28th December 2009
Dark brown beer, light just passes through. Softish palate, semi dry. Sublte toffee malt nose. A strange beer this - creamy malt, a dash of coffee, licorice, aniseed alcohol. A little marmalade hop bitterness. Finishes soft and dry. Nice components but disjointed. Nontheless end up a decent brew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear copper color with very little in terms of a head.
S: The smell is quite interesting. There’s a bunch of dark fruits: figs and raisins, for the most part. There’s also an aroma of maple syrup and a fair amount of alcohol.
T: The figs and raisins are present on the palate as well. The maple syrup is an underlying flavor that adds nice dimension to the beer, but also a bit too much sweetness. The alcohol is present, but the beer is not as hot as some might lead you to believe.
M: The body is full and the beer is smooth and creamy on the tongue.
D: This was an interesting beer. It’s good, but I think my taste of it might be enough. I will hold on to my bottle of it and see how it does with some age on it.
