for such a nice bottle, I expected this beer to be much better than what it was.

Le canon faisait référence au gros vin rouge qui tache bien, et qui fait vriller les boyaux... Le mot est maintenant associé à une bière néerlandaise qui cherche à tonner aussi fort que le canon, avec ses 11,6 % abv. !! Oh crainte à l’approche de ce produit, qui est en plus réalisé par un grand groupe... Elle est catégorisée par ratebeer dans les « malt liquor » .. Qu’est-ce à dire ?? Le brasseur nous dit quant à lui « krachtig en machtig van smaak » … On ne demande qu’à le croire !!! Couleur doré moyen très brillant, à la clarté pure. Bulles en fontaine centrale de très fines bulles par centaines, joli. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt, beurre, babeurre, pointe d’amandes, citron. 1ère bouche souple au bon ensemble malt/fruits blancs. Arrière-bouche très douce, quasi caressante. Mais pas complexe (il ne faut pas exagérer …). 2ème sur un ensemble fruité et un rien mielleux. Arrière-bouche vraiment douce, surprenante. 3ème sur fruit, malt, miel. Arrière-bouche douce(reuse). Longueur plaisante, où l’alcool se manifeste, mais sans soutien aux saveurs. Jambes finement marquées. Alcool assez brut de décoffrage. Finale très plaisante. CONCLUSION : une bière bien agréable, que je m’apprêtais à fusiller, mais qui mérite pas mal d’éloges... Elle a juste le défaut de sa conception (…), et un alcool sans concession (!!).

Klar lys gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av lys malt og karamel. Smak av malt karamell og alkohol. Lett bittersøt avslutning. Import.

Hard to say whether this beer is actually nice because of its taste or because its so strong... Decent beer though

Gangstergafje (284) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Crystal clear golden beer with a white foam head. The appearance is not special whatsoever. The smell is extremely sweet and is overwhelmed by the alcohol smell. The taste is also extremely sweet and way to alcoholy. There is also a hint of metal. Also I can distinguish a bread like aroma. The beer could be better if there is a little less alcohol in it.

bkurtz (1006) - PERU - APR 27, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear golden with big bubbles in the head. Sweet, heavy aroma. Alcohol is dominant in the taste. Somewhat like cough syrup, just too strong.

Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoet, likeur, mout. Smaakt zwaar en heel zoet. Vies.

Zlotta (319) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 4, 2015
0,33 l bottle from AH Roermond, best before 19/5/2015. Clear, golden with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, white head. Quite intense, malty and pleasant aroma of biscuits, pear, peach and a bit of peppery fusel. Very sweet taste of biscuits, pear, peach and yeast which is quite okay but a bit unround up to then. But, this is followed by an unbelievably sweet and at the same time very peppery and alcoholic, harsh finish, making it very difficult to swallow. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Way too sweet and too much alcohol make this a cheap and unpleasant beer. Just awful, couldn’t finish it. At least a new style covered.
