(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.

"Not sure what to think of this one. Overpriced for sure, and one of my least favorite Evil Twin beers to date. Not as yeasty as most BSAs but doesn’t really fit anywhere else either. String and a little sweet, with a unique hard to peg flavor, presumably from the muscovado sugar. "

Bottle. Cloudy dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, oranges, banana, plums. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, raisin, banana with a peachy and spicy yeast finish. Pretty sweet stuff, though the taste has a nice complexity which makes this an enjoyable beer. For sharing I might add.

Aroma - dark caramelized sugars, alcohol, somewhat nutty aroma, a little fig
Appearance - very dark brown almost black; body is opaque; alcohol; tan head is about 2" and eventually rings out
Taste - has a rich dark caramelized sugar presence; some fig, raisin, and a little bit of spices; there is a rich rum sort of quality
Palate - body is heavy; the texture is sticky, thick, and slick; carbonation is lively; the finish is sort of alcoholic and a rich caramelized sugar sweetness.

Bottle. Brown pour. Over ripe dark fruit, sour vinegar, infection, remains of malt sweetness. Terrible.

50cl bottle at BRU, shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Deep mahogany with a tan head. Sweet candy sugar like aroma with burnt sugar, caramel, malt, dark dried fruits and just hints of spices. Sweet and sugary with flavour of raisins and a very mild bitternes. Quite nice, but still a bit too sweet.

Pretty good stuff although too expensive for the style. Nice dark pour with a decent head but no retention. Nose of dark fruit, sweet malt, and yeast. Taste follows the nose with a little candied fruit mixed in. Sweet but not cloying in the least.
