On tap at Mayor of Old Town. Appearance: very slight head, tannish head color, ok lacing, copper-red to brown color, clear. Aroma: oak, cherry, vinegar, citrus, grapes, raisins. Palate: light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, lasting finish. Taste: sweet, with a slight tartness and roast to the end, great port-like taste of raisins. Overall, I fell in love with this beer and can not wait to have it on tap again! Very complex and just delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Been a couple of years since I last had this beer and I guess itís only fitting that this is 23 months old. Slight gusher. Pours a somewhat murky orangish brown appearance with a creamy light brown head. Cola, caramel, brown sugar, slight dark fruity, plum aroma. Just a bit twangy, dark grape, raisin, candy sugar, somewhat spicy, light chocolate flavor with a fair amount of red grapes and a touch of tartness on the finish. No oxidation immediately obvious. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33cL. Evening, home. A dark brown beer with a beige creamy head. Aroma of fruits like berry, roasty caramel, alcohol. Heavy sweetness with light bitterness. Long alcohol/sweet finish. Warming. "Fat" (more than full) body. Oily texture. A good beer but not a foolish one as I expected.

Interesting one this. Pours a lovely brown red colour with small foamy light tan head. The smell instantly hits me of apples, spice, alcohol and malty chcoclate. Taste is spicey apples, citrus and corriander then the bitterness quickly comes in. The acohol is noticable but in a pleasant and warming way. The flavours grow and there is a lot going on here. It has a great frothy feel in the mouth and it stays bitter and mildy sweet and spicey on the finish. This is great stuff and I want another!
