Demens (160) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 20, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 On tap and 0,33l bottle. Amber brown colour and beutiful strong creamy tan head. Aroma: Sweet malts, caramel, fruits, raisin very, very rich. Taste: Oh my God...sweet but complex, the good ol’ belgian yeast is everywhere. Medium/heavy body, soft carbonation. Light sweet/bitter finish. For me this is by far the best beer and it’s perfectly balanced.

lokis333 (331) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - DEC 18, 2015
Clear caramel redish color with strong off whit foam. Aromas of grains and malt, sugar, oranges and caramel. Palate, full body, meadium sticky/ caramely texture that covers whole mouth and leaves sugary sweet finish. Taste is very sweet and sugary/caramel-y. has this subtile alcohol hints at the back of the mouth but in general sweet malty beer. Overall, this tasting experience is way more fun from their wacky glasses that makes it more interesting (for me). As a beer bit on the stronger side I would say but sweeter than I thought. nice colors and aromas along with taste, pretty good I would say and would recomend!

Typical strong belgian brew, you can taste the alcohol but it’s not unpleasant.
