Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle at city beer. Batch 1. Pours a dark brownish color with minimal head. Slight soy sauce on the nose with subtle caramel. Taste is big maltiness with a cherry flavor. No oxidation on taste. Phenomenal sweetness balanced with a nice boozy heat. Smooth and sticky mouthfeel. Overall excellent beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (3772) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Bar, San Fran. Ruby color with some soft Carbonation, no head. Aroma is layers of thick dark fruits with a strong note of cognac underneath. Holy hell the mouthfeel is sticky sweet with the cognac being a lingering element. Very low alcohol in the flavor, extremely smooth and only a light warming sensation after the sip. Warming alcohol on the tongue after the sip is gone. Really like drinking a nicely aged brandy. Would cellar very well

22 ounce pour at the Beer Trappe. Big sticky caramel toffee brown sugar barley wine that is pretty awesome at such a high abv.

Bomber. Poured dark brown with a nice beige head and nice lacing all over. Aroma of dark fruits, malts and booze. Taste is also quite boozy, lots of dark fruit and malts and certainly some cognac. Amazing beer, a sipper but extremely enjoyable.

Gription79 (2390) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 26, 2013
On draft at Humpy’s. This is the easiest drinking 17% beer that I have had. Burnt sugar, caramel, toffee, raisins in the finish. So damn good.

Draught at CBC 2013. Clear copper/mahogny, light to medium beige head. Sugary, nutty, caramelly malt aroma, some herbal hops, alcohol extremely well hidden. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Sweet, medium bitterness.

mcberko (7792) - 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.
