33 cL can. Pours clear and golden orange with a bubbly off-white head. Alcohol dense aroma with a mild malt spice note. Flavour is sweet caramel malty with full bodied mouthfeel. Warming alcohol finish with a smooth viscosity. Ungstrup (37294) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2005
A dark orange beer with a huge though collapsing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol as well as hints of caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol which gives it notes of metal. The alcohol runs warming over the tongue, but is too much for me. The flavor also contains notes of caramel. The finish is warm and quite dry - as if the alcohol suck the water out of the mouth. joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2015
Can at Borup.
Clear amber colored with a medium sized white head.
Sweet and malty aroma of caramel and alcohol with notes of alcohol.
Sweet and fruity flavor of alcohol and dried fruits.
Burning alcoholic finish. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Canned. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts as well as some spices. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts and some fruit. The fun thing is, if I wouldn’t know it’s a belgian strong ale, I would go for the fact it’s a very wellbalanced ESL or ML, I still think it’s a wellbalanced thing, even though I would wait for a bit more both aroma and flavourwise from a Belgian Strong Ale.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Label says brewed in Edinburgh for John Martin. Deep golden with an almost absent head. Sweet malts with a pronounced bitter finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. But still this is an extremely potent beer. Are we sure this is top-fermented? 150398

(Bottle 33 cl) Version called "Gordon Finest Gold Blond Merry Xmas" brewed by Scottish Courage in Edinburgh. 5/3/5/2/10=2,5 220302
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Fruity estery artificial raspberry aroma. Sweet and fruity, sweaty and unrefined. Finishes with some syrup and light grassy hops. Bold and clumsy. Not good. madmitch76 (24378) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
22nd February 2008. Sweet aromatic maltiness dominates. Slight sour malt finish that lingers well in to the aftertaste. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2008

We slammed through a few bottles of this in the hotel in Brussels during Paul’s pre-wedding boys weekend. This beer pours clear, yellow-gold with a medium, white foam head. Dusty grain and dough in the nose. Sweet cereal flavor with light grain, some straw, sugar and alcohol. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Warm finish with grainy sugar, mild straw bitters, dough and rubbing alcohol. Lasting grainy sugar and booze in the aftertaste. It’s a good ’get-drunk’ beer.
