DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle. Nice clear deep red with a small but stable beige head. Aroma of malt, fruits, caramel, some fruit candies, spicy hints and some alcohol. Sweet flavor with caramel, honey hints and light fruitiness. A bit of alcohol towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Too sweet but still OK.

psilosophy (544) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - SEP 18, 2010
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée tirant sur le rouge, mousse faible, ne tient pas. Bière très sucrée avec des arômes de caramel, de bonbon et de whisky, Hormis qu’elle soit trop sucrée, elle n’est pas non plus des plus agréable en bouche car la texture est plutôt syrupeuse et manque de carbonation. Pour autant, ne soyons pas trop sévère car la bière se boit sans devenir écoeurante (tient bien le réchauffement) et la sensation d’alcool est assez bien masquée (8,4% pourtant). Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2011
Bouteille 330ml, dégustée au Bistro des Bières Belges à Saint-Hubert. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez malté de caramel sucré, léger d’alcool, de sucre brun et de fruits (notes de cerises et de prunes, traces d’agrumes). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes sirupeuses. Léger goût fruité sucré (notes de cerises, traces de raisins) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût malté de caramel assez sucré avec des notes de butterscotch puis en finale un goût d’alcool doux-moyen domine avec de faibles notes de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-long, moyen-léger amer d’alcool avec un goût sucré résiduel et des traces fruitées (moût de cerises). (hiver 2006-07)

suprchunk (2510) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a light, light red. Weird for something that bills itself as a Red. And plasters tartan all over its can. Fast fading head, with no lacing. Slightly malty. Slightly. Maybe I smell hops? Maybe. If I didn’t try hard to smell something I wouldn’t have smelled anything. Little malty up front. Floral hops out back. Might not even be hops. They may have actually thrown flowers in here. Little sweetness that sticks around on your lips for a while. Like after eating a lollipop. Sticky and thin. I could drink maybe one of these at a sitting. Maybe, but I’m having a tough time choking this 500ml can down right now.
