11.16 oz bottle served in a snifter. Poured a hazy amber with a quickly dissipating head. Bottle conditioned. Lots of malt in aroma, caramel. Very sweet, not much hop bitterness to balance. Medium to full bodied. Not much carbonation. Didn’t do much for me.

Bottle pour. A lot of bread and caramel flavor. Aroma is a fruit, and a little boozy. This beer is very mild for a 10%. I was very surprised. Finishes a little boozy, but it’s not intense by any means. A little malty finish as well. Not too bad.

Bottle, courtesy of deanso. 2010 vintage Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is mostly red fruits, madeira and port wine. Flavor is very sweet, alcoholic and has slight touches of madeira. Boozy aftertaste, aged quite well. Very nice beer!

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a hazy medium to dark amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is weak malt with some boozy alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a liqouce alcohol palate. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel and a long bitter finish.

worldbeertaste (1545) - AUSTRIA - NOV 21, 2013
Caramel brown, with a thin, white, lacy lasting head. Smells of caramel, malt, red fruit, port and alcohol. Medium frothy oily body. Tastes of port with sweet caramel malt, alcohol, raisin, and a bit of burn on the finish. Warms the tummy. It aged decently, but it still has too much booze. The edges have been shaved with age. Three year old bottle, courtesy of deanso.

Ruby/orange/amber with spare head. Aroma of dark alcohol, malt, caramel and peat. Taste is smoother, and swwet , caramel, toffee, whiskey barrel. Slightly sour palate with alcohol warmth kicking in late. Nice fall beer.

S_Side_Smitty (392) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours very cloudy and brown with no head. Aroma is minimal - maybe some faint malts. Taste is almost like a nut brown ale with a spicy finish. Really, it’s all kinda flat. Hmm.

10.17oz bottle 8/22/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-48° in Snifter-Pours murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and dried fruits. Taste of the same with caramel and toffee coming thru on the back end. This full bodied brew is not bad but I guess I was expecting more.
