Draft at the Toronado Barley Wine Fest, or could have been a bottle or three. Much fun and much heat, huge beer. That raisin, choc, coconut and intense fruity finish is insane. Good memories, I think. Hic.

Bottle shared by Damian and Lona. Easily one of the most amazing beers Iíve ever had. Dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma and taste are perfect, booze, caramel, malts, and the most ridiculous vanilla.

Ferris (5239) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Draft - Bourbon, vanilla notes and chocolate. Dirty row with a decent beige head. Boozy, cocoa and a nice malty sweet vanilla finish. Lots of sweet bourbon.

Prufrockstar (1209) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Draft at Chucks. So much for my productive work morning. Murky brown pour with very little head. Beautiful nose. Raisins, figs, vanilla, molasses. The filling for grandmaís date pinwheel cookies, spiked with whiskey when she wasnít looking. Taste is sweet; smooth alcohol burn that you can feel moving down your throat and into your belly. Lightly bitter finish. Afterwards the mouth is coated with the residue, so the flavor lasts and lasts. Sticky (in all the best ways). Palate: full body, slick sticky texture, light carbonation. Overall: yep, this beer (on draft) is good no matter what barrel it goes into.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 20, 2015
2014 edition. Poured from a 12.7 oz bottle into a tulip on 12.05.14. A: Lots of vanilla and caramel. A: It has a ring of fizz that quickly recedes to nothing. Opaque purple body with some lighter purple at the bottom and sides. Sediment is there too. T: Vanilla and caramel dominate. A tiny bit of woodiness is subtle. P: Syrupy smooth. There arenít many bubbles. Itís not flat but maybe undercarbonated. O: The alcohol heat was definitely there. It looks and feels like a liquoer. Itís not very complex, but it has nice flavors.

TET (1808) - FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
A dark brown beer with a very weak and beige head. The aroma is rich, lots of raisins and dried dark fruits, madeira wine, some vanilla and bourbon. Sweetness is balanced and itís slightly syrup with dried fruits. Rich and great aroma. Taste has lots of raisins and madeira wine, dark fruits, some barrel. Warming alcohol but no taste. Propably, the barrel is reducing the sweetness and thus the sweetness is balanced. Full bodied, slightly sticky, no carbonation. Complex and enjoyable beer without too much of sweetness, even the flavours has strong sweet elements. Strong raisins. Balanced barrel, it would be nice to taste the normal version also.
