3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subtle aroma - got some apricot, orangle peel, but less of the spices - the anis promised by the bottle was virtually undetectable (to me, anyway). Fine looking beer, had a nice burnt orange translucence to it. Tastes of toffee and orange fruits, more mellow and subtle than I expected. Certainly quaffable. Definite yeast, the orange peel and coriander come through more as it warms. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost opaque dark brown color, with a copper hue, and storming activity. Slightly creamy light brown 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with a bit of lacing. Flavors of dark berries, cherries, oak, nuts, molasses, citrus, herbal spices. Thick fruity sweetness with sour earthy spices. Slick oily medium body with crispy carbonation. Strong finish, a little dry and sour like wine, lingering dark fruits, orange and clove, with a sour candy like feel of plums. Deliciously flavored, and a complex palate. Feels like Port and would serve this as an appetizer from all that sugar, thus not very fresh, yet warming. Overall excellent quality craft.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Watching The Sopranos 1x02. Some licorice. There is something adictive in this beer that have made me enjoy it more the more I drank it in both nose and mouth
