugar clash with wet grains and coriander. not much balance and beauty here. lots of alcohol in the finish. mouth feel is watery. this is really is an alcohol bomb. why did I waste a tasting at kulminator on this? man I guess I assumed they wouldn’t have a beer this bad on tap, but whatever, i guess i had a bad beer at kulminator once.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow of color with a weak off white head. An aroma of cucumber, fresh notes, hints of sweets and apples. A flavor of sweets, spice and dry finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bevuta alla spina al John Martin a Busalla; nel bicchiere molto fashion. Aroma alcolico, sapore tipo alcool da lavare i pavimenti, accentuatissimo nel retrogusto. Fastidiosa, birra da fighetti per ubriacarsi subito; peggio della Bière du Demon: almeno quella lo confessa di essere una cacata, questa se la tira.
