77ships (7353) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Draft glass @ Gollem. Pours black, little head. Nose is carries a light odd varnish note mixed with huge sweet syrup molasses & prune syrup, a Christmas-like, huge syrupy dark fruits with odd varnish note. Taste is thick varnish, almost touch nail polish, huge prune syrup, odd plastic note, big molasses, quite Belgian in character almost, glue, light blue cheese hops in the back, bark, figs, dates,… Body is super thick, syrup, light varnish. Very odd thick, Belgian qualities, some odd notes take it down for me but an interesting one. For some reason it reminds me of Traquair Jacobite Ale but this is better for me. Interesting too bad about some of the odd notes.
