Bottle Vines Dr. Phillips. Sweet sherry and prunes the instant aromas and flavours. This is an intriguing and interesting combination of styles. Becomes quite sugary midway but this is to be expected for a beer this strong. Manages to retain its balance well.

Pours a golden amber on tap with frothy off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is fruity, bready, and caramel malts. Taste is all of that, but kind of dances around and ends a bit boozy sweet on the tongue, Surprisingly well balanced and an easy drinker for the abv. I very much enjoyed this, would like to find it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer fest. Pours clear brownish amber with a nice beige head leaving small lace. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly sour, spicy, yeasty, bready, raisins, fidgeas and hoppy. Flavor quite similar to aroma, acidy sourish and malty in start, alcohol and spices add on the middle and bitterness with some peppery tones towards end. Very nice

One of my least favorite beers EVER! Off flavor overly thick palate. Not something I would buy again with out a taste test to make sure I did not get a skunked one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Sam’s Quik Stop, opened 5/11/12. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of apple, stone fruits, bread and tinny notes. The taste is citrus, apples, bread, caramel. Intensely fruity, almost like a cider, and really not what I was expecting at all. Medium bottled. Cloying.

Little aroma, though it is of potpourri. Color is light golden wheat with a slight pink hue. Flavor is very sweet, strawberries, hibiscus. Slight taste of chlorine. Idont like how this tastes like fruit punch. Too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of grain, roasted, nutty and caramel, perfume and cooked lemon for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy slightly off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, medium orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This is a nice Belgian Strong Ale and a very nice beer overall from Gordash.

A lovely brew that pours a golden amber. Just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering.
