2.53/5  rDev -43.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

Presentation: 25.4 oz bottle, very nice label and cork.

Appearance: thick frothy tan head, cloudy brown amber color with alot of sediment particles lingering aroud. glass full of lace.

Smell: fruity malt sweetness.

Taste: the "bros say it the best" Clove is certain to be the first flavour you taste as it rides the wave of sweetness, big brown sugar flavour with some cake like malty qualities. Some buttery and phenolic flavours shoot to the palate in the middle to make it a bit juicy. Some earth and carob flavours in the mix. Alcohol is a little evident, it hiding under the sweetness right behind the fruity flavour that soon flare into esters and mild solvent flavours. Finishes sweet and warming.
(I say smokey orange peel sour yeasty alcohol flavor)

Mouthfeel: smooth slightly creamy good carbonation.

Drinkability: I could sip it all night but would probably throw up. the curiosity of the flavor leaves you wanting more, but the 10.5 % says hold up..think about what your doing hours from now.

Notes: I wouldnt recommend this to a belgian rookie. not really worth the price in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle
