2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Initial aroma is strong sweet fruity alcohol, like day-old dregs in a port bottle. Thankfully, this dissipates quickly, leaving sweet malt, raisins, Xmas cake, bread. First sips taste overly alcoholic, but it calms a bit as it warms. Overall, a well-made beer and drinkable but too sweet for me to want another.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a bad one but in the end it like a malt syrup with lots of sweetness, sugar and a decent end. Drinkable, warm but I would consider it a bit too thick.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear dark ruby colour with low head and medium body. Nose of malt and smoked nuts. Taste of strong pure malt, torf, vanilla, woods, leaves, nuts, roast and licorice. Due to its high alcohol content and its heavy maltness it is not that easy to drink. Maybe itís not even THAT nice, but at least it is special.

Bottle. Lovely dark reddish brown colour, no head. Aroma of dark fruits. The taste is sweet malts, treacle and dark fruits. A slight alcohol warmth is minor and very little bitterness. Medium bodied. This is a sweet beer but I would not say sickly. Quite good.
