Wowsers!! 14%ABV!! The alcohol doesn’t hide from you. It’s potent! Tastes sweet with hints of apricot and raisin. Would fit well as a dessert beer but for a daily drinker I’d have to say nay.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 2003. Poured a claer copper color. Big sweet malt aroma and flavor. Dark fruits, cherry, and brown sugar. Alcohol doesn’t hide from you. Full bodied thick and chewy.

Shiny amber, no head. Very malty aroma, with nutty notes and also figs and prune. Flavor is malty as well, alcohol is there of course and makes the beer malty and sweet. Very complex to be a lager...

OK, note to self, this is the desert beer for any first date... It has a sweet pancake-syrup like flavor with a hint of carmel, toffee, vanilla, and rum raisin?? I don’t know. I think the alcohol has my taste buds hallucinating.

Candy malt aroma. Flavor obviously includes stong hints of alcohol, especially in finish. Syrupy sweetness with a very full mouthfeel. Definitly enjoyed this one.

(Bottle, 2004 vintage) Orange coloured, white head, fastly disappearing. Malty nose, notes of fruits (apricot), fruit brandy. Very similar to a fine dessert wine. Sweet taste, fruity,malty, honey character. Very full bodied, sweet alcoholish finish. Try it with/as a dessert...

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with a medium white head. Nice aroma of caramel, toffee and vanilla. Violently sweet. Has strong primary notes of molasses/brown sugar, caramel, bread and toffee then gives way to dark fruits and cherries. Alcohol content is very much present. Very full and round with medium carbonation. No lacing, decent head retention. I couldn’t finish even half of this beer, much too sweet for me.
