kevinsenn (2245) - Waterloo, Ontario, - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle from LCBO singles basket. Pours slightly hazy golden with a huge head. Spicy aroma with honey and plenty of alcohol. Taste is sweet, slightly spicy, quite alcoholic, with a little vanilla. High carbonation.

33 cl bottle // Age unknown Alcoholic sweet, caramelly, kane sugar, with hints of Brown rum. Marvellous

Rather ridiculous label, but surprisingly well-crafted, complex and strong Ale very much to my liking.

Krásná zlatavá barva, chuť nasládlá, vůně lehce alkoholová, ovšem u tohoto piva to snad ani nevadilo. Alkohol zde příjemně hřeje a společně s vyladěnou chutí se snoubí v poměrně dobře pitelné pivo. Ale jedna třetinková láhev stačila až až (zvláště když jsem společně testoval tři takto silné piva najednou,... :D)

Birra dal colore quasi ambrato. Schiuma fine e persistente. All’olfatto sentori fruttati di agrumi e frutta a pasta bianca, come pera e pesca bianca. Al palato corpo medio con note di miele e pesca bianca. Molto alcolica ma la sua alcolicità è ben camuffata. Una discreta birra, nonostante l’alcol si lascia bere, pericolosamente, con facilità.

herrklemann (384) - Graz, AUSTRIA - FEB 9, 2017
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma dominated by yeast, hints of fruit (banana, citrus, some berries, some wine even), something like gin botanicals, leather, cardboard, tobacco, booze. Taste is dominantly dry, with pearly sourness. Medium body, a bit syrupy, pearly carbonation. Dry, slightly sour finish with hints of tobacco.
While this is kind of overwhelming, nothing really stands out. It’s interesting, flashy even, but I won’t have another in a while.

sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - JAN 5, 2017
Colore dorato carico, schiuma scarso. Odore caramello, poco speziato, cereali, fruttato, erba, alcool. Corposa, liquorosa, dolce, poco frizzante. Non molto equilibrata, l’alcool è troppo presente.

Clear golden colour with lasting head. Aroma and flavour are not particularly intense but certainly warming from the alcohol. Certainly sweet but still fairly drinkable.

Pours dark gold with a very nice white, compact head. But is it real gold what’s below? Unfortunatly no. I can’t find anything particular in the aroma, just a very little hint of citrus and some yeasts. Taste is better, but just because I love this kind of sweet beer. Sure not the best example of belgian strong ale, but enjoyable.

Aspecto: De color dorado más bien pálido, turbia y un poco apagada. Con burbuja muy fina pero abundante, la corona de espuma formada en copa es generosa y esponjosa, de color blanco y bastante duradera. Aroma: Rica en aromas, afrutada (frutos cítricos y tropicales), destaca en ella la presencia de la malta, y especialmente la levadura y el alcohol, haciéndose muy penetrantes ya que se trata de una cerveza que contiene restos de levadura para la segunda fermentación y presenta una graduación elevada. También se aprecia un ligero toque dulzón como a caramelo. Sabor: De sabor amplio, penetrante, se nota claramente al comienzo el alcohol, lo que junto con la acción de la carbonatación, provoca una sensación astringente en boca. De cuerpo medio y bien balanceada, el gusto evoluciona hacia un amargor seco en el retrogusto de corto final.

Yeast, herbs, light fruity notes, golden with a huge white head quite persistant, light/medium body, medium carbonation, spices, notes of honey, light sweetness with a bitter hoppy finish, alcohol is well hidden but present in the aftertaste...good work pirate.
