3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle was leaking in the suitcase; I’m surprised to see how lively it is still; it pours a hazy deep blond color with a huge and persistent head, too much carbonation. Aroma of old hop, paper, dusty, sewage. Good body strength, strong bitter toffee flavor; the toffee, as it happens sometimes, turns into some light sweet liquorice in the end. Warming alcohol. A Belgian Strong Ale more bitter than usual. Not bad.
