4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of after4ever and shared with after4ever and bitbucket. Pours deep somewhat opaque amber with frothy light tan head. The aroma is really fruity with apples, pears, plums, sweet raisins, brown sugar and coriander. The flavor starts sweet with brown sugar and then pears, apples, plums and then raisins appear. As the fruit forward flavors fade some coriander spice shows up to add further depth as well as roasty malts and mild tannins. It ends with a lingering dark fruitiness of prunes, raisins and dates as well as mild tart tannins. No sense at all of the ABV in the nose or taste.

Even after all the christmas brews, this one was still powerfull. Absolutly amazing vinouse nose of alchohol tons of begian yeast transformed into darkfruits, some brown sugar and caramel aswell. Bubbling texture and a nice intense mouthfull with sweet fruity notes and a very plesant warming alchohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Nice and promising in the appearance. Taste with a hint of a mixture of dadels, figs and raisins therefore rather sweet. Yeast taste is coming through loud and clear as well as the alcohol burden. A bit too much gas. Moderate quadrupel!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For me this one seemed like it was going to be great and then fell down. Pours mahogany with a bit of a small tan head. The aroma has buttermilk biscuits, dense semi-sweet toffee, vanilla and cream - very nice. It has a medium body that is on the sharp side. The taste begins with thick alcoholic malt, some acidity and lots of burn ~ this was nothing like the aroma. The finish has more burn and is on the medicinal side.
