4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Murky reddish-brown beer with minimal rim of creamy foam. Really intense aroma is a complex mix of dark fruits like dried plums, raisins, dried apricot and berryish alcohol. Strong earthy/woody note with dark chocolate and loads of heavily toasted sugar syrup. Heavy, almost oily maltiness is not as caramelly as first impressions would suggest. It is more like liquid bread and juice squeezed from dried plums. Finishes dryish fruity with woody bitterness, herbal notes and alcoholic warmth. Caramel seems to evolve in to something towards vanilla. Full bodied, low carbonation. Very good.
