BOBANDDOUG (61) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Poured from 33cl bottle, thanks to a friend at AB/Inbev ( THANKS! ). Medium copper color, with fluffy, off white head, lingering a bit, into alot of lacing. Smell of malt/caramel. Tastes of raisins, malt, and spice, maybe a mix of cloves & ginger? This beer hides the ABV pretty well, there is a warm finish of alcohol, but finishes really clean, and dry. Damn good beer, not a session beer as others have mentioned, but, how many 9% ABV are? Just the ticket on a cold winter evening in St. Louis. Inbev, how about turning this brew loose stateside?

jamaty (1150) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Bonito color cobre con un par de dedos de espuma ocre que pronto desaparece. Ligero aroma a miel, plátano y especias. Cuerpo y carbonatacion medias. Primero frutal, plátano y algo de naranja. Luego predomina el dulce y aparece algo el alcohol, de forma contenida y agradable. Buen conjunto.
