3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich deep dark copper with a puffy and well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of dense sweet caramel, light fruits and butterscotch. Starts very sugary sweet with a thick malty palate. Bready Belgian yeast flavors are also present, leading to a sticky candi sugar finish with a touch of warming alcohol. Could use a little more bitterness to counteract the massive sweetness, but otherwise a nice Belgian strong that hides its alcohol quite well.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Way too sweet for me and friends. Too carbinated. Too high in alcohol. Too creamy. Maybe as dessert beer, but much better competitors there. Comparable to soft drink when you are expecting beer.

Just finished my final project, so it?s time for a beer. This one looks and smells better then the rest from the box-o-belgians I bought. Nice taste too! Glad this one got saved until now!

[Draft] A dark red beer with a beutiful head where the bubbles in the lower part goes up and in the top part goes down. The aroma is very sweet with note of berries especially cowberries, yeast, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet, with loads of cowberries, notes of hops and a dry hoppy end. It has a nice round mouthfeel.

Draft. Dark Amber color with a big off-white head. Rich malt flavors that dominate the yeast and plum flavors. Nice Belgian tang. Not as alcoholic in flavor as I thought, and surprisingly malty.

Yeasty aroma, slightly sweet in both aroma and taste. A beautiful specimen when properly poured and served, showing both legs and lace on the sides of your glass. Dark and cloudy. Allow it to warm slowly to enjoy the full range of flavors that emerge as the temperature rises.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty sweet aroma with plums. Some hop aroma out of the bottle that dissipates as the beer warms and gives way to the aforementioned. Golden red hue with an enormous tight tan head that dissipates gradually and leaves no lacing at all. Thick toffee syrup flavor that is a bit cloying. Alcohol flavor is definitely present and contributes to the dry finish. Palate is medium to heavy with a modest carbonation twinge that, when coupled to the alcoholic hotness, contributesd to a very dry finish for a beer that is so incredibly sweet. Overall this beer is equal to the sum of its parts. I am particularly stricken by the complex aroma and plum flavors.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pure dark red with a large lasting beige head. Lovely lacing left on glass. Huge sweet aroma of caramel toffee, raisins, fairy floss and a bit of spice. Smooth silky full mouthfeel. Clean caramel malt flavours, a bit of chocolate there too? Nice spice to finish it off. ABV is very well masked. Really top stuff, goes down easy enough to be a session beer!

One of the best looking beers I've seen. Dark red with a tan head. Aroma is of malt and sweetness. Taste is very sweet and you can taste lots of alcohol. Looks better than it tastes.
