4.63/5 rDev +2.7%
Served from bottle into goblet at somewhat higher than refrigerator temperature. Pours dark-brown with a thin head which dissipates quickly into a pretty lacing. Aroma is of fruit, must, and chocolate. Flavor is quite similar- fleeting malt and a bready chocolate. Light carbonation and very little hop presence (it is, rather, very well incorporated). There is far too much complexity to describe. Just go ahead and have one.

4.43/5 rDev -1.8%
poured from 11.2oz bottle into pint glass
A-somewhat cloudy sienna colored with about a finger of head that fades to a small ring without much lacing
S-dark fruit dominates at first then goes to some brown sugar, molasses, carmel and a bit of cocoa
T-everything from the smell is here also, lots of flavor and well balanced
M-medium bodied with good carbonation and not too sweet on the finish
O-flavor and complexity are excellent in this and the alcohol is well hidden for 11+% would make it easy to drink too much of this if you had more than a couple on hand

4.5/5 rDev -0.2%
330ml bottle poured into a goblet.
Hazy gloomy dark brown in color, the pour yields thick creamy light tan head with good retention. It gradually collapses to some long lasting foamy layer and patches covering on top, high fizzy carbonation with exceptional strength of stickiness laces.
Dark fruits remind me of plum and raisin yet with cherry along with a note of cocoa, dark chocolate, some smokiness, bread malt, cereal, dark sugar, liquorice and mild phenolic spice.
Estery popping in mind by the trait of dark fruits, sweetness is up there from fruity, dark sugar and alcohol. Mild phenol being a bit spice to slight medicinal, subtle bitterness derives from hop and hint of smokiness. Malt is in backing by lending a hand of dough and dark bread. Alcohol lurks with a warming touch that is deceivingly hidden.
Bold with a bit syrupy body, velvety yet silky smooth mouthfeel with some lively crisp from proper fit carbonation, finish is a bit dry.
Nearly immaculate, it’s a superb blending of brewing and art, so tasty and briskly inviting a sip but with alcohol evilly dwells to ravage. Anyway, who care?
