UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Interesting color: kind of red/orange/brown/yellow, nice white/reddish head. The taste is also very interesting: it is very very balanced. It doesnt have the amount of bitterness and carbonation you would expect in this style, which I really like. Combine this with the full bodied, yet not overpowering, sweetness, and you have a very great beer!

Good beer with the tangy port barrel taste. It is a good beer for a late night drink. Does not have to be consumed at Christmas time . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours copper-amber. Not much foam. Aroma caramelly, bit if bourbon and malts. Also a bit of booze. Dried fig and other sweet fruits. Tastes sweet, dried fruit sweetness, orange marmalade. Bitter jam sweetness. Herbal hop longer with some bitter edge. Not really feeling bourbon but somewhat better than a regular.

Akiro (73) - ITALY - MAR 25, 2017
Degustata in bottiglia da 33 centilitri. Colore giallo ocra, torbida, schiuma poco presente e per nulla persistente. Liquoroso al primo assaggio al secondo gradevolissima con sentore di agrumi arancio in particolare. Mentre finale ferroso ed amaro leggermente. Invecchiata in botte ha una gradazione alcolica alta pertanto una birra da meditazione. Ottima per una merenda rinforzata alle 4:00 del pomeriggio. Stiamo bevendo una versione vintage 2014, sicuramente da riprovare.

Piotrek4 (117) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Rodzynki i toffi oraz niestety trochę rozpuszczalnika w aromacie. W smaku susz, wanilia, bardzo przyprawowe. Alko trochę grzeje. Pierwsze skojarzenie do tego piwa to grzaniec, Zupełnie nie moje klimaty, chociaż gdyby nie było takie przyprawowe, to nie najgorzej.
