Ferris (7970) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle - Alcohol, licorice, molasses, dark roast and sweet dark fruit barrel notes. Jet brown with a thin rich light brown head. Molasses, soy, licorice and chocolate. Finishes nice and sweet with a bit of barrel and burn on the throat. Great oily mouth feel and everything in balance. A bit darker in look and flavor, but still really good. This is much better than the back room.

blackish brown pour, minimal white head. Gorgeous aroma of raisins, brown sugar, oak, dark rum soaked fruit...very enticing. Taste - Light carbonaton, raisins, brown sugar, slight heat, sweet (caramelized sugar) boozy finish. Rich, refined, a real sipper for sure!

Brown, hazy liquid, small beige head. Vineous sweet aroma, hints of higher alcohols. Rich and very smooth, sweet taste and moutfeel with some warming alcohol. Leaves a slight burning sensation. Pretty great.

11.2 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark caramel malts, dark fruits, wood, a hint of smoke, sweeter barrel notes I can assume came from the Malaga. This is solid and tasty.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a translucent darker brown with very thin light beige lacing. Smells good too; sweet and malty with notes of oak, vanilla, and a touch of earthiness. Tastes like it smells with notes of raisin and a nice, sweet, slightly vinous mouthfeel. Good beer!

Cervesa molt fosca amb poca presència d’escuma, tant en nas com en boca es nota molt la fusta. Cerveza muy oscura con poca presencia de espuma, tanto en olfato como en gusto se nota mucho la madera.

Fritz123 (1346) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Poured into a Tulip at the hotel. Big, dark brown, thick, oily, and completely opaque pour with a small head. Slick look to it. The aroma is big with lots of breads both light and dark, cereal grains, pumpernickel, caramel, currants, figs, and prunes. The taste is up front on the bread bomb with dark breads, grains, caramel malts, vanilla, and then the fruit comes into play with figs and prunes mainly. Big thick mouth and oily. Coats your tongue with flavors. Low to moderate carb. Great as it warms. Very nicely done. Slightly dry and bitter finish.

oh6gdx (22834) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Bottled. Deep ambery brown colour with a small off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is chocolate, some sweet malts, toffee, mild wooden notes as well as some ripe fruit and Madeira wine. Flavour is rather sweet with ripe fruits and berries, toffee as well as some mild alcohol and a bit wooden notes. Wellbalanced and quite tasty.

Tmoney99 (12035) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy brown color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, chocolate and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of long duration. This is was a standout beer.

Bottle from Hop City Birmingham. Pours hazy brown with no head. Bits of stuff floating in the beer. Aroma is very sweet and boozy. You can definitely smell the wine. Tastes of a sweet red wine, with lots of booze. Medium bodied and little carbonation. Very unique
