LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Thanks to Mike Dash G!! Appearance: pours a dark brown with no head and no bubbles.

Aroma: Dark fruit: fig, raisin date. Apricot. Not any booze.

Taste. Dark chocolate alcohol cardboard, hazelnut, coconut.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied modest carbonation. Overall: Nothing like it was 6 years ago, obviously. I would suggest doing your "vertical" now.

wagman (14) - - NOV 23, 2011
Had during a 10-15 vertical on 11/20/11. Slightly cloudy, dark brown. Hardly any head at all. Sweet chocolate coffee smell. Really complex aroma. Tasks slightly sweet and very smooth. You can taste the alcohol come through almost like a bourbon. May be past its prime. But was still incredibly enjoyable.

651mL thanks to drowland and the Tally beer crew at Proof for sharing this rarity!. The pour is a clear, deep maroon with bubbles. No head formation. Nose is starchy, red fruits, tart berries, umami soy character, quite savory with saving graces of bourbon and maple. Taste is spicy, decent alcohol heat, mild ash and chalkiness. Big kick of alcohol in the mid. Chalk and mint in the finale. Big oxidized/minty quality. Not bad...probably not worth cellaring any longer.

11/11/11. 22oz bottle courtesy daknole. Malty old ale aroma of sorts - sweet, malty, a bit minty, some oxidation aspects, and a touch of barrel character. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, rye bread, toast, vanilla, alcohol, and a bit of barrel. Lingering roasty, bitter aspects as well. Still some booze in there... this must have been intense fresh. Nice.

Pailhead (4783) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of mild chocolate, rye bread, caramel, and a hint of oak... It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a minimal beige head. The finish starts worth moderate chocolate, caramel, and a touch of toffee. The finish has mild bourbon, a touch of coconut, and oak. Medium bodied work mild carbonation.
