2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is really nice and smells amazingly like white chocolate, a bit buttery, vanilla, cocoa, sugars. Pours a straw yellow with almost no head and no lacing. Taste is where things go really wrong. Tastes like white chocolate and serious booze. This combo is so cloying it’s almost impossbile to enjoy. Palate is thick and sticky which just makes the overpowering sweetness impossible to take. I wouldn’t drink this again for $5 a bottle. No balance and no subtlety at all.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Sampled from 0.75 l bottle at RBBSG 2016 in Evergem. Hazy, orangeish amber with a white head. Sweetish, sourish, malty aroma of lots of white chocolate, some coffee, vanilla and a touch of peach. Sweetish, malty, quite sour taste of lots of white chocolate, coffee, hazelnut and vanilla, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, quite sour finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent and rather astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!
