Dark amber color. Aroma of caramel, fruit, almond, chocolate. Sweet taste, finishes with some bitterness. I really like it but the body is kinda thin for the style.

slowrunner77 (7485) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2015
sweet leaning - caramel raisins and toffee on the nose, with a nip of alcohol. Sweet and thick going down. Gotta be in the mood for this type of BW, but it’s nice.

Hopmaestro (719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2015
Aroma is thick sweetness, raisins and maybe some honey with a tad of alcohol? The taste is red berries, light malts, ripe sweet plums theat leads into a nice subtle bitterness. This is a sipper, and I had a nice session enjoying this one. It feels like meeting an old relative, and you just sit back and enjoy a story being telled from their childhood.
