Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. There is a little malt aroma but not much else. The flavor is malty with chocolate and toffee and has a mild finish with some brandy like charatersictics.

Had a strange odor. Pours a dark orange-brown, tan head. Very malty flavor, a bit too cloying. Not impressive.

Dark brown pour with a creamy head that lasts. Aroma was full with sweet maltyness and hints of fruit and spice. Tasted sweet with caramel and raisins. There is some nice flavors of fruit and malt as well. Finished well with a long dry sweet feel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Dark brown beer with a light head and a plain rich aroma. Flavor profile is sugary and fruity, some raisin, cocoa and tobacco before a finish which is lightly spicy, acidic, bitter and sour. Palate is a bit on the carbonated side for the style, body is medium-full.

Aroma:I personally found this beer to have a sweet fruity peach scent with alcohol evident in the nose.
Appearance: Clear ruby red with a foamy rocky head. Quite nice.
Flavor: Malty, with sweet fruits, and yet dry as well.
Palate: Back to the malty and dry
Overall: Not bad at all. Interesting beer and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled- 330ml. Purchased 6-pack at Beverages, & More! in Pleasanton, California. I have been a devotee of this beer for about 13 years now. Unfortunately, it is one of those beers that used to be better back then. The beer back then used to much more complex than it is now. The bouquet is raisins & cherries, with a Belgian candi sugar entry, with a spicy, almost treacle toffee finish. It’s a good Double, but not the best of course. However, it is still better than most American Doubles... I said most, not all! Praise the LORD!
