Keg at Brewdog CJ. Caramel sweet aroma. A ruby brown. A few mm of off-white head. Medium sweet. Some light bitterness creeps in to a boozy finish. Mediim bodied. Sticky slick A prickle of carbonation. Relatively anrupt finish. Lovely. Feel like it should be Christmas. Cunningham (8177) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2017
Nice amber color with a fine off white head. Good lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Full body and a fine carbonation level. Pleasant to drink. Balanced sweetness. Fruity, yeast, toffee and some spices in the flavor. Nice tasty evening sipper. Good complexity.beerplace (1805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2017

Taster at Rogues Convention Center during the Alesmith Canadian Sales start event with Slack guys. Pours a clear amber with a weak tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet, with caramel notes. Same taste, very close to the original Belgian beers. Good work, Alesmith! Ferris (16106) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2017
Draft - Caramel, golden raisin and sweet honey notes. Clear copper with a small head. Sweet caramel and nice apple malts. Lots sweet caramel green apple and golden raisin. jjsint (3336) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Keg tap at BrewDog Leicester. Light brown. Hazy with a small off-white head. Candy sugar, yeasty aroma with light raspberry and cinnamon. Sweet, sugary and slightly fruity taste. There’s some dogged hop bitterness in the finish. Some caramel biscuit and stone fruit notes in the aftertaste. Well carbonated and oh so boozy. An incredible experience.

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is Creme Brulee, Bananas Foster, fruity caramel, Belgian Quad vibes, some wood. Taste is creamy, Quad-like, raisins, boozy fruitcake, oak. Incredible aroma, loads of Belgian vibes...not as complex as I was hoping for but still very drinkable with depth. PhillyCraft (7597) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Backlog Bottle, pours an amber brown color with medium 2 finger head. Notes of raisin, wood, fig, anise, chocolate, and banana. lots of sweet dark fruit as it warms up. Medium to fuller body with a lingering finish. Heidbummer (735) - SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Flight, Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours headless ruby/brown. Huge raisin, port, pineau de charentes aroma. Big boozy hit on the taste, armagnac like warmth, loads of dark fruits. Very good, but the balance isn’t quite right for me for it to be a 4 plus. Bill Becker (1105) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 1, 2017
No date on the 750ml bottle.
It pours a clear reddish brown with an impressive head of foam. Slow to shrink and a good lacing brew.
Smells of caramel malt, Belgian yeast and spices, dark fruits, bit of butterscotch. Light presence of booze.
Belgian flavours all the way. Yeasty, bananas, raisins, dark pitted fruit that add a wee bit of tart twang. Caramel malt is there but only as a supporting player. A bit of booze in the taste. Sipper? You betcha. I can dig that.
Close to, if not, full bodied.
Serve it to me at a blind tasting and I’d swear that it was Belgian.
