4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle foamed over slightly upon opening: pours a clear deep orange amber with an airy froth of white head. Has a sweet dark caramel and biscuity malty nose with some raisin notes and fruity esters. Body starts with effervescent carbonation, good fullness and rich dark caramel malty sweetness with some dark fruity complexity and mild bitter balance before a smooth sweet toasty finish. True to style and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby with a nice foamy head. Aroma is a bit breadier and more caramel than the standard version. Taste is similar to the standard version but the finish isn't as sweet. Decent but it feels like they sacrificed some flavor for ABV.

Copper beer with good carbonation and head retention as well as lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma and flavor, well balanced bitterness and sweetness. It has a dry finish, spicy, peppery and notes of wine yeast. Very strong flavors. Excellent beer, even though not my style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Heavy pfst opening the bottle/slight foamer.Didnt pour all head though,had two finger head.Good lacing. Slightly hazy peach/orange carmel color.
Aroma of carmel malt,bready spice some floral/fruit. Classic belgian aroma notes.
Taste is nice a carmelly bready with foaming full carbonation.Some orange fruit flavors with spice,somewhat clovish. Nice rounded taste with complexity.Almost not seeming like this strong of a beer,but alot of flavor. Drinks well and I love the finish.It tapers nicely with a pepperyness almost minty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Dany for smuggling powdered bull testicles into the frigid northlands for him. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a medium sized white head. Sweet candy and a light bit of yeast, a good amount of oxidized plum. Medium bodied, warm and sweet, lots of sticky candy. Fuzzy phenols and musk on the finish, warm and toasty. Smooth and warm, but still easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep clear amber color ale with a large foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma of fruity ester with some residual sugar and some dry fruits notes is quite intense. Taste is also a complex mix between light alcohol ester notes with some dry fruits and some residual sugar with light warming notes of alcohol. Body is quite full with good carbonation and some alcohol was apparent. Nice level of complexity but still a tad too sweet for my taste buds which could have been levelled out with a 2-3% reduction in ABV.
