Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pours a beautiful red-orange color with a low, frothy off-white head. Aroma has a strong dark fruit and dark fruit notes, toffee sweetness, light cinnamon and clove spice later in the nose. Flavor starts off with a pronounced spiciness and moves to a strong raisin middle with an alcohol and yeasty finish. Body is smooth and sugary with fine carbonation and a strong dryness at end of the tasting. Overall a pretty good brew. Sweetness is kept in check by the nice spice provided by the yeast. Very good brew for the price and is very pretty too look at.

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours amber with very limited white foam. Aroma is very liquor-like, alcoholic, and apple. Body is dense and with some astringency. Taste is wonderful, with fruity sweetness, like plums, little cherries, apple liquor. Finish is long and very pleasant.

Shag (3047) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Murky orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some spices, caramel, alcohol, and raisins. The flavor is rather boozy with some toffee, citrus, caramel, apricots, and spices. Quite yeasty. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Overall this beer reminds you it is over 12% but it is not overpowering. Good stuff.

Pinky77 (256) - - NOV 2, 2016
Bevuta alla spina, colore oro marrone con schiuma beige compatta e persistente. Al naso ha profumi di frutta scura e pane tostato. Al palato uva passa, miele con un tocco di pane tostato. Molto piacevole la dolcezza dell’ uvetta passita, sentori anche di prugne secche e albicocche disidradate. Piacevole il calore dell’alcol nella gola, birra corposa, non smetterei mai di berla......buonissima
