(Butcher’s Tears Ex Voto) Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 9%
Deep mahogany brown colour on the body, clear, with good activity in it. One finger of off-white head, good density and retention. Light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of light nuts, sugars, light alcohol, something ginger-like which I guess is the grains of paradise.
Sweet taste, with caramel, spices, ginger, light grains and nuts, light alcohol.
Medium body, good ative carbonation.

Love the very metal label. Amber in colour and opaque in appearance. Smells a bit malty and a bit like, well, alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark malts, caramel, ripe dark fruits, candy sugar, yeast, light chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet, a bit too sugary for my taste. Still, the aroma makes up for it, at least partially.
