3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright deep orangish color. Very sweet nose with raisins, caramel, biscuity doughy notes, and a nice deep port like character accent the alcohol on the nose. Very complex deep flavor, like that of a super amped up lager with hints of green apple, caramel, a light grassy earthiness, and a good dose of alsohol that shines in the finish. Very nice beer, but definately a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of plums, apples, candi sugar, and alcohol. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a minimal white head that quickly fades to a fine ring along the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet apple with light caramel and a hint of candi sugar. Big alcohol finish in flavor and warmth with the slightest hint of floral bitterness. There is a slight burn in the back of the throat. Full-bodied with a syrupy texture. Not bad, but definitely needs some time to sit.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting. Like a dessert wine pressed out of malt-liquor. That sounds bad, itís not that awful. The nose is full of...booze and a some white peach fruit. Little lacing, not much carbonation. The entry in sweet, the palate attempts to dry out with help from the booze, but puts on weight and goes back to dessert. This would be perfect with some of the stronger, stinkier aged cheeses in fact. This beer needs time, period. The booze should settle and the malt should dry out a little bit. All in All balanced, and will get some extra points for what it may become.

Well my friends, this is hardly beer right now. The fruity/bready alcoholic nose, the sweet sweetness of the flavor and the warm tingling warming tingle that hangs around for quite a while: Definite indicators of a young buck of a malt liquor. Interesting, but somewhat one-dimensional and harsh right now.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber-orange colour with a big short lasting head. Sweet siruppy and fruity aroma with plenty of alcohol. Good sticky mouthfeel. The flavour is quite sweet but pleasant with a good bitterness, caramel, toasted malt, dark fruits and alcohol. Quite sweet bit stingy alco finish. Great brew indeed! A good nighty night beer bekausche it maiks U feeel goo-raitt...and rate more beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Sweetish alcoholic aroma with an edge of almonds. Very solid body with sweet, malty accents - a little low in carbonation. Again these almond notes. The finish is extremely alcoholic but this still manages to come out as a very pleasant beer. 201107
