Pours a dark caramel color with no head, no real sign of carbonation. Very fruity and sweet aroma. Allows some light thru the glass. taste isof sweet malt and fruits. Fruity sweet taste with that alcohol warmth in the back of your mouth and throat. nice mouth feel. Wish I had two so I could set one back till 2017!

wyzzywyz22 (1945) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, Domus Birrae, Roma. Shared with Slothez, Superbowl session. Poured a deep dark reddy brown with a small fading beige head. Beak had notes of dark bread, malts, brown sugar booze and dark fruits. Taste was sweet malts, dark fruits and booze. Thinnish mouthfeel with limited carbonation. Pretty forgettable overall and the inflated price made it all the more disappointing. Expected more.

ClubGonzo (3951) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Tap sample at CBC 2014. Dark clear red-hued amber body, medium creamy off-white head, looking great. Nose is sweet deep caramel tones, vanilla, honey, mild burnt sugar notes and hints of muscovado sugar and red berries. Taste is sweet berry-like caramel tones, vanilla, burnt sugar and hints of honey and melon. Full body, medium carbonation. Quite sweet, but for a sweet (beer) tooth like me this is aaall right. :-)

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. En söt maltbomb med väl integrerad alkohol, men också förvånande frisk med bäriga smaker. Stor kropp, sirap, honung, röda söta bär och nypon/nyponsoppa. Bra balans och inte överdrivet söt. Riktigt god.
