tanel025 (16) - ESTONIA - JAN 14, 2017
Lacks of aroma. Taste: rich, sweet, caramel, malt. Foeam taste is good. Liquid taste has also some bitterness, but hidden by the sweetness. Alcohol excellently hidden. Palate: first smooth, but later on, theres some spice I was waiting for! Would like to get more spice and sharpness at aftertaste. Overall very drinkable strong ale but slightly lacks of character and aroma.

Echon (426) - rhus, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2017
Dark red. Candy sugar, phenols, fruity notes and spice on top of a full and sweet taste, that finishes with a powerful bitterness and light hop flavour. Full body, and high carbonation. Overall, a very good, if unusual, strong ale. The heightened bitterness works well within the framework of a traditional belgian strong ale. Very drinkable.

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 08/07/17 Deep gold body, big white foam. Aroma not overly strong - caramelly malt, fragrant spicy sort of hops, fair whack of booze & stonefruit esters. Syrupy body, carbonation subdued for style leaving things a bit flabby. Rich caramel malt body, toast, spicy, overly ripe fruits, touch of oxidation, restrained bitterness, warming booze. Doesnt fill the brief all too well.

SilkTork (5602) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
330ml stubby dark bottle, unfiltered, part of a mixed box of six Belgians for 10.49 from Lidl. Drunk side by side with Piraat, this is a slightly more interesting beer thanks to the hop levels. Regular Piraat hops are muddy and bitter, but the hops here at least smell and taste like hops. They do fight with the strong pale malt, but cut through in places to add an interest. But the aroma at times smelts like some kind of joke shop or chemical barnyard, and the tastes is a tight chemical plastic with washing up liquid. Better than regular Piraat, yes, but a great tasting beer Id want again? No.

promontor (127) - HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2016
0.33l bottle from Lidl. Colour is orange or a bit darker. Also hazy. Nice head, fairly persistent for a strong beer like this one. Aroma is moderate, fruity chewing gum, raisins. Foam tastes like tutti frutti chewing gum, raisins. Alcohol is strong already in foam. It is also strong in the beer itself. The second strong component is tutti frutti chewing gum like sweetness, which is somewhat compensated by some dry bitterness, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is OK, moderate carbonation. Taste is less complex than what you would expect from a strong Belgian ale, but nevertheless it can be a nice companion to some sweets.
