3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light hazy copper with a medium sized diminishing bubbly white head. Caramel and alcohol nose. Oxidized, sugar/syrup, honey, light fruity, light wood. Taste is close to heavy sweet and light/medium bitter. Full body, oily/syrupy texture, near flat carbonation. Warming alcohol, that stings a bit without being boozy. Good strong stuff and pretty much what I hoped for.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375 ml). Clear golden/orange with a light ring of white foam that is quickly disappearing and minimal lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, caramel, honey, wood and grass/floral notes. Taste is boozy with honey, caramel, wood, almost no fruits in this one compared to the other from the series. Warming/burning finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. This one is probably the most balanced from the series even if it’s still too boozy for my liking. Nice sipper.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Pour is again golden (the light toasted version are a little lighter than their medium toasted counterpart but not by much) with not much head but good lacing anyway. Floating sugar crystals (this is what I think they are). Aroma is again really full of hot alcohol but this one had some green notes to it (not sure where it might be coming from) to it. Taste is really sweet and boozy with some nice brown sugar and maple sugar flavors. Mouthfeel is again syrupy. I liked this one better than the Tronçais versions we had just before.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle tasted alongside the other 5 at Beergeek. This was slightly less impressive than the others. It has a slightly overwrought woodiness to it. It has plenty of character with overripe fruit and rampant booze. Lots going on.
