Bottle with Pat and Allen. Poured a brown color with thin head and not much lacing. Aromas of cheese, wood, maple. Taste is booze, sugar, dark fruit, figs, cherries, wood, cognac. Boozy and warming as hell, but still layered and delicious. Some other vanilla bean in their as well. Sticky palate.

What an incredibly awesome beer! It was dark when I poured and drank it, so I don’t have any idea of the looks of it.the aroma is stunning, whiskey, vanilla, barley wine. Taste likewise with hints of wood. Body is full and almost oily and the carbonation is very present for a beer of this style and alcohol percentage. topbeer!

On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. An amber body with a small off-white head. Strong aroma of dry fruit, caramel malt and warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet, really sweet malt, dry fruit particular raisins, vanilla and burning alcohol. Full body and looong aftertaste with the same flavor. Fantastic BIG beer, even being this sweet the alcohol and bitterness seems to create some kind of balance. The bitterness is almost not notable, but it just has to be there. Amazing and wonderful.

Bottle. Sample courtesy of Vinnay. Pours like a nice, deep red with a soft, clean surface. Aroma of Dutch cheese, cherry cough syrup. Nice and dank yo. I don’t feel like finishing this. Thanks Vin.

Pours a flat copper color with minimal carbonation. Aroma is dominated by alcohol. Some bourbon, vanilla, and caramel are there, but mostly just booze. Taste is a bit more balanced, though still boozy. Vanilla, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, and toffee are also present. Plenty of caramel and some hints of dark fruit. Not bad if you can get past the extreme booziness of the nose.
