Shark_Pants (449) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2015
Deep cola colour with inch high aerated beige head. Aromas of plums, dates, currants, figs, toffee and spices abound. The taste is expectedly sweet - candi sugar, the dark fruits and spices are all there. Delicate light hoppiness in the finish that stops it being cloying. Nice full body and chewy. Great winter sipper.

UXO (811) - CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Pours cloudy medium amber with two fingers of rocky tan head, excellent retention and good lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel, dark stone fruit, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, orange peel, mild spice. (8/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Full bodied, low carbonation and creamy texture, mildly boozy finish. (4/5) Really mild booziness, with the alcohol perhaps contributing to the overall sweetness, but otherwise present only as a mild warming. Pleasant enough, and a fairly standard BSDA - to the extent that there’s such a thing as a “standard” BSDA - but hellaciously expensive for what it is. Good? Yep. Great? Mmmm… maybe, maybe not. Worth the price? Probably not. (16/20)

(Bottle). Beautiful aroma of yeast, light malt, caramel, cola and mellow spices. Unfiltered dark brown complexion with lingering tan head. Complex flavors include cola, caramel, Belgian malt and subtle hop balance. Excellent. Well crafted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
