Very nice take on a Belgian! 12%abv doesn't taste like 12%abv which is nice. Could get you in trouble if you aren't careful! The aroma sets up heavy but the taste is smooth and the feel is nice upon the tongue. Victory is a very good brewery that continues to send quality beers. This is one of their best.

This is a fantastic quad. I'd rate it higher but it is a bit hoppier than I'd expect from the style. I'd rate it lower except the hops really compliment the flavor. This is a phenomenal take on the style. It has a great caramel earthiness up front, a slight hop twang on the finish, and just enough alcohol warmth going down to remind you to be careful. And just enough awesomeness to make you want to throw caution to the wind. Which advice will win out? Only the rest of the evening will tell.

Bottled 03 Jul 14 at40 degrees into snifter
Nose – can’t smell anything good or bad
Head small (<1 cm), off white, fizzy, virtually instantly diminishing to 1 mm partial ring
Lacing none
Body golden amber, clear – just beautiful!
Flavor begins sweet like candi sugar, no distinct flavors appear, ends sweet; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy to syrupy, lively carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 2, Flavor 2.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 2.875. Final weighted score: 2.625.
In terms of appearance, this beer lacks any head that lasts longer than 30 seconds and produces absolutely no lacing. The golden amber color, however, is simply beautiful. I cannot detect any aroma whatsoever, but at least it doesn’t smell bad. In terms of flavor only the sweetness of candi sugar is noticeable – no caramel, no figs, no dates, no raisins, no alcohol – just sweet. No hops, no malt, no diacetyl. The palate is decent. I last had this beer in 2008 and can’t see where it’s changed. Whatever I paid for this bomber was too much for a beer that’s “meh” at best.
