330 ml. bottle sampled @ LIBF 2017. Thank you for sharing RB-InBev Belgian crew! Black with no head. Nose is massively thick, sweet & cloying, molasses, syrup de Liège, dates, bourbon syrup. Crazily thick, boozy, extremely sweet & cloying, really heavily so with dates, figs, massive molasses, molasses bourbon syrup, pure goop, ridiculously thick & cloying, syrup the Liège, so thick,... Pure overkill, so thick & cloying. I like it but its challenging. Apparently it was also sold as the festival for 15 - 20 euro which is more than a little bit ridiculous.
