Pours a hazy orange with a big head that dissipates quickly. Grape scents with a candied scent. Very nice lacing and a great mouthfeel. There isn't too strong of an alcohol taste. This is a definite must buy for a real drinker.

0,33l bottle.
Poured into snifter. Clear orange-amber beer with one finger off-white head. Smell of yeasts, caramel, pale malts, hint of spices. Flavour is rich and alcoholic, warming, semeisweet, malts, yeasts, caramel. Oily, sticky, boozy. Actually, excellent representative of the style.

Amber appearance - as the name would lead you to expect. Nice foam and lacing. Not a big head though.

Aroma is of booze, sweetness and some raisins and dark fruits.

Taste is quite syrupy with a bit of typical Belgian yeast. It tastes good but not terribly complex or refined. It has a fairly boozy flavour.

Mouthfeel is medium and a bit sticky.

Overall, an enjoyable Belgian beer with many typical characteristics of a strong Belgian ale. It is classed in the same category as Duvel which is a more complex and better beer to my taste. However, this beer seems to overlap a bit with Belgian strong dark ales such as Chimay blue. I guess an amber ale is halfway between a Duvel and a Chimay blue. Anyway, good but a bit boozy and not amazing in any way

My mark out of a hundred would be 83.
