3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brown with a thin offwhite head that leaves insane lacing. Aroma is of sweet caramel, toffee and the likes. Taste is sweet but not coma-inducing sweet, still really sweet though. Missing a little bitterness in there I think. Flavors of candies, maple syrup. Carbonation is light and body is full. Mouthfeel is kinda thick. Not bad at all, just missing a little complexity IMO.

intence sweet smell with diffrent aspects of sweetness. sugary, grainy, malty, bit caramel
good carbo ( maybe a small hint to high)
sweetness ( just like the smell) , earthy back, even get some coffee notes ( a very small bitter touch ) aftertaste even has the littlest amount of chocolate in it . nice . and for a gordon beer : impossibly nice !

Definitely a must taste; rich in flavour (and somewhat in alcohol), delicate and smooth to the finish. A lovely head, excellent palate and colour. Now brewed in Belgium in seems, probably at Steenhuffel. Available in my local Brussels pub!

A clear brown color with a off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with smoked and dark fruits notes hints of caramel and roasted malt,. Flavor is pretty much the same. Medium body and carbonation. Good one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brune rougeâtre, effervescence moyenne, mousse tombe vite. Malts caramel grillés, fruits foncés, chocolat, un rien métallique, toute petite amertume sur la fin. Un peu trop sucrée...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bb 07 11 2014. Magnificent pour of clear chestnut with a lasting half inch of cream and beautiful lacing. Nose of spicy apple, orange toffee, toasted nut, and dark bread. Front tastes of spicy caramel apple, raisins, dark cherry and grilled corn on the cob. Finish has chocolate, dates, orange, dark roasted grain and a touch of dry wood. Long finish has some cured tobacco. Medium-heavy body is sweet and has a smooth carbonation with just a small warmth from the mostly hidden abv. Merry Xmas indeed.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep dark brown colour with low creamy head and smooth body. Nose of big malt. Taste of roasted rich malt, nuts, torf, whiskey, strong alcohol, woods, vanilla and smoke. Not that easy to drink during summer time but imaging that it would be snowing outside didn’t make the beer any better.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A tough one. Loads of syrup, sugar, sweetness, malt and some hops. Big carbo, alc in the dominance. Definitely the right beer for a cold winter night. But I had that one in July. My fault maybe. But for that moment this beer was just in the near of being awful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
aspetto molto invitante..colore rosso rubino molto intenso..schiuma non eccessiva ma quanto basta.
aroma esplosivo,intenso e molto caratteristico..sicuramente alcolico,ma anche molto maltato,frutta scura,lieviti molto particolari,veramente uno spettacolo..è forte ma non mi stancherei mai di annusarlo..c’è qualcosa che non riesco ad identificare,ma non iporta..aroma da 9!
gusto molto particolare..alcolico quanto basta,lascia spazio al corpo ben maltato e al retrogusto amaro sul palato..
birra speciale,non da bere in tutte le occasioni viste le caratteristiche particolarmente "invadenti" ma,come indica la categoria,ogni tanto una di queste ci vuole!
