3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s unclear, red-brown with sediment and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, dark fruits, caramel and sweet coffee. The mouth-feel is slightly fizzy. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, filled chocolates, dark fruits, light cocoa, and the finish is dry with a light bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a slight brown hue and a light brown head that lasts and laces nicely. Aroma has a slight wine note that combines surprisingly well with a strong sweet malt backbone with sweet grain and biscuit. Flavor began surprisingly wine forward with dry near tart red fruits that mellowed to allow caramel, biscuit and sweet grains come out for an interesting finish. Different but enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No head, copper-foxy beer. Solvent, diacetyl, powerfull and imposing - and not pleasing. Sharp MF, not finished, worts in full fermentation, hence the diacetyl, etc. Slick, buttery MF... Finish the beer, please.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Caramel-glazed plums and dried apricots are offset by mild citrusy tartness in this barely carbonated dessert brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim film of foam covers the murky amber-laced dark russet.
-The very low carbonation makes the mouthfeel heavier than it should be. After reading other reviews, it seems to me their bottle conditioning might not be perfectly controlled.
-The finish is very quiet if you consider the loquacious dextrins.
-Orange peel subtleties appear underneath.
-The fruit salad seems to involve cherry allusions as well.
-here is little to no hop presence in here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Dec. 23rd Beer Advent Calendar. Murky medium brown body crowned with a bubbly tan head that compresses into a half-inch mattress. Nice malty character here, yeasty, toasty, with sweet dates, crusty bread, and dark fruits all playing on the palate. Just a hint of sourness, maybe more of a lactic acidity providing a nice finish. Enjoyed it thoroughly.
