3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Bottle. Pours brown hazy with stable white head. Aroma of red fruits and malt. Very dense, malty sweet, incredible rich with bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Despite the beer complexity, I find this beer hard to drink due to its sticky sweet side which to me does not play right with bitterness. But it could also be not my fav beer style that influences my feelings. It resembles a bit of Barley Wine but it?s very Belgian-like at the same time. It is a very good drink with high ABV perfectly hidden. Despite it, its density decreases drinkability. Lacks an ass-kicking factor.

Zapach to głównie suszone owoce - morele, słodki, słodowy. Piwo jest potężne, bardzo gęste i słodkie, zaklejające usta. Mimo to nie odpycha. Końcówka wyraźnie alkoholowa, lekko gryząca w gardło i rozgrzewająca. Tak smakuje słodowy likier! Genialny trunek.
