3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 330ml bottle with a best before end of March 2016 date and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a clear dark reddish copper with a slightly less than one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving some nice lacing. Aromas are strong vanilla, raisins and oak with hints of toffee, caramel and rum. Taste was sweet-ish rum and plum with a nice long vanilla, oak, coconut finish. There was also some hints of caramel and butterscotch in between. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Overall, this was nice and interesting albeit a bit vanilla heavy. I would not categorise this as an everyday drink but it’s something I wouldn’t mind trying every now and then.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogany body, small white head. Aroma has huge sugary butterness, rum ia present and some caramel behind the first scent. Flavour turns nutty and buttery with rum notes all over. Underlying there is layer of fruitiness. Warming and really much different things going on in the beer. Not sure if I like em all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A quid, from the local offy. Clear, dark copper colour. Messy, thin, pale tan head. Toffee malts. Mint rock. Vine fruits. Taste is sugary sweet. Some nasty, burnt sugar bitterness. Claggy mouthfeel. Artificial sweetener on the finish. Interesting to note the rating disparity with these beers. I’m in the, "I’m glad I only paid a quid" category.
