The coolest glass around. Body was amber with a great white bubbly head with legendary Belgium lacing. Aroma was spicy and sweet. Flavour is quite sweet and nicely bitter. The finish is dry and lasting.

Rosey red beer, with a strongly alcoholic nose. Very nice toffee notes to its flavour with additional vineous qualites. A smooth and pleasant drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty, doughy aroma, cherry, blackcurrant, definite alcohol presence. Sweet and fruity, pretty much in line with the aroma with a smooth shortbread flavor. Remains fruity with grape and papaya flavors right through to the finish. Alcohol is only mildly noticeable.

Loved this Beer. Poured a lovely dark golden color, with a medium size lasting head. Great flavors of apricots, caramel and spices. The beer got better after every mouthful, considering the ABV.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderfully spicy, peachy, apricotty aroma eminating from the copper colored beer with a small, white head. Aroma is deceptive, as the flavor is muddled malt, some fruitiness and a clean finish. Average mouthfeel.

It's surprisingly intense, with a fruity and zesty palate which finishes quickly leaving you wanting more. And yes, definately drink it in the special glass.
