BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle 1540 of 1722. Aroma begins crossing the eyes and burning the nostrils but mellows with time in the glass. Molasses, pepper, maple syrup, fusel alcohol and a certain brinyness. The flavor dangerously masks ABV. Vanilla, gooey caramel, Mrs. Butterworth, cake batter, and butterscotch. Like two different beers when rating the nose and flavor. Syrupy and sticky.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Full on dirty brown murk, odd bubbly head and weird spirity lacing. Nose is full on; burn coconut, varnish, wood, cherry and an affront to any malt with an effortless sweetness. Initial taste isn’t far off, balances things out with plucks of malt, caramel, wafts of vanilla and a dusting of spiciness. Drips of lemon, cola and then the booziness rears itself. Carbonation isn’t too soft, engaging mouthfeel and spicy enough for the linger. Finishes creamy, soft berry and molten malt. Linger is a covered thick with this sweetness and peppery, dry boozy linger.

Bottle, Garvie?, Decantillon Tasting
