3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Barely see-through brown color with a small cream colored head. Musty and tart aromas of pitted fruit as well as green apples. Sweet flavors dominate, but not grainy sweetness. Flavors of ripe fruit mainly with a leathery aftertaste. Not bad. Thanks BuckeyBoy for sharing!

Bottle Pours a hazy moderate mahogany with a dense full light tan head. Nice chocolately aroma with some vinous wine like notes. Flavor is malty and chocolatey. Light brown sugar componants and a soft smooth palate. A bit sweet, but very tastey.
Thanks again to BuckeyeBoy for this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33l bottle. Pours deep brown, beige head quickly dissapears.
Taste to me seems very metallic, quite sweet and malty but metal comes over above all else.
Not awful but I did not particularly enjoy this beer. I’ve certainly had better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from daknole, thanks! typical doubel pour, dark mahogany color, with a big beige head. Aroma is metallic, with some ripe fruit, plums, apple, figs, and raisins, with some mealy malt to round it out. Flavour is sweet, with more raisins, and some plums, with a good malt backbone to balance things. The metallica taste seems to linger. The Finish is smooth, sweet, no bitterness. a decent double, but i wouldnt drink this everyday. I just cant kick the metallic flavour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Refreshing sourness compliments a sweet brown sugar aroma interlaced with tobacco, dried fruit, and a touch of mocha. Clear, but dark red-brown with some white wisps on top. Flavour is a touch sour, sort of a cider vinegary sourness, along with some nice toasty and chocolatey malt and dried fruit and brown sugar. A bit sweet, but this seems to completely hide any ethanol flavour together with a gentle, woody bitterness. Light body with low carbonation and a lasting, brown sugary bitterness. Very nice.

Had this on tap in New Orleans at a bar called BeerFest. Poured a deep brown with ruby highlights. Aroma is of dark fruit and caramel. Flavor is the same with hints also of chocolate and toffee. Mouthfeel is very good. Drinkability is pretty high on this one as well. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown that becomes a lovely ruby red when held to the light. Medium sized tan head that dissipates at a moderate rate. Potent nose of plums, figs, cloves, and other herbs and spices. Fruity taste like brandy or perhaps port wine. Sweet and fruity finish.
