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

(on bottle) Minimal aromas in this one. Dark amber and clear color. very rounded caramel-sweet flavour; low carbonation. Candy finish, this must be served very cold or else it becomes cloying...did for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A weird beer--dark and strong, but with a lot of hop and with a number of strange flavor undertones.
