4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours impenetrable black with a creamy beige head. Delicious dark fruity aroma with sweet caramel, plums, port, light alcohol, perhaps slight vanilla. Flavour is as powerful and massive as you could have wanted. Pretty much the same notes going on, massive fruity sweetness with some liquorice and a surprisingly dry ending, making it scarily drinkable. This is so fruity and port-like that it feels like one of those delicious aged imperial stouts or porters. It could have been thicker and creamier, but dang, this is good. Need more of this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear beer, reddish dark brown body and a dense, finger-thick light beige head. There’s some alcohol on the nose, but not much. Chocolate, coffee and a touch of raisins in the aroma. Brown sugar too. Super smooth on the palate, full-bodied and with a little warmth. Dark chocolate, mocha and a touch of raisins in the flavor. A little bitterness too, not much. A very nice beer, sort of one-dimensional, but nice. Looking forward to the next bottle. 111001

Dark coca-cola like look, small brown head. Plums and other dry sweet fruits on the nose together with roasted malt notes. Very sweet taste, hints of toffee, roasted malts, burnt caramel and some far chocolate hints. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a very sweet and light liquor like after taste. Good one.
