June 26, 2015 - bottle from AV3. Muddy brown pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, booze and spice. Taste had the caramel sweetness with some dark fruit, wood and spice. Finished with a rich alcohol / cognac that had the right amount of heat.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle - Murky brown with a small creamy beige head, didn’t stick around. Flavor is just big rich English barleywine. Pretty sweet, but the spicy alcohol and old wood dry things out pretty well. There is some sweet rich cognac in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle, deep brown with thin white head. Nice aroma sweet barely wine notes of dates, raisin and a very light notes of cognac.
The flavor is rich yet, not overly sweet. Molasses, dark fruits and a light warming sensation without any alcohol hints. Very soft carbonation that gives a smoothness. Body medium leaning on the full side. Really nice.

Poured from bottle thanks Adrien. Reddish brown pour with a tan head. Aromas of grape tannin toffee and sugar. Taste is awesome and follows aroma with a well balanced boozy finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very hazy dark reddish brown. super murky beer. a small dark white head. The aroma is pretty insane. sweet and burnt brown sugar, baked apples and a little graham cracker / animal crackers. This is a good beer. Has a great toffee and apple taste to it. brown sugar, grape tannins and very old woody taste. Decadent and an interesting beer.

1500...woot woot. Bomber thanks to RespertFTW who I'm been fortunate enough to share most of my beers with. Cloudy brown with lots of sediment and almost no head. Grapes, tannins, vanilla, and lots of toffee. Similar flavors with even more grape.
