3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle and served in my lil Tripel Karmeliet glass: Pours a beautiful deep coppery amber with a fading head. The aroma has notes of rich over-ripened apple, prune, raisin and pear, bubblegum, caramel, pils malt, a touch of iodine/peat oak and plenty of yeast esters. The taste is sweet but not overbearing, fruity and yeasty with a heavy dose of alcohol to cleanse the palate. The mouth feel is sticky and lush with aggressive booze. I like this but missing the darker malts normally found within the genre. This bottle is already two years old but could stand a few more years of aging.
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours amber with very limited white foam. Aroma is very liquor-like, alcoholic, and apple. Body is dense and with some astringency. Taste is wonderful, with fruity sweetness, like plums, little cherries, apple liquor. Finish is long and very pleasant. tsd08460 (1237) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2017

Murky orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some spices, caramel, alcohol, and raisins. The flavor is rather boozy with some toffee, citrus, caramel, apricots, and spices. Quite yeasty. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Overall this beer reminds you it is over 12% but it is not overpowering. Good stuff. Pinky77 (256) - - NOV 2, 2016
Bevuta alla spina, colore oro marrone con schiuma beige compatta e persistente. Al naso ha profumi di frutta scura e pane tostato. Al palato uva passa, miele con un tocco di pane tostato. Molto piacevole la dolcezza dell’ uvetta passita, sentori anche di prugne secche e albicocche disidradate. Piacevole il calore dell’alcol nella gola, birra corposa, non smetterei mai di berla......buonissima melush (4718) - SPAIN - OCT 17, 2016

Ámbar limpio y espuma marfil. Aromas de frutas confitadas. Candy. Cuerpo medio y sabor como en aroma, final seco que no compensa el dulzor.
