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.

This was a much better beer that I was expecting, loads and loads of malts, caramel, with a bit of smoakyness and vanilla.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, light peat, fig/date fruity character, the nose was weaker, some earthy bitterness, this missed the mark in my opinion.
