3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice deep brown colour, rich in taste and aroma. At first a very smooth taste but a bit too alcoholic when the beer is going through your throat. A great beer for a winter evening, pure relaxation.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown with medium sized off white head. Very sweet malts, lots of peach, milk chocolate, wine gums, vanilla icecream, spices and some cognac. Full bodied and very nice creamy feel, with quite some alcohol presence. Good stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, plum, sweet fruits, hint of chocolate, candy sugar, spicy notes, raisins. Flavour is quite sweet, a bit too syrupy for me. Thick and full bodied. Nice ’dessert beer’.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Danforth LCBO obtained without realizing what I had picked up until I got home & ratebeered it. Man, people like this stuff. Pours chestnut brown with a thin slice of foam on top. It’s a slow sipper, with a bowl of fruit - apples, plums, pears -- flavour profile & a candy store sugar load out. It’s pretty fantastic. Warming & boozy at 11% but the booze is pretty stealthy here. Two complaints: too sugary (carbonate it some more & it could be on the soda side of things) & a little thin in the mouth. This bottle should be shared with a friend but I’m taking care of it solo as I fight mages in Skyrim.
