3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at KØ09. Sherry aroma, seems a little oxidized. Clear dark brown colour. No head. Peppery flavour, very caramelly and extremely sweet. Way too sweet, and not balanced enough by the alcohol which is actually quite strong.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)

Pours deep red with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet. Some buttery character, raspberries and sweet caramel malts. Low carbonation, good oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit sticky sweet, light alcohol and a sweet raspberry finish. Good brew, but far too sweet for me.
