Small dirty-cream head over clear copper-amber beer. Superb nose as from old, sweet wine, very vinous, vanilla. Sweet, brandy, vanilla, vanillabeans, coffeemilk, alcohol-preserved fruit, winecasks. Very complex, yet balanced flavourprofile. Better carbonated than most such ales, slick, alcoholwarming. Spectacular nose. Beer, however, is more sweet than suspected.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
37.5cl bottle pours murky brown with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma delivers dark fruity esters like raisins and prunes as well as some molasses, a touch of caramel and then a mild oak to vanilla to boozy heat sort of sensation is noticed at the end of the pull. The taste is rich with robust notes of brown sugar coated prunes and raisins. It quickly picks up additional notes of sweet vanilla, molasses, a touch of oak wood as well as some oak spiciness. Nice quad.
