4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of caramel, bread and coffee. It appears dark brown with a short lasting white head. The taste is only medium sweet with hints of caramel and fruits. The finish is long and bitter with a remarkable bready aftertaste. A full, nice mouthfeel, but the carbonation was a bit too lively to keep in your mouth for too long. An excellent beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- murky, dark brown, half a finger beige head which persists throughout. Aroma- sugary fruits, molasses, raisin and banana, dark malts, hint of chocolate, sweet bread. Smells great. Taste- sweet and sugary, lots of fruit- raisin and banana mostly, with cherry, prune and sultana, and a bit of grape juice. A definite maltiness, with hints of cocoa and milk chocolate. The alcohol is barely detectable. Pretty full mouthfeel, and the flavours linger at the end- it finishes with some port and vinous notes. Really good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Pours medium/large quite frothy head which dissolves to a 1 cm layer, the colour it’s a beautiful opaque dark leathery brown. Aroma it’s something very complex: cake, sweet, huge malts toffee, dark fruits, butterscotch, caramel and a bit of alcohol... You can pretty much smell anything in there, spice and chocolate included. And if you think about cognac, it just smells almost that way, barriqued: incredibly complex. In the mouth it’s pretty much on that way: tastes caramel, honey, cake, toffee, pure belgian ale malt falvours. Then starting from the sweet it finishes with an incredible sour/bitter full rounded but very delicate palate, very long lasting. It just tastes and smells awesome ,in an elegant and royal way. Dark, sweet, strong, full body, creamy, but in the end very well balanced. Very satisfying, awesome beer

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a two finger off-white head. Crazy as it sounds, the opening notes on the nose really make me think Campari meets red licorice, and I mean that as a compliment. There are also some light dark bread aromas, mineral notes, and light molasses. Smells great, and really, unlike any other beer I’ve tried. The taste has light maple syrup. light brown sugar, raisin, again a little red licorice, and definite booze that leads into nuttiness, dried fruit, bready notes, with caramel, cocoa, and light molasses candy notes in the finish. Very enjoyable stuff.

Molt bona cervesa, al nivell de la 10, perň més del dia a dia.

Spicebread nose, a bit vineous, touch heavy on alcohol. Flavor follows, kinda in between a dubbel and a quad, fruity and spicy and a bit nutty, very good beer for being something I’m not a huge fan of.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours much lighter than 10 and with much more foam that needs no agitation to form... reddish clear tan with creamy head that holds well - familiar vinous notes on the nose; creamy and effervescent on the tongue with a carbonated almost tasteless upfront finish that hits the familiar vinous notes that 10 hits at the end.

No, itt is elég közel járunk a tökéletességhez. Már megjelenése és illata is tiszteletet parancsoló. Karamellásan aszalt gyümölcsös, mely az ízében, folyamatosan levegőztetve bomlik ki igazán. Gondolhatunk fügére, datolyára, naspolyárása, dióra, szilvára, erdei gyümülcsökre közben, csak arra nem, hogy ez egy jellegtelen gyenge sör lenne. Valami fenségesen pompás ! Nem lehet betelni vele !
