3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE TASTED: February 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Victory Nonick... OCCASION: a beer much sought after... APPEARANCE: dark brown body that displays HUGE chunks of sediment--been sitting too long? thick, chunky off-white head offers formidable lacing... AROMA: brilliant buttery, big malt aroma with dampened caramel and candy sugars; somewhat earthy, grainy but difficult to lay a nostril to...PALATE: smooth, thin and mellow--the mouth is refreshed as much as it’s engaged; slightly warming as the glass drains...TASTE: sweet and malty; a brown ale’s subtlety with fleeting fervor--a bit of barleywine funk at the end; low to no hop impression... OVERALL: the initial shock of floating substance (something I had not dealt with since the "claw" incident in Heavy Seas’ Saison art the shore a decade ago) still makes this review tainted; I have little doubt this rates better than I afforded it, but to rate authentically, I cannot be betray the experience itself...I may have to find another distributor to ascertain the true quality of this beer...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kurze Review von Untappd: Like the label says: fruity, sweet and strong. Could be more mouthfilling, and the end is quite short! Still a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Seiyu. Fruity nose, with sourish and near-pungent prunes, cherries, and stone fruit. Dark reddish-brown color, tan head. Sweet and malty, light roast, and some caramel and butterscotch. Thin-medium body. Very good balance. This would be wonderful from the cask. Pretty good as it is. The flavors really push.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33l bottle. Looks dark brown with a beautiful red shade. Nice clear appearance and sweet malty aromas on the nose. Strong caramel in taste. Lots of malty sweetness which finishes up with a mild warming alcohol touch. Hops feel grassy and rather sweet too. All flavors enhance when it sits in the glass and more alcohol comes in. Which actually is very nice in this case. All-in-all a great beer if you have patience to let it warm up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Seiyu for pretty cheap. Pours a clear dark brown with a small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Chocolate fudge on the nose immediately with some fruit, caramel and lightly toasted toffee with a hint of booze. Taste is sweet, with some light bitterness on the finish. Some espresso and roasted malt in there as well as a touch of leather. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from Seiyu. Rich, very rich malt nose, chocolate fudge, caramel, raisin, touch of smoke, bit of mineral and more dried fruit. Dark brown with orange, clear, thick lace.
