3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of ElDesmadre. Clear amber brown color with medium frothy off-white head, fair lacing and flat visible carbonation. Aroma of tropical fruits, raisins, caramel and mild alcohol. Taste starts with rich and sweet caramel malt, follows by dried fruits’ acidity, mouthfeel is a bit spicy and astringent with long bitter aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. It’s a good one with well hidden alcohol, but I would rather taste it slightly more carbonated...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intense caramel, citrus and spruce. Definitely more spruce than citrus.
Ruby/amber pour with average head.
Tastes overly sweet and quite bitter (bitterness is masked by sweetness though), with lingering, sprucy aftertaste.
Kinda good, but not balanced.
