2.4/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.25

A: Color is copper while the rather small off-white head is kind of compact. Decent lacings.

S: Nettles and hay. Rich malt, very sweet. Dark dried fruits. Not very well balanced though. Kind of corn flakesy-smell. Alcohol is present in the smell.

T: Unbalanced; marzipan and almonds. Sweet malt and perhaps a hint of cognac, not very obvious though. Dark dried fruits. Alcohol.

M: Body is rather thin considering the style and the high ABV. No carbonation. Aftertaste is sweet and rather short (thank God!).

O: Very unbalanced. I doubt that this would improve, left alone in the cellar for a bunch of years - but if it doesn't - avoid.

Serving type: bottle

3.13/5  rDev +13%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A - Light brown fizzy with a bit of foam
S - fruitcake, sweetness, booze at the end
T - Sweet, bit of nut and dark fruit (again fruitcake-ish) a bit of cognac I guess but not much booze in the flavor.
M - Thin and fizzy, a dissapointment
O - Not a bad beer but the MF was a let down no doubt and the flavours could have been better.
