Bottle. Dark reddish brown with medium sized off white head. Very sweet malts, lots of peach, milk chocolate, wine gums, vanilla icecream, spices and some cognac. Full bodied and very nice creamy feel, with quite some alcohol presence. Good stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, plum, sweet fruits, hint of chocolate, candy sugar, spicy notes, raisins. Flavour is quite sweet, a bit too syrupy for me. Thick and full bodied. Nice ’dessert beer’.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Danforth LCBO obtained without realizing what I had picked up until I got home & ratebeered it. Man, people like this stuff. Pours chestnut brown with a thin slice of foam on top. It’s a slow sipper, with a bowl of fruit - apples, plums, pears -- flavour profile & a candy store sugar load out. It’s pretty fantastic. Warming & boozy at 11% but the booze is pretty stealthy here. Two complaints: too sugary (carbonate it some more & it could be on the soda side of things) & a little thin in the mouth. This bottle should be shared with a friend but I’m taking care of it solo as I fight mages in Skyrim.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from LCBO, Greektown in Toronto, ON. 11,0% Alc./Vol. Pours an opaque ruby brown colour with half of finger of tanned head. Wine - like aroma with lots of fruity notes such as apples, grapes, pears and some plums. Taste is complex and surprisingly sweet. Not as fruity as the aroma but caramel and tofee are pronounced. Very high carbonation does not get in the spectacular flavour. (Unlike Chimay Red)

1.5l bottle. Reddish dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, cloves, booze and dark fruits. There are a lot of things going on in the taste. Figs, reisins, ripe banana, cloves, caramel, chocolate and some fruity hops in the end. Truly awesome beer.
