4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep mahogany-russet colour with a white head that attempted valiantly to stay on top of the body of the beer. Significant allspice, carob, chocolate, caramel and date aromas. It is a full, dark and heady aroma that puts you in mind of pannatone, treacle tart or similar dessert cakes by a fire with a cigar to follow. The flavour is all of that with a lovely almost peppery note on a sweetish body. This beer is balanced, elegant and indulges the drinker with a fondness for dessert. In the lager world this has to be at the top end of its nobility. It struck me just where I like to be tickled and will willingly have more of this beer. Gorgeous.

not crazy about the style, although i like them both seperately, but i gotta say, this was an unexpectedly unique beer. Obviously way heavier on the malt, but it’s pretty pleasant if not great."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma fresco de malte e grama. Um pouco de álcool e cravo. Torrado e caramelo.
Creme fino e claro. Líquido bastante turvo e castanho.
Álcool bem inserido no sabor. Densa e encorpada. Boa carbonatação. O caramelo é evidente e marcante, dando uma doçura inicial.
Retrogosto amargo, alcoolico e prolongado. Café.
No final achei ela muito extrema. Difícil de tomar mais que uma.
