4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours cloudy, red-brown with a faint, bubbly white head. Sugary malt nose with ripe fruits, toffee and bread. Very big sweet flavor, a touch syrupy, with jammy fruits, dates, plums, cake and toffee. Full bodied with soft, chewy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with tons of ripe, candied fruits, jam, figs, plums, cake. Very rich, but not overly cloying in the end. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s completely still reddish brown. No head, not bubbles. The nose is spple, spiced mulled wine, some cocoa posder and red fruits. Te taste is sweet liquid cotton candy, some spiced fruits, more mulled wine and caramel. Hints of red grape and rich rotting wood (in a good way). Diverse, complex palate. Soft, very drinkable. Wow, what a beer. One of the best of the festival. Complex, rewarding character.
