4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, thnx to NorCalGrowler, shared with friends. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head that settles into a small ring. Looks very daunting. Aroma is madeira, port, caramel, fudge and vanilla. Some oak characters still lingering on in the background, but the port and madeira are taking over the palate in a good way. Flavor is incredibly sweet and has again a big load of madeira in there. Some bourbon and oak flavors in the background again, but you can definitely tell that this beer has age on it, and it has aged very well. Very complex and balanced and a true treat to drink this stuff. Amazing!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a light frothy head. The aroma is big creamy caramel fudge roasted malt alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a smooth boozy alcohol bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation and an oily texture. This is a super smooth, flavour packed whale of a beer where the higher ABV really adds to this beer which isn’t always the case. Taste it if you can and i’m sorry for you you guys that can’t.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 750ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Syruppy sweet aroma and taste. There’s some mintiness to the aroma too, and it presses my hedonism button. I wouldn’t normally like a sugar-bomb like this, but they just about got away with it.
