3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 09/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Liquorland, Miramar.
Deep ruby with an oily, light tan, head that slowly vanishes. Big caramel nose that also comes through in the flavour, with dried fruits (both prunes and raisins) and a subtle woodiness. This beer hint’s of a good quality rum, with coke - in a good way. Very seet in the middle. Softly carbonated and medium bodied. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish suggest that there are more hops and roast malt than the nose or flavour suggest. Not everday drinking but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(n bottle) With the first pour, a lot of dade and molasses aroma. After the disapearense of the head, it´s hard to detect any sents. Small trases of fudge, wood and alcohol. Dark ruby red, clear and no head. the flavour is more simpel than the aroma; lots of goodie-goodie malts and that´s about it. maybe some liqurice and a very sweet/bitter finish, allmost too sweet.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A dark, reddy brown coloured beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with some berry fruit. The taste is also really sweet almost to the point of nastiness although there is some blackberry for late balance. However where is the alcohol? It’s pretty much unnoticeable.

Bottle from Budgen’s. Small head, spicy aroma, dark colour and a sweet, malty taste full of caramel and alcohol. Tell the truth I found this a bit overpowering. Wouldn’t want another for a bit.
