A really good beer with lots of flavor and aroma. The aftertaste is also wonderful and are there long.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 500 ml. bottle marked 2310. I like the label. The pour is a rather milky medium amber-copper that is difficult to see through. It has a short-lived mocha head. The aroma is sweet with brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and bubblegum. The body is smooth and medium. While the aroma seems to be sweet the taste tends to be bitter with a lingering finish. Not bad at all.

Bottle a few years ago...sorry, I just want the tick. Pretty good beer, but I’m not rushing out to buy more.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a translucent dark amber colour with a half-finger foamy head that diminished quickly and left poor lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Taste of sweet caramel malt but slightly burnt and with a slightly acidic after-taste. Medium body. Moderately long slightly burnt, slightly bitter and dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium beige head. Clear deep amber body with carbonation. Perfumy caramelly malt aroma with spicy cocos and toffee notes. Sweet, and faintly dry, perfumy caramelly taste with smoke and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel, slightly slick. Dryish roasty caramel aftertaste with dandelion notes. It’s OK, but nothing special. (0.5l bottle, Alko Arkadia, Helsinki.)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Produces up all hazy with a bad case of the floaties. Deep, ruddy chestnut with fine carbonation and a prevalent sticky off-white cap. There is a mellowing note of fruit mince pie in the aroma, bready, baked with a pronounced amount of diacetyl and dates in syrup. Creamy though not full in palate. Bitter, burnt raisins dominate; some toffee, toasted bread, unleavened dough; might well be breakfast aside the sweet, sweet overpowering toffee and sugar note that begins and ends it. Not much here. Not enough savoury goodness to save it! (50cL, BBE 03/13, Liquor Baron’s Connolly)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, some foam staying on the edges. Taste of alcohol is apparent, otherwise very sweet with caramel, slightly burnt and bitter aftertaste. Pretty nice, but would be unable to drink this several bottles in a row.
