3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep red beer with a huge chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of raisins, pears, cinnamon, oranges, and even hints of carrot. The flavor is sweet with clear notes of alcohol, but also lots of fruit, raisins, pear, cinnamon, and peach. A somewhat weird combination, but very nice. It is quite carbonated, yet the mouthfeel is smooth. Thanks Alex (fiulijn) for bringing this to Denmark before it was available here.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Light brown with an orange glow and a thick, stable almost whipped creamish head. Lots of roasted malt in the aroma. First impression is sweetness, a massive, sticky sweetness. But as things gradually settle on my palate more subtle features are detected. Flavours of roasted- and caramel malt. Rather complex composition with notes of overripe fruit, almost vinous - like desert wine. And you even get a short bitterness at the end. A lovely beer - but still a bit too sweet. 130905

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, Dark rubyish brown colour with huge beige creamy head. Aroma is dry dark fruit, some sourness and some slight yeast and alcohol. Flavour is raisins, metal, caramel and some bittering hops. Flavour hides the alcohol well. Not very exciting, I liked the blonde (golden) one way better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Cloudy ruby. Aroma of toffeish malt with some berry-like acidity. Sweet and solidly malty with rounded mouthfeel. The peppery alcohol adds some complexity, but it fails to impress.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2009 2008-12-28, bottle at Highlander, Parma, 7-5-7-3-13=35
Dark brown color with red shades; nice creamy head. Caramel aroma, alcoholic too. Medium body in the beginning, thinner later, with a strong flavor of mature caramel, light alcohol feeling, correct bitterness. Unimpressive.

Dark color, huge head. Mature aroma of malt and caramel, notes of roasted barley. Sweet and well malty, with a good liquorice touch; alcohol-warming; full mouthfeeling. Maybe too sweet for the most, but a good bomb beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle @ Fish&Beer, Copenhagen. Pours dark brown with a large brown foam. Aroma is sweet & strong (concentrated) on yeast, dark fruits, caramel & sugar. Good & solid mouthfeel. Slight metallic notes. Not much flavor (yeast, nuts & alcohol) - wanted to taste a complex strong ale but something, perhaps the alcohol is overpowering everything else in this Belgium strong ale!
