Bottle. BBE date Dec 2012; Drank Sep 2011 - Deep Gold in colour. Malty; lots of caramel, toffee, candy sugar. Fruity; orange-citrus. Hoppy; slight earthy and herbal hops. Alcohol very noticeable. Very sweet malty fruity throughout. Much too sweet and too alcoholic. Rather OTT. Shame. Disappointing! (2011-09-29)
JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Slightly oxidized copper color with a moderate, stable beige head. Sweet barley scents. Light brown sugar, marzipan and stewed fruit come to mind. Soft palate with just enough zip to keep it light. Sweet malt and floral flavors. Alcohol is rather present. Too much so. Compared to the Imperial Stout which showed very little EtoH. Not as easy of a quaff. 10/11
