3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a chocolatey brown color. Lots of carbonation. Light brown head. Pre-dominate rummy alcoholice aroma. The flavor is where its at. Chocolate, raisins, cooked sugars, rum, other dark fruits. Full on the palate yet easy to drik several. Very nice. I may start keeping a couple around.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml Bottle: Pours crimson-brown with a thick foamy head; incredible foam stability throughout here. Aroma is a beautiful blend of alcohol-soaked cherries, burnt caramel, and brown sugar. The flavour when cold is a muted combination of roasted malts, bitter apples, spices, and gentle hops. As it warms this turns from something great to something exceptional, an intricately crafted and balanced brandy-style beer with perfect creamy mouthfeel. Can’t wait to do it all over again.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a deep chocolate colour with a thin tan head. There was slight vanilla scent in the nose and a hint of a sweeter finish. There was a strong malty flavour but even at 7% the alcohol flavour was present throughout. It felt a little thin as far as the mouth feel but it was an enejoyable beer none the less. I look forward to a chance to try the tripple and will definitely have to revisit this with another sample.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 33cl bottle; one of the LCBO’s exploding bottles. Poured a rich brown with a 1/2 inch thick head. Barely translucent and it reminded me of aged pure maple syrup. Aroma of vanilla and candy permeates the nose. Flavour is malt and alcohol...the 7% clearly comes through. Caramel finishes the flavour.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 330 ml bottle - Pours a deep brown with golden highlights at the edges. Delicious aroma of grapes, black- berries, and lots of malt. Full mouthfeel, with an emphasis again on the malt, but without being cloying. Smooth and almost wine-like, and it should be treated as such - it truly is a holy thing. Highly sessionable for it’s strength.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Reddish brown in colour. Seems to be slightly hazy. Tall light-brown fluffy head. Distinct candy sugar sweet aroma with light banana esters thrown in. Crisp dry flavour with a drying hop bitterness. Somewhat thin-bodied, but holds quite a lot of flavour. Surprisingly bitter. Nice mellow flavours.

Bottle, BevMo La Mesa. Pours a dark maroon color. Very rich dark fruit is noticable in the aroma. Some spice and yeast as well. Fairly good sized head. Citric bitterness up front. Some raisin and a hint of yeast. Seems to be very dry. Finish is a little hoppy and bitter.
