3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB 2014, slightly chilled. Opens with a fizz. Forms a huge head and takes ages to pour into the snifter as a result. Red brown with huge foamy off-white head. Smell - sweet cherry, raspberry and malts, slight earth. Body is medium, foamy and carbonation is quite high. Taste - just comes across as sharp and sweet to start. Very malty, and the alcohol is right there in your face. Some cherry comes in later, banana esters, spice, residual sugars, liquer sweetness. The smell is great but the taste is unrefined. This could do with another few years in the bottle I think.

As many others have noted, this beer is very sweet. And finishes quite boozy and warm. Notes of dark, old-fashioned fruits that no one really eats any more-- such as raisins, prunes, currants, etc.-- dominate the mid profile, before heading to the ethanol finish. I really donít care for this one.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light brown hazy pour with big off white head. You can smell it already while itís going into the glass. Toffee up front and vanilla and bread, very nice and inviting aroma. The taste is dark caramalised sugar but not too sweet. Again toffee, vanilla and sweet tropical fruits with very nice bitter on the back of the tongue. Medium to full bodied with pretty present carbonation. Very beautiful beer!! Donít let the weird chinese looks of the bottle fool you. Amazing Belgian Strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours topaz brown with a ruby heart - and clear with a foamy beige head that fades to a rim + coating quite quickly. Little to no lacing. Aroma is boozy darkfruits - plums, dates and raisins - and somewhat floral spice. Taste follows the nose with more alcohol and a bit less spice. You can feel this 10.5 ABV train coming. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Very sweet aftertaste with winegrape-boozy overtones. A high quality Belgian Strong Ale - but there are better.

Draft. Pours hazy reddish medium brown with a creamy beige head. Tastes sweet, like very light syrup and light dry green grapes. Low/medium body and carbonation. Dry feel. Smells like sweet brown sugar, cinnamon, and syrup.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating number #200 : Bottle. Pours a dark ruby body, with a light brown head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a very good lace. Faint aroma of roasted malts, a little alcoholic, but somewhat metallic, which I didnít like. Heavy sweet taste, with notes of alcohol, sugar, curacao, roasted malts. Low to average carbonation level, medium bodied, oily texture. A nice treat.
