Sweet, malty nose. Ruby colour, with a fair sized creamy head. Caramel, treacle flavours, sweet, warming, like cognac. A robust example of the style.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
Quite interesting beer. Pretty malty and spicey. Pretty powerful and sweet. A lot of different things in this beers are interesting. I would call it a nice fusion beer.

Quite light and fruity. It surprised me that the er was 8,8 ABV!!!. A really thirst quencher and a party starter. However a little artificial and chewinggum alike.

TaktikMTL (5655) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Canette de 500 ml obtenue via les Importations Privées Bièropholie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel, de fruitée et une légère touche d’alcool. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée rougeâtre avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel et d’alcool. La durée de l’arrière goût est moyenne. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture crémeuse. L’effervescence en bouche est moyenne. Présence d’épices en arrière goût (?). Je m’attendais à une bière ordinaire mais finalement j’ai été agréablement surpris. (Rating #367)

Darker amber, brown coloured with some carbonation and a small off-white head. Malty sweet, light roasted aroma. Full palate with some sprankling mouthfeel. Finish is bitter roasted and creamy alcoholic. Alcohol steps forward in the end. Nice.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Sampled in Nancy, France: poured a beauituful red with large tan head into a thistle. Aroma was malty and bready. Flavor was fruity with malty overtones, and a soft breadiness. Carmel and slight roast mixed in. medium bodied. On tap this wasn’t a bad beer, and it didn’t seem very lager like at all?

TarcisioVasco (131) - Ribeirão Preto (SP)., BRAZIL - MAY 20, 2013
Cerveja com percepção de caramelo e toffee dos maltes, alcool presente, amargor e corpo abaixo das expectativas para uma cerveja para seu teor alcoólico.

Embrouille (2823) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2008
Canned 50cl. It pours an amber beer with a nice tanned head. The nose is of peaches, caramel, coconut, apples and bubblegum. A hint of cinnamon. The flavor is of malt, caramel and coconut. Alcoholic. Some fennel and cherry showing up. Caramel in the finish. Nicely peppery. A hint of cinnamon appearing. A good beer.

This is surely a Belgian Strong Ale??? Deep red-brown colour. Aroma has sweet red fruits, syrup, jam. Flavour is similar. Low carbonation. Quite silky but also a bit thin.
