3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly clear amber orange color. Minimal ring of off-white head. Good belgian yeast character, nice light toasty malt, more caramel malt. Good light amount of belgian candy sugar, some toffee. Nice longer aftertaste, hints of banana, light belgian yeast character in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Hides the alcohol astonishingly well, what’s up with that? This is really 12%? The only thing hinting at that is the bigger, slightly slick body. The minimalist of bites in the finish. Besides the bigger body, this drinks like 9%. I better put this taster away or I’m going to get buzzed quick.. Not the most interesting or complex double I’ve ever had, but it definitely gets points. It’s no Rochefort 10 in terms of complexity and aroma, but this does a killer job at masking the alcohol.

Tap sample. Poured a clear copper orange color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart balanced and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation and small particles. Medium to heavy fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Color caramelo tupido con espuma coló crema escasa. Aromas de fritas confitadas melocotón y miel. En boca es densa y muy dulce con los mismos matices afrutados qie daba en el olfato. Muy rica.
