4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 dark amber colour, minimal brownish off-white head; very complex aroma of pine resin, raisin, caramel, biscuit, wood, spices and some whiskey; taste of intensive sweetness (candy sugar, caramel, and raisin), and bitterness (pine resin) with whiskey- and wood notes, as well as herbal liqueur - very complex beer, but a bit too much for me; definitely not for everyday ’use’

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle, shared @Kaisla 30.11.2013. Poured mahogany, clear, no head. Strong dark fruity aroma with toffee, wood, sweetness and alcohol. Flavor has raisins, toffee, hops, wood, mild smokey notes. Full bodied, oily and sticky. Long warming sweet toffee finish. Complex and heavy stuff. Could well try this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its a little all over the place, for something that is so strong you would expect it be a big full on badboy but it just does not cut the mustard. Fruit pie with added sherry or whisky, it lacks depth to make it great

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange amber coloured brew. To small head, won’t hold. Very siropy sweet, some vanilla, caramel. Lots of fruits. Not bad, but over the top sweet and siropy. The after taste is awesome.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light lacey auburn. Rich boozy and red berry, sweet but oakey. Real envelope sticky odd sherry vanilla dryness. Smooth, light enough as it’s consistently thin with a little burnt seedy wood finish.
