750 ml corked bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Beautiful deep reddish brown hue topped with thin foam.
Aroma of freshly baked sweet fruity pastries, with raisin, orange, and apple.
A very complex and earthy, fruity flavor with huge sweetness. Sweet, intense, complex, and delicious. It is sweet and the hop level is low, but the earthiness really balances out the sweetness.
Carbonation is low to moderate and keeps the brew lively and light, a great sipper.
Among the best tasting substances to ever come from a bottle, a perfect quad.

Had 33CL bottle in Hua Hin Thailand and Mondo Vino. Of all the beer places I have scoured in Hua Hin, This one understands how to serve, pour, store beers.
Dark Brown with a dirty white head
Smell: Raisin sweetness with a slight bread like comes out, You know this 11% is going to be sweet from it's smell
Taste: Raisin, mollases fruity, the sweetness is pleasent and does not hit or offend like many beers with high alcohol percentages have. It is well balanced.
Mouthfeel: It sticks to your pallate and leaves a pleasent fruitcake like aftertaste.
Overall: Greatbigbeer! Strong and sweet, I would drink a few of the these over the colder months. As it sits it is quite pleasent in warm weather only as long as you dont excert yourself.

Very dark. There was a little foam, but it quickly went away
Dominated by dark, dried fruit.
A little fruity. It was sweeter than I expected, but incredible. There's a little coffee or red wine note as well
Smooth with very light carbonation
This is one of the best beers I've ever had. The one I had was part of a Belgian sampler and I went out the next day and bought a whole case.
