Dark brown color, candy sugar, caramel hit the nose instantly. A little deeper reveals spicies. The mouth starts sweet. WOW, a lot going on, milk chocolate, alcohol, dark cherries, anise, oranges, bananas, toffee, a bit of burnt raisins, with hop balance. Really complex. Syrupy. Warming, inviting complex finish, chocolatey, earthy, woody finish. I cant belive it took me so long to try this.
Only, complaint is too sweet (which is saying alot coming from me). One bottle is plenty

Voimakkaan makuinen todella hyvä olut. Kannattaa maistaa.
Maku on voimakkaan aromikas. Joskin vähän hedelmäinen.

A Pavlov’s pop of the cork and it’s Fernando’s "You look marvelous"! Ruby and as dark as I have seen a Belgian. Now the divorce papers...
AL-KA-HOL...way upfront and throughout. Dark fruit,bread,toffee,slight mineral to a lil bit of a sticky finish. Give them a couple of tenths for accurate description. A must try again.

Draft. Dark to red brown pour with a sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty flavor with a little more carbonation than I thought. Not too bad......

Bottle Pours a clear brown with a large frothy light brown head, mostly lasting with decent lacing. Aroma is fruity. Taste is okay with pretty hidden alcohol. Has a decent carbonation and an okay duration. Has a hefty body and a pretty good aftertaste.

Hazy dark mahogany hue, with an atomic mushroom tan-colored head, the nose is one of bready, caramelized malt, toffeish notes, nice sweet dark dried fruits of plums, figs ,dates, burnt brown sugar, chocolatey accent in the aroma, follows through on a full-bodied palate with a sweet caramelized malt, burnt brown sugar, with a good sweet character hidding well the alcoholic strenght, fruity accent of dark dried fruits, molstly figs, dates, raisins and a toffeish note, leading towards a sweet malty side and a tickling acidic finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 The commercial description is perfect. Charcoal brown w/ champagne size bubbles. Full, semi creamy froth that reduces to a creamy island. Froth is very clingy. Alcohol is well hidden w/ a touch of sweet malt. Hazed, dark honey brown color. Full nectar. Flavors of stonefruit, grapes, melon, tobacco, honey, bitters, clove spice. Finish is bittered w/ a delayed asprin mechanism. Tingles the lips.
