Dark pour with hardly any head. Aroma and taste of sweet sugercane and many roasted spices. Bit too sweet to my liking but enjoyable.

Bottle as a gift. Many thanks! Hazy brown colour. Sweet caramel and malts, light spicy. Bit too sweet and one dimensional.

I was sent this beer by mistake by beernavigator.com, a Belgian outfit, I think. Annoying to get something you did not order when you paid for another product. This is all good. A typical strong Belgian ale, perhaps with a little too much of a Kräuter bitterness on the flavour and an appallingly poor presentation.

Donker bruin bier met beige schuim. Gebrande moutgeur en karamel. Zoete kandijsmaak met iets vineus en fruitig. Goeie carbonatie. Zoetige afdronk met een vineus zuurtje.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black, modest head. A: fruity, hairspray, dried apricot, hint of caramel, wine gums. Interesting. T: oily, distinct boozy hairspray taste, hint of cherry, candies. Deep boozy development, warming, but not too overwhelming. Aftertaste is a bit dry. Taste is robust and mature, just a bit too boozy.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Into a chalice at cellar temperature. Cola brown which shimmers in the lights. Head is a steady, creamy and dense off-white foam with oily legs on the meniscus. Nose is dominated by strange notes of Vegemite™ with even stranger hints of kecap manis, soy and Worcestershire sauce. Vinous, sherryish, nutty palate. Prunes and dates with an earthiness that dries it. Not big but weighty enough to b filling. Soft in carbonation and smooth in the finish. Lengthy, musty and earthy, wine-like finish. Light dusty cocoa and wood notes mid-palate with a little burnt, bitter stonefruit. Kind of falls flat a little. Alkaline and ash linger. Not bad, but not the best of Belgian Strong’s. The nose is definitely unique though!! (33cL, Int’l beer Shop, Leederville)

Belgian strong Ale with sugar, that’s the easy way to describe the beer. In fact it’s difficult to say more about it. Well, I can add the taste of alcohol.

Brownish colour with minimal head. Rather high carbonation. On the sweet end of the tongue. Candi sugar? Feels like a watered down version of rochefort.

Odeur de miel. Fort sucré. Le goût de sucre masque tout le reste. Alcool fort présent.
