3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a deep clear redbrown colour with a brownish yellow medium head that’s pretty sparkly, and fades fast. Very rum and sherry-like aroma at first before dried fruits, leather, wood and brown sugar sets in. Not far from a belgian dubbel. Further on I find chocolate truffles and hints of rubber and anis. The flavour is sweet and more focused on oak and leather. Some coca cola in there, and alcohol warmth in the end. Soft and slick mouth feel, and a very light bitterness. One of a kind beer that would be well enjoyed during Christmas.

From bottle bought by my good friend. Truly wonderful mouth feel. Sticky and thick. Really nice subtle rum (I’m not a huge rum fan so this was just right for me). Deep, dark flavours and great whiff to it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
kinda lifeless, with some rum and roasted malts. Weak, unbalanced and not too impressive. Expensive too boot. Waste of money.
