Half pint from JDW real ale festival. Dark amber colour, clear, one finger head, faded fast, kept tiny amount of lacing. Aroma was malt, caramel, rasperry with notes of Hallertau hop. Tasted brown suger, caramel, sweet rasperry, alcohol burns at the finish. Syrupy texture, minimal carbonation, booze gave it a coarse edge. Overall decent Bo(c)k but there are better examples around.

Pours a deep brown with lighter brown highlights when held up to the light. Nice white head that settles to a cap which covers the entire beer.
Nice caramel aroma, lots of sweetness with a lot of sweet fruits. A little nutty but dominated by caramel.
Taste follows suit with the nose with the caramel dominating and a bit of a nutty flavor in the after taste. There is a detectable alcohol heat but it is not overpowering by any means. Just lets you know that the alcohol is there.
Body is a little thin and the carbonation is a little high for the sweetness of the beer.
Overall this is a pretty good beer, I've had better examples but this one is pleasant and even a little alt like.
