Bottled 6cl @Beer Hunters
Clear deep amber color, no head. Vanilla, fresh wood, caramel and alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of vanilla - very sweet - dessert wine. Lots of sugar, some burning alcohol. Better than expected!

Very small bottle at Cecil Late Fall Monster tasting. Pours clear deep golden. Aroma is very alcoholic, ripe fruit and is port like. The flavor is heavy alcohol and sweet ripe fruit.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, dark red colour, no head at all. Incredible, strong and complex aroma with rum, caramel, alcohol, wood, anise, vanilla, a deep fruity character, strong Metaxa notes. Oily, strong alcoholic body. Strong, alcoholic, sweet flavour with anise and caramel, rum and notes of whiskey, wood, honey, a great range of subdued fruity notes. Impressive, interesting, and definitely worth a try.

Bottle into snifter. Transparent light brown colour, no head. Smell is sherry- and alcohol- forward, with some rum too. A swirl brings up some legs. Taste is, again, sherry-forward, quite a rich body with traces of the malty beer that once was, some diacetyl maybe, liquorice, plenty of alcohol sharpness. At 28% this tastes stronger than it is. I find it hard to think of this as a beer. As a spirit it is drinkable but not great.

29.09.2013, 6cl bottle @ home:
Completely flat. Aroma is sweet and slightly boozy, candy sugar, alcohol, caramel malts, oak, raisins, thinner, dates, bark, dark sugar. Taste is sweet and dry boozy, caramel malts, candy sugar, alcohol, licorice, raisins, oak, grass, dark sugar, burnt caramel, even more alcohol and oak. Very dry, longlasting warming boozyness. Nice enough, and quite interesting. But this is just a brief shadow, or rather a ghost, of for example Utopias.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from bottle. Clear reddish amber on color. Huge whiskey barrel notes from the start, which continiue into more sweeter ones after that. Malty sweetness actually, some sherry barrels as well. Filling, strong and slightly boozy aroma. Strong as hell, some fruityness is there but mostly some liqour boozyness. Too strong for me

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Reddish clear. Vinous sherry overripe fruits on nose. Leafy nuttyness. Raisiny booze. What can I say? Loads of flavours, nutty nice malty shot. That is a beer.

6cl bottle @ Brewdog, Stockholm. Clear red color, no head. Cherry attacking your nose immediately, followed by woody, whiskey notes. Reminds me of some greek destilled stuff. Flavor has grapes, sherry, wood, sweet sugary notes. Quite a treat.
