FatPhil (12190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2012
330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Glorious hoppy aroma, sharp on pouring, mellower later, roaster as it warms. Deep red, persistent tight tan head. Lovely full palate. Spicy retronasals. Mellow roast, deeply burnt, but so mellow and no harshness. Sweet spicy bite, nice noble bitter tingle. Finish also has a great burnt, but mellow, hum. not really saying 10.8% to me. Another great beer from Menno!

Mora2000 (6132) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Thanks to someone for sharing at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting. The beer pours a brownish-amber color with a few white bubbles but no real head. The aroma has a lot of toffee and alcohol in it, but there is also a little bit of cherry. The flavor is similar. The toffee is complimented by some tobacco and leather notes, as well as some cherries and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle number 159 from the February 2009 bottling thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed amber hued body with a fading white head. Aromas are of brandy, bready, raisins, caramel, cereal and melanoidins. Some orange, citrus and resin. Flavors are bitter, with some sweetness, iced tea, brandy, orange schnapps and caramel. Lower carbonation, medium bodied, bitter duration and warming. Not sure how I would have liked this fresh. Not even remotely close to a DIPA any more, but decent as an American Strong or Barley Wine.
