Light brown creamy head. Brown colour. Aroma is malty with red and dark fruity (cherries and blackberries) and wooden notes. Flavor is malty too with dark fruits and tobacco and licorice tones, ending in a fruity and slightly dry finish. Full bodied.

Draft 2013 vintage at Brouwers for their anniversary. Very dark pour with a swirl fizz head. Smokey caramel malt aroma. Such intriguing flavor here. Just enough smoke to keep you coming back for more, and not enough to overpower the remining malt bill. Semi sweet caramel with the smoke to balance. Soft smoke finish. I would love to pair this beer with a fine cigar. It does plenty by itself. Most.excellent beer here.

Tap at brewery. 12oz tulip. Coffee brown red color with medium small white head. Sugary nose, really nice. Light chocolate, light toasted sugar, amazing finish. Mouthfeel is luscious. The balance is perfect and might have one of the best lingering tastes of any beer. As it warms, booziness come out more. Wow, good.

Thanks dude sharing his stash at Antioch liquors. Bourbonny and syrup. Very hoppy and slightly sweet. First beer from hair of the dog and it was awesome.

Rating #1619 - #CBC2015 Beer #4 - Welcome Reception - Pours a dark reddish brown color. thin head. Unreal aroma of ripened berries, roasted plums,chocolate, caramel. Lots of smoked malt character present, tempered with a spiciness (coriander, clove, nutmeg?). Blown away, this rivals a fine single malt in depth of character and complexity.

2003 (batch 57) drank in 2015. Dark brown mahogany color. No head. Caramel, plums, port, slightly smokey and Vegemite. The carbonation is very low. The mouth is surprisingly smokey with some oxidized notes, port and caramel. Lingering port and caramel finish. Aged amazingly. Fantastic.
