3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught at Festival der Bierkulturen 2010, Köln) Hazy, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Toast-malty aroma with notes of sweet liquorice and a whiff of smoke and hops. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Hearty malt-character with moderate to subtle notes of dried fruits; sweet and slightly hop- and roasty bitter finish with present notes of alcohol. Nevertheless a well-balanced brew. 16.V.10

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dirty chestnut brown with a small off white head. Decent lacing left. Smells of over ripe dark fruits and bitter coffee - lots of plums, raisins and cherries. A slight sweetness throughout. Taste comes across as burnt and bitter coffee beans with a lingering sweetness of ripened plum and raisins. Brown sugar notes in there as well. A long, dry bitterness left on the palate. Pretty average

375ml bottle, thanks lusikka
Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, with hints of raisin, exotic fruits and alcohol. Taste is caramely sweet with notes of toffee, exotic fruits and malts. Finish is sweet, smooth and carbonated. Full bodied. Quite good, but I’m not a fan of these kind of overly sweet dessert beers.
