Bottle from Jrallen74, thanks!! Deep dark brown color. Dried fruit, raisin, hints of oak and plums in the aroma. Malty, very sweet flavor. Warming alcohol. Poro. Bourbon barrels. Dried red fruit. Plums and licorice. Full bodied, thick and sticky on the tongue. Oak and subdued hops compensate the sugary sweetness.

Scopey (11797) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2013
2010 (bottle acquired via trade) at THE others tasting. It pours deep red-brown with a limited beige head. The nose is meaty, oxo cubes, beef, wood, earth, toasted coconut, hint of bourbon, faint blue cheese and some alcohol warmth. The taste is wood, meaty, earth, big alcohol warmth, bourbon, sticky dark fruit, caramel, dark chocolate and varnish, with a dry, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Nice depth of flavour, but the alcohol warmth spoils it for me.

Bov (11698) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 28, 2012
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark brown beer with no head retention; strong aroma of prune and cane sugar; very sweet; moderate carbonaton; full-bodied and gently sticky; residual sweetness and a long aftertaste of prunes with strong warming alcohol notes - out of balance and deeply overrated imho

Drake (11500) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Two bottles, 2010 and 2011 vintages, tried side by side. From two generous traders, but sadly I cannot remember who sent them my way. :( Thanks to whomever you are.

2010 vintage. Pours a turgid brown color with a thin creamy tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of huge toffee, notes, caramel, wood, very mild whiskey and dark fruits. The taste is cherries, stone fruits, toffee, caramel, burnt sugar, toasted wood, mild whiskey, mild hops. Full bodied, slightly chewy, low carbonation, quite boozy. Nice. 7/3/8/3/15/3.6

2011 vintage pours a turgid brown color with a very thin tan collar of head. Aroma of raisin, toffee, wood, whiskey, umami. The taste is toffee, wood, salty notes, currants, bourbon and a bit of chocolate. Full bodied, very hot, low carbonation, somewhat chewy. 6/3/6/3/13

The 2010 version is much better balanced, smoother, less harsh.
