3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a dark amber brown, slightly hazy with a small light tan head. Sweet dark fruit and cola malt, roasted nuts, touch of peat and light pine. Lots of sweet candied fruit and caramel malt...really fruit cakey...with some earthy notes of pine, peat and light toasted/charred wood. The 100 IBUs and the abv are pretty tame on the palate.

A dark brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet vinous malt with treacle, scotch character, grassy hops, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity vinous malt with treacle, grassy hops, molasses, very nice for the age. Xmas Ottawa gathering Dec 13 2013.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Well, I’ve had this a few times, and figured it was time to review.
Pours dark brown with a mahogany tone with light, little latte rim and bubbles. Smells magnificent. Sweet molasses, candy, caramelized sugar, plums, brown sugar, malt, malt, malt - so delicate and sumptuous. Flavor follows with the same and add in some really nice nougat flavors and cola flavors. Medium on light syrup body with moderate carb and semi dry finish, this hits the spot. I’m glad to have a few more bottles. Really coming into it’s own right now. A really nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark dark amber with a bit of off white head.
Smell sweet fig, cross between a quad and barley wine.
Taste buttered toast and caramel. Toffee, cream, vanilla, sweet boozy red fruits.
Tough drinking, big bodied.
Not that great

Bottle to tulip. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Nose is sweet toffee and dark fruit; reminds me of a barleywine. Taste is dark fruits, berries, roast, vinious, booze/bourbon. Full mouthfeel. Not as good as I had hoped.

Bottle I think I picked up in Vegas right before we moved and am now drinking in Ohio. This is like a barley wine meets molasses. I thought it was pretty tasty and the 11ABV was deeply hidden. I’ll be waiting for 2020 for sure!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Upon pour there was an instant aroma of sweet malts and cotton candy, but there was a whiff of beer that smelled similar to a barley wine. Liquid was a deep shade of mahogany with a firm layer of thin film head. The flavor was sweet and sticky and had a heavy backbone of malts with an addition of fig, cigar and a minor background of root beer. Such a good beer.

Thanks to BOLTZ7555 (JBOLT...trade with him now!!) and Chase for sharing. Ruby red pour, not going down hill for those that have claimed this needs to be cracked now. Nice Carmel notes, sweet, smooth, mild carbonation, one of my favourite beers of the night.
