3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Sweet and sour notes jump out in the aroma. Very fruity, with some sour grapes, light spices and wet oak. Color is a cloudy dark copper brown. Medium bodied and very warming. Light malts, spices and yeast. Sourness is not very apparent in the flavor. Big alcohol presence. I would guess more that 9%. Finishes pretty clean and warm with a lingering spicyness. Pretty good and very easy drinking.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 Damn my laptop. Typed in a whole fucking review and the overly sensitive mouse area thought I wanted to go back. Fuck my laptop.
Way too thick and cloying for my taste now. I’ll leave my rating as is, but if I were scoring this today it would be more like a 3.1 or maybe a 3.2.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with orange hue. A lot of fruit esthers, some apples and yeast in the flavor. Slightly sweet malt and a lot of acids in the flavor. Oily on the palate. Long lasting finish. Alcohol is somewhat dominating in this beer though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from lowlander. Pretty deep red-amber with a swollen off white head that faded to a good half inch of dense cream head, leaving a perfect lace. Strong nose of vanilla, oak, walnut, tangerine and some caramel. Taste is a let down after such a fantastic aroma - light spice, nuts, apple, fig and dates. Slightly metallic finish. Creamy, full body. Too watery in the taste, but otherwise a top bew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a dark, slightly muddy amber. Head is yellowish white, a tad foamy and quite big. Stunning aroma! Lots of red apples, some caramel, vanilla and candy sugar. Oily mouthfeel. Very nice flavours - lots of spices. Vanilla again, ginger, pepper, oak, caramel and much more. Quite vinious as well. Well-rounded, powerful and great. Still sweet in general.
