Clear amber pour with a sweet boozy pear liquor aroma. Taste follows nose with a watery mouth feel. Not bad.

Lovely clear amber with a beige cap. Aroma is full and a little boozy with cognac and Indian fudge, pears, sultana, ginger, cassia, white pepper. 8+ Creamy and soft until a big whack of alcohol intrudes. Moderately sweet, not all that heavy with still some Indian sweetmeat spicy notes in with the gentle bitterness.Has a lot going for it and is certainly not a staid drink or one that is all that much like previous vintages I’ve had, but too much overt alcohol - I would have expected that to fade by now if it was going to.

Pours nice amber with small white head with some lacing. Aroma is toasted, some earth, clove, sweet fruit esters, resin, molasses, toffee. Medium sweet, medium bitter, average long aftertaste, slightly salty. Body is medium to full, palate is oily, carbonation is soft. Very tasty and not too one-dimensional.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
(No 020409. BB 2023) Une robe ambrée avec un col beige qui ne fait pas grand bruit. Au nez, pain épicé et agrumes, caramel anglais, parfum boisé et tarte à la farlouche. intéressant! Au goût, raisins secs dorés sur fond de toffee, échos de cerises et discrètes épices. En bouche, un corps moyen-faible avec un pétillement modéré et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale très raisins avec une touche amère d’alcool.

WVHouseofBeer (1057) - West Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Pours a hazy copper color with a small white head. Aromas and flavors of caramel, figs, cherries, cinnamon and some alcohol. Smooth body with a slightly sweet and spicy finish. An elegant beer that probably could have spent a couple more years ageing in order to take away the alcohol bite, but nonetheless delicious.

Almost clear amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. A light malts sweetness, mild caramel and a touch of bitterish toffee. A nice cherry tang, mildly sour even. Dried fruits and mellow brandy. Pince of spice, something that tastes vaguely like cinnamon. Light finish. Plenty going on here. Tasty and interesting.

Christian (13343) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle at home, last day of 2015. Hazy red amber with a lasting white head. Aroma of dried fruits, rich malt, marmalade and honey. Medium dry malty flavour with plenty of fresh grain, and breadcrust. A touch of fruity and grassy hops, and a nice bitter finish. Slightly oxidized
