3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 750ml ($5.75): Pours a mahogany with a small head. It is a bit flat, which leads me to believe that this might be a bit on the olde side. Aroma is caramel, hops, and light fruitiness. Taste is sweet and bitter. Some mildly sugary aftertaste. I am sure that a fresher bottle would be better, but this ain’t that great in the form that it be at now.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a deep nut brown clear body with a small off-white head. Aroma is phenolic raisins and dark fruit tones, grape peel, wet paper and hints of paint thinner. Weird, and not too good. Taste is raisins, slight phenolic touches, dry wood-like tones, alcohol and deep malts. Medium body and carbonation. OK, but not great.

Aroma is malty with raisins and brown sugar. Flavour has ripe fruits, lots of malt, caramel and raisins. Not a bock in any way, more like a dubbel. But a good one!
