3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber with a head that stays till the finish, and spots of lace. The aroma is appealing - a clean malt with dried fruit overtones. The taste is full roasted caramel malt with dried prunes and raisens. This grows to a carbonated bitter finish that is most satisfying. A big brew...sipping only, and deceptively strong. Recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle @ The Rover. Pours very hazy dark reddish brown with a very small nougat head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is very sweet and malty with sweet dark bread, pears in cognac, alcohol, caramel, burnt sugar, wood, oatmeal cookies, golden syrup, biscuits and hints of acetone. Taste is sweet, malty and tiny fruity with sweet dark bread, biscuits, golden syrup, wood, vanilla fudge, pears, apples, alcohol, caramel and hints of resins and cookie dough. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet with caramel, wood, vanilla fudge, alcohol, pears and cookie dough. Quite nice...

Wow, what a pretty looking beer. Not much of a head, but a nice maple color. For lack of a better word, it had a woody taste. Smooth finish, and definitely a beer I would have again

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle--nice deep copper color with a small head that disapates. Alcohol is the most dominate aroma with plenty of yeast and bread. Bread and caramel are the main components of taste, with a thick syrupy, feel. Almost there, but not quite. Produce place, 2.49.

0,35 flaske på Liberty of the Seas: en fantastisk overraskelse å finne et slikt stjerneøl på en båt! Herlig aroma som følges opp av en skikkelig munnfull mørk karamell/sjokolade/sirup. Passe humlet, nesten som en god belgisk dubbel. Strålende.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a dark amber with a ruby hue and a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Lots of caramel and sugar. Taste is medium sweet. Caramel and sugar with a bit of dark fruit. Alcohol with raisins and orange. Medium bodied with a sticky and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. Now I’m wishing I would have bought the whole 4-pack instead of just the single with the upcharge.

Dark amber with a thick white head. The nose and palate are loaded with caramel. Some raisin on the back of the palate adds an extra dimension which lingers through the finish.

Bottle. Raisin malt and alcohol aroma. Hazy orange-brown color with moderate head. Sweet raisin-orange bready malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Strong alcohol finish. Very good - way better than their last effort.
