COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

bartzluke (216) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
3 oz pour into a stemmed tasting glass from tap at the brewery in Portland. Black, opaque, no head. Very creamy and full bodied. Great body. Nose is sweet. Smoke, dark malt, molasses, a little booze. Taste is syrupy. A little molasses, leather, a little smoke, lots of woodiness, bourbon notes. Some booziness, but not as much as I’d expect for the size. Delicious. A great combination of creaminess, maltiness, and flavorfulness.

Bottle, but I thought I had this before. Dark pour, flat. Dark Malts, fruits, spices, oak and alcohol tones. Flavors are strong, malty, fruit, sweet, boozy.

kermis (6605) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy dark brown with no head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, molasses, soy, toffee, overripe dark fruits and booze. Flavour is light heavy sweet. Weird mouthfeel, it seems thick and watery at the same time. Medium bodied with completely flat carbonation.

Zakoon (190) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2015
355ml bottle enjoyed @ home, 2014 bottle. Thanks to douglas88. Pours dark and muddy brown with absolutely no head. Aroma is caramel, bread, dark fruits, booze, leather, wood, prunes and raisins. Flavour is sweet and light bitter, Full bodied, no carbonation at all and I don’t mind. Finish is very decadent and long. I like all the subtle flavours, very complex.

dresden (1111) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Am I the first to mention no carbonation? No? Well I kind of like it that way. Big oak and bourbon aroma, soy, figs and dark fruit. Hot alcohol heat, first so made me think of chilis actually. Fruity and lots of wood. Very very nice.

ineedbeer (1095) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 11, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz 2014 vintage bottle. Aroma has a rich dark caramel and toffee notes. Medium light chocolate and light roast. Hints of toasted bread and nuts. Moderate dark fruit notes of raisin, fig and prune with a bit of plum and berry. Medium oak notes and hints of soy. Pours a murky mud brown with absolutely no head. No lacing and moderate legs. Flavor has a medium sweetness with a lot of dark caramel and toffee. Moderately strong oak notes also present with hints of vanilla, coconut and almond. A light chocolate and soy note. Medium light tobacco and leather. Moderate raisin, prune and plums. Oak tannins are a bit harsh. Medium light alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied with absolutely no carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but the lack of carbonation really hurts it. Lots of oak character that works well with the malt but the oak tannins detract from the beer. I don?t know how it would age though as I bet the soy sauce character would creep in and overwhelm.

stoutnick (698) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2015
2014 bottle. Dark mahogany coloured pour, no carbonation. Aroma is bourbon oak, port, dates. Taste is the same with a vanilla sweet quality, some marshmallow, great oak finish. Thin no carbonation which means more port like on palate than beery. Great beer but not quite as good as Matt!

KyotoLefty (7339) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Nose of bourbon, smoke, chocolate, caramel. Cloudy brown, flat. Flavor is oxidized oak, chocolate, port. Oily and flat, needs carbonation. Very tasty, rich and woody but the flatness doesn’t work.
