Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

I’m just not digging this one. It poured with a nice fluffy head, but the aroma is rather bland and plain, slightly sweet, slightly yeasty, slightly acidic, inoffensive. Flavor’s the same way. Meh.

Yeast. Bitter aftertaste. Did not enjoy. Love the wrapper. Smelled better than the taste.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strong brownish head. The aroma is fermented, aniseed and fruity and the flavour is dry, fruity, slightly sour with a touch of sweetness. Overall a reasonable beer.

This beer poursed a dark sienna color and left a small head that disappated quickly, the smell of this beer is dried fruit (plum,apricots, and raisin). As I tasted this beer the malty character came to the front, sweet with a small amount of bitterness that finished smooth with a fruit dose on the palate.

Has a decent, yeasty and fruity aroma to it. Has a nice dark brown body, with a tan head. The flavor is kind of disappointing. Pretty good body and carbonation. Overall, it’s not as good as I was hoping it would be.

From 12oz. bottle. Pours a dark, murky brown with some hints of red when held to the light. Nice tan head with decent lacing. Nose is of sweet bread and some very promising dark fruits. Flavor starts with a dry coco upfront followed by some of those sweet breads and dark fruits. Alcohol in the finish detracts some as does the dryness.

Rating #400! Pours a fairly dark brown color with a somewhat thin tan head. Very appetizing aroma reminds me of candied cherries and caramel with a hint of cinnamon bread. Unfortunately, the flavor is not quite as exciting as the aroma. Some caramel with sweet sugary bread notes. Thoroughly enjoyable but not spectacular.
