3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille: Reddish chestnut-amber coloured, stable off-white foamy layer, sweet caramelly-toasty nose, some vinous traces detectable, a bit like a german Doppelbock; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, light to medium bodied, but a bit slim for a beer of 8.7%; some vinous traces, again, in the fruity-caramelly finish. a good brew, not too demanding...

Bottle shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a hazy dirt brown with a gray head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a combination of light fruit, grain and spice with a hint of caramel. Flavor starts with earthy grains and light fruit by a bit of backing spice.

(750 ml bottle, thanks oh6gdx!) Labeled 8.7% ABV. Clear dark brown color, lasting tan head. Slightly acidic, a bit roasted scent. Weak raissin mixed with chocolate and vinous taste, also alcohol. Warming alcohol feeling, but not in the bad way it sometimes is. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

@ ZBF 2010. Pours deep hazy amber with floaties. Little retention and no lace. Very malty, sweet, maple candies nose. Taste is similar with doppelbock like sweetness and light spices. A good scotch ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy brown pour with subdued off-white head. Aromas of caramel malts, some brown sugar, grapes, nuts, and brown sugary peaty funk. The palate is medium to dense, with a nice complexity of flavor, including notes of caramel malt, raisins, brown sugar, and slight old peaty funk. The whole thing never really gets what I would call sweet, but it is more semi-sweet. Well done.
