3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Hazy darkish red with a very small head. Lots of dried fruit, some fermented strawberry jam, and notes of glue in the nose, with a touch of spices. Flavor is more spicy with cardamom, loads of dried fruit, alcohol well hidden. Quite full body, sticky palate with low CO2. Quite sweet and sticky, but an enjoyable brew as such, with all the dried fruitiness (but also the strawberry). 5447
