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.

Dark, opaque brew, with a small tan head that dissipates quickly - looks a bit like a really dark Belgian quad. Smells metallic, caramel sweet, figs, raisins, spices. The taste follows on the same notes, figs, dark chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, spices and alcohol. Very smooth mouthfeel with a small but noticeable level of carbonation. Warm aftertaste.

Kind of smokey woody smell. Taste is pretty much the same. Low carbonation, full body, and no foam.
