3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky brown liquid with small to medium brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, raw sugar, wood, honey, nail polish, bourbon and booze. A bit phenolish. Taste is medium to high sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of candy, dark fruit and booze. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. The nail polish component isn’t nice. The high ABV doesn’t add anything to the beer... Do something balanced instead.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, vintage 2012) Dark reddish brown colour with a brief, frothy, beige head. Malty, vinous nose with notes of caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, raisins, prunes, oak wood and aromas of both cognac and bourbon. Malty, vinous taste with caramel, dried fruit, raisins, cherries in brandy, dark bread, prunes, chocolate, black coffee, salty liquorice and a fiery, vinous finish with oak wood, bourbon, a balanced bitterness and a warming alcohol glow. Full body, quite sweet. Subtle is hardly the word, it doesn’t hold back on anything, lots of malt and bourbon character and it doesn’t really hide the alcohol. But it’s really tasty, with a clean and rounded mouthfeel and a certain hop presence. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Cafe Abseits during the Bamberg Jolly - January 2014. Cheers! Pours lightly hazy golden brown with a foamy, off-white head. Decadent and ballsy, but very good. Lots of heavy bread, fruitcake, caramel. Full bodied with chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with gooey fruits, toffee. Good stuff in small doses.
