Bottle 500 ml. Pours dark brown with ruby reflects. Aroma is of brown sugar, roasted malt, alcohol, and dark fruits. Taste features a strong bitterness. A bit thin. Good beer although a bit too bitter for my taste. Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy copper body with a thick, lasting, off-white foamy head. Rich malty/hoppy taste with brown sugar, woody, and fruity hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody and barley sugar notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Good stuff. Cantabrian (1130) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 29, 2016
I thought I had done this ages ago. Well, here we go. Clear brown copper, with an off-white head that’s just a bit too bubbly. Aroma of booze, biscuits and brown sugar. Taste is on the same vein, with malts, biscuits, molasses, nuts and raisins. A whole bloody muesli. Medium body, pleasant to drink. MarcinG (864) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2016 Butelka 330ml. Ciemno -mahoniowy kolor o ladnych rubinowych refleksach. Piana raczej mala ..bezowa ,szybko zanika. W zapachu suszone owoce:rodzynki slodkie rozane aromaty ,slody,karmel i wisnie. W smaku slodkawe z delikatnym wedzonym tlem. Duzo tutaj owocowych akcentow. Alkohol grzeje w przelyk ale nie jest nahalny. Rodzynki toffi i "beczkowe"drewniane nuty...naprawde niezle. blackisle (2578) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016
