Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown colour with a medium-sized beige head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and dried fruits. Sweet flavour with malt, caramel, raisins and alcohol. Aftertaste is dry and bitter.

Martin243 (1117) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
500ml bottle from B&M. Fruity-Toffee aroma from a beautiful ruby red beer. White head which quickly disappeared. Sweet heavy, and sticky caramel toffee syrupy flavours. Little carbonation, which would liven this beer up. Alcohol dominant. Not bad, but a little too sweet, a little too flat, and a little too sticky to be really good. Wouldnít want to drink more than one (at a time.)

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2006
[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Big malty aroma, raisins, orange peel, spicey, alcohol. well bodied but feels a little vacuous and the palate is marred by some tinny notes.

kalervo (1040) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2011
I was a bit disappointed. A bit too sweet and dull taste. Quite one-sided too.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught. Bitter & Twisted Beer Festival. Pours a really nice golden brown with a slightly reddish tint. Small tan head that fell away pretty quickly. Really nice caramel and toffee aromas. Some nut and toasted aromas also. Flavours are quite malty with plenty of toffee. Dome bitterness on the finiish but nicely balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice beer.

jackafholmes (1011) - - MAR 16, 2014
Dark with not much head. Sweet malts with forest fruit flavours. Smooth mouth feel, remarkably drinkable for its strength.

Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, lingering dry, dried fruit, caramel, sweet but slightly bitter finish with subtle alcohol warmth. Comments: Very good. This rating is for the 7.4% ABV bottled version.

MPA (997) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 29, 2005
Maybe the taste of plums, raisins, prunes and other dark fruits is just meant to become more pleasant as one grows older. I certainly like it in beer, which makes me quite positive about this beer. Although it is on the light side in the dark fruit department, it still makes up for a good beer Itís supplement of nice malty tones combined with itís taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and Iím only 30?!)

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Very subtle aroma. Dark brush and mildly fizzy. Thick caramel saying with a sticky throaty experience. Quite gorgeous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
