3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark amber body, medium head. Aroma has sugary dried fruits, fruity esters, toffee and even some blackcurrants. Sugary taste with dark dried fruits and hints of blackcurrant. Above average sweetness but the alcohol is well covered too. A complex dessert beer, not made for quaffing. Has a nice and memorable character.

Semi-clear orange, off-white head. Nose is sugary, nutty, caramel, bread. Flavor is lots of malt and caramel, metallic notes, tons of sweetness. Finishes with boozy bitterness, lingering caramel and malt. Wow that’s a lot of sugar in this.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 2016. Pours dark amber with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, vinous, fruits, caramel, some alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter, caramel, a lots of alcohol. Finish is toffee bitter. Overall: I’m not a fan of very sweet, very bitter and very boozy brews. As it warms up, I like it less and less...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Le Trappiste, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear, sweet aroma of caramel malt, yeast and fruit, with subtle hoppy touches. Sweet flavour of caramel malt with fruity notes and estery touches. Hints of hops and citrus but just that. Rough and estery finish. Well, I am definitely not a fan of Silly beers, but this one is actually okay; perhaps too sweet, though.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic Belgian-style barley wine since 1989. A peach blonde ale with off-white, not very stable head and caramelly malty character adorned with orange peel, almond, figues, cognac, herbal hops, warming alcohol in the finish. Overall a bit too sweet, even a bit cloying, but still a very tasty beer.
