Ruby red in color... Aroma is sweet malts.... Flavor is slightly sweet with prevalent notes of roasted chestnuts, extremely unique... I like it... Lilja (3256) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, katrinplommon, vita russin, farinsocker och brunt socker. Rund, len, stor sötma som dock inte ta över, jämna smaker, fruktig med lätt beska. Ett gott dessertöl. NikkTwist (3251) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy copper pour with a rather full off-white head. Lots of complex dark amber fruit. Hazelnuts. Fair amount of medium-blonde caramel notes. Some sour sparkle. Noticeable bite in the finish. Having an aged version. Cleverly better than it first seems. Jorn69 (3216) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2014

Poured a clear amber color with no visible bubble... still in fact. Aromas were sweet vanilla, winey, nutty and boozy. Taste was alot of the same rich mouthfeel with a bit cloying but a perfect dessert beer. Really getting the fortified madierized merlot barrel. Very complex not something id want a pint of but rather a small snifter after a light meal. jeremytoni (3073) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2012
From the tap poured a brown color with almost no head. Light spicy malty flavor with a lingering finish. PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle generously shared at Ginger Man: Amber pour with a creamy off white dense head. Elegant aroma. Tart notes, mildly vinous with oak, mild leather and sweet fruit notes. Creamy body. The flavor has a great blend of sweet and tart. Smooth mild oak presence with some honey and plum notes. Seems to have a brett character, but I think it’s just the oak presence. Balanced and damn tasty. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color without any head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa. Caramel malts backbone in the taste. Nutty notes, along with brown sugar, molasses, cherry, plums and soft hoppy finish. Rich palate and fine carbonation. Exceptionally balanced, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a nice change of pace. PhillyBeer2112 (2861) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Reddish copper, foaming fizzy head. Aroma is restrained but hints at nuts and caramel. Maybe a little spicy gingerbread or candied citrus? Flavor is light and bready with a hint of rye and a little alcohol burn at the finish, which is kinda rough and maybe even a tad fuselly.
