2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark ruby black beer, weak head.
Smell is sweet caramel toffee with some subtle chocolate and fruit. Touch of leather, salt and alcohol.
Taste is overwhelmingly sweet with a touch of alcohol astringency. Like thick syrup, sticky. The sweetness is rather undefined.
Wondering if I got a damaged batch.

Bottle. Small tan head with average retention. Clear dark brown with reddish hues. Aroma is ripe sweet fruits and brown sugar, quite clean. Flavour is mostly sweet, prune, with slight bitterness and some complexity. A very sweet beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Dark brown colour, almost black. Nice tan head. Taste is very complicated: fruits, hops, raisins. There is obviously some sweetness from dark malts and the high ABV, but the aftertaste is dry. Probably enough hops (maybe other herbs too?) to balance the whole thing nicely. I had to admit that I drank it too cold, but it was still impressive.

Deep brown, rich, pretty delicious. Not sure how these guys can pack so much punch on the ABV without you noticing - really well balanced strong beer.

Riecht sehr angenehm ist aber viel zu süss und der Alkohol sticht extrem hervor. Einmal ist genug.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch KAD01217A. AROMA: perfumy and spicy alcohol aroma with slight notes of raisins. APPEARANCE: dark ambar with some ruby highlights and clear. Average ivory head with medium-low retention. some lacing. TASTE: faint raisins notes with an absurdly high overall sweetness that lasts from the start of the taste to the finish and beyond, masking the more faint malt notes. low bitterness with a very high sweet finish. PALATE: medium-full body with medium carbonation. some alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a belgian beer that resembles a dark syrup.
