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.

A dark brown ale with almost no head. In aroma, plum, molasses, wood extract, soy sauce, woody and fragrant. In mouth, a viscous maple insanity, with licorice, warming alcohol, dark mashed fruits, extreme but good, but also difficult. Bottle at Mondial 2011, June 9, 2011.

Bov (10204) - 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 (9999) - 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.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Bottle... Muddy dark brown ale with a small, khaki head. Smells like prune juice and bourbon with an afterthought of wood. Boozy, sweet flavor with lots of dark fruit; mainly dried plum followed by tangy sour mash. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes sweet with plenty of alcohol warmth. Nice!
