Very sweet and strong beer. You taste lots of alcohol and also roasted malt. Drunk it on bottle as wel from tap. I prefer this beer as closing dinner above a brandy.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 thanks bwp116. smells nutty and salty to me. hahaha. super alcoholic, super sweet, like added sugar sweet, lots of darkish fruit, so saccharine. OH God this is alcoholic. this reminds me of some beer i had at the delirium cafe. it’s improving with my adapting palate but it’s just moving the alcohol to the back end.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours muddy brown w/ a spritzy spatter froth. Minimal hang time w/ only a thin ring of residual lace. Aroma of dark fruits, german chocolate cake, and sweet butter. Full nectar w/ very little residual effers. It’s almost still, even on the palate. Nada bubble. Big sweet complex malts w/ a mild yet defined sharp tartness, almost acidic. And I do mean sweet, barleywine sweet. This brew is very complex in nature. Flavors of fat carmeled apples and kiwi fruit. Brown sugar and molases. Huge black cherries and over ripened peach meat, plumy raisins, and brown, glazed cakebread (fruitcake). The kiwi is prominant. The finish is long and sweet w/ the kiwi fruit lingering well past it’s bedtime. This is a barleywine for sure. Overall: a good specimen but you really have to be in the mood for some serious acidic tart sweetness.

Wow...this is too sweet. I thought it was a dubbel when I took a sip and wow was I shocked! Aroma was yeast and alochol. Pour was a dark dark brown with barely a head. Taste was WAY too sweet....some fruit and alcohol burn but tastes like they dumped a bag of sugar in it. It does not taste lke 11% alcohol but it is too sweet for me.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 Bottle. Clear deep copper, large fluffy white head. Deep roasetd malty and fruity aroma, with notes of yeast and earthy hops. Thick and smooth mouthfeel. Unbalanced flavour, way too much sweetness and alcohol.
