The_Osprey (2416) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottled Jan 2013 at 15.2%, red wax. Dark brown, orange tinge, still, clear, small white head. Aroma is sickly strawberry jam, oxidation, sherry. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, slightly foamy, tooth-coating sugar. Taste is very sweet, strawberry jam, caramel, strawberry cream chocolates, no alcohol coming through at all. HUGE sweet beer. Nice flavours, but way too sweet. If you like eating strawberry jam from a spoon, with sugar sprinkled on top, then you’ll love this one.

teorn88 (3452) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
33cl waxed bottle. It pours a deep ruby almost brown color with a minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasty with notes of dark chocolate, red wine, wild berries, red fruit marmalade. Taste is big bold juicy and extremely sweet and tasty. Bi notes of red wine, ripe fruits, tangy red berries, marmalade, chocolate sponge and light liqueur. Not boozy, hides the ABV very well. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, big bold bastard of a beer, me like it

Huhzubendah (2758) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Thanks Brad! Orange / copper body with an off-white head. Aromas of cotton candy, orange, butterscotch, alcohol. Sweet, boozy. Elegance emerges mid to late palate with a smooth finish. Still, too sweet and unabashed. Fruity elixir.

RexTalionis (2793) - FINLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep copper in color with an off-white head. Barrel and oak at first in aroma, later on some vanilla and malty sweet notes appears as well and after that you get the quite intense aroma of red wine on the nose. There might be some notes of red berries too. Nice actually. Ripe garden fruits, some vanilla, sweet semi-dark bready notes and red wine oakyness mixed with little bit of vanilla spicyness in taste. Sweet, well yes but not too cloying fortunately. Some vinous and toffee notes towards the end. Nice warming effect too as the evenings are getting colder and colder. As a late evening dessert and as a nightcap this is quite okay.
