3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
6cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a light honey colour with no head. The nose has rum and raisin, maybe even dates with a suggestion of bread n butter pudding. The taste is somewhere between rum and brandy in flavour with a very big alcohol burn. The palate has very obvious alcohol as you would expect and this takes away somewhat from the general balance of it. Overall, though, glad they did it.

Tiny bottle thanks to Stuu666 for my 9k. Pours hazy amber with no head. Big bag of booze on the nose, sherry, rum, raisins, caramel. Faint aniseed. Taste is hot, more like a spirit than a beer. More dried fruit and sherry. Glad to have tried.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle split at Reubs flat on night 1 of RBESG ’15, thanks to Kenny for this juan, 20/08/15.
Amber with moderate off white spotting that is eager to dissipate.
Nose carries rich sherry tones, toffee, dark malt, wood, caramel, booze tunes but well tempered.
Taste comprises woody tunes, boozey, a touch harsh, rich fruit cake, menthol notes, not a patch on the nose.
Full body, slightly cloying but not OTT, warming alcohol in the close.
Not a bad effort for the ABV to be fair, tidy nose but became a little harsh thereafter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from 6 cl. bottle, courtesy of Colin, thanks! Amber colour with no head. Sweet aroma with lots of booze, barrel - bourbon, sherry. Rich caramel malts and dark, dried fruits. Taste is sweet. Thick texture with a flat carbonation. Lasting sweet and boozy finish with barrel and dark fruits. Pleasant beer despite the alcohol content. Still to extreme for me to be really good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 Bottle (2 oz.)... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and deep amber with no head. The aroma is a complex and bold blitz of port, molasses, dark honey and maple syrup. Full-bodied with only the dawn of carbonation. Bold and boozy, the flavor boasts sweet maple syrup, dark dried-fruits and tawny port. Finishes surprisingly smooth with afterthoughts of maple, dark honey, light molasses and ethanol. I thought this would suck. I was wrong. Complex, world-class beer, courtesy of biggsbowler!

Kaum karbonisierter, sehr spritiger Antrunk. Wenig Aromen, eher wie ein guter Brand. Minimal malzig, zum Ende hin noch etwas alkoholischer. Interessant. 7/9/5/9/12/8
