Quarter pint at The Black Dog Pub in Bayfield, ON. Yellow gold in colour with a thin ring of bubbly white head and dots of lacing on the tulip. Smell and taste are sweet bubble gum, baking dough, yeast esters, ethanol, melon fruit, clove, orange peel, pie crust, Fuzzy Peaches, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick, peppery, strong spiciness, somewhat sour, boozy astringency to finish. A pleasant, drinkable strong ale, but not the most layered or rewarding example of the style. Still, it's worth a go if you can find it on tap.
Serving type: on-tap

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%

Light amber. Darker than Duvel and similar in colour to a Czech pils. Haziness made carbonation difficult to see
Smell is of onions, pear drops and candy. To me this, smells very similar to Duvel.
Taste is of malt, sugar, pear, apple with a touch of booze and a warm finish. It is a bit like an "imperial pilsner" beer as it has the same refreshing drinkability of a lager but with more alcohol warmth and more flavours going on. Bit of booze on the finish.
Mouthfeel is fizzy and palate cleanisng.
Overall I found this to be similar to a Duvel with perhaps a touch more caramel sweetness. A very good BSPA.
My mark out of one hundred would be 93.
