This was from a 750 ml bottle.Poured a dark amber with a nice tan head.Aromas were of brown sugar,malt molassas.The taste was sweet and almost like some wines with hints of cherry and plum.For some reason I did not think it was that great,maybe a little too sweet. jimhilt (2634) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Pours a four-finger brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Mahogany/brown color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Malty nose. Flavor is caramel, dark fruit, sweet. Clean finish. High ABV is hidden. I need more of these to cellar! Bottled Jul 2007, $4.20 for a 330ml bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Hazy brown pour with a small white head. Yeasty, malty aroma. Flavor is fruity and yeasty: caramel and dark fruit, plums and cane sugar. Lightly spicy. Nice. Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2008
Pours a dark ruby colour with a small size head and almost no carbonation.
Vague aroma of sweet fruits and raising, needed a few smells to get this out.
Taste is more clear, very very sweet taste with fruits and spices, has a bit of taste like gluh wine there too.
Nice strong ale. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a brown body with a tan head. Dark fruit, plum, apple, and raisin with a big etoh bite. Lots of spices cinnamon and nutmeg come to palate. Light toffee and nutty flavors. Good brew. Gary (2094) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 I love the bottle label it resembles the Duff brewry from The Simpsons. This beer is hardcore Just looking at the label gives me a head spin Woah this is like a classy ghetto fuel if that aint contrading thinz notes of burnt fruit like plum and prunes with apple esters Its ridiculosly sweet and malty I like it though a nice sipper by fire and all that festive bulshit Bontus (807) - Flanders, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle. Glasswork is amazing. Pours near black brown with a mostly diminishing light brown head. Strong nose. Creamy oily texture. Full bodied beer. Soy sauce and port in aroma. Also cookies, nuts & toffee. Alcoholic finish.
