Jado (533) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a mahogany brown with lighter honey highlights at the edge and a small cream coloured head. Aromas of dried fruit, toast, orange peel, dark caramel, black coffee and a whiff of booze. Taste is baked apple, raisins and dark bread at the front rising to a firm citrus zest bitterness. That falls off at the end to a spicy, fruity finish. More spice in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced and delicious.

tdoyledesign (178) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours a dark garnet color as advertised. Aroma is slight hops, malts and all kinds of spice. Reminds me of a winter night by the fire. Taste is spices up front, some mild malts and hops with a nutmeg and chicory finish. Mouth feel is smooth with a bit or carbonation. The spices change as it warms in your mouth.
