4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske hjemme på julaften: champagnesmell og flott beige skum blir til gardin og film som varer helt til bunns. Høytidsstemning allerede i aromaen - kirsebær, vanilje, molasse, rosiner, svisker og fiken. Alt dette til tross er ikke smaken for søt, den er faktisk frisk og fristende. Alt for lett å helle innpå - her gjelder det å passe seg så jordrotasjonen ikke tar overhånd. Et ganglag for sjelen innkjøpt på Belgisk Bryg februar -14.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-23-2013 at RBWG Grand Tasting. Six liter bottle courtesy of thebeersommelier. This beer’s appearance is a medium sized beige head with a short retention, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is yeast, dark fruits, alcohol, malt, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a very good flavor to it. This beer is worth trying and definitely a beer I would drink again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 0.75 bottle. Very dark brown color and a large, beige head leaving some lacing. Sweet, pleasant aroma of vanilla, caramel, spices, bananas, and biscuits. Taste is also very sweet, biscuity and features lots, and I mean lots, of spices but also some unwanted alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is just as full of flavor, sweetness, and spices as the rest. Overall a great beet, it has my full recommendation despite the palatable alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma: floral, dark and light malts dominate. Taste: sweet, malty with some caramel. I must say when I had this beer three years ago I found it great (for Belgian standards). After experiences with craft beer in the US and Europe I find it ok.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Smells and tastes less like Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony than the last beer I tasted, but like these sons of Cleveland it creeps up on you: The high alcohol percentage is almost inperceptible behind all the many exciting nuances in the taste and smell. Contains soy, fish sauce, petrol, licorice and several different spices; but is most of all an intense and authoritarian expression which tells me exactly what it wants. Obviously, I too want it.
