3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium copper brown with a yellowish-amber hue and a large (2-3 finger) cream colored frothy head that mostly diminished down to a very small amount of residue with a tiny collar, which produced some poor lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (figs and plums), and was a bit nutty.
Taste was sweet and very malty with a big note of caramel in the beginning and ended a tad bitter and mildly sweet with a strong note of dark fruit and a mild alcohol tinge. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice sweet fruity taste left behind along with a nice mild alcohol warming sensation.
Mouthfeel was a bit under medium in body and dry yet a tiny bit syrupy in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a very impressive beer with a really good blending of malts, fruit and sweetness which made this a wonderful tasting experience...

Robe ambrée. Nez élégant sur des notes d’agrumes, de malt, de caramel, pointe de vanille. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, belle onctuosité, bulle crémeuse et finale ample et équilibrée. Une bière puissante mais qui garde de l’élégance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Muddy brown pour with thin head, quite low carbonation. Caramel, bread and sweet dried fruit aromas. Taste is caramel, bready, doughy, at first, ends more like a sweetish pretzel. Sweetness cuts through a little booze at the end

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, dark brown colour and small tan lacing. Aroma is not that strong, I get mostly malts, some toffee and... rye? Taste is really nice and rich, almost sweet at first, then ends with a slightly bitter and dry finish. Slick, a bit oily mouthfeel, light carbonation, tiny bubbles. Well-balanced, rich and flavourful beer, just the way I like it.

Pours red-brown with a light head. Smells of sweet Caramel and raisin. Tastes fruity particularly raisins with the alcohol only apparent as a warming aftertaste.

Cor vermelha-acobreada, límpida, espuma branca de boa formação. Aroma de caramelo, malte tostado, pão. Sabor é doce, maltado e caramelado, que perdura na boca por um bom tempo, amargor muito leve e levíssimo frutado. Possui bom corpo, de médio pra cima, bem complexa. Possui uma drinkabilidade alta, com boa sensação de aquecimento do álcool

Soooo smooth! Paid a reasonable price of around 3 bucks for this. I'm glad I did so tasty but I drank other beers. Before hand either way still great!
