3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, poured into an english pint glass. ABV 8.5%
Itís only 4 oí clock and I hadnít noticed the alcohol when I grabbed the bottle. Too bored to go downstairs again and pick up a lighter beer, I decided to open it. Deep orange/red colour on the body, two fingers of lightly beige head, with average retention. No lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of fruits. Apricots, grapes. Sugars too.
Taste follows the aroma, but very sweet. Lots of sugar, malts, the alcohol notable and then lots of fruity notes.
Medium on the body, light carbonation.
Overall, good ale, but a bit on the sweet side for me.

Bottle. Red amber beer with small head that disapears. Aroma is malts. Taste is sweet malts, madeira, hops and alcohol. This slightly oily and medium bodied. A nice beer which is balanced well enough. The alcohol does come through though in the taste. I like a little more subtlety. Otherwise very decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Red-Brown color with ejote low head. Correct aspect. Sweet aromas:honey, caramel and orange liquor; and roasty aromas: coffee. Very good and intense flavour. Roasty notes are dominant in mouth. Aswell some creamy, vanilla and spicy nuances. M√©dium bodied and intense bitter-sweet taste. First the sweetness and then the bitterness. Not very long end.
