3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at RBESG 2007. A brown beer with a red shine and no head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted malty and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of soy sauce, caramel, coffee, cinnamon, wood, and alcohol. The body is strong, and the alcohol burns in the throat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Dark brown, no head. Aroma of cocoa liqueur. Sweet and very potent. Concentrated flavour of cocoa powder, red berries and brandy. Full bodied is an understatement, it’äs massive. Still a bit young, so it’s rather sugary. A hugely warming beer with loads of character.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Bottle at RBESG 07 ... Deep Black ... Nice deep fruityness with a little meatyness in nose ... zingy fruity mouth feel ... Lovely juicy ... very sweet ... good balance. rich and complex. The 1/2 Idjit was nice but im definitly a full Idjit. I do hope this is at Stockholm beer festival I truly think this beer deserves a second examiniation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at RBESG 2007. Cheesy aroma. Hot alcohol. Too full on. Juicy but for me just too sweet.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Blac color, almost no head. Malty, milky vanilla aroma, chocolate and rather roasted. Malty, milky, creamy and vinous flavor, oily as hell. Maybe a bit too sweet. Strong oily, malty finish. Alcohol is there but is still very well hidden.

A Mes rate:
Bottle at RBESG. Pretty much exactly as its little half brother but with some extreme knobs on. The extra alcohol is the only thing that stands out compared between the two and for me it tips it just a little too far into the extreme. Excellent beer all the same.

bottled, at rbesg07 grand tasting. very dark shade of brown with next to no head; aroma for me was full of run’n’raisin ice cream; extremely sweet with a lacquered wood touch, plenty of vanilla, port, more and more sultanas and a hint of nutmeg. quite drinkable for such a high abv

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Made without dark malts this one and the information is of significant importance. This monster appears in a dark brown attribute, covered by a fading off-white cover. Sugary and fruity nose can’t help, but have us think of date squares. Molasses and corn beer background. More intense in mouth where it never approaches to feeling like 16%+. Full on berry, dark plum and date flavours. The fruitiness is its soul, but not its entire being. Licorice and earthy caramel finish. Syrupy, full-bodied, and begging for a quick teeth cleaning, but it remains a fine candy and from this brewer, a gift.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 28 Sep 2007) Dark brown colour with hints of black and ruby. Brief brown head. Full, malty nose with roasted coffee, wood, dried fruit and prunes. Vinous. Full, malty taste with chocolate, dried fruit, vanilla and loads of coffee in the finish. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel, almost cloying (just to say "full bodied" doesn’t seem to suffice). Obviously very sweet, actually too sweet for me. It’s a nice beer now, but give it a couple of years and it might be stunning.

Bottle, RBESG 07.
Port/sherry, strong warming alcohol feeling, prunes and cherries. Blends into a beautiful beer, which I’ll explore further at the first opportunity.
