4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this one on tap at the Craft beer festival Rapperswil 2014, found my notes.
Black beer with a small beige head. Immediate aroma of Williams pears, just like a Williams schnaps. Chocolate notes behind that. Lots of wood as well. A fruity tartness dominates the taste, with some sort of a sticky-boozy sweet feeling. Fine stuff, unfortunately it appears to be very rare.

- ruby-black beer with a persistent beige foam; fair aroma of prunes and pears; fairly woody; creamy palate yet light sticky, full-bodied, pretty sourish and astringent, quite dry and long chocolatey and woody finish; very fruity (more prunes and pears) - very good stuff and very drinkable when you are further from the two first sips
