4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. I have been drinking this for years, first one i’ve had for awhile. Can’t forget how classic and defining for the style this is. Pours a clear chesnut brown with no head. Malt toffee and honey nose. Very smooth malt caramel flavors. Has a silk like palate and a clean finish with some burn. This a great winter beer!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark amber color, small white head. Hoppy nose. Aroma is hops, caramel, hints of coffee. Bitter sweet taste. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Full body, thick texture and flat carbonation. Bitter finish. I was thrilled about this one, didn’t expect to be THAT good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber, almost brown color, small white head. Medium to full body, very soft carbonation. Aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruits, raisins. Alcohol is noticeable. Like it’s 14%, not 8%. It’s sweet, but there’s also some strange fruity bitterness. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden brown with an off-white head. Aroma and taste are extremely bready and yeasty with a solid malt backbone and some prune-like taste and smell. Easy to see how this was a sustenance beer over Lent.

0,3 draught @ cafeteria in Bilbao. Nice brown colour with decent head. Very easy to drink. Taste is somewhat sweet and malty. Hides very well the high amount of alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice dark copper color with a small tannish head. Has a strong malty taste, pretty smooth. Don’t think I could drink to many of these with its 8% alcohol content...not a bad thing! :)
