3.85/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: A hazy copper color with a thick off-white head and webs of lacing down the glass.

S: A heavy dose of caramel malt and alcohol.

T: More of the same, a nice sweet caramel malt flavor that has a little bit of earthy peat/hop and a touch of fruity ester. The alcohol is prevalent throughout, however, the sweetness overpowers it and the burn is still there.

M: Medium-heavy body with good carbonation and a little burn.

O: Yeah, this is pretty good. The more it warms and the more you get acclimated to the alcohol, the beer gets a little bit better with each sip.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle to a Cigar City Snifter.

Color: A very murky brown brownish orange with a white head.

Smell: Malts, floral hops, bready, citrus.

Taste: Floral hops come through more in the taste. Then the breadiness and malts followed by a hint of citrus.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, dry on the palate and slightly coarse.

Overall: Full bodied just not too well balanced. A good brew just seemed a little off to me. Cheers.

2010 bomber poured into a duvel tulip

Appearance: 1 inch bubbly head with lacing that clings to the glass, hovering over the deep red/brown body of the beer

Smell: Caramel and green apples come through first, tart and sweet. There are hints of sweet cherry undertones and bitter hop flavors

Taste: Apples, bitter citrus fruits, the cherries come through though they're hidden by a bit of tart flavor, caramel/malt flavors come through just before the finish, which is surprisingly hoppy after 2 years in the bottle.

Mouthfeel: Lightly bubbly on the tongue that flows on the palate, the hops carefully interjecting their bittering notes.

Overall: This is a great strong ale, it aged well, I'm glad to have opened it at this point but I'm curious what another 6 months would do to the hop character

The beer is hazy orange, has an off-white head that leaves little lacing but good curtains.

Smelling of sweet vanilla with grape-fruit and yellow (dried) peas.

Starting with sweet vanilla toffee, a citric taste and grape-fruit peel finish.

Medium carbonation, slightly fizzy, a soft texture, good body and dry finish.

Vintage 2009, a little unbalanced. And rather tacky bottle.

3.03/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Vintage 2009.

The colour is red-brown, the liquid is clear. The warm white head is low. Fine lacing.

The smell got notes of honey, sweet malt and some clean bitterness.

Honey is also present in the taste. Bitter, somewhat sharp notes. Dense sweetness. The body is thin. Aged notes of raisins, alcohol and frowsy hops.

Light sharp carbonation. Light liquid.

Too old. Boring.
