Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Not much head produced, some beige bubbles though, clear, dark brown body underneath. The booze on the nose is sure present, but it just fills out the blanks, if any, left by the caramel, vanilla, oxidation, dried fruits, hints of chocolate and coffee and oxidation. The alcohol is much more evident in the flavor, sort of pushing, but far from annoying. Oxidation hints, some vanilla and a good dash of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied, warming and low on carbonation. Long, warming finish. A really nice beer, not sure if it deserves a top 50 rating, but itís sure nice. 110819

Entered to celebrate my 7900th Rating. Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Pours cloudy amber with a small off white head. Bourbon, dark fruit , caramel and vanilla. So uffin complex. Kahlua, coffee and sweet milk - just much more complex. This is amazing. Sippable...

Leighton (13513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle at The Others Tasting, London - many thanks to Paul for providing this one. Pours lightly murky red-brown with pretty much no head. Nose of alcohol, ripe fruits, meat and sugary bread. Big sweet flavor, fairly boozy, with light earth, brown bread, some medicinal qualities, plums. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a chewy mouthfeel. Hot finish with some syrupy caramel, rich bread, dry toffee and light dirt. Somewhat tasty. Itís not a graceful beer - at all - but there are some novel elements to it.

brokensail (12479) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a murky dark brown color with a small layer of off-white/kahki head. S: Smells like big time -bals. Tongs of bourbon and vanilla with a touch of oak. Lots of great dark fruits like raisins and dates, brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. A touch of sherry in there as well. T: Damn this is delicious. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and plenty of vanilla. Lots of bourbon, a bit of oak, maybe even some coconut in there too. A nice chocolatey oxidation to it and some more of the sherry flavor. M: The body is medium to full with a smooth and sufficient carbonation. D: Itís kind of boozy, but damn is this stuff is tasty. I could drink a bottle of this almost any day.
