3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle via phaleslu. Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma had the fruit character I was expecting, dark fruits, a hint of cherry, caramel, and a decent amount of buttery toffee. The flavor is pretty sweet, buttery toffee, caramel, dark fruits with plums and cherry standing out. This is good, but not great; certainly a bit different.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a dark purple, almost like grape juice, with some bubbles for a head. Aroma of black currants, some Belgian candied sugar, and some lightly tart grapes. Flavour is lightly tart, with black currant, some mild candied sweetness, and grapes. Lightly tart and very dark fruity. ABV is no where to be detected. Good fruit beer - I’m just not a big fan of black currants.

Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis, courtesy of jcnielsen. Pours a fairly clear, deep brown appearance with a small brown head. Nutty, dark berry, currant, chewy toasty malty, light caramel aroma. Light cough syrupy, blackberry/currant, a touch tart, nutty, caramel flavor. Not exactly my thing but it’s kind of interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet dark fruit flavor and a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good after dinner with a cigar brew that exceeded my expectations.
