3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: alcohol, raisins, dark berries, sweet malts. Appearance: hazy dark brown, small white/beige head. Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: alcohol again, cherries, heavy sweets continue. Overall: well, not so sure about this one, has great elements of a nice Belgium Strong Ale, but then the alcohol is too dominant ruining the experience. Produced March 2009, bottle from Beerhawk, England.
