3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, peaches, and oil. The flavor is sweet spicy and with loads of hops as well as alcohol to give it a nice body. A nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy chestnut colour with a tiny off-white head. Vinous port-like nose with lots of alcohol. Notes of dates and overripe fruit, but in general it’s not an overly complex beer. 011005

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th May 2008. Smooth and very sweet ale with that Belgian bubblegumness that is really something else not bubblegum. Offset by an underlying bitterness. Very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance was bright neon orange, a bit hazy, with a tiny-bubble head and almost no lacing.
Smell was apricots and caramel.
Taste was malt, with strong alcohol showing through. Hints of orange peel.
Mouthfeel was fair, not as full as the strength would predict.
Overall, not bad, but there are too many better examples of this style to spend too much time with this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful amber color; very thin head. The aroma is malty, not too strong; a bit alcoholic too, maybe there is even a trace of phenol; and, as it happens sometimes in strong beers, they can show a vegetables aroma. Full mouthfeel, well balanced, as there is still some sweetness and the necessary bitterness; maybe the alcohol is too much; some malt flavor and traces of caramel; beware: wait some time and your patience will be rewarded with some better malt flavor, even with sweet hazelnuts coming from the residual yeast (this one being particularly interesting). The final (you may suspect it, some malt and nutty bitterness) is long. They have good hops that can work well with the high amount of sugars, and it has been brewed with usual skills; but this beer is lacking a bit in complexity. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was an enormous, potent beer. Got a bottle at New Beer Distributors in NYC. Poured a hazy, bright honey-amber with a fluffly, lingering head. Nose of honey, brown sugar, and dark fruits such as cherries, figs, and raisins. Flavor is at first quite sweet but then gives way to the alcohol, which warms the palette is a nice way. Notes of cane sugar and raisin abound in this beer. Pretty smooth and has a nice body. I don’t think I could drink two of these back-to-back. This is powerful stuff.
