Bottle. Pours an auburny orange, lightly hale, with a yellowish-brown, stylish head. Aroma is Belgian fruitiness, apple, light marzipan, light caramel and resin. Taste is sweet with loads of caramel, some pine, light fruitiness and yeast in there as well. Light banana and marzipan in the beginning. A bit too sweet for me. Palate is full and somewhat carbonated. Too sweet for me, but at least the alcohol is well hidden. Plovmand (8613) - Grindsted, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle at home. Traded via Borresteijn. Cheers man! Pours bit hazy amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is lots of sweet malt, light yeast and spices and toasted malt. The flavour is very sweet and has a long sweet juicy prune like substanse. Notes of toasted malt, sweet caramel and ripe fruit. Seems more like a Belgian Strong ale than a barley wine.

Bottle, 11%. The first whiff of the aroma is of chocolate. Then there is a sweet and fruity note with a bit of sour rag. Cloudy red copper colour. Very big stable rocky off-white head. The flavour is very sweet and fruity with a little sourness. Syrupy mouthfeel, a bit too much. Peppery aftertaste, but does not taste 11%. Perhaps better after a few years in the cellar. ads135 (5000) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 9, 2011
A Quad. Pours Orangish brown with little head. Significant yeast remains at the bottom of the pour. Brown sugar sweetness with an alocoholic finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but leaves the drinker thirsty. PotjeBier (3731) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2011
