Fritz123 (1535) - 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.

dresden (1382) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Deep brown with floating pieces, but not gross looking just looks like a bad cup of instant coffee. Aroma is very boozy and slightly woody. Delicious fruity, vanilla, oak and deep caramel flavours. Incredible beer.
