3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper/light brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of bread crusts, dark fruit (raisins, plums), alcohol and a little spice. Flavor features a lot of plumb and raisin, a brown sugar sweetness, some Munich-like malt flavors, warming alcohol and some light perfumy notes. Tasty but a little on the sweet side.

Draft at Fire works Leesburg. 2009 vintage. Pours brown with half an inch of thick brown foam. Lots of yeast bits. Chunky and chewy mouthfeel a bit like a beer slushie. Lots of malty sweetness and yeastiness on the tongue. Definitely an after after dinner beer.

Although apparently it is a good beer with a nice colour, good aroma and lovely head, it just turns out to taste like medicine with too much alcohol. I am not sure if I like it or not...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Ooh, I like this one! Dark reddy brown body with a small tan head. It is quite cloudy. A yeasty aroma with chocolate, dark fruit, and a hit of burnt sugar. Malty taste, with liquorice and rich fruits coming through. A big hit of alcohol warmth makes this a great winter comfort beer. Really nice, and with the sweetness, very dangerous.

May 2012 - Sweet, syrupy, liquer taste. Molasses. Bitter sharpness. Slight banana in the late aftertaste. One of the sweetest beers I’ve had. Nice.

Color is black with reddish glares. Head is small, brown, vanishes quickly and leaves a weak film. Aroma is very powerful: licorice, caramel and black fruits. Palate is nicely alcoholic, not very strong, oily. Taste is very sweet, but also deep and complex. Vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, clack sugar and cola, maybe.
