Amber, lightbrown lasting head. Aroma from toffee and cream. Flavor brings chocolate, mushroom (!) and toffee. Spicy flavor with some alcohol, nutty, earthy and with a spicy finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a nice deep red with a small off white head. Smells of cherries, roses and sugar. Tastes very unusual. Some nice bitter sour notes. Some grapey elements are present, but otherwise, this one’s very hard to place. Definitely unique,

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A really sweet strong ale. Smells of smoked malt, and bourbon. Head is small and light a deep red brew. Taste is a bit thick and overwhelming in sweetness. Not good in large quantities okay to sample

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
There’s a touch of the sweet and sour about this one. Plus a big alcohol burn. Majors on malt and caramel. Some dried fruit. I often struggle with strong malty beers and this was no exception. Not exactly coarse, but not particularly refined either. OK, but I couldn’t really get into it. Just too sweet for me. Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl. Nice brown/red colour (not too dark) with low carbonation. Sweet malty aromas but not too much sweet. I enjoyed this one a lot, even though the bottle could be fresher. Hides the alcohol very well. Looking forward to try it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) My version was only 7% ABV. Dark brown with a reddish hue, decent head. Very malty and full-bodied, with some roasted, sweetish notes - although the sugar never gets cloying. Reminds me of an Abbey Dubbel. 280597
