look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The beer was poured from the bottle into a glass. The appearance was okay, nothing special but also not bad. The taste was not good, in my opinion. Not balanced, too heavy alcohol taste, for my taste. Very strong sweetness. The beer was nice and thick though. Overall, not bad but also not great.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Amber Sienna, clear filtered, lots of carbonation, off white head fades quickly to foam.

S: Bananas, candied sugar, Belgian yeasts, an alcohol burn but its well hidden behind the sweetness and floral quality.

T: Sweet floral quality, cologne like alcohol presence which burns all the way down into the chest cavity and stomach. The Belgian style yeasts and banana and candy are there, paired equally in presence with alcohol burn ad presence.

M: Thick and firey and leaning towards rum in consistency more than most beers. Medium carbonation.

O: Must try this one. Noted for its alcohol presence, but is a good Belgian as well. A little too much alcohol for my liking, but I love its uniqueness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appears as a cloudy, dark maize. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of alcohol, slight dark fruit, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of spice. Fits the style of an Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, dark citrus, hint of pale malt, and a hint of spice. Overall, very similar to Kwak, with more pronounced alcohol flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: 2.5ml bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small head that fades quickly to specks of lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits and bit of spice. It reminds me a bit of brandy with just a trace of alcohol.

T: Taste of malt, caramel dark fruit and a bit of spice. Muted bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Fairly light body, smooth and silky texture. Very well balanced as the 12% ABV is well hidden.

O: The ideal sipper to relax with at the end of the day.
