Ottima dopplebock dai profumi fruttati con note liqueriziose. Al palato gran bel corpo, un po' troppo stucchevole.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear mahogany with a slightly yellowish head. Aroma is malty with caramel. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness, sour and spice. It tastes like dessert. Its fairly malty with notes of bready malt, apples, spice, and caramel that remind me of apple cinnamon bread, and then cherries and raisins. There’s some booziness, like rum, but it’s under enough deliciousness to avoid being off putting. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This is definitely a one and done beer, but it’s one that I will definitely come back to.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear mahogany colour, moderate off-white head. The aroma is disturbed by notes of hay and cardboard. Also caramel & treacle are there. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Lots of caramel & molasses. Vinous. Low bitterness. Rather disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 0.5l bottle, thanks Riba! Lovely red amber clear body and a small beige head. Not lasting. Caramel, dry and alcohol. Too much alcohol really. Caramelly taste, sugary bit, soft. Low alcohol thankfully. Just a bit in the finish. Ok stronger lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, deep copper red. Dense, bubble topped, cream coloured head. Nose has fruited malt loaf. Well baked apple. Some caramel. Hint of almond. Taste is toffee sweet. Soft and foamy mouthfeel. Has a little vine fruit dryness towards the end, but stays mostly sweet throughout. Nice enough, but a bit sticky for me.
