3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smell of smoke and dark fruits with some oaky backnote. Pitch black with no Head. A bit like oil. Dark fruits in the taste as well with a dry and smokey aftertaste. Nice sour/bitterness from the rasberries puts a sweetness to this very masculine beer. Low in carbonation and the perfect match to a friday night indoors while the rain is pooring outside:) good choice for a celebration.

2nd tasting since 2012: The honey and raspberries have come through with raging, however paradoxically it is a less sweet beer, very oaky

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Ferris). Looks solid; pretty still though. A fairly opaque dark coffee with razor-thin beige lacing. Smells good; dark malt, chocolate, booze, honey, and oak. Intense, but nice. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as balanced, and without the honey. Solid on the palate; a bit thinner than I’d expect for the abv though. Big boi beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Molasses, boozy Whisky and some anise. Jet black with no head. Sweet honey, liquorice, dark fruit and some light Whisky notes. Boozy and oily. For something this old still very big and potent.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle #1433, April 2012. Big black pour, slight red tinge, small ring of head. Aroma is mostly port and sherry, some chocolate, a big dose of alcohol, a touch of Pot Noodle oxidation. Body is medium to full, smooth with just a touch of carbonation. Taste is smooth malts, tangy alcohol, just a touch of red berry, sharp alcoholic finish. Smoother than expected for a 17%er. Very slow drinking, and lacks the complexity that you’d expect from a beer this big.
