3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium brown with a small (less than 1 finger) light brown frothy head that did not have the greatest retention but was able to produce a somewhat fair lacing.
The aroma was very malty of a dark roasted bread malt and a sweet leathery yeast with a hint of caramel, plums and a moderate alcohol odor.
The taste was sweet and malty with a hint of caramel and toffee from the onset and then had a slight medicine flavor with a strong plum wine presence that was quite boozy at the end. The flavor lasted an average time on the palate but left you with a strong alcohol warming feel that lasted a bit longer.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a watery texture that was slightly dry at the finish, with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a sweet enticing brew, with a strong alcohol flavor that will most definitely rock your world if you drank too much.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coloração ambar escura, quase marrom, turva. Espuma bege, se desfez rapidamente no copo. Aroma misto de caramelo, pinho, levemente amadeirado. Paladar com dulçor médio, trouxe notas de gramínea, um sabor ainda novo para mim em uma cerveja . Corpo médio, na minha percepção intensificado pelo teor alcoólico. Aftertaste trás um leve amargor, mas o dulçor se destaca. Um sabor bem diferente do que já havia provado, agradável!
