danielyabu (1137) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 15, 2013
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. fully diminishing. flat thick dark reddish-brown body. aroma: raisin, cherry, wood, ruby port, alcohol. if: heavy sweet light bitter. ff: heavy sweet moderate bitter; long duration. palate: medium full body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, metallic moderate alcoholic finish. Me senti tomando um vinho do Porto portugues de altíssima qualidade ao tomar o primeiro gole, que foi acompanhado de forte aquecimento alcoólico (lembra o de cachaça), mas sem o equivalente sabor do álcool no paladar, aparecendo somente no final do gole, mesmo assim, sem incomodar – ou seja, disfarça muito bem os 11%. Excelente cerveja. Baixa drinkability, devido ao alcool e o consequente dulçor dele proveniente. Sente-se ainda leve toques salgados no background, o que ajuda a suavizar um pouco o dulçor dominante. Posso ter sido sugestionado pelo excelente post no fullpint, mas realmente concordo com a presença de geléia de morango no paladar. Ameixa-seca também presente, em maior escala.sente-se também a leve acidez presente em ameixas vermelhas frescas, bem como seu dulçor característico. A cada gole, a medida que a cerveja ganha temperatura, novas nuances aparecem. Deixei-a, como recomendado em artigo postado nesse beerlog, descansando 15 minutos fora da geladeira após resfriada antes de abri-la. 350 s

tiong (3647) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Bierkompass

Vertical with Back Room (Port version) - Pours dark reddish brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma of vinous notes, berries, caramely malts, sweet syrup and wood. Taste is sweet, sticky, malty and woody with notes of berries, vinous notes, syrup and caramely toffee. Finish is sweet, syrupy and woody with hints of vinous berries. A lot more heavier and sweeter than the port version.

Excellent in all respects, fruity with prunes/dates/raisins to the fore. The alcohol is very even and balanced.

McNeillR (1092) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Dark mahogany with light ringed head. Rich dark berry and wooden nose. Firm, sticky nice sprite oxidisation and syrupy sweet and sunny towards the finish. Limey dark chocolate. Syrupy, tight and peppercorn crunch linger. Really nice, can’t be bad without a bit of age.

Bottle, Cheers BENNY BOY, November Tasting.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Caramel, brown sugary, some wood, and dark fruits. Lighter vinous quality in the tastes. On the sweeter side ... a enjoyable sipper.

Bottle. Very dark amber, brickish highlights, low golden head. Sweet malty aroma, burnt sugars abound, dark fruits. Sticky, sweet, richly malty palate with flavours of molasses, brown sugar, dates, toast. Lip smackingly sweet sipper with enormous depth of flavour. Loved it.
