Theres plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. Its powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, its our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

Bricks (1105) - Delaware, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Ultra smooth, but tasted and smelled like a funky tangerine/orange beer. Not my cup of tea... or beer, in this case.

Gęste, wyklejające, słodkie. Czuć alkohol. Słodkie owoce. Wysycenie mogłoby być ciut niższe.

DonGregorio (314) - POLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle. Unclear dark amber colour, small tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, raisins, plums, dried fruits, light notes of almond. Taste is heavy- sweet and light to medium bitter, of raisins, dried fruits, plums, caramel, toffee, biscuits, some oranges - all flavours are fitting well and potent sweetness is nicely balanced by moderate bitterness. Full body, oily, thick texture, soft carbonation. Sweet, viscous, tasty, complex - classic example of the style.

De geur is fantastisch het ruikt zoet de caramel komt je al tegemoet voordat je een slok heb genomen. Het biertje zelf schuimt niet super weinig koolzuur. Maar een hele mooie diep rode kleur. Niet bitter en drinkt heel zacht ondanks dat het best een zwaar biertje is. Proeft zelfs verrassend fruitig in de nasmaak met daar doorheen gedrenkt de smaak van caramel en chocolade. Ook al staat het laatste niet op het etiket. Al met al Kapitein Haddock zal dit biertje zeker waarderen. Al is het alleen al omdat het als een bom inslaat.

Barwa miedziana, piana śladowa, niskie wysycenie. W aromacie głwnie suszone owoce, skrka chleba. Bardzo gęste oleiste. W smaku rwnież owoce, słodkie lekko skontrowane goryczką. Prawie niewyczuwalny alkohol. Świetne piwo!
