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.

KimJohansen (10435) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2010
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...

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2009
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.

madmitch76 (23328) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
22nd February 2008. Sweet aromatic malt with a sour note - much like the Gold - but this is more intense and with a subtle brandt note.

Skinnyviking (9139) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Clear golden body. Mild malty aroma with alcohol and grassy notes. Alcohol dominated barley malt flavor with peppery notes, low carbonation and a long dry and bitter aftertaste. Guess I got one of the good ones.

DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
I gotta say it looks pretty nice, with a huge fluffy head and dark yellow colour. Scent is not much though, just some grassiness and malts. The taste is some kind of cross between rubbing alcohol soaked in grass and caramel. Weird mouthfeel. Rather unappealing.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle: extremely sweet, some metal notes, strong alcohol flavor, plain horrible.

tomer (3255) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 8, 2009
0.33L bottle, almost no head whatsoever, dark gold colour, just a touch hazy. some candy and earthy yeasty aroma, some unpleasant sweetness a touch of bread and a strong coarse alcohol, the finish is bitter and alcoholic. certainly strong, but nothing belgian about it apart from the fact that it was made there. Feels much more like a malt liquor.
