DwarfeD (3054) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Somewhat hazy amber brown with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Very sweet with some herbal bitterness. Caramel, malts, brown sugar, herbs and spices. Ok, but not too special.

Marduk (6770) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle. Murky brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Caramel, plastic, faint alcohol, sweet, dark fruits in aroma. Not much of aroma. Caramel, liquid butter, fat, woody, fruity, hops in taste. Very complex taste. Like little bit of everything and then again nothing. I like it. Medium bitterness. Feels thin and some might even say watery, but with character. 9.5%? You must be kidding. No sign of alcohol.

lello4ever (794) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Ottima belga con un colore rosso-marrone ambrato e una schiuma pannosa, ha un cuore dolce anche se ben equilibrato. Note di frutta e malto allolfatto. Nonostante sia essenzialmente dolce, con sapore di caramello e malto, non eccede e anzi si avverte un finale un pelo amaro. E alcolica ma ha un corpo moderato e una discreta carbonazione.

Cybion (150) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours dark reddish brown and cloudy as hell. Minimal off-white head. Aroma strongly reminiscent of caramel sponge pudding, with a lot of fruity notes (orange, apricot, grapefruit, lemon, later some darker stuff like blackcurrent and blueberry) going on as well. Very sweet though not unpleasantly so, with a fair bit of alcohol detectable too (though not unexpected giving the 9.5% ABV). As a big fan of caramel sponge pudding im exited! Taste is perhaps less overtly sweet with a malty bitterness hitting immediately, alongside hoppier notes of pineapple and citrus. Sweetness in the taste mostly takes the form of subdued honey and fruit, like the aforementioned pineapple as well as orange, and is never overpowering. Finish is long and bitter, of an unexpectedly hoppy variety. Was definitely expecting a maltier taste overall though this is by no means much of an issue. Palate and mouthfeel are decent with some carb and a generally smooth texture, though body could be a bit fuller. Surprisingly refreshing and easy drinking given the high ABV and rich, sweet aroma, while never showing much compromise in the taste department. Recommended to fans of both hearty belgians and refreshing fruity IPAs!

thirstyrabbit (1784) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Medium hazy copper body, medium head. Aroma has sourish caramel with some strawberries and amaretto. Also very light notes of toffee. Nice and unique. Caramelly taste with more light toffee, amaretto and berries. Sweetish finish but not too sweet - not as cloying as many other 9.5% beers. Pretty good ale, has a distinctive character.

MMR (703) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
I was rather surprised by the unique aromas of this beer. I would describe it as a combination between Tripel, Amber Ale and a bit of Kriek. Very unique very well crafted!
