3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma is of yeast and fruit. Flavor is similar but also with caramel and spice. Doesn’t have much of an alcohol burn that I would expect from something that tastes like this. I read a review that said it was "complex, yet boring". That’s so completely apt. This was 5 bucks for a bottle, so I’ve got to say there’s no way I’ll be grabbing this again all things considered. But it does have a solid amount of alcohol (even if it could’ve been more)! And I still say it’s actually very, very good! I just feel like maybe there was some lost potential here, should’ve been a much bigger beer. 9% abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 11.08.2016
Hazy bronze body, holds a small creamy beige head.
Nose quite rich - burnt caramels, dark candy sugar, nuts, raisins, sultanas, dates, touch of cocoa, sweet spice.
Full body, richness builds, slightly syrupy, low carbonation somewhat creamy, velvety.
Has a bitter-sweet thing going on the palate - lots of rich dark candy sugar with earthy undertones, dried fruits in abundance, woody sweet nutmeg clovey spice cuts through, some leafy hop and associated bitterness in the works. Long finish, plenty of warmth.
A winter warmer for sure.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Coloração entre marrom e vinho, espuma de fácil formação e bastante duradoura, carbonatação visível e "viva" no copo. Aroma adocicado, uva passa, framboesa, mas um leve toque de vinagre que diminuiu um pouco com o tempo (talvez esteja vencida, não foi possível ver a data no rotulo). Paladar trás novamente frutas escuras, corpo licoroso, carbonatação média, álcool aparente um pouco acima do desejável. Aftertaste adocicado e persistente, mas mediano em qualidade. Pretendo experimentar novamente porque tem sinais de estar fora do padrão.
