Good, strong taste, but too sweet for me. Try combining with cheesefondue or meatballs

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice colour and nice nose. But a very flat beer, the taste is very disappointing. Waaaay too sweet for me and the two other people who tried it with me...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
opaque, very dark brown with a tannish head that disappears quickly. smell is leathery, dark, raisins, alcohol. taste is very pruney, a little bit chocolatey, some brightness in it. distractingly sweet by the end of it. palate seems strangely thin but overall comes across well. this is a pretty nice, though largely straightforward beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep silky dark colour. Aroma is chocolate and dark toffee. Taste is rich & boozy, possibly too much so. A touch sweet with chocolate and fruitcake but ultimately rather syrupy. Not diggin this too much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too much alcohol in aroma covering fruity, chocolate and caramel notes. Taste is sweet with alcohol bitterness, quite sticky mouthfeel, drinkable beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Marrone scuro dai riflessi rosso rubino; poca schiuma che svanisce rapidamente. Aroma di ciliegie, liquore sherry, frutta scura (prugna, datteri, fichi), caramello, spezie e note vinose. Al palato è dolce, prosperano sapori derivanti da frutta scura (prugna, datteri), uva passa, mirtilli, zucchero di canna, ciliegie, caramello, spezie e un qualcosa di liquoroso. Birra sbilanciata sulla dolcezza, con l’alcool sempre in primo piano, corpo pieno, carbonazione leggera.
