COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

750 ml bottle. Pours brown with some sediment and a durable, tan head. Aroma is crayon-ish and grape with some burnt caramel. Flavor is some chocolate with dried fruits and even more fresh vinous grape. This is as close to a wine as any beer I’ve tasted. I’m sure this beer would be fantastic in 10 years and after just one, although not boozy tasting, I’m getting a buzz from just a few sips.

The aroma is sweet and yeasty with some chocolate. The appearance is brown with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma with plenty of alcohol for a 9%. The palate is thin. Overall it’s pretty good but not that impressive.

Gives a real spicy punch. A true peppery overtones that makes this a great winter warmer. Toffee and caramel like. Enjoy

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a dark mahogany with ruby hues and a well-lacing frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and earthy malts has some complex milk chocolatey notes with a touch of spices. Body starts fairly full, dark malty and sweet with a hint of tartness and some light fruity notes. Nicely balanced and drinkable.
