4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well here it is, after almost 4 years of aging I finally get to enjoy.
Pours a merky brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very complex. I notice a lot of variaties of scents, how about dark fruit, caramel. vanilla, plum, yeast, and raisin to name a few.
I thought the aroma was complex, heh, the flavor takes on a whole new definition to the word. With notes of toffee, malts, yeast, caramel, figs, dark fruit, nut and wine. Extremely smooth and drinkable for 10.5%. Well worth the wait.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coloração marrom escura. Creme belga bege, fino porém muito persistente. Aroma de maltes torrados e caramelo, com frutas maduras ao final da taça. Sabor delicioso do álcool bem inserido (apesar dos 10%), com boa carbonatação e predomínio de maltes torrados, frutas escuras (principalmente ameixa) e chocolate amargo ao final. Retrogosto equilibrado, percebendo-se levemente o lúpulo. Excelente breja.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330cc bottle poured (gushing) into glass. Color is dark brown with a lot of sediment. The off white head is initially large but doesn’t stay for long. Full body, medium-high carbonation. Sweet malty taste with caramel and ripe fruit aroma. Low bitterness. High ABV is very obvious. Excellent beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark amber, hints of purple, golden-brown and a nice 2 finger, off-white head. Some sediment in the glass, but typical of the style. Aromas are initially sweet with caramel, toffee, banana and dark fruit coupled with some clove, allspice and lingering alcohol. Taste is very rich and balanced. Much like the nose. No surprises here, just a great balance. Maybe some hints of tobacco and leather along with the well-hidden alcohol. Finishes with a moderate bitterness and nice interplay of the malt/yeast.

Bottle at home. 2 years old. Has a deep, nut brown colour with a big, light brown head. Nice aroma of dried fruit, chocolate, leather, cured meat, alcohol and beech. Has a malty and rich flavour with more chocolate, rye bread, sweet malt and some leather. The mouth feel is rich and soft, and has a light bitterness. A rich, sweet and wonderful quad.

This is something else, one of my favourites.
Rich and soft taste, slightly sweet and floral. Mixes of many spices. You feel the alcohol in the end in a wonderful away. A truly great beer.

After drinking more of them, I really have to change my opnion of it. It’s not the same as the westvleteren XII, but beers like these make drinking beer funny.

Bottle. Dark brown, foggy with a big frothy light brown head. Aroma has yeast, ripe fruit, raisin and wood.
Taste has nut, orange, wood and malt. Surprisingly strong carbonation. Well-rounded light aftertaste. Very easy going dispite the high alcohol content. Characteristic.

33cl bottle in a st. Bernardus glass. I really enjoy this beer. It has a touch of champagne and alcohol and the yeast is great.
