3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very classic bottle. Pours reddish brown with a half inch tan head. Malty, bready taste with a fizzy mouthfeel. A little sweetness in it as well. Enjoyable, but a little pricey.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2007 Malty and sweet, rich taste, very nice on the palate, and the flavor develops in your mouth. The label is a classic - but unfortunately, the beer is not.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nuts, caramel, malt, and brown sugar. That is the appearance, aroma, and flavor. Solidly blended and syrupy with a nice alcohol content. The finish is very smooth and very soft.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nutty, full of flavour, lots of good stuff packed into the bottle. Raisins, prunes, apricots, burned sugar. A little fizz that covers the alcohol warming. Great stuff!

Murky swamp water brown look. Caramelly, nutty, malt aroma. Pretty docile, malt and roasted nut flavor. Smooth, mellow and good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark reddish brown with a thin (but initially very active) whitish head. Lots of malt and some fruits in the nose, though a bit weak. Flavors of dried fruits and malt with a bit of breadyness in the finish. I thought the flavor hid the alcohol well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a reddish amber with a thin light orange tan head. Aroma like a dry red wine with some pleasant sourness. Taste is treacle-like sweet malt, licorice, dark fruit, and earthy tones. This is complex and interesting stuff! Some alcohol warmth after the swallow and on my cheeks. Well balanced.

a ruby brown with thin tan head. sweet fruity aroma (plums?) full thick body. tastes of rich toffee with a light bitter chocolate, with a fruity undertone of oranges and raisins and an alcohol finish. a little on the thicker sweeter side than i like, but its
