Very dark, mahogany pour with ruby highlights and good head. Great esters and alcohols with raisins, apples and lots of christmas spice. Warming flavours with more apples and a winey grape note that finishes with some toastiness. Dry and medium on mouthfeel with high carb.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark pitted fruit and hints of perfume fill the nose, while an opaque bark brown pour with a short lived tan head provide minimal lacing. The palate is lushly comprised of dark fruit, candi sugar sweetness, caramel notes, and somewhat vicious. The body is moderately full and the carbocation is soft. Smooth, pleasingly round mouthfeel with a bit of fizziness along the side of the tongue in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Very brown color with reddish hue, thin off white head. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of overripe fruits, brown sugar, yeast, malts. Medium to high sweetness, no bitterness. OK for what it is, but definitely not my cup of tea.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost fully dark bodied, some red hue. Minimal head. Too sugary, and beside that, I could still feel the alcohol. So, must say alcohol is not hidden well. Medium to full body, creamy texture. I had better.
