nimbleprop (5347) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2010
25cl bottle pours a flat, oily black with zero head. Smells like turpentine, light smoke, brandy, woody, grappa. Flavor is thick, brown sugar, coffee liqueur, super sweet and sugary, burnt toast. Very full bodied, sweet finish. The barrel is in the nose, but not the flavor. Drinks a lot heavier than 10%.

180 ml bottle. Clear, pitch-black body with no head, just a few random bubbles. With this beer it looks perfect, just as expected from something like this. The aroma is just fantastic, strong dry fruit like raisins and figs with well-matured oaked red wine and vinous alcohol. Flavor is strong, dry fruit, smooth, dark malt, some chocolate, quite bitter, wood with smooth and warming alcohol. The body feels fat, oily and perfect. The first sip together with the aroma is much like aged wine, quite fruity and then surprisingly and almost intense bitterness leads to quite a different experience. A bit unusually and still incredible smooth and enjoyable. Perfect for sipping and 180 ml is just perfect for one person. Amazing.

Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, soft grapes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light to moderate alcoholic. [20100924]

dark red-brown, no head. Red wine, oats, bit of fruit and also acetone. Flavor is sweeter, sugary chocolate cake, very dense mouthfeel, alcohol without much bordeaux. Really desert like. Needs more wine, too hot without much behind though enough marriage to get some desert. No carbonation, thin but chalky body.

GT2 (8998) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
180mL #410 courtesy of Travlr. Pour is a flat, clear, deep cola brown. Aroma is powerful red wine oak, smoked meat, spicy vanilla, vinous port notes. Wickedly inviting. Taste is spicy, rich, drying oak, slight tanginess from the wine. Coffee, cocoa, vanilla extract also peek through. The palate is lacking though compared to Misto BA, which is simply unbeatable.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Vinous and liquor aroma with lots of chocolate and roast, just a touch of green apple really detracts from the festivities. The taste is moderately sweet, extremely low bitterness, lots of milk chocolate, and some dark fruit. Nearly flat with a chalky texture. Very green. Very disappointing.

Christian (11392) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
Blæack with a big and lasting tan head. Rich roasted aroma with chocolate, licorice and ink, and hints of red wine. Sweet roasted flavour with some wood and berry notes. Great balance and a long lasting aftertaste
