look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark reddish brown with a big creamy off white head. No lacing. Hazy body. Aromas of dried fruits and wine, burnt sugar. A little sweet, slight tartness. Very warming effect from the high alcohol. Subtle spiciness in the finish. Body is well carbonated. Overall this is decent. Not the best I've had. Could see this getting a little sickening though this style certainly isn't for sessions. Just a little too sweet and rich for my taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

375 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A. A deep brown color that does not let the light through with a tan head that lingered for just a short time.

S. Some sweet caramel and with a burnt brown sugar aroma.

T. It is very sweet with the caramel leading the way and not much else. It does finish a little warm from the alcohol.

M. A thick sweet syrup.

O. Its a bit of a let down flavor wise. I probably would not get again but definitely drinkable.
