(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with firm, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with caramel, chocolate, black rye bread, orange peel, coffee, dried fruit, spicy aromas of tamarind and some treacle. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, caramel, dried fruit, marzipan, orange peel, hazelnuts, black rye bread, spices and a sweetish finish with a mild bitterness and a touch of alcohol. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Soft and rounded mouthfeel for its strength. Well made, but feels like it’s lacking some of the complexity of the original version. Nice one.

Pours nicely in dark amber with lots of coffee and cocoa notes. Nose disappears after 1 to 2 minutes almost completely. Would gain from storage likely. Taste is sweet and malty but also looses with time. Palate short and sweet. mikske79 (1701) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2017
