Bottle at home, 14th October 17. Pours pretty much black. Aroma is caramel, cocoa, slight spice. Taste is light liquorice, caramel, not as much spice as I expected. Palate is light, slightly watery. As it warms there is some wood, malt, slight yeast. Not bad. fombe89 (3922) - Asturias, SPAIN - OCT 14, 2017

Bottle from Brewklopedia. Purplish brown, opaque with a small khaki head. Chocolate, figs, liquorice, a touch of vanilla. Sweet, sweet war,ing taste with a smooth vinous note coming in midway through the sip. Light bitterness on the finish but the whole experience is quite sweet without being sickly. Plums and brandy notes in the finish. Heavy carbonation adds to the full, slick mouthfeel. A special beer. Rubin77 (2496) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2017

full nose of liquorice, warm nutty and sweet tones, extraordinarily heavy, best not for hedonistic/debauched weekends, however, if you wish to fall asleep on the sofa with your cat, this is the one for you. Beese (3084) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2017
Cask at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Kensington Olympia. Can't believe I haven't rated this before. Loaded with winter spice and sweet malt. Easy drinking. evannell (1327) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 1, 2017
Aromat orzecha włoskiego, palone słody (coś jak Kopiko), trochę kwaśności wydobywa się w zapachu. W smaku kwaśność na średnim poziomie, chyba trochę niespodziewana. Gdyby trochę wyżej odfermentować, byłby chyba niezły sztos. Trochę słodko, ale naprawdę miło. Pełnia kwaśności, słodyczy i goryczki.
