4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark red pour from the bottle. Little to no head. Minimal lacing. Big aroma of plums and dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet, plum, raisins, dark fruits, brown sugar, with a distinct bitterness that carries into the finish. This is very much like a barley wine. A big beer that needs to be sipped.
Draft at Rothbard. Strong smells of yeast and malt. Pours dark brown with a tan head with tiny bubbles. Huge tastes of raisins and malt with alcohol undertones. Oily mouthfeel and tons of lacing. Big character beer. gripweed57 (2793) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2017
33 cl swingtop bottle. Murky brown color. Small creamy tan head. Rich complex dark fruit aroma. Flavor upfront is dark malt with notes of prunes, raisins and burnt sugar. Complex and flavorful. Smooth and oily mouthfeel. Some resiny hop bitterness in finish, though understated. Warming alcohol as well. The malt shines here. A real sipping brew that improves as it warms. Outstanding! alex_leit (5004) - Minsk, BELARUS - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Opaque dark brown color with yellowish foam. Sweet and dense aroma: malty, caramel, dried prunes, blue plum jam, port wine or similar strong and sweet wine, esters and a light perfume note (slivovitz). Taste: very sweet, jam from blackberries, plums and raspberries, caramel, dried fruits, a drop of slivovitz, bitter finish. Very good. Scopey (15427) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle from Utobeer. It pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is rich, malt - driven, sticky, oily, molasses, soft aniseed nuance, dried fruit, fruit cake, toasty, burnt toffee and wood. The taste is drying, rich, chewy, oily, slick, molasses, dried fruits, jam, earthy, wood, bark, tannin, stewed black tea, bit of spice, toasty and warming alcohol through the finish. Pretty drying and chewy stuff after a while. Has nice aspects to it, but it is a bit heavy duty. Rasmus40 (21687) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2017
