Very deep amber/near black in colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma was of plums, some yeast and must, bubble gum and alcohol. Flavour was citrusy, spicy(cloves), sugary sweetness, peppery and alcohol. Finish is smooth and quick.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2004 Nice chocolate colour with a frothy tan head. Mild chocolate and a bit of caramel with yeast on the nose before a slightly too strong alcohol taste hits you. Smooth lingering, slighty overly carbonated and mildly chocolate finish. OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured nice, had a delicate head and a dark copper color. The taste was fruity and nutty at the same time with a definite nutty aftertaste... Filled me up fast though and made my stomach feel a little wierd afterward. Not the kinda feeling I want/expect from a good beer. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I won't leap to a bad judgement.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an almost opaque coppery amber color with a thick beige head that just won't die. Rich, fruity aroma. Smooth and silky on the palate with a nice alcohol bite. Flavor is malty and fruity with a woodsy, smoky finish. Delicious beer. Very impressive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(7 Jan 04, 9% ABV) Heavy malt aromas with notes of perfume, pepper, aniseed, alcohol and a moderate yeastiness. The body is reddy black with a fizzy light-brown head that disappears very quickly. The body starts off with a light bitterness that grows to join a moderate sweetness in the finish. It has a medium, lively, syrupy mouthfeel with a noticeable bite of alcohol.
