3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby, almost black color, minimal beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins, coffee and hint of port wine. Medium sour sweet taste of caramel, dry fruits, chocolate and spices with a bit alcoholic gentle bitter finish. Nice, complex and interesting warming ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown with medium head. The beer has a strong dried and cooked dark fruit aroma with a bit smoke, bubblegum, honey and cake. Flavor is quite the same. Well balanced and the alcohol seam to be well hidden. Soft carbonation and medium density but oily mouth feel. Aftertaste is spicy with dried plum sourness. Good one.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: chocolate, roasted nuts, burnt caramel
Taste: medium bitter, little sweet
Palate: thin, but quite a mouthful
Overall: really good ale with its own character somewhere between a belgian double, a stout and a porter.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wow, this is aggressive. 330ml bottle pours deep ruby brown with small head that soon dissipates. Nose is super non representative, pretty mild with some roasted chestnut, liquorice and unidentified sweets. Definitely has a bit of Roche about it on the nose. Tons of liquorice on the taste and shedloads of booze. After the taste buds recover there is some lingering roasted malty sweetness on the finish. Bonkers

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in colour with minimal head. Aroma is sweet, caramel malt to the fore and noticeable alcohol not unlike a sticky dessert wine.
Taste is similar with a sweet and slightly cloying mouthfeel, little bitterness and some alcohol warmth.
