Bready/yeasty, sweet and a rich malt in the aroma. Characteristic belgian yeast. A nice looking beer, mahogany color with long lasting white head. Caramel, malt, belgian yeast and a mild hoppiness, with abrupt alcohol aftertaste. Pretty clean tasting. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.

Ippopodio (113) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2016
Colore dorato carico con riflessi arancione. La schiuma è abbondante, ma grossolana ed evanescente. Al naso caramello, nocciola, banana e qualche estere da lievito. In bocca è dolce e fortemente alcolica.

Maersk (17) - MOLDOVA - FEB 12, 2016
Thick creamy head, very nice bronze reddish color. Intense carb. Smells wine, fruit (slightly rotten) and burberry. Lots of candy in the taste. Aftertaste has alcohol and sour finish which slightly spoils the impression.

One of the best! Specially in the original chemistry-glass is a beer to enjoy. Full taste, caramel and nuts, perfect amber orange brown color with long finish. Maybe my favorite.

I’ve had this twice during 2 separate visits to Cafe Hollander in ’Tosa. Both times I thought it was awful. Weird aroma of medicine, banana, toffee, and capsicum. Horrible medicinal flavor. This is terrible and they didn’t do it any favors by serving it in an odd fucked up test tube like glass that looked very much like that "Drinking Bird" everyone had in the 1970’s.. On top of that, the glass came in a strange wooden holder that made getting to the glass difficult. Perhaps they were trying to prevent you from drinking this glop? This beer is really, really bad. Tap.
