Pours a clear ruby color with an aroma of dark fruit, caramel and toffee. Lots of sweet malt with vanilla, caramel, and dark fruit dominant. A touch hot, but just enough to warm your insides. Has aged very well Great beer!

650ml bottle from trade. Pours a deep, cloudy ruby with thin off white head. Aroma is fruity malt, oak, slightly sweet. Flavour is of dark fruit, caramel, creme brulee, and brown sugar. A big, sweet, complex brew.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thinning almond head. Aroma is sweet oaky butterscotch, caramel. Taste is also sweet creme brule, oak notes and caramel. Alcohol stings on the tongue but also caresses, nice after dinner sipper.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2011
The aroma is quite strong and nice with, toffee, caramel, oak, hops, and fruit. The appearance is dark amber/brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with an unpleasant metallic quality. The palate is smooth, Overall not bad but it has problems.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. An unclear, dark amber beer with a finger-thick, off-white to beige head. Caramel and sugary dried fruits on the nose, maybe not sounding too good, which it is, but it is a bit boring. The flavor has a meaty intro, with caramel, raisins and some alcohol following. Warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a lasting dried fruits finish. A quite nice one, and though it might seem from my rating that I enjoyed aroma and flavor equally, I didn’t. The aroma is sort of boring or one dimensional, the flavor is more complex and in fact really good. Anyway, a nice beer. 110204

Clear red - brown beer. Very soft palate. Sweet creamy buttery toffee and caramel. Some tangy sweet fruit coming through before the end which is soft and creamy with a trace of more bittering toffee. Enjoyed this but really quite sweet. A dessert beer?

joeneugs (3240) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours dark amber with a khaki head. The aroma has some bourbon, nuts, alcohol, vanilla and caramel. The caramel, vanilla, and solvent notes stand out. The flavor is very harsh with solvent and some nicer notes of raisins, caramel, vanilla and wood. The woody tones are sadly covered by the overpowering alcoholic notes. Gets a bit soapy and chemical like as it warms.
