3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours amber with orange highlights; the head is off-white and soapy. The aroma has notes of: pumpernickel bread, toffee, raisins, alcohol, and candy-sugar. The taste is ultra heavy sweet (a little unpleasant) that finishes with an alcohol warming; there are notes of: toffee, candy-sugar, dark breads, ruby-fruit jams, alcohol, slight liquorice, and tawny-port. The palate is full-bodied, viscous (cloying mouth-feel), slightly astringent (I assume from the alcohol), with a long finish. Overall, far too sweet, it isn’t balanced very well - a sort of guilty feeling whilst drinking this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tomada en Cerveceria Kraken ( Oviedo).
Potente cerveza austriaca de 14° que no defrauda.
Casi carente de espuma.
Buen aroma afrutado, ajerezado.
Al calentar sabe muy ajerezada, alicorada.
Merece la pena tomarla.

From bottle. Pours dark dark red with no real head. Aroma and taste of raisins and prunes and molasses. Taste is very sweet, rich, boozy. Smooth. Intense. Definitely worth sharing. Wonderful flavor, but the 11.2 ounce bottle could serve three people.

Clear amber color. Aroma of caramel, little alcohol. Very sweet taste, raisin, sugar, caramel. Oily mouthfeel, warming in stomach. It’s almost like drinking shots. Good, but not my kind of beer.
