UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel and booze soaked raisins. Also some overripe red apples. Taste starts with caramel, butterscotch but not really sweet. The taste is balanced at first and gets quite bitter towards the finish. Body is very smooth with light carbonation. The label says "belgian barleywine" and indeed, it has some belgian yeast characteristics but also a lot of hop bitterness, like an american barleywine. Overall it’s a really interesting take on the style.

adasko (1820) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Awesome heavy, dense aroma with malty, winy, typical belgian quadrupel notes with tiny touch of alcohol. Almost clear, dark amber color beer, with tiny beige head to it. In taste I would say it’s a very much typical abbey belgian strong ale. Malty with this typical wooden, barrel notes and barely noticeable bitterness in the end. Alcohol is perfectly covered but it really warms you up from the inside. It’s a bit over carbonated, but has a great body. It’s so soft and silky. It really is a good beer.

Bottle. Pours in hazy dark amber body with low almost none white head. Aroma has high malty caramel sweetness. Light licorice. Pretty complex, well hidden alcohol. Taste has high sweetness upfront, really high, like sugary power rush, caramel, burned sugar. Body is heavy, full, medium carbonation.

Довольн& большая желтова& шапка - не нравитс& такой цвет. Чуть кислова& сладко-м чуть инжирны& аромат. Оччень сладкий вкус со средней карбони& тягучее, без горечи. Немного алкогол& сиропно& послевк& Было бы отлично, если бы не так сладко
