4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Color is dark brown, with a beige head. The aromas of caramel and malt are dominant. Dark chocolate, plums and raisins can be distinguished in the taste, combined with a tender vinous touch. Although the beer has an ABV of 11,3%, it is very smooth to drink. Top class beer. Best beer I ever drank.

Reddish pour, little head. Aroma is big, currant, plum, raisins, apple and caramel. Taste is complex blend of plum, raisins and apple. Very nice mouth feel on this. All flavors mesh well. Really nicely built beer. Top of the list for style.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is caramel with an off-white head with solid retention but very little lacing. Nose is like plum pudding: steeped plums/prunes/raisins, spices, caramel, molasses, toasted bread and nuts. Taste-wise this stuff is just stupid smooth for 11%. Lots of sweet dark fruit and roasted grain and nuts, boozy, vinous, almost port-like warmth. Carbonation is lively and the finish is so deliciously, perfectly dry. The booze is present, noticeable, but never overpowering. Damn fine stuff.

NOTA DE CATA:
- Aspecto: Color amarillo cobrizo intenso, opacidad media.
- Aroma: Explosión de dulces de frutas tropicales (pera, plátano, mango), algunas características como los dulces que recuerdan a la goma de mascar y caramelos duros.
- Cuerpo/sabor: En boca, plátano y pera ligeramente picante, lúpulo floral, y maravillosamente rica, la presencia cálida del alcohol. Algunos sabores más se suman a la increíble complejidad de esta cerveza, como el chocolate e higo.
