4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy dark auburn with a creamy tan head that dissipates to thin ring kept alive by consistent carbonation.
Aroma: Lots dried fruit, malt and apple.
Taste: The malt is up front with stewed dried stone fruits and baked apples. The 10.5% alcohol content is definitely there, but doesn’t overpower.
Texture: Full-bodied and sweet cut by the carbonation and alcohol.
Drinkability: This a good example of the style, but probably not my first choice.
Presentation: Poured from a 12oz bottle into the tulip glass that came in the gift set.
Good off-white head. Excellent lacing. Very Malty; lots of caramel, candy sugar. Very Fruity; dark fruits, raisins, plums. Spicy. Yeasty; lots of floaties. Hoppy; slight balancing hop bitterness. Some warming alcohol. Smooth. Sweet malty, fruity, spicy and yeasty throughout. Nice beer! chadski (155) - California, USA - AUG 7, 2017

Mild plum and prune nose. Cloudy rust, thick tan head, decent lace. Maraschino cherries, plum, new plastic. Full body, soft carbonation, alcohol well-masked. Tasty, a little lacking in compexity for the style, but quite nice. ALIBALI (2397) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2017
