3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Black with beige head. Rich vanilla aroma that makes you expect something unbalanced. Upon tasting I find that cherries lies behind a thin curtain of vanilla and coffee. Honey rounds off possible edges is the mid sized body. Piney bitterness creeps out late and I realize that my fears of lack of balance were unfounded. This is a good, unusual beer!

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Dark brown, almost opaque. wonderfull aromas of roasted coffee, cocoa, vanila and moca which lingered in the glass long after the beer was gone. some vanila, cherry and faint coffee flavours. Body is quite light and the aftertaste is short. Not bad.

Draught at the "Pre-Pesach Keg Party" 2007. Black with a brown head. Aroma of vanilla, cream, a bit of roastiness. Flavor with roastiness, cherry, coffee and vanilla. A medium to full body. A very interesting beer, but not exactly my type of beer, since I don’t really like vanilla. Very nice anyway. 7/4/7/4/14=3.6
