Reddish brown pour, off white head. Flavors of charred oak, vanilla, raisins...odd but interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle pours with a murky light brown body that supports a tan head. The aroma offers up some sweet malts, chili pepper notes and more sugary malt sweetness. The taste has sugary malts, brown sugar, candi sugar and then a thin layer of chili pepper meat rolling into more and more boozy heat. This comes across pretty odd as the notes aren’t melding all that well. And this actually doesn’t have chili peppers added? Fun beer to try though.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Mixture of chestnut and garnet in color with a small eggshell head. Brown sugar, candied citrus, cocoa, alcohol, ash, and roasted malt. Meh.

freretoc (581) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl (#3885), une couleur ambrée mais très troublée, aucune mousse mais peut être parce qu’elle était trop vieille. Une pointe caramélisée et très bonbon, bizarre à la première gorgée, mais excellent réchauffée.

Renobob (576) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 24, 2013
Produit très particulier mais plutôt efficace. Aucune bulle mais ce n'est pas si dérangeant. Caramel, malt et alcool très présents.

CarlJonas (211) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Dark amber colour, almost no head. Aroma of milk chocolate and brandy. Sweet, vineous taste with a bit of a hop bite. Slightly bitter and boozy finish. Medium body, low carbonation.

Yorker (1110) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #5838). Pours clear and dark reddish amber with a tiny white head. Aroma and flavour is booze, caramel, subtle smoke, and sugar – with an alcoholic finish.

danielyabu (1146) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 4, 2013
small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick light amberish-brown body (it’s actually hard to describe this hue). aroma: heavy roasted nutty malt, milk chocolate, mild coffee, raisin, wood. if: moderate sweet bitter. ff: moderate sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, chalky heavy alcoholic finish. Forte aquecimento alcoólico, leve presença de café no paladar, sobrepujada por álcool e toques amadeirados, considerada como IS, é muito diferenciada, amargor pungente, escalante, gredoso, é uma experiência que deu certo. R$ 63,90. Bottle 3331/7909. Dulçor tem a presença de frutas secas, lembrando uva-passa, principalmente. Excelente cerveja, principalmente pela quantidade de nuances surpreendentes que apresentou a esse estilo que, para mim, está caracterizado justamente pela falta delas. Na segunda metade da cerveja, o café ganha força, mas mesmo assim, continua sobrepujado pelo álcool e pelo amargor amadeirado. Baixa drinkability. 320 s

LarsEngen (351) - Sandvika, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2013
37,5 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Bottle 7546 of 7902. Bottled 06.12.11. Pours first golden then turns to murky deep amber with a small fizzy light brown head that leaves quickly. Aroma of figs, plums and some notes of Madeira. Taste is dark fruits with some hints of wood. Long warming aftertaste. Low carbonation, medium body, medium bitterness. Strange but cool

WOW!! AB:08. This is a stout! Pours...reddish/copper... its REALLY TASTY!!! If you tasted it with a blindfold, you’d swear it was as black as hell.
