4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 750ml. Aged 6 months piror to tasting. Poured dark brown (virtually black) with a tinge of red and a large, dense, frothy, lightly tanned head which was fully lasting. A very strong and complex aroma with dark chocolate, rasins, blueberries, dates, figs, caramel, pepper, allspice and spiced gingerbread. Flavor was a light bitterness with rum & raisin chocolate, currents, blackberries, plums, roasted notes, ginger powder, hints of caramelized figs, a touch of coffee and a warming finish. Remarkably well balanced; beautiful contrast in flavours. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation, a lightly syrupy texture and a long length finish.

2011 bottle. Once I wrestled the cork out of the bottle this poured amber brown with a clingy beige head. Aroma is heavy on the clove, with banana, fig, raisins. Flavor follows nose, with a bit of caramel. Dry oaky finish.

I really enjoyed this beer. Couple things i noticed, i was burping a lot, and there was a film on my tongue that was weird after drinking. All that aside, the flavor was great.
