Oddly reddish brown in color with a murky complexion. There's a trace of beige head mostly present around the rim of the glass and barely elsewhere. The aroma is rather off putting with loads of malt and alcohol. The flavor is packed with loads of malt and the alcohol is detectable. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

A little too sweet upfront and a lingering aftertaste. But not terrible and very strong. I'd have it again.

Pours a hazy copper with a frothy cream head that dissipates quickly to nothing.

Booze, dark candi sugar, nutty caramel malt, raisins, and plums form the aroma.

Flavor is less appealing, beginning with a metallic note that lingers throughout. I can tell the base toasted malt is nice, with brown sugar sweetness accenting the underlying notes of dates, figs, and prunes.

Body is a tad light for the style, with fairly low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

Could be a really nice beer, but that metallic/tangy character kills it.

Thanks to Quique for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable and not all that bad for what it is.

Clear amber pour with a dark ruby hue. Weak head and lacing. The nose is of malt against a strong alcohol background. Medium body with a smooth texture. Low carbonation level. The flavor profile is two dimensional - caramel malt sweetness over a strong alcohol background. The hop level is so low it's almost undetectable. As it warms, and the palate becomes accustomed to the alcohol, the sweetness comes forward. On the finish, it flows from sweetness to an alcoholic aftertaste. A good, but not great, beer. More hops and dark malt would improve this one a great deal.
