A nice strong beer with a characteristic hop taste. One of the better strong beers from Holland.

Sterk en goedsmakend bier. Niet bitter. Eén van mijn favorieten. Afdronk blijft lang hangen.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is pretty objectionable. Honeyed paper, cardboard. Little else. The taste doesn’t have much to commend it. Some honeyed bread, more paper. Syrup. A somewhat spritzy, full body. Overall, not good. A classic dutch imperial lager number.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml. can @ home. Procured from Albert Heijn in Antwerp. BBF 10/11/2014. Poured into a water glass. Dark urine golden, foamy white head. Smells quite sweet, corn, cheap syrupy sugar, candy apple, chemical, smell is definitely more enjoyable than expected. Taste is boozy chemical sweet apple & plastic, burns a bit in the back of the throat, cheapest synthetic honey imaginable, total plastic, flowers, boozy. Synthetic honey body. Not that bad for cheap hooch, I can see this one getting very nasty if you drink the whole can which I opted out of.

The Gladiator is my favorite heavy beer. I’m very surprised about the relative low ranking.
