65 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego.tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Pours ruby red color with a small head. Lots of spices on the nose, sweet caramel malts and ripe fruits, licorice and faint yeast. Sweet banana flavor, caramel, some syrup and toffee too, all the sweetness moderately balanced with the strong alcohol, lots of sweet ripe fruits, plums mostly. Really heavy and rather complex. Strong carbonation. Might improve a bit with age, quite tasty already.

on tap @ Prospector’s / Denai Nat’l Park AK --- Clear mahogany brown color, ivory head cover, sheets of lace. Solid aroma of maple and malt (in that order). Taste is strong malt that stays steady until the swallow, when brown sugar, maple, and apricots take over, leading to a finish with very light bittering. A big, fabulous brew, in spite of the emphasis on the sweet. Be careful - the alcohol is well-hidden. Highly recommended. tossmeabeer (33) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - JUN 2, 2015

With Zack on the patio with an AVO cigar, pours a dark deep mahogany brown color with a small Java head. Nose is sweet, toffee and stong syrupy malt. Taste is malty with caramel and toffe, sweet and very drinkable even with the high ABV. Finishes on charmingly sweet malty notes with an abrupt ending. Nice, real nice ! Quaff Score 9 /10
