4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle through recent trade. Pour has a very dark brown color bordering on black with basically no head and a somewhat still look in the glass. Aroma has rich malt, light roast, some complementing oxidation, brown sugar, brandy, and some barrel wood. Wow, a truly wondurful aroma with light fruited touches and such depth. Mouth feel is thick and oily and there is a slight bit of carbonation but not much. Flavor has plenty of malt, a bit more roast/smoke, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, vanilla, barrels, and light bourbon. This is really complex and rich with a bit of heat at times warming you through the glass.

I got to try this, fuck, over a year ago. Maybe a 2-3 oz sample pour from a buddy. I didnít take any notes, but I got to thinking I should just enter it and maybe someday Iíll get to try it again and do a proper rating, but I was at work so I didnít have time. I just remember it being very dark brown with basically no head and having a very complex aroma with dark fruit and some smoke notes being predominant. It was very sweet and the body was heavy, oily, and soft to almost not even carbonated. It was a great experience and one I am thankful for being a part of. Someday perhaps I will get to try it again. But until then, Daveís not here, man.

12 oz bottle at the Hair of the Dog, Portland, OR. 2013 vintage.
Dark reddish brown colour with no head. Plums, figs, prunes, more dark fruits, sweetness, mild chocolate notes, sweet malt and dessert wine in the aroma. The flavour is... out if this world. Amazing flavour of dark fruits, sweetness, brandy, chocolate, malt and all the goodness in the world.
So so so tasty! I'm willing to sell my soul now!
