NeoHippie2 (794) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Dark red pour with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel malts, brown sugar, and some subtle roasted coffee. Flavor is very similar and that abv is dangerously invisible. Very tasty!

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Dark brown, very opaque. Small off-white head, almost tan. Little bit of lacing left behind. Malt, figs, dark dried fruit, molasses, and vanilla in the nose. Taste is all of the above with a bit of a grainy finish. Not bad at all.

Fyldig lett sødmerik salt lukt med preg av karamellmalt, humle, toffee, salt lakris, buljong, sjokolade, tre, gras, litt umoden banan. Sødmerik lett fyldig og syrlig smak med preg av karamellmalt, humle, mørkt sukker, toffee, sitrus, gras, kakao, tre, salt karamell, alkohol. Middels bitterhet som set litt. God.

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottled. Love 110k. Has a great amount of alcohol and some sweetness to it. You can taste the cedar and the caramel. The hops is very mild. Malt is the number one factor in this beer. That is where all the sweetness is coming from. I think it is balanced well.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle shared at DLD 2013: Deep murky amber nearly brown with a fading head and not much lace. The aroma has notes of brown sugar, toffee, bitter liquorice, marzipan, fresh oak, grassy and herbal esters with a touch of pine and grapefruit. Faint sourness as it warmed. The taste is quite sweet and fairly boozy with a earthy pine note but not much bitterness. Much like the nose there appears to be some lactic sourness developing which I am sort of liking because it cuts some of lingering sweetness. The mouth feel is uber sticky and aggressively warming, slight metallic and tannic note as well. Methinks I would have enjoyed this more if a fresher sample but age has not mellowed this out at all it seems, so who knows?

Murky amber with a cream head. Nose is sweet, malts, caramel, and dough. Easy palate, chewy malts, bitter, sweet, sticky, bitter finish.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. Pours a cloudy nut brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, dark malty honey-syrupy tones, hints of smoke and toffee. Taste is creamy caramel and toffee tones, hints of toffee, alcohol and smoke. Creamy and full body, soft carbonation. Good stuff, and as heavy as 110K indeed.

22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-352) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy dark red brown beer, small light beige head, unstable. Aroma: lots of dried fruits, sugary, some citrus, lots of caramel, brown sugar. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some citrus, lots of caramel, sugary, dark chocolate. MF: mainly dark chocolate, caramel, bit sugary, yet not too sweet, vanilla, bourbon flavours. Man, this is pretty impressive!

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of ibrew2or3, thanks Dave. Ambrée foncée, col épais beige. Arôme malté, caramel, grillé avec un bouquet agréable de houblons pour une certaine douceur. Palais est malté avec ici une belle présence de profil houblonné. Ce dernier ajoute une dimension citronnée et fleuri avec un fini grillé presque toffee. Note de sucre brun? pour un léger collant aux lèvres. Peu quasi passer pour un jeune barley wine. Encore une fois, une bière qui fait dans l’excès alors que on pourrait faire plus simple.
