3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16/IX/2012 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 6/XII/13 (2012-1045) Thanks to Manon and erik for the bottle!
Cloudy dark muddy brown beer, creamy beige head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, strawberries, forest fruits, citrus, some exotic fruits, lychee, caramel, alcohol, some dried fruits, hint of chocolate and mocha. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: caramel, some chocolate, lots of alcohol noticeable. Also overripe to rotten fruits, bitter hops, some sour berries, bit earthy, caramel, sweet alcohol. On warming up, more exotic fruity flavours are coming out, pineapple, passion fruit, etc. Aftertaste: pretty bitter hops, bit of citrus, grassy, mocha, coffee, some caramel, sweet malts, dry hoppy ending. It’s like a blend between a (bad) Belgian double and an IPA. Don’t drink cold!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at T’Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 03.03.12 Hazy muddy dark brown in colour with a light beige head. I was surprised by the style because I found this to be reasonably hoppy and quite bitter for a Belgian Strong Ale. It was a little rough around the edges with a smattering of spices, but I quite liked this. The version that I had was 8%. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
