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.

Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.
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.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Big thanks to Harrisoni for sharing this rare beer. Cheers Ian! Hazy amber beer. Short lived pale tan head. Smooth silky palate. Sweet malts, caramel (naturally!). Lots of sweet esters, banana in particular. Alcohol aniseed spice towards the finish. Smooth delivery as always from Struise with the super high abv beers.

Thanks to Ian for sharing this! Pours a honey gold to brown colour with a huge upfront alcohol aroma. Aroma and flavours of raisins, caramel, alcohol and oak also with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. A long alcohol hum and quite bitter. Nicely done : )

Bottle at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012, thanks to harrisoni. It pours hazy deep red-amber, with a quickly dissipating off-white head. The nose is spice, honey, golden syrup, sweet tinned fruit (pear, melon etc) and brown sugar. The taste is varnish, wood, very fruity - raisin, currant, prune, date, melon and pear, as well as hot cross buns, toffee, golden syrup and lots of alcohol warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Pretty damn sweet and hot, but quite an experience to drink!
