basement aromas, the aroma is an intense dark sweet sugary mess. Notes of raisins, sherry, candied cherries, and quite alot of candi sugar. The mouth feel is fine, and the carb is a tad low. Thw finish is low on the bitterness scale, with a mineral sweet raisin and dark candied plum blast. Quite interesting.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. pours a hazy brownish colour. Estery aroma with a sweetness, earthyness and sweet fruit. On the palate it proves drier than expected, has some tartness and flavours of malts and some plums. I find this one more balanced than expected and the raisin is integrated well enough. Interesting brew but not really I style that I seek out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle. Cola brown with just a film of head. Smells like what it is - raisins and Belgian yeast. Smells sweet. The flavour is not as sweet, and the raisins are a part of the whole, rather than the focal point of this beer. Not really anything else interesting going on, though. Not bad.

LCBO assignment. Pours cloudy golden body with dissipitating white head. Raisin aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Refreshing but more than a few ounces were tiring. A little more invigorating than say an Innis & Gunn.

A beautiful fruity beer. Quite sweet with a velvety texture. Almost like a desert wine of the beer world. Port and beer combined - what’s not to love!
