Completely dark black/brown with thick but sparse head. Molasses, banana, cherry, nutmeg, malt, smoke, toffee and chocolate mingle on the nose. Rich with little carbonation, nice creamy sweetness followed by roasted malt and banana...Yum

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Pours a strikingly beautiful dark brown/mahogany with a thick light brown head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, dark fruits and a touch of alcohol. Taste is totally delicious. Sweet and full bodied with plenty of roated/toastedmalt, caramel, raisins, plums, hops, coffee, smoke and a hint of chocolate. Very complex. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy. Great lacing and head retention. Highly recommended.

This beer was recomended by Büch Dich and Sham. The pour was very dark and very thick. Very thin layer of tan head that disapated before I could set the glass down. Very dark with an amber highlight. Smell is of malt and coffee. Some plum overtones came to the nose. Taste was very pleasing. Had a very complex taste to it. A little fruit, some male, a little roasted hops. Some mocha. Very good beer. One of my favorites so far. Would recomend to anybody!

Bottle. Pours deep brown/burgundy, with a huge head and great lacing. Aroma of malt, toffee, slight peat, cognac, and even corn flakes. Tastes malty, with caramel, port, peat, fruit, and a slightly sweet finish. As it warmed it gained complexity. A wonderful brew, and very deserving of a top 50 slot on RB.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red color, pretty much black, with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with almost a dark fruity sweetness to it. This beer starts sweet and malty and ends with a chocolate bitter aftertaste. In my opinion the bitterness at the end is a little too strong.. Still a great brew though.

Has a rich and creamy texture with a hint of vanilla and a nice chocolatey aftertaste. A bit overrated.
