Frothy beige head left a creamy cover on a very dark brown still body - looks impressive.
Massive aroma of spiced fruit, dates, licorice, booze & mulled wine.
Full bodied, thick, chewy, soft on the palate & spritely on the back. This is so thick, it's like having a meal!
The sweet taste is the as big as the aroma with heavily spiced fruit, pepper, aniseed, alcohol, jam & an almost medicinal tasting long finish.
This is a huge complex beer, a real fireside sipper. culchiem (4244) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2018

Poured at Shelton Festival, black with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit, booze, cocoa, roast. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, boozy finish, very good. Almogabar (95) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - DEC 17, 2017
Botella de 75 cl adquirida en la web store Cervezas Especiales. Color marrón oscuro, densa, espuma marrón abundante y con retención. Aroma a chocolate, madera ahumada, café y alcohol. Sabor marcado por el paso por barrica de vino jerez. Sabrosa, notas dulces, café, chocolate negro, naranja y jerez (quizás demasiado marcado). Buena cerveza sin ser excepcional.

Another disappointment. This beer scored so high on ratebeer, but what I got was very sweet and phenolic in both Aroma and flavor. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2017

Bottle. Pour is deep brown with no head and no carbonation. Notes of molasses, soy sauce, bitter chocolate, and dark caramel. Finish is very sweet but masks the alcohol decently.
