2005 Bottle from pushkinwow.

A - Pours an almost black, deep deep brown and murky colour. Half finger of beige head on top with mild carbonation.

S - Lot's of boozy dark fruit. Syrupy and sweet aromas.

T - Boozy dark fruit, sort of spoiled fruits, but a nice intense alcoholic/fruit mix. A bit of oxidation maybe. Raisins, brown sugar, red wine, medicinal.

M - Mild carbonation, medium-full body and a boozy fruit finish with a bit of an off flavour.

O/D - This is probably past it's prime, but also quite complex and interesting. As it warmed it opened up with much more interesting flavours. Enjoying this one slowly, but the medicinal and syrupy sweetness are a stretch.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Deep reddish mahogany body and a decent light brown head. Plenty of lacing and retention.

Aroma:
Tons of sweet, dark fruits with dominant raisin. Bright brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon. Caramel malts. Quite pungent but in a good way.

Taste:
Follows the nose closely but with some added surprises, mainly in the form of a lot of tropical fruit. Sweet pineapple and peach laced with raisin and fig and roasted caramel. A bit boozy on the end, but works well.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and easy to drink. Medium body and light carbonation. Sweet finish.

Overall:
An awesome beer that packs a punch and plenty of flavor. A must have for fans of bold, dark beers.
