Draft, at the Map Room, Chicago. Dark body that “glows” with brown highlights around the edges. Slightly minty taste like a root beer, then a little bit of fruitiness. Finally resolves to a winey taste at the end. Complex brew that you don’t realize is overpowering you until it’s too late.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas de caramelo, mel, açúcar queimado, toffee e terroso. Cerveja de muito corpo, aveludada, que causa uma sensação de boca bastante complexa.
Teor alcoólico elevado, que gera sensação de aquecimento.
É uma cerveja densa, que exige harmonização com comida.

Another go at the most rated and available to me list. Good chewy grain and dark red fruit. Very smooth and almost a little light for the alcohol content. Finish is a little earthy and some fruit again. Pretty nice and surprisingly easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an average frothy off-white head that slowly diminishes. Body is hazy copper, sparkles are visible.
Aroma contains moderate malts (cookie, molasses, hay, roasted malts), light hops (orange, lime), light yeasts (leather) and raisin, grape, cola, spices and forest fruits.
Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet, followed by sweet and finishing in light acidic going to bitter.
Body is medium to full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation.
An enjoyable christmas beer. Quite a heavy one, though, clearly a delirium.
