Chocolate aroma with apple. Very alcoholic flavor with apple, chocolate and licorice. Too alcoholic and therefore not well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: A 750ml bottle split with a friend. I poured the beer into a chalice to reveal a murky, dark brown pour with a nice fluffy off-white head.
S: The smell is full of fruits, chocolate, yeast, and spice.
T: A nice combination above the aforementioned sensations. However, the flavor doesn’t come together quite as nicely as I would have expected. A bit flat and muddled with a touch of alcohol.
M: The carbonation is plentiful and the body is medium,.
D: This beer is easy to drink, but considering its disappointing flavor, I didn’t exactly want to keep coming back to it. Rather unfortunate considering how much I enjoy Tremens.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml aged 4yrs. Dark brown with off white head. I find these bottles difficult to pour as you always get the bits. Solid, dark ale, caramel with hints of spiciness and a wine like flavour, quite sweetish still after the cellaring. Pretty reasonable.
