Bottle. Off-white head. Orange unclear body. Aroma of black berries. Rather spicy flavor with rounded alcohol taste, yet still pleasant for such a strong beer. .

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, BB "I184"?? Poured a deep, murky brown with a fizzy, quickly-dissipating beige head (uh-oh). Deep, dark fruits abound in the aroma (plums & dates), rounded off by some Belgian yeast, alcohol, and spices. Flavors followed the aroma well, with the fruits and alcohol leaving some sticky resin behind some teeth. Alcohol was a tad bright on the tip of the tongue and at the finish. Dark fruit and spices joined the hotter-than-necessary alcohol at the finish. Could’ve used better balance.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Hazy ruby amber colour with a big and stable tanned foamy head. Yeasty-fruity bubblegum aroma with peppery spice. Sweet flavour, full bodied, almost fizzy carbonation. Initially sweet malty, fruity (oranges, plums) and caramel. Sweet malty, spicy (coriander) finish with notes of herbal hops. I had to sneeze more than 50 times after a few sips (dry hopping ? – I´m very allergic to hops).

30 cl bottle. Amber colour with a small head. Aroma of candy, sugar, caramel and yeast. Nice complex flavour of sweetness, sugar and some indefinable spice, but it turns out very alcoholic at the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
fresh 30cl bottle. copper body with a small white head which disapates quickly. Carmely smell with a hint of alcohol. The alchol shocked me when if first hit my tongue, but it quickly settled down. Sweet malt flavor with some yeastiness. Suprising thin for a quad. Bought a sixer, but it only takes one of these to make me warm and happy. Will try the others after some time in the cellar and update acordingly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with fading white head. The aroma is very caramely with burnt sugar, toast, some plum, and some faint, sweetish yeast. The aroma has lots of burnt sugar as well, and quite a good sum of prune. The finish has some ashy hops, but the dryness balances the richness pretty well. There is, of course, some yeast in there, too, and not as much alcohol taste as it seems there should be for a 10%abv. I like this.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown colour, very slightly hazy, huge head. A sweet, bready aroma with, I think, a little peach and some yeast. Sweet taste of malt and alcohol. Warming, gentle, and very, very wonderful.
