Bottle @ Arminís place, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a clear, dark reddish purple appearance with a pink head. Big clove, apple berry, honey, a bit woody, sweet aroma. Spicy clove, vanilla, tree bark, honey, berry, pear flavor. A little too spicy for my taste.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, dark reddish black pour with thin pinkish head, aroma is spicy with lots of clove, hints of berry, honey, slight orange, lemon hints of cinnamon almost, touch of vanilla. Taste is a mix of lots of orange zest, clove, hints of earth, nice honey, vanilla in there, some slight blackberry in there, finishing fairly sweet, spicy. Interesting for sure,

Split a bottle with some friends. Poured a real clear bloody color with a pink head. Aroma was immediately an overwhelmingly strong clove one, but wasnít so overpowering later on. Flavor was nice blackberry notes, with some light orange character, cloves are there.

18 oct 2013, bottle. Bright cranberry, clear, no bubbles. Nose is exactly like clove cigarettes. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Tastes of cloves and cranberry juice. Great for what it is.

Big clove and blackberry notes. The clove was a bit overwhelming at first but it mellowed out after the first sip.

I loved it. I have nothing to compare it to. Clove blast dissipates in blackberry sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from 500mL bottle. Just a tiny bit of light pink head to a deep clear purple liquid. Nose is big honey, blackberry and citrus. The clove comes through in the taste more than the smell. Big honey and blackberry in this one. Quite nice!

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Bottle: didnít take notes during the time of drinking, but I remember this one quite well. Lots of honey, start to finish, with good, almost-tart blackberry and orange notes throughout. Clove hits hard mid-palate and lasts well into the finish. Aftertaste of clove and sweet honey. I like clove, so this didnít bother me. Thought it was quite tasty.
