bytemesis (6297) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle thanks to MrH, 2013 vintage. Pours clear mahogany, minimal head or lacing. Some beige bubbles perhaps. Aroma is molasses and bourbon, cocoa. Flavor is fairly sweet, molasses and bourbon again, with some chocolate and vanilla notes. Light bitterness, not much ABV heat. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, minimal carbonation. Interesting.

The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
330ml bottled Jan 2013 at 10.6%. Very thin pour - dark red with a small tan head, dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cherry, alcohol. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is caramel, warming liquer, a little booze, finishes a little woody. This is nice, just not what I was expecting. Tastes somewhere in between a barley wine and a Belgian strong ale. Intense sweet flavour. Quite nice.
