3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber-brown color with big beige head. Boozy and sugary aroma, a bit of spicy yeasts and lots of fruchtkompott. Taste is sweet, too sweet for my taste, with more candied sugar and candied fruits. Belgian Strong on Steroids, but on the unbalanced ones. Nice if you like heavy booze and sugar. Carbonation is still fine, not too aggressive. Quite nice, but nothing you can drink much of - too sweet taste.

Profunda en aroma y en boca. Dulce y poco dejo amarga, por lo que es fácil de tomar a pesar de los 11°

Good, strong taste, but too sweet for me. Try combining with cheesefondue or meatballs

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice colour and nice nose. But a very flat beer, the taste is very disappointing. Waaaay too sweet for me and the two other people who tried it with me...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
opaque, very dark brown with a tannish head that disappears quickly. smell is leathery, dark, raisins, alcohol. taste is very pruney, a little bit chocolatey, some brightness in it. distractingly sweet by the end of it. palate seems strangely thin but overall comes across well. this is a pretty nice, though largely straightforward beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep silky dark colour. Aroma is chocolate and dark toffee. Taste is rich & boozy, possibly too much so. A touch sweet with chocolate and fruitcake but ultimately rather syrupy. Not diggin this too much.
