3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz from Glouglouburp - thanks, Dany! Dark, slightly cloudy amber. Very powerful malty smell, a barely detectable trace of pungent herbs, almost like mint with lamb, and a spicy note in there as well. Slight smoke, but cools out somehow – maybe a menthol sharpness is more accurate. Sweet as it warms, but not sticky. A hint of booze, but nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s incredibly beautiful, slightly hazy dark red with a creamy and lasting head. The aroma has a light sweetness and it’s very aromatic. It has notes of roasted malt and syrup. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt with a light, roasted bitterness, loads of caramel, maple syrup, raisin and other dark/dried fruits. It’s very well composed and harmonic, but a little too sweet in the long run, but perfect for sharing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle by way of glouglouburp.... rich looking hazy amber pour with a small tan head. the aroma is quite sweet... like butterscotch candy mixed with caramel, malt, faint maple, bubble gum and a touch of sour-ish earthiness akin to root vegetables fresh out of the garden. the flavor is pretty much the same with a bit of alcohol and and a kick of spiciness on the finish. there’s a definite note of wood and maple in the aftertaste. medium to full body with a stickiness which coats the lips. this is usually off putting but this has enough acidity, spice and alcohol heat so that it doesn’t get overbearing...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color; the medium head reduces quickly. It has a strong caramel aroma, and light aroma of vegetables, spices, liquorice. Medium body, with strong caramel flavor, medium sweetness, and a mixed touch of spices and vegetables (cinnamon and carrots for example). Low bitterness; in the final the alcohol is a bit too much evident. It reminds me some young and recent Fuller’s Vintage ones, but simpler.
