4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at LA. Clear medium dark red and a one finger beige head, low retention. Big bourbon cinnamon vanilla nose. Dark fruits and sweet caramel toffee also present. Flavor follows, not super sweet, actually. Lots of bourbon, some chili heat does rise in the back of the throat. Dry finish, bitterness at a 2. Alcohol heat let’s you know it’s strong. Full body, low carbonation. Very very tasty. 8-4-9-4-17

Trevlig doft. Kanel lite choklad
Smaken är väldigt balanserad med chili, kanel och russin. Väldigt behaglig.

Bottle @Craig’s [paper rating backlog] Pours brown, tan head. Nose is cinnamon, vanilla, coconut. Taste is more of the same with some whisky and slight spices. pkomar (518) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Absolutely fabulous aroma of cinnamon, raisins, caramel, some vanilla in there as well. Taste is just as good, loads of cinnamon and raisins. Feels almost like a cinnabon, lovely beer.

12oz bottle from Belmont Station. Light brown, bit muddy, hardly any head. Has a full, rich aroma with figs, prune, alcohol, touch of pear, toffeeish malt, chocolate-covered raisin and even hints at some lapsang souchong. Fantastic complexity. Soft body, sticky toffee pudding, Alcoholic warmth, dates. Really a pleasure to drink. mliga (55) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Piękny aromat beczki i owoców, w smaku trochę za dużo alkoholu (z drugiej strony to prawie 14%). Bardzo dobre piwo, choć trochę za drogie. creppyiceman (955) - POLAND - AUG 26, 2017

Brown pour with barely any head. Aroma is sharp and boozy. Bourbon and cinnamon come to mind. Thin body. Taste is full of golden raisin and lots of cinnamon. A hint of chili pepper maybe? Nice beer. llkc (2610) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2017
