Mooie chocolade bruine kleur met een goede bruine kraag. Ruikt koffie, vanille, crème. Smaakt bitterzoet, koffie, alcohol, specerijen. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a lovely glowing amber ruby looking one. It also has a small islandy dark beige head. Smells lovely sweet with all sorts of dried glazed fruits; dates, raisins, sticky toffee caramel pudding and glaze. Yeah, it has a lovely sweet and punchy aroma! Oh, this tastes good as well. I get that dry licorice thingy at first with a ton of dried fruits and berries. There’s a woody touch to it as well here. Feels really thick and sticky in the mouth this and it’s only prickling on the tongue. Would not mind a bottle alone of this one. 15.02.2014 GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Jank Bottle Shop Solana Beach ][ $17 ][ Crooked Stave Globe ][ 7.11.14 ]
>> Pours clear sepia core, deep red edges. Massive creamy yellow head. Nose is chocolate covered strawberry, vanilla, slight metallic, white chocolate mousse. Taste is dusty, metallic, papery, milk chocolate, rum soaked strawberry, milk chocolate covered strawberry. Rum cake finish. It’s pretty damn good, just not my style: sweet, red, high boost. Cleans up as it warms, good stuff.

Yum. Deep, cooked caramel and raisin aroma. Rich flavors, very strong. I’m enjoying it with Stilton and marcona almonds. Fuck, I’m turning into Charles Finkel. Great beer, wait ’till it’s gone to eat the stinkin’ cheese. devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2014
