4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Two and half fingers of head on a deep brown colored body.
The aroma is a great blend of caramel, apple, pear and other bright fruits.
The taste has a big dose of caramel malt sweetness, some fruit, black licorice and mild bitter finish.
The texture is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation.
Very well done..

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium to big head.
NOSE : burned malts with dried fruits like raisins, figs, pineapple and mango. Fresh banana and licorice.
SIP : smooth and creamy. Low to medium carbonation. The body is thick. The body texture is spot on. It marry well with sweet, burned and fruity flavors of this beer. Sweet chocolate tart with a hint of alcohol. Dark fruits and licorice give it a little sour and dry middle. Ending is deep and malty. Some spiciness in the finish. Alcohol is amazingly well hidden.
OVERALL : a great brew ; well balanced, smooth body and the drinkability is quite surprising for the amount of alcohol it has. Well done.

On tap at The Fred. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. The aroma is figs, molasses, cola, and black cherries. The flavor is very sweet, with a very little bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, malty, sticky, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a delicious, well made beer, with a good flavor and nice mouthfeel.
