3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours a near clear deep amber with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of cinnamon and chillies with some backing sweet grains and bourbon. Flavor is again heavily spiced with some raisins and sweet grains backed by bourbon. Spice became overwhelming.

Amazing that I didn?t know what was being served and the first thing I said was how much raisin flavor there is. Sweet sugary smell deep ripe almost spoiled fruit scent. Slight heat from chili but not very harsh. Light spices for cinnamon, but very good all around. Bourbon is done correctly. Not overt the top, just a nice touch. Bottle

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cork and caged 12,7oz bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip on 15th May 2015. Ruby hints around the edges of this dark forbidding brew, on top a huge tanned foam blanket. The aroma is rum soaked raisins covered in milk chocolate. The taste has chillies to give a bite to the chocolate raisins and rum from the nose. Rich, smooth yet the chillies add an extra dimension along with the cinnamon sticks which gave another twist to the tail of the brew. Appealed to my sweet tooth and love of hot, spicy food: a very interesting and different beer, glad I bit the bullet and paid the extra dosh for a truly world class beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy creme colored head. Strong aroma of raisin over medium carbonation. Raisin, coconut with a touch of spice that provides some heat. A bit thin.
