3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE. (not corked - 9.4%) Poured red to brown with a quick disappearing off white head. Nose is intriguing, got a sherry boozy smell & sweet toffee. Caramel malt & toffee upfront that goes away relatively quickly turning into spices & malt, finishes with a bite almost like a spirit.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep, dark red-brown pour with off-white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of sweet fruits and malt, translate well into the flavor with some alcohol, and as some have mentioned - a bit of red wine, especially on the finish which is dry. Tasty stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich mahogany with a finger of head. Nose is figs, raisin, Belgian yeast, a bit red winey. Taste is very dark fruity, tons of fig, raisins, bit of spicy yeast character on the finish, effervescent. Medium to full body. It's borderline too sweet, but treads the line. Very good.
