Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a light amber with a generous white head. Bold though bright malt nose up front. Also hints of smoke and armpit. The flavor is fairly sweet with some bread notes to it. Pretty crisp. A good beer.

I think I expected more. It was good and all but it didnt have any kick what so ever.

Aromat: brzoskwinie, mid, karmel. Wygląd: barwa ciemno-miedziana, piana obfita, zdobi szkło. Smak: spora słodyczy, brzoskwinie i karmel, lekki alkohol. Tekstura: spora ciała, trochę zbyt niskie nasycenie. Oglne wrażenie: mocno słodowe i aromatyczne, dość pijalne, a przez to zabjcze, przydałoby się więcej nasycenie.

It had a silly sounding name; I was a dazed tourist in a French supermarket; I thought, "what the hell". Umm... Looks like a brown bitter. Smells of sickly malt loaf and liquidised puke. Tastes like varnish mixed with malty caramel. I assume the purpose of this drink is to get you drunk? I cant believe anyone would drink it for pleasure.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Degustação #1 18.mar.14 Cor âmbar com tons rubi e translúcida; espuma bege de alta formação e média persistência; bom lacing; Aroma de pão-doce e melaço; Sabor de início maltado bem doce que evolui para um final picante e pouco amargo; retrogosto também picante e que aquece um pouco a boca; corpo médio e carbonatação média. Degustação #2 16.abr.16 Cor âmbar com leve tonalidade rubi, um pouco turva com algum brilho; espuma marfim de alta formação e média persistente com lacing razoável. Aroma maltado de pão-doce, nozes e uva-passa. Sabor inicial de frutas escuras (ameixa e uva-passa) e nozes com picardia refrescante e um final seco, com álcool muito bem inserido e levemente amargo. Retrogosto maltado de frutas escuras muito agradável. Corpo médio e alta carbonatação. Alta drinkability. Obs: degustação no copo específico faz a diferença.

cokolwiek11 (370) - POLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Amber color clear beer, white small bubbles head (not too much and dont last too long, but Ive used trappist glass, pretty wide). Aroma: sweet belgian fruits esters (peach, banana), caramel, biscuit, slightly alcoholy. Taste: light to medium sweet, biscuity/caramely flavours and belgian esters again. Palate: medium body, dry, alcoholy (its nice, warming up alcohol, but strongly present). Low carbonation. Overall: good beer, too much alcohol on the finish. Without it, it would be extremely drinkable.

Bottle. Pours clear golden brown. Aroma of caramel, toffee, Belgian yeast. Sweet but complex taste with plenty of Belgian yeast in there. Good beer.
