4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
