3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours dark mahogany color with a tan one finger head that dissipates slowly and leaves a wispy lace. Sweet Belgian candi sugar aroma with burnt caramel in the background. Taste is similar to the aroma with sweet Belgian candi sugar, and hints of fruits in the background. Slight tastes of orange peel and ginger. Very strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slutfest! Light chocolate aroma? Flavor is light chocolate? Send out a search party, there seems to be a beer missing. Maybe some odd spicing. Light body. Shockingly little going on here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark amber, almost brown with a big fizzy head that quickly fades. The aroma is fruity sweet with a bit of spices. The flavor is similar with the spices showing up on the swallow. A bit to fizzy for me but quite refreshing.
