3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful looking bomber into a Trappist glass. Clear golden amber color, very thin white head. Aroma of heavy malt, booze, fruits (apricot, pear, white grapes) and some yeasty spices. Taste adds caramel malt, candy-like sweetness, more alcohol, more spices, some hop bitterness and bready notes. Fully body, oily texture with a long finish. Some alcohol burn in the end. Balanced for sure, definitely a sipper.
Bottle at Tap-House Munich for my rating #7500. Dark amber to Brown, Low offwhite head. Honey, spice aroma. Fullbodied, some sugar notes, Belgian fruity yeast notes: fresh apple, fermenting tropical, light banana, sweet potatoe. Chewy, caramel grain, fitting hop backstop. Good Belgian notes, perhaps a bit too sugary, but quite drinkable nonetheless. SinH4 (4789) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2017
Bottle, shared for jonas’ 7500th rating. Hazy amber color with small white head. Aroma is fruit esters, caramel, raisins, musty. Taste is raisins, musty, toffee. Medium carbonation, warming finish. Well-made, but somehow these rather pale beers above 10% are not for me. NateH10s (72) - Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2017
1 day old growler in tulip glass,
A - copper orange relatively clear with litle white head

O - enjoyable interesting brew TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2017
A bad short light brown head. Very orange amber color. Big aroma from caramell. The caramell also is dominant in the taste with a big residual sweetness. Good body and hop balance. Alpha10 (755) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
2017/05/14 - Pours a hazy, deep orange honey colour with a soapy white head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, banana, bubblegum, toffee, honey, brown sugar, candied fruit (pears, orange, dark fruit) and sweet bread. Taste is more candied fruit, bready yeast notes, toffee, honey, medicinal notes and sweet alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to full and syrupy with smooth carbonation and a sweet, medicinal, warming finish. I found this to be almost too sweet, but overall rather enjoyable.

Amber pour, small head. Nose of thick, sweet honeyed malt, Belgian yeast, carnelized pears, other sticky dripping cooked fruits. Again sweet, honeyed, and caramelized fruits on the mouth. Nice yeast that keeps it grounded and not cloying. Some various grains shine through in the middle/finish. Impressive beer from Victory. Itzjerm (2866) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2016
