3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is a red mahogany color and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of malt, dark fruits, prunes, dark syrup, light yeast and spice. The flavour has sweetness and notes of candy sugar, caramel, figs, plum, raisin, light yeast and spice. It is smooth, nice, but not as voluminous or powerful as many other in the same style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from De Bierloods I think. Deep deep ruby piled with beige. Demerara, HP Sauce, juicy prune, mouldering apple and dusting of chocolate aroma. Caramel and coriander smoothness, brown sugar sweet and apple-accented. Black cherry booziness, but not overpowering. Slky with cooked sugar, dark fruit and yeast. Pretty good.
