Bottle, 75cl corked, at Plan B. Theres some micro sized floaties in the else clear pour. Golden in color, and topped by a decent off-white head. Theres canned tropical fruits on the nose, with white sugar and lots of alcohol. The flavor is syrupy with tropical fruits and alcohol, full-bodied and warming. Lasting vinous finish. Vinous and unbalanced, a beer with too much alcohol, almost like a super strong french supermarket beer, except this one was much more expensive, and also the packaging looked much better. Been there done that. 100508

750ml bottle @ Plan B. Clear golden body with a diminishing white head. Aroma feels sweet and sticky from malt, sugar and alcohol with a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet, way to sweet, candy sugar, some caramel, spicy and to much alcohol. A bit thin, but also sticky sweet body with alcohol in the finish. Not really bad, but some lack of balance and too sweet with to much alcohol flavor.

Thanks to Beer2000 for a sample of this one. Small white head over a golden body. Sweet aroma with rather bland fruits and alcohol. Tart and sweet fruits in flavour with a touch of caramel malts. A bit distracting alcohol vapour. Sticky sweetness (CBF, 08.05.2010).

Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a nice Medium golden yellow color. Minimal fizzy white head, lasted maybe a minute or two. Aromas of light spices, a touch of brown sugar, and something vegetal. Flavor is lightly sweet and hints of spiciness. Touch of citrus. Not to bad, just not something Id like more than a glass of.

Clear amber with a tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma with fruity and yeasty notes. Flavour was sweet with malty, fruity and yeasty notes. Finished dry from the hops. Had some warming alcohol Id say.

A very strong beer, but it lacks some strong taste. Even the aroma and appearance arent good. Not to bad to drink after all...

Can, 50 cl, alone. Dark golden beer, only a little bubbles, medium white unlacing head disappearing fast to a little white head. Smell is the one of sugar, malt and alcohol. The taste is alcohol, with sugar and some malts on the background and finishing with alcohol. After a while alcohol is the onyl thing I still taste in this beer. Maybe it would have been a better choice to make a good beer with more pallet and a less alcohol taste than to make just a very strong beer which I have to throw away because of the overwhelming alcohol taste.
