3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Appeared impressivly dark amber color with a slightly soapy white foam. Aroma is based around pretty expressed malts and slightly touched by fruits. Tastes a bit sweet and sharply hopped by the very edge. Very well dealed with a lot of alcohol, it is clear that the beer type is very strong, but you know about the exact level only from the lable (or after getting a couple).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nose of chewing gum and green apple. The beer pours a dark reddish color, not so much foam. Taste is apples, toffee, butter and alcohol. Itís reminiscent of both Old Tom and Nils Oscar Barley Wine, in a way. The beer is a good sipper, but Iíve had better.
