Quite nice. Not as full of flavour as I expected, but a lovely rounded medium body. Some vanilla oak. A hint of Christmas pudding. Finishes clean and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Bottle @ home poured clear golden brown with a white head. Medium bitterness with low to average carbonation and full bodied mouth-feel. Malt and vanilla in taste with caramel overtones. I had it in the fridge before opening and it was way better after sitting for a while to warm up and open up red wine-style

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Butterscotch/carmel/toffee aroma with some dusty-mineral maybe slight herbal but skunky aroma.
Taste is same as aroma but with some dry vannilla oak/light bourbon? notes. Fairly sweet,but has some mild hop and danky-skunk bittering to back it .Some candy/cotton candy/skunk grass.Pretty good really.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Malty and nutty aroma. Small stable white head. The flavour is nutty and chalky with some alcohol bitterness. It is as if there is a bit too much alcohol for the style, but it is a good beer nevertheless.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with rather stable off-white head. clear aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Pleasant, balanced, sweet taste of malt and caramel, offset by a bitter hoppy note. Dry aftertaste. A decent thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sickly sweet, deep amber ale with a fine white head. Heavy & thick with dark fruit overtones, molasses, prunes & dates. Well balanced hop bite with toffee & vanilla, phenolic, a bit cloying but drinkable, slowly.
