kbudd19 (984) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Muddy brown pour, two fingers of tan creamy head. Aroma of plumbs, carmalized brown sugar, some nuttiness also. Flavour is some mild hops, a hint of caramel, some light sweetness, and a little bit of heat. Really well integrated and balanced, there is nothing about the beer that is cloying, a very smooth beverage, it is a bit subdued compared to the aroma but overall an excellent BW so glad that we have access to this stuff.

Lonick (1248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Pours red/brown with a thin head. Fruity and caramel with a little oak sweet with a hint right at the back, right at the end of tobacco. Not as good as the front room

33 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is rather sweet with porto, woody notes, some yeast, ripe berries and hints of vanilla. Flavour has porto, woody notes, some juice and caramel. Woody and dry palate. Surprisingly thin and straightforward, the alcohol is well hidden though. A slow sipper.

Bottle. Dark brown with tan head. Not a lot going on in the aroma, some dark fruits. Taste of sherry fruits, little chocolate. Sweet with a bitter finish. Preffered the other one.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Dark brown with slight red highlights, very long lasting creamy cap considering the style. Aroma is creamy and sweet, pretty hoppy, mild chocolaty malts, smells really good. Very malty, with a nice hoppy finish. Chocolate, peach, sooooooooo smoooooooooth. Dark fruits, coffee, mild oak. This awesome beer is good.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
330ml bottle, pours deep dark brown, aroma chocolate, coffee, rich dark fruit, rich chocolate, finish balanced and moderate bitter, carbonation is low, very rich, nice strong beer. Not as individual as the front room, but perhaps more like the kind of stuff I generally like to drink

Ktwse (4051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very dark brown to black with fairly low tan head. Aroma of barrels, not necessarily port, dates, figs, dark chocolate, burnt muscovado. Taste is rich, full, boozy sweet with port, dates, sugar... Light bitterness in the finish. Very warming. Rich and creamy body with soft carbonation. Front Room is better, this is still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has lots of port, caramel, toasted, raisins, sweet. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of raisin, caramel, sweet port, plums, fat. Vinious, warming. Lovely.
