4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a nice 1/2" light khaki head... the brew is dark brown with beautiful garnet highlights... good lacing.
Nose is dark toast... very malty... light caramel...
Flavor mirrors the nose... no chocolate like some darker versions (like Celebrator)... just pure malty goodness... something that I associate with dates with warmth, so does a grainy sweetness.
Very smooth body... the head is so creamy it almost feels like nitro.
Worthy of the hunt and the reputation.

Marrom claro com nuances de rubi. Boa formação mas pouca estabilidade de espuma. Aroma evidente de toffee, biscoito, pão preto, tosta. Sabor condizente com os aromas. Corpo médio-baixo, amargor leve. Carbonatação leve. Aftertaste doce, levemente aquecedor.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, rostad malt, karamell, plommon, nötter, brunt socker, russin med toner av kakao och choklad. Mycket sötma, stor kropp med tydlig beska. Rund och len med fina smakar.

Ripe plums and caramel in the nose. Appearance is clear, brownish, with red highlights, not much to the head and nothing getting left behind on the glass. Palate is delicate, a touch sticky, balanced by a certain sourness, a very nice palate. Taste is like plum juice from the my Grandmothers canned plums, quite a bit of tartness in the finish. Pretty darn good. Thanks Ron for coming up with this one for me, I’ve looked for it for years.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Ruby body with a thin off-white that quickly fades. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of black cherry, toffee and prune. The flavour of treacle dominates subtle notes of cherry, candy and rye bread. Medium body with a sleek, oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. A lovely, moreish beer - a real winter warmer.
