650 ml bottle (2007) shared with Bananaman.
Dark red color with a mediumzised beige head.
Smell is dark berries, fruity candy, sweet malts... well actually I think it's like smelling into a bag of candy or something... not that wrong. Some american hops there too.
Taste is fruity with a big bitterness. It also got notes of fruit candy with a sweet, pleasant aftertaste. Lots of american hop-notes with a obvious taste of grapefruit. Very good. Some warming alcohol in the taste.
Very filling, fullbodied and nice in the mouth. The carbonation is average and very nice. A bit sticky, but not in a bad way.
A very nice sipper. Reminds me a little of american barley wines, but it has some other characteristics as well. My next bottle will be standing for a while though.
