330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: First thing I noticed was the lack of sediment inthe bottle, amber colour, initial one fat finger head morphed into lid of foam, clear, not much lacing on the glass.

S: Banana, clove and phenol.

T: The first sip triggered a coughing fit, seriously strong stuff, followed the nose with the clove, banana and phenol, pretty sweet, to say it had a boozy kick to finish with would be an understatement, it burned like no other.

M: So thick I could have eaten it, carbonation was non existent, smooth.

O: Mellowed as it went on but not a subtle beer, I would describe this as Belgium’s equivalent of Special Brew, I think I’ll put the remaining 3 bottles away and hope that age calms them.

This poured a translucent copper colour and produced a thin white ring of head. The nose leads with toffee and malt. There is a sweet fruitiness as well along with dates and dark fruit. The flavour is much of the same along with an alcohol warmness. Not the burn that you might expect with a 11.8% ABV. The mouthfeel is a bit on the syrupy side but that adds to the experience because the carbonation balances it out.

A: Cognac coloured body with a small ring of a head.
S: Massive caramel.
T: Certainly repeats the nose with loads of zingy buttercomb toffee, and then some. Theres a touch of liquorice.
O: Can't taste the alcohol in this one.
