Aroma is fruit and very tart, similar to a lambic. The flavor is fruit, mild sweetness, malts and an alcoholic/warm finish.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
22oz bomber into a snifter.
Pours a completely opaque dark brown with a tiny head that quickly dissipates
Aroma of dark fruits and a little bit of pine. I don’t really pick up too much of the bourbon/whiskey aging.
The flavor is immensely sweet right off the bat. Some roasted malt, cough syrup, dark fruit and some tartness. A tiny bit of bourbon but not much. Alcohol is detectable through the nose. Mouthfeel is very heavy and sticky.
Overall, a really bad beer in my opinion. Like drinking overly sweet cough syrup. I really could only drink a couple ounces of this. Above and beyond cloying. There is just way too much going on in this beer and it is beyond sweet. I was really expecting a lot more.

Cranberry-like aroma. Nice strong alchohol flavor. Finishes a little too sour in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
this is an extremely version of a strong beer with high fruit notes. the malts and flavors are all fruits, including raisins, prunes, dates, watermelons and many others. the hops are strong but not the dominate flavor. it smooth s at the end. this a 10% beer, drink very slowly.

The aroma is funky with dark fruit and hops. The appearance is dark red brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall an interesting brew but not too good.

22oz bottle 6/2/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-39° in Snifter-Pours a very dark brown almost balck with a nice two finger tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, bourbon, malt, cherries, and some hops. Taste of sweetness, dried fruit, caramel, toffee, slight bourbon, and some funk. This full bodied brew is full of flavors and another IMO awesome brew from Shmaltz.

Draft. Beernutz. Black color. Thick texture. Molasses, black licorice. On the sweet side. Crazy flavors in this one. Glad I tried.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful dark brown with a one-finger dark tan head. Aroma is super rich molasses, heavy malts, fig paste, & port wine (noticeable alcohol). Taste is off the charts. Dried black figs & molasses up front, really heavy mouthfeel, and smooth chocolate malts for a decadent finish. Absolutely beautiful!
