4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 7.5%. Mildly bready aroma, I do not get any roasted notes or the like. Black colour, big stable light brown head. The flavour is a lot more powerful than the aroma. Slightly sweet liquorice flavour, turning more bitter before going liquoricy again. Good, sticky mouthfeel. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 Bottled
Black opaque color. Small lightly tanned head vanishing quickly. Good deal of carbonation. Aroma is sweet caramel and thin coffee. Taste is sweet prunes and some roasted malt. Finishes bitter with some hops and alcohol gives warming feeling. Certainly a winter beer! (6/4/7/3/14 3.4)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thank you, oh6gdx]
Pours almost black with just some red edges. A big, frothy, off-white head - fine duration. Very pleasant sweet maltiness, some chocolate and roasted malts. Medium carbonation, super mouthfeel - good dryness. Flavour starts with just a tad of metal, but afterwards there are super fine roasted malts, dry hops, chocolate. Super fantastic long dry aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Great aromas of plum and raisin - aka dark fruits. Brownish mahogany color with a beige/tan head that flattened and ringed rapidly. Full bodied with mild, very creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely those dark fruits, and it calls to mind Old Peculier, but on roids. It’s sweet, and there’s some toasted malt and hop to balance that, but "on balance" the taste and the finish is sweet. But it is wonderful in the mouth. The fruit is just fantastic. Some chocolate notes show up in the finish.
