4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draught. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head that fades quickly. Nose is a complex mixture of earthy spice and vinous notes. Taste is very complex, with a supremely balanced flavor of subtle spice, a touch of funk, and a vinous backbone. Improves dramatically as it warms to the correct temperature. Has a dry, champagne-like finish with a very long finish. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2017 Bottle at beerbistro. Many thanks to Lisa and Craig for giving me an excuse to try this! Dark reddish brown with finely bubbled tan head. Sweetish raisin, molasses, and caramel aromas, with some faint hints of oakiness and leather. Slick mouthfeel. Lighter palate than I expected, hides its booze well. Sweet raisins and caramel dominate the flavour, with some cherry on the back end. Tasty stuff.

Body is markedly carbonated and dense, with some stickiness too. Taste is deliberately very sweet. Feels like drinking liquid sugar. Finish has some persistent sweetness.
