KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium golden orange with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that lasted only a short while, reducing to a light film with a large collar and having some good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a hay malt and a doughy yeast with notes of banana, apple, oak cask, white wine, apricot, agave nectar and a touch of alcohol. The taste was sweet and a bit acidic with a hint of fruity esters early on and then became rather yeasty and a bit sour with a mild sweet wine undertone and a slight oak alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lingered for a good long while with a nice fruity sour sweet alcohol warming sensation left behind. Mouthfeel was a little past light in body with a dry oily texture and a fizzy carbonation. Overall this was a fantastic Strong Ale that had a great fruity presence, which along with the Belgian yeast hid the high ABV very nicely...

Smakprov på Bishop Örebro, Ölets dag. Djup orange, klar med endast en liten försvinnande skumkrona. Maffig, fyllig doft full av kolaremmar, agavesirap, äppeljuice, mängder av torkad frukt, lönnsirap, ekfat, brunt socker och melass med stor sötma. Stor, maffig kropp som förväntat. Stor sötma med inslag av kolaremmar och mörkt socker som i doften, men kompletterat av en ganska rejäl alkoholvärme som drar iväg åt spritighet. Blir lite för vass och nästan lite bitter. Flaskan är åtminstone något år gammal. Kanske bättre av att ligga lite längre.

Coś się nie zapisało z panelu. Na pewno samo wyszło z butli. W aromacie i smaku sporo suszonych owoców, trochę beczkowych nut. Ogólnie całkiem fajne piwo.

Gushing as fuck. Wanilia dominuje. W zapachu jeszcze jablko. Smak delikatny, bardziej estrowy niz w zapachu.

Retronasal there’s soft fruit, berries, sourish, alcohol, bourbon, light wood, vanilla. Flavor is above moderate sweet with some fruity sourness. Strong alcohol feel. Almost full bodied. Long woody finish.
