savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft @ Humpy’s. Pours a very murky, rusty copper color with a tiny off white head. Aroma is almost all raisin and toffee, there is some light fruity esters and wood. Flavor is toffee/caramel, dark dried fruit mostly with some light bitterness and a very tame alcohol presence. Medium body with a mild, soft carbonation. Hard to believe this one is 17%, drinks like a 10% beer, really reminds me of smoother, cleaner, Tomas Hardy. I hope Gabe bottles this.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle sampled at THE FESTIVAL 2013 with Andrew, Jay and Kramer. Pours a murky brown body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is heavy booze - some mix between bourbon and cognac, rich caramel, molasses and sweet sugary dark fruits. Mouthfeel is medium and not at all harsh considering the gravity. Flavors of sweet molasses, maple, wood, spice, bourbon and light vanilla.

kramer (4941) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Sample @ The Festival. Pours a clear dark amber body with zero head. The nose is super malty and rich with tons of dark fruits and raisons. Some wood and booziness, but it doesn’t kill the malt. The flavor is thick and rich with a heavy caramel and dark fruit maltiness. It’s like liquid raisons. The barrel and alcohol are certainly there, but it’s surprisingly second fiddle to the malt. Not sure I would have guessed cognac in particular though. Thick and chewy body with minimal carbonation and a bit of alcohol heat on the finish. This was pretty darn drinkable for such a huge ABV, even on a fairly hot afternoon.
