Bottled. Very deep ambery brown colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is mild wood, resin, some non-sweet syrupy notes as well as some mild ashes and toffee. Flavour is rather similar with mild alcohol sweetness. The alcohol is not disturbing sweet though. TBone (17685) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012

Dark brown color, small beige head. Coffee, molasses, syrup, raisins and plums in the nose. Medium-bodied. Coffee, light vegetables with acidic notes, caramel and toasted malts. Pleasant.
Draft - Dark roast and nutty notes. Jet brown with a small light brown head. Light caramel and roast with a mellow finish. Much lighter in body and taste than expected for the ABV and chocolate doesn’t really pop. bhensonb (15341) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
