matty (349) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red color with a thick tan head. Aroma is of honey, raisins, yeast and some spice. Full body, lots of carbonation, the taste has a sweet characteristic along with some dried fruit and yeast. Finish is a little dry and just a slight tartness on the sides of the tongue after the swallow. Excellent!

mrjez (410) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market. Dark burgundy pour, mahogany up to the light, thick beige head, lots of carbonation. Pleasing well-melded aroma, hints of Belgian yeast, spice, dark fruits, licorice. Subtle flavours of plum and fig, yeast notes, a little booze and a nice spicy finish. Fluffy upfront feel, medium-body, noticeable sweetness and a dry finish. As it warms the licorice pops nicely.

polo_marco (302) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Smells of cherry and burbon some sweet Orange peel and rustic finish. Super dark bergondy color with large pillows off white head. Taste is quite complex, with sweet malts starting things off then tons of corriander taste with a bit of Orange peel flavor, some booziness nice smooth finish. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Great beer need to try more from you guys. Nice work!
