On tap at the Barrel Cellar. Pour is murky brown with a small tan head. Big coconut, caramel, toffee, raisins, bourbon, wood and brown sugar notes in the aroma. Taste is big caramel, coconut, some cocoa, dates, plums, somewhat earthy, and wood With a touch of heat on the finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad but a bit oxidized.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Pours a rich amber to mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of rich layers of creme brulee, raisin, salt water taffy, roasted peanuts. A viscous body that coats your mouth with some underlying booze, hints of bitterness never quite make it out of the round sweetness but teases the back of the palate. Solid.

jstraw (1937) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Dark mahogany with scant, beige head, no lacing (BA) / Rich, deep, sweet nose of sherry, dark fruit, chocolate, caramel / Full body, smooth, modestly chewy, sweet but with excellent balance, just a hint of bitterness, light heat / Flavors of date, fig, chocolate, caramel, light sherry barrel / Nicely restrained, not a monster, with good complexity.

Drucken på Norrlands Nation. Russin och plommon i doften tillsammans med en sötaktig ton. Tunn kropp, smaken påminner starkt om doften. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1989) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light head. Aromas of brown sugar, malt extract, and dark fruit. Flavors are rich and same with an additional Christmas cake spiciness. I’ll take the front room over the back.

NeuroPliny (162) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured from a 330cc bottle. Colour is hazy dark brown. Head is tan and minimal. Aroma is dried fruit, raisin, brown sugar, and molasses. Flavour is caramel, sweet malt, dark dried fruit, sherry, and hints of fig and chocolate. Despite that description it is not too sweet. Awesome!

Satyroneto (134) - - JUN 19, 2014
Cor marrom escura com sedimentos em suspensão; espuma amarelada de baixa formação e baixa persistência quase sem lacing; Aroma intenso de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto; toque leve de torrado; com o aumento da temperatura o torrado torna-se imperceptível e surgem notas de vinho tinto que se somam as notas de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto; Sabor de início doce de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto e final que aquece a boca; retrogosto levemente adocicado lembrando frutas vermelhas; Corpo leve e um pouco licoroso e sedoso com baixa carbonatação. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Sátyro

Hazy deep red - amber beer, bubbly tan head. Palate is smooth and dry. modest fine carbonation. Nice malts, rich unsweet toffee, very slight burned. Touch of wood. Mild sherry and a trace of sweet dried fruits. Finishes smooth with alcohol. well not hot, but numbing the gums. Nice barleywine.
