Dark brown beer with beige foam head that looks like an espresso. Wow what is this sweet. Taste like Vitamalz. Sweetness masks the high alcohol content what makes this a sneaky one.

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.

1996 bottle drank 04/2015. Aroma of sweet malt, sherry, butterscotch, dust, rich dried fruits. Flavour is heavy sweet. It’s interesting how this beer has developed. It’s way to sweet for my taste, but I understand the appeal for others who enjoy this kind of beer.
