COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

Sweet yeasty Belgian style amber ale. Just enough bitter to balance the boozy Belgian alcohol taste. Saved from a more negative note for me by being mildly complex, and curious enough to drink on...

Espuma beige que se va disipando, color dorado-ambar y opaco, aroma dulce en nariz, sabor potente por la alta graduacin pero que empieza con unos matices dulces y un final seco.

PlutonowyMan (560) - POLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Kolor ciemno bursztynowy, miedziany, intensywnie zamglony z mnstwem dro?d?owych drobinek. Piana w formie oko?o centymetrowej warstwy, ?rednio p?cherzykowa i niezbyt trwa?a. Przyzwoicie zdobi szk?o. Aromat karmelu i s?odkich owocw, od pomara?czy, poprzez s?odkie winogrona, na truskawkach ko?cz?c. Smak jest podobnie owocowy ale nie jest ju? s?odki. Akcenty zio?owo przyprawowe "podkr?caj?" Columbusa" dodaj?c mu pazura. Goryczka jest bardzo wyra?na, sucha zio?owa. Jest obecna od pocz?tku ?yka, trwa kiedy w ustach jest jeszcze piwo i d?ugo, d?ugo po po?kni?ciu.Wysycenie ?rednie, tutaj odpowiednie. Alkohol jest zdradziecki, idealnie ukryty.

wow. Virkelig en lkker l, men med lidt for hj alkohol procent. Flot smag, tilpas med humle og bitterhed.

Draft at the source. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is more malty than a traditional Belgian Strong Ale with hints of spice and yeast. Alcohol is noticeable.
