2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled at the FF tasting. Poured a dead lifeless syrupy orange amber. Aroma of booze, alcohol, sweetness that eludes to chocolate and a hint of citrus. Flavor is horrible, just booze and no beer notes at all. Palate is just mouth-numbing alcohol. Why even make this??

Bottle courtesy of clockworks at Paulís February 2015 tasting. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with floating stuff throughout. Mouthfeel stings with alcohol burn, shots!, shots!, shots!, mushrooms and leather. Lots of spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small handbottle shared by Keir, who got it from jtclockwork - thanks a ton, Keir via James! You guys are the best. Really. Pours a clear bourbon-like color, maybe a bit darker or more íburntí looking. No head. Good lord. This is intense. Burnt sugars, tobacoo, leather, caramel, and fusel alcohol. Not as smooth or satisfying as most liquors, or at least the bottles of whiskey and shit I have around. It burns the nostril and harshes the palate. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation. Holy cow. So glad I got to try this beast, but itís a sort of one-time experience.

Thanks James. Iím not sure where to start with this. Clear brown, like flat cola. Nose is sweet, smokey, with alcohol burn. Tastes of sweet smokey alcohol. This is pretty harsh. Iím glad I got to try it, but wow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Jamesí house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear cola brown. Big warm chocolate, cocoa, warm alcohol and umami and soy sauce. Medium to thick bodied, certainly some alcohol, but itís not unpleasant in small sips. Soy, mushrooms, tobacco, leather, jerky. Warm and boozy, but lots of chocolate, smoke and tobacco. Lingering alcohol, along with chocolate and cocoa powder. Nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small sample generously shared by JTCLOCKWORK via Jeppe. Aroma is dog biscuit, soy, leather, Asian mushrooms, beef, and sweet chocolate. I mean what? Viscous and thick muddy brown, this thing coats the glass so I had to lick it clean. Taste follows suit with mushroom, tobacco, kibbles, leather, and beef. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth and mellow given its gravity. Aftertaste is like beef and chocolate. Overall, not as gross as I was anticipating. A rare treat to try this. Thanks, James.
