Sampled at the RBESG08 grand tasting. Hazy brown colour, medium beige head. Spicy and fudgy malt aroma with earthy and yeasty notes, and some alcohol. Medoim bodied and smooth. Very well balanced with a dry finish. Could have been very good with less alcohol.

Thanks to Beastiefan2K. Poured a clear deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of sweet malt. Caramel notes with light alcohol in the nose. Spice starts to show as the beer warmed. Nice malty flavor with a mix of esters and light alcohol. Sweet with a citrus finish. Medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing - hazy light red/orange beer - aroma of candi sugar, belgian fruitiness, strong alcohol, grapefruit rind, peach - spicy alcohol up front, and a light of bright fruity character that lasts throughout - loads of tangy orange and other citrus are apparent underneath a strong, but not overpowering sweetness - the citrus adds a tart character on the back end, and the spicy, warming alcohol returns - quite well-balanced for its strength.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber-orange colour with a creamy tan head. the aroma is just fantastic, orange peel, light toffee, banana and apricot. Lightly peppery with a fresh fruity pebbles sort of character. Warming brings up a soft minty character on the back. Rich and caramelly without being sticky or cloying. A lightly vineous character that works with all of the fruity yeastiness and light spice. Warming finish but for something this size, it is very well-balanced. I think it will age beautifully.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, Deep amber with beige creamy head. Sweet fruity aroma, some spice, malt, yeast and alcohol. Sweet vinious flavor with notes of ripe fruits, roasted malt, caramel, and vinious. The Alcohol is well hidden, and warms nicely in the end. I think this beer is perfect for keeping in cellar for 5 - 10 years.
