Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, dried fruit, sweetness, licorice, yeast and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palaye is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong, fruity flavor has hints of malt, yeast and horehound, and is quite sweet, maybe a bit too sweet. It pours a clear Coca-cola brown with an average light tan head. Flavor fills the mouth, being almost candy-like, having fruity, horehound, malty and caramel notes - tasty, but a bit sweet for a beer. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz. Overall, very drinkable if a bit on the sweet side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Murky brown with a thin tan head. Very mild, almost non-existent, aroma. Some light malts and not much else. Mild flavor. Some light malts and a touch of sweetness with a hint of bitterness at the end. Alright.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small head that goes away fairly bit of ease.
The aroma is molasses and cinnamon up front. Some brown sugar, pear and fruit cake show more prominently as it warms.
The flavor is spicy and sweet, but not over-sweet... really. Rich flavors of molasses and dark fruit along with brighter cherry and pear fruit notes. The more it warms the more the soft nuttiness comes through, which is really really nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark pure-brown body. Just the faintest bit of light khaki colored foam. No lacing.
S: Tons of caramel, brown sugar, a pinch of molasses and rum-like fruit sweetness.
T: Like the nose, this is one healthy blast of sugary sweetness. Surprisingly, despite the clear abundance of residual sugars, I didn’t find it to be cloying at all. There is a nice cane-rum like flavor that brings some
M: Given the sweetness, the medium body, gentle carbonation and smooth finish, helped keep any cloying vibe away. Impressive.
O: A robust assault, but ultimately lacking the depth and complexity to be a mainstay.
