Dark mahogany-red with a nice head. The aroma has notes of raisins and dark, ripe fruits. The flavour has notes of caramel, dark fruit, raisins and plum, port wine and the body is quite full. The alcohol is well hidden. In the finish I find caramel and weak hints of licorice. Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007

Sweet, prune and apple aroma with hints of cherry. Ruby color, light brown head, few lace. Rather sweet, even a bit sugary, prune, raisin, hints of chocolate and licorice, bitter finish. Sticky and alcoholic. Nice and flavorful.
Bottle from supermarket in NZ, poured a dark brown with a reddish hue and a beige bubble head. A rich toffee aroma with a cherry fruit sweetness. A full mouthfeel with a syrupy stewed fruit flavour - cherry and apricots. Becomes more malty and dry through to the finish. Nicely done.
