3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap and served in the correct beaker. Looked quite red in the dim bar, and eveloped an intense head. Sweet is sweet, flavor was rich and sweet caramel dominating, with just a hint of sour alchol. very rich. a Nice breew, although I abit sweet for me. I might have to get it again just to stare at the glass.

This is a very sweet tasting beer, you can smell the caramel and also taste it with a hint of vanilla. The first time I had it I was impressed by the so called glass it was served in.

Had this one from a bottle in Aufsturz with the suggested glass - the whole setup looked more like it came from a chemistry experiment than a brewery. Sweet without being cloying. In love with the ruby pour of this one [may have been closer to amber, depending on the lighting]. Great lacing and a massive fruity aroma. Alcohol reasonably masked. Lots of fruitys flavors there - a Doppelbock with the maltiness and heavy chocolate stripped away. Would like to try again without the gimmick.

Draft. Poured a reddish color with a large head. A slighty sweet aroma. Had a nice sweet taste to it also. Pretty damn good.

Amber color with reddish shine. Medium head. Aroma is toffee. Taste is on the sweet side with good malty accents. In the afthertaste you can notice herbs, some spices and a faint bitterness

750ml bottle. Dark amber in colour with a nice white head. Toffee flavours dominate and the sweetness is just a bit too much. Whilst I consider this a very enjoyable beer and do rate it quite well it has probably shifted more units as a consequence of it’s quirky stand and drinking vessel than it would have done if sat on the shelf next to some of it’s more impressive Belgian neighbours.

Excellent beer with sweet malty flavors...would complement a dessert nicely. Nice full mouthfeel. Not a beer you’d drink 6 or more of in one sitting, as the 8% ABV will knock you down quickly.

Was reddish in color with a foamy white head. Bitter sweet malt smell. Tasted like sweet fruit and malt. Very pleasant overall!

I expected more from it’s reputation among travel magazines. A below average Belgian. Minimal head with heavy sediment. Cloudy with quite a bit of sediment. I poured from this 750ml bottle into a trappist glass. The bottle was in the refrigrerator for more than a week and I poured it carefully Very sweet caramel flavor with some citrus background.
