Bottle from Tops @ Spar, Cape Town. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma full of unfermatable sugars, some caramel. Flavor is overly sweet, a bit alcoholic and one dimensional. More like a malt liquor, without any complexity.
Pours clear ruby colour with small head. Limited head retention. Malty aroma of caramel, treacle, sweet sugary notes. Also a bit of a resinous hop presence. Flavour is very sweet, with a gentle bitterness in support. Not much of an alcohol warmth. Medium-full bodied, average carbonation. Nice as a late-evening beer.

Bottle. Tries this in Franschoek SA. Not a bad little brew but nothing exceptionally special either. MSBrindbergs (665) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2015
Sista flaskan från fruns resa till Sydafrika.
Klar kopparfärgad med ett lågt skum.
Doftar mest maltsött.
Smakar Portello men med mindre socker och en tråkig beska.
Alkoholen slår inte igenom dock vilket förvånar.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 330ml Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy amber with thin off-white head. Marshmallow, honey and a slight sherry note to this beer. Big malty and belgian type flavours are pronounced. Beer is sweet and full bodied with low bitterness. Carbonation is on the low side. Overall a beer that reminds me of a dubbel.

Does not taste like an american strong ale but rather like a barley wine. Some notes of malt and apple. Decent, but not again. Weak aroma, small head. Yves (3169) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
