[750ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Clear burgundy colour (slightly reddish off-brown). Meaty oaked aroma, some slightly spicy fruit on the nose. Toffee, balsa, touch of smoke on the flavour, before more of that umami flavour and spiced elements round it out [21062013]

Aroma of typical fig and apple. Pours brown and heady. Tastes like a typical quad. Chewy figs and molasses. Not too special but very pleasant.

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 24, 2013
75cl bottle. Pours a deep brown/riby color with a small beige head. Beautiful boutique of aromas: prunes, molasses, nuts, sweet malt, caramel, some spiciness. Flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts, raisins, brown sugar. Creamy palate. Alcohol nicely covered up with the rich flavors.

Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Red tinted brown with 1 finger tan head. Big raisin aroma with something else, almost fruity/tanic. Taste is mostly raisin, a bit tart, overall a bit lacking, but I feel I probably waited way too long on this one. Tingly carb, medium thin body.

Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC First Birthday Party, London. I think I brought this one. Pours clear, rich ruby with a creamy, beige head. Nose holds ripe berries and light spice, some caramel, bread, honey and dark marmalade. Big sweet flavor with lots of caramel, light toasty toffee, great ripe fruits, plums, berries, raisins. Full bodied with average, heavy carbonation. Very sweet finish with plenty of ripe fruit sugars, cherries, plums, bready malts. Big sweet beer in general, some spices and plenty of ripe fruits all around.
