3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Jesus, it’s been HOW long since I put in a rating? I fear my backlog. Deep clear fizzy red-brown with a smallish diminishing tan fizzy head. Fairly simple aroma - fruit, alcohol, quite sweet and yeasty, but not all that complex; a little herbal. Taste is also simple - alcohol, prune and sweet malt - my wife says it has a metallic/ferrous aftertaste, but I think that was synergy. Stingingly carbonated, a little thin, not boozy in the finish at all - not bad, doesn’t taste over 10% - borderline "meh"

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First bottle! Pours deep brown-red with gold highlights, looks both serious and beautiful. Loads or rich flavors like ripe grapes, figs, vanilla, mineral and toffee. Some high notes like lemon and nuances of manure and barnyard. Has a creaminess elegance and mystique I was wholly not expecting, wow! Gonna stock up - I have a new friend and maybe it will age well.

Big inviting aroma, raisins and bubblegum. Very nice pour, pours brown, ruby red in the light, big light brown head. Taste is sweet and rich, fruity, good velvety texture in the mouth with a full body. Long aftertaste, very slight spice, will drink again! Nice to see some new trappists.
