Pours dark brown, with tan head. For a American Strong Ale this is a full bodied beer. Rich malt taste, and good balance with the hops.

500ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Saveur Biere. Sticky lasting foam and Black/Red colour. Berries at aroma and reminds amber ale. Interesting and fine taste with strong berries. Nice one, but not awesome.

Great dark mahogany with a beige head. Aroma has alot of organic grassy hops, hazelnuts, weak roasted notes, caramel/toffee, light vanillaish and sweet fruits. Taste is more dominated by hops and citrus fruits but still some dark nuances like caramel, toffee, darker fruits.Very nice

Aroma suave de pasas y uvas. Muy oscura por un ’amber’. Sabor de caramelo, quemado, tostada, pasas y regaliz. Bien rica! Muy buen cuerpo. Excelente.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark red, port-like in colour. There’s a real melting pot of aromas - caramel, booze, berries. The beer delivers as promised. It is creamy, quite a full body giving a good mouthfeel, and has the caramels of a scotch ale, booziness of a barleywine with some berries thrown in and the bitter hoppy finish of an IPA that lingers at the end. And yet it all comes together quite nicely.

This comes across somewhere between a double ipa and a barley wine, and thats ok by me. Lovely light syrup mouthfeel and sweetness with some tropical fruit hops. Yum

OK, so this aims to be a menage a trois between three of my all time favourites. And it does not disappoint. The balls-out hops are suitably tempered by the similarly testicularly external malts. Suffice to say, I find this rather drinkable.
