12oz bottle, thanks to FlandersNed. Last bottle of a long bottle share at my house... Dark brown, red color. Mostly hazy. Thin, minimal off-white head. Minimal dots of lace. Lots of caramel malt in the nose, dark fruit. Bigger body. Smooth, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, especially for the ABV, a bit of a bite, some moderate to bigger sweetness, not very pleasant. Not very pleasant at all right now. Caramel malt and chocolate is a bit prominent right now, not very pleasant. Overall, just OK, and a bit tart. WTF? Not good. More I try, the more repulsive it gets. Lightly tart also. Not pleasant.

Bottle at Port Street Beer House; dark burgundy red pour with zero head, sweet and meaty aroma, very sweet taste like treacle, but surprisingly light mouthfeel, a real sipper.

Bottle at home, courtesy of Matt. Thanks Man! Pour is deep brown sugar with a frothy tan-colored head and good lacing. Cereal, corn flakes, dark fruits, caramel, big bready, somewhat spicy, earthy, grainy, and raisins in the aroma. Taste is big caramel, brown sugar, raisins, figs, dark fruits, somewhat tangy, bready, herbal, and toffee with a hint of alcohol on the backside - though not overbearing. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Decent doppelbock.

A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with treacle, plums, interesting. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, very very smooth. On tap at Beer Authority.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - DEC 26, 2013
A ruby body with a minimal tan head. Seemed watery and lacked carbonation. Aroma was a mix of fruity esters, some alcohol and mild caramel malts. Flavor seemed to be very tart and the alcohol was almost booze like. Not a good balance of flavors. A thin mouth feel and a boozy finish.

Color caramelo oscuro y sin filtrar. sin espuma. Aromas de caramelo, fruta confitada y licor. En boca es sedosa con densidad media. El inicioves dulce con un final ligeramente ácido, todo ello muy afrutado, incluido el regusto. Buen postre.

12oz 2011 extra received from Lymph a while back in a pretty awesome trade!! Big props to Robert... Very generous guy. Pours a hazy mahogany... very little head and no real cap or lacing... Pours thick like a watered down Aunt Jemima... Should be much clearer and have some sort of head on it. Wow... This smells like a doppelbock on steroids. Boozy dark malt with rum soaked fruit.. plum and raisin... Incredibly rich. Flavor is very rich, but not on the same playing field as the nose.. a bit fruity like an English Old Ale.. dark sorta cherry/orange essence (odd, I know) along with a slight chocolate element not present in the aroma... EtOH and brown sugar on the finish... a little oxidation reminds me of tawny port. Flavor is thick and mildly syrupy... actually close to tawny port :-) but with some very minor carbonation. Pretty proper... HUGE, but proper. I truly appreciate it Robert... Thanks buddy.

fiammanghilla (827) - Genova, ITALY - SEP 30, 2013
Bottiglia 355ml ordinata su domus birrae e bevuta a casa. Ambrata scurissima con schiuma evanescente. Frutta matura e alcol al naso. In bocca tantissimo corpo, oleosa, carbonazione fine. Malatata, amara e complessa, sentori di frutta matura, finale eterno e pieno di sfumature. Un nettare.
