brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle @ Mikkeller San Francisco. Deep mahogany pour with a thin ring of khaki foam. Smells quite sweet and fruit forward. A ton of caramel, raisin, plum, and figs. Nice caramelized fruit and brown sugar. Plenty of vanilla, brandy, and oak. A Bit of chocolate and red wine/port. The flavor is super fruity and sweet, too. A lot of chocolate sauce and dessert wine. Quite like a port. Some brandy, vanilla, and brown sugar. Tons of rich caramel and buttery toffee. Slight booze as it warms. Really nice, though. Would crush again.

mcberko (14080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a reddish dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel and brandy barrels -- doesn’t taste that pungent to be honest. Flavour is very potent, with cognac barrels and caramel. Quite complex, considering the ABV, and the alcohol is very well-concealed. Very different for Anchorage’s typical beers. Great stuff.

bhensonb (13996) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of brown sugar and brandy. And oak. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, oak and brandy. Actually has bitter notes - but maybe that’s alcohol. Apropo of that, the heat is well under control.
