COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a lively head which powers a great aroma. Looks are great, except for a bunch of floaties. Sweet malt with a nice carmel taste.

Disappointing, no character. Best thing about the beer is the bottle, which is why I bought it. Nothing to recommend, too many good beers out there to waste your time on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABT_S54 (168) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Delirium glass. Pours a dark brown colour which turns to a garnet red in candle light with a generous bubbly head. Aroma is malty sweetness and the taste is more of the same. Toffee-like sweetness with berry notes and caramel. Not particularly complex and not as good as Delirium Tremens or Noel.
