2010 Vintage. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead Glass at 45 Degrees F.

A - Dark brown. Almost plum or blueberry appearance when held against the light. Absolutely no head and fantastic alcohol runners on the glass swirl.

S - bourbon, oak and smoked malts.

T - Huge tobacco taste, licorice, hints of vanilla, bourbon, oak, roasted malts.

M - No carbonation at all, big body, dry and lingering bits of bourbon

O - I keep trying Old ales and keep being very disappointed with them. This was no exception to that rule. Too boozy, to must musty like eating the dust on an old leather bound dictionary that hasnít been touched for a decade. Itís like spending the day in a morgue. Just very bad taste in my mouth...and unfortunately...drain pour on the last half.

2010. Thanks pete! Huge Beer. Apricot, candy floss, bourbon, whisky, tar and smoke on the nose. Rich taste - Raisins, bourbon, ash, candi sugar. Not a long finish. Hides 13.5 well, although alcool heat present as it warms.Very good, just missing the length and depth of the great BWs and OAs.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle. Poured a medium colored brown, with a small off-white/tan head. Aroma was dark, dried fruits with notes of bourbon and oak. Flavor was full of alcohol booze, but was enjoyable enough due to the bourbon notes, the toffee, the caramel, and the dried fruits. Enjoyable.

2011 Bottle picked up at the source, and sampled immediately after regular 4th Dementia. Pours a dark brown, but not as dark as regular 4th Dem. a little bit of khaki head that becomes an instantaneous ring around the glass. A couple spot of lacing, unlike itís father. Smell is sooooo damn complex. Vanilla, bananas, plumbs, raisins, fig, wood (oak I assume), sugar, whiskey of some sort. Tastes sweet and boozy, dark fruit, soft on the tongue, with a little bite. I think I like this better than the OG.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 2010 Bottle. Muddy and dark amber in appearance with a small beige head. Aroma is of overripe fruits, bourbon, walnuts, and oak. Flavor is extremely boozy even though its been aging for two years. Malts dominate it - toffee, caramel, ripe dates, licorice. Very viscous/oily with little carbonation. Some slight bitterness in the finish.

jhamp9 (1685) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours dark brown with a few bubbles for a head. Strong aroma of molasses, bourbon, vanilla, and wood. Taste is similar with a lot of sweetness and alcohol on the finish. Full body and sticky on the palate with a nice warming on the way down. Very good.

Bottle thanks to rogee64 . Pours a very dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of bourbon, wood, caramel, chocolate, raisins, coconut. Taste is sweet, with more bourbon and dark fruit flavors, just a little alcohol. Dry woody, alcoholic finish. This beer is incredibly smooth, buttery even. Very full bodied, soft carbonation.

On draft at kuhnhenn served in a snifter. Aroma is just booze and malt, as it warmed up the smell became extremely complex, notes of dark fruit and a delightful whiff of bourbon. Taste was breath taking, for such a high abv beer it drank extremely smooth. As you would expect, very chewy, love this beer.
