3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At Get real NY. The aroma is a nice combination of fruit and bread. The appearance is deeep brown, light tan head. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma. Fruity and bready to be sure, but a taste of meetal as well. The finish was actually a little dry, and the booze is felt. Medium/thick in body. This beer is all over the map. Solid aroma, ok in taste, decent body, weird finish. Good overall.

Pours a mahogany colour with a beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, solvent and some malts. Flavour of raisins, sweet dried fruits, bready malts, wood and alcohol. Dry, sticky mouthfeel without carbonation. Warming finish of alcohol, raisins and some wood. Needs aging as the alcohol comes through way too much.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 12/2013
Sweetish aroma has some solvent and plastic glue, pear and alcohol. Sweet flavour contains solvent, alcohol, raisins and wood. Warming and drinkable quad, but not very nice due to the sharp alcohol in taste.
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05/2014
Aroma has raisins, ripe fruits and some sugary tones. Flavour has ripe fruits, some gluey tones, raisins and alcohol. Also some whisky-like wiidy notes. Very foamy palate. Interesting, there is still alcohol and glue present but somehow I like this more.

On tap @ Get Real NY Belgian Fest. This was downstairs kinda by itself but real glad I found it. Smells great of port wine and dark fruits. tastes of sweet yet burnt sugar, cherries, plums, and other dark fruits, caramel, wood, nuts, and finishes boozy. Remind myself to grab this beer again come winter.
