Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, 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.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Almost black with a red hue, thin film of tan head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, molasses, thick raisins, malt, black pepper, rich spicy oak, a blurry vanilla substance. Taste is rich but not boozy, with tons of oaky sweetness, sticky burnt caramel, coffee, toasted malts, and raisiny dried fruits. Very delicious and warming. Not very long duration, but otherwise a nice palate.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
2014-11-20. Very dark brown body is nearly black with a tiny, fast fading brown head. 3+ Aroma is rich, moderately alcoholic, dark malt, leathery, sweet port like wine character. 7++ Flavour is similarly rich, sweet dark malt core, plums and dried dark fruit, prunes, sweet rich yet delicate port character. Surprisingly moderate alcohol character considering the strength. Smooth medium to full bodied palate is uncarbonated. Rich, and quite tasty but just a touch heavy for me today. I suspect I might add a point or two in a different mood. Bottle via trade with Duffman
