Scopey (6834) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle, BenH. It pours deep brown with a tiny white head. The nose is rich, wood, vinous, brandy, cognac, stewed raisin, malt loaf, dirt, toffee, burnt cake and earth. The taste is rich, oily, brown bread, malt loaf, crystal, earth, burnt cake, screen, warming brandy booze, umami action and other stuff. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Big malt loaf action. Too sweet for the likes of me.... But enjoyable in small scoof measures.

solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2014
You have to make a deal with the devil to get an Alaska tick. Nice thick barley wine that taste decent consider the huge percentage and potential for being a boozy mess. A little too syrupy for me though. Lots of malt here, some citrus. Plenty of booze. Bottle shared by Travlr or someone at Churchkey.
