3.51/5 rDev +1.2%
Pours a deep clear brown, light reddish tint around the edges. Off-white film for a head.
Smells of light biscuit malts, hint of caramel.
Biscuity malt flavor with a hint of caramel sweetness. Some light cane sugar sweetness too.
Medium to full body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.
A descent high abv ale with a good malty flavor. The worst I can say about it is it is a little boring. Hides its strength, goes down easy enough. If you can get it for the right price, it's worth trying as a money-to-abv value. Otherwise, there are better beers and it's not really very true to the style.

2.95/5 rDev -15%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass
Thick Reddish brown coloring, decent head to start, which soon evaporated. Very little lacing
Smell was pretty much sweet and malty, no boozy smell, despite the 10.10.
Taste was...well, pretty weak. Sweet, again with no strong alcohol taste. Didn't seem like I was drinking a high abv beer.
Mouth was decent and thick
Overall, an okay beer, but nothing to write home about.

undated12 oz bottle served in a Piraat snifter.
Appearance – Pours a mahogany color with a small and short-lived off-white head. The head left only a sparse spots of lacing.
Smell – Lightly sweet and moderately boozy. Some notes of baked bread and fruits, with a touch of peat smoke.
Taste – Starts quite sweet with caramel, caramelized sugar, and some breadiness. Some smoke works into the taste, becoming peaty in the finish. A boozy, beer liqueur character.
Mouthfeel – Medium+ body; low carbonation; moderate alcohol harshness and warmth.
Overall – More boozy then desirable, even for 10% ABV. Relatively fruity as if a somewhat Belgian version of the style.

A- light cola like look to it with no head and no lacing.
S- fruity aroma with a biscuity maltness on the back end. nothing too much to write here.
F- a bland fruitiness that is like plum or date. bready malts that tastes outdated.
M- smooth and creamy and this is probably the best part of the beer.
O- not a good wee heavy and i would only try this in a pinch. It gets better as its gets warmer. not a good sign.
