Pour is a deep red with no head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is plum and prune with a hint of nutmeg. Lots of subtle things going on with this brew. Lots of malts and fruit flavors to recomend this brew.

Bottled, pasteurised. Dark brown beer with off white head. Full bodied fruity soft beer, low on carbonation which is great and not too much loss on pasteurisation. Late roasted malty taste, good bottled beer.

Poured dark brown, light white head. Smelled somewhat musty. Kind of an offputting burnt malt taste. I am not a big fan of this beer.

Bottle, at home.
Dark red with lareg off-white head, quickly gone. Good lacings. Unfiltered. Aroma sweet fruity and spicy. Flavor first sweet of malt, then changing to more bitterness of hops and yet fruity. Long finish. Well balanced. Medium body, oily, soft carbonation.

Nice deep red colour,but an off-putting almost cat litter aroma.Once you get past the smell the taste has a nice fruit quality,sweet with a bitter palate.Its quite good,but its not the beer for me!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yeah. Pours a rich red/brown color, somewhat hazy, very, very slight head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Pears, grape, and sweet malts. Flavor is rich and full, tart and sweet to start, lots of medium to dark fruit flavors, slight spiciness, then gives way to a moment of alcohol, then mellows with a great balance of hops and malts, toffee and slight peppery flavors are followed by a bitter dry finish. Nice complexity.

Medium brown with a slight red tinge. Red wine, porty , a little stewed fruit on the nose. Shows good depth. Feels a little hot from the alcohol lift but not a particularly strong beer at 6.3%.
Shows good balance in the mouth with dark malty characters (not roasted) and again some heat. Finishes a touch bitter (e.g extracted in wine parlance) leaving the beer ever so slightly disjointed.
