4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Best B4 10.09.07,33cl.:
Saturated brown color. Giant pillowy head with no signs of retreat. Smell of sloe gin and Concorde grapes with a hint of vinegar. Scent of the produce dept. A touch of brewed green tea and sour milk. Faint pineapple aroma. Chocolate and supple leather flavors joined with melon and berries. Cantaloupe joining in. Pineapple flavor? Cappuccino froth lace work. Great malt flavors. Creamy feel on the tongue transforms into a subtle alcohol bite. Chocolate and fruit flavors perk-o-late into the sinus. Front of the tongue left dry with every sip. Long dry finish. Wish it was 3/4L.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy, orangey dark amber with large, dense tan head that reduces very slowly but eventually leaves skim rather than lacing.
Despite the large head, the aroma is enormous: nuts, figs, rum, malt. You don’t have to drink this beer to enjoy it, just drink it in. The taste builds on the nose, with chocolate, chestnuts, dates, pepper, bread, raisins, oak, vanilla.
The carbonation adds a creaminess that serves to clear these various notes, letting them stand out in turn and leads to almost neutral yet warm finish, less dense and sweet than its monumental sibling, number 10.
The 9.2 ABV suggests care should be taken, though it is not debilitating. But this is built to top off a meal, a liquid dessert, and makes a great finish to an evening.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle, pours a cloudy chestnut brown. Interesting nose; rum, chocolate, figs, dates, chestnut puree. Taste is incredible and difficult to describe without including finish. Briefly sweet and deeply malty but the carbonation lifts this away almost instantly, then a gentle wave of warmth slowly comes in bringing back the flavours of chocolate, mild oak, some nuttiness, sweet sticky fruit- dates, raisins, figs. Superb.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a nice looking beige colored head. Aroma of yeast and cellar at first, some more pleasant notes of dark fruits and some grapes. Taste is better than the aroma. Sweet start, a bit chocolatey with medium bitterness following it. A bit more creamy. Not my favourite style in general.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel, raisin, drop, chocolate, fruity.
Darkish brown, starts with a huge off-white head and ends with a nice steady one.
Caramel, raisin, drop, chocolate, fruity in the end. Sweet from beginning till end, but still has a bitter taste woven in it.
The taste is slightly more sweet and softer than that of the darker 10, but still very good!
