3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Ripe dark fruits, bananas, subtle spice, caramel, champagne.
A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, tan head.
T- Dark fruits, plum, banana, subtle spice, caramel.
P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, soft effervescent finish.
O- Didn’t live up to the hype for me but a solid beer. Lots of dark fruit flavors and aromas and not overpowering. A little high on the carbonation, and almost felt like drinking soda at times although as it warmed this settled down.

Good classic double. Nice deep dark with a fluffy off white head and soft lively carbonation. I like that it is not too sweet. Flavors are well balanced. Noting is dominant. It is yeast, malt sweetness and some burned malts, caramel and fruits and hops. Alcohol is hidden. Body is light and refreshing for such a dark beer. Acessible easy to drink.

Bottle - deep ruby red with a light brown fizzy head that slowly fades to a small ring. Aroma of roast malt, earth, spices, grass, followed by rich coffee, vanilla and some bubblegum. Taste of malts - roasty and peppery, with notes of clove and bubblegum. Rich and sweet. Medium body, high carbonation.

Rich and complex, yet at the same time rather mild. Lots of fruit, mostly of the sour variety, and fairly tart from the mid out. A bit weak and somewhat thin on the finish.

33 cl bottle at home. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium head. Aroma is sweet and spicy, almost of clove. Complex taste, initially sweet but with a developing smooth bitterness. The finish is quite short, but bitter. There is almost a peppermint jam undercurrent, which is almost palate cleansing. A rich and satisfying beer which is also very drinkable.
