3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pours hazy dark golden with a small creamy goldenish white head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and fruity with sweet bread, caramel, plums, grapes, yeasty esters, overripe mango, overripe pineapple, silage, marzipan and dried apricots. Taste is very sweet with sweetened bread, caramel, pale honey, golden syrup, alcohol, toffee, marzipan, candi sugar, apricots, hay, apples, pears and hints of wood and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is intense, sticky sweet, boozy and full bodied. Finish is sweet and fruity with apricots, grapes, orange peal, apples, pears and almond milk. Too intensely sweet and boozy for me.

Draught @ CBC ’12. Rated on 11.05.2012
Aroma is perfume-like with toffee and berries – feels like an aged tripel. Flavour is oversweet with shitloads of sugar and caramel. Some very stinging alcohol on some sips. Feels like a liquor, hard to rate as a beer.

Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of strong Belgian toffee, hay and candisugar. Very sweet flavour of Belgian toffee and shitloads of candisugar. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and an aggressive sugary finish. Reminds me of Root Beer. Way too sweet anyway.
