0.5l bottle from supermarket. aroma: coffee, caramel, alcohol, licorice, chocolate. Dark color with brown notes, small beige head, oily texture, medium to full body. Taste: sweet, slightly roasty, licorice, caramel. Good one. Bill Becker (2010) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 9, 2017

This pours a reddish dark brown with a 1 finger head of tannish foam. It quickly shrinks to a fine broken layer with almost no lacing.
The smell has notes of dark fruit, some chocolate, and a wee bit of coffee.
The taste is very light and very thin. I get some plum, some chocolate, very little coffee, maybe some fig but...they are all very minor players in the taste. The alcohol is hidden pretty well but too bad the flavours are also.
I've liked all of the Ridgway beers I've tried until this one came along. This is definitely a one of.

Fra fat på Cafe Viking (København), sammen med Børge: ibenholt med kort sku. Portvinsvinøs aroma og smak med mørke malter, svisker, rosiner, dessertsjokolader og vanilje. Meget myk, og med stor munnfylde. Farlig lettdrikkelig i solveggen utenfor C.Viking. Streif av luxuskaffe. Mild bitterhet med hint av mørke bær. Superfed. gopherfan99 (2012) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2017
