33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2016
Aroma is malty with lots of toffee and hints of berries. Also some vanilla and baking stuff. Flavour has raspberries, some toffee, malty notes and caramel. Some fruity hops occur after a sip. Also some yeasty and worty notes at the middle of the glass. Quite odd and somewhat messy, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this.
330 ml bottle. Hazy yellowish brown colour, thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour is sweetish malty, with raisins and notes of nuts, and a warm nutty finish. Not bad. k2cr2o7 (68) - SPAIN - DEC 22, 2013
Cerveza ale color ámbar oscuro, espuma casi inexistente blanca, gasificación baja. El olor es bastante dulce y a malta caramelizada. El sabor es muy acaramelado con cierto toque a frutos rojos. El final es dulce y algo alcohólico. Recuerda a algunas barleywine. mikkos (306) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Dark ruby with a cremy head, long lasting. Aroma is fruity sweet caramel malts, toffeeish, cognac, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is ripe fruits, sweet malts, raisin, warming and quite wintery indeed. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit short finish with no real bitterness. Warming alcohol. Nothing special, but still rather pleasant.

Coppery colour with an off-white head that quickly dissapears. Aroma has notes of caramel, molasses and raisins Flavor is moderate sweet with a good presence of alcohol, notes of molasses, raisins, red fruits, good maltiness. The final is slightly alcoholic with light sweet notes. Desnse and smooth on palate.
