As a gift from the missus, i didn’t know what to expect.
Lots of caramel and dried banana on the nose; the alcohol coming in at the end.
The palate reflects this with dried fruits shortly on the finish.
The 11% hits hard.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy deep brown color with quickly diminishing tan-like head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, mild roasted malt and dried fruit, following is alcoholic and yeasty, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Nice one, not even so strong than expected...

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bottle at the Cafe Bastille, near Tai Power Building. Aroma: prunes, fruit gums, very inviting! Appearance: just like cola, no head to speak of. Palate: full-bodied and sweet. A long, malty, sweet finish. Taste: very smooth, the alcohol is well-hidden. Unfortunately too sweet for me, once is enough.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large Bottle - taste is strong and well balanced. Nothing dominates the palette, and it is neither sweet nor bitter, but shows its true colours slightly with a touch of alcohol on the tongue. Drunk at a pleasant comfortable pace, it goes down very easily.
