2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
deep red pour with non existent head. Aroma: faint (caramel, molasses). Taste: cloying sweet caramel with burnt notes, malty backbone, vinous, quite boozy. Mild plasticy bitterness in the aftertaste fails to balance the syrupy mouthfeel

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Not as dark as expected: clear, dark brown colour with a beige and fluffy foamy head. Sweet and slightly roasted malty aroma with a subtle note of dried fruits, as well as traces of chocolate and marzipan. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a quite soft carbonation. Slightly roasted malty taste with dried fruity and nutty notes, backed by a touch of sweet chocolate and molasses; rather sweet and mildly roasted malty finish with a slightly vinous fruity touch. A tad sweet but likeable. 20.IV.11

Bottle: Clear, deep amber coloured, stable medium-sized tanned head; dark dried fruits in the moderate sweet dark-malty and nutty nose; moderate to solid sweet flavour, medium bodied, sticky; nutty-caramelly finish with a whiff of nearly not detectable bitternesss in the aftertaste. Way too sweet for me.........
