Big thanks to jale for this one. Served in a snifter. Lots of dark fruit and sugar. Not too much booze. Some caramel. Pretty thick and chewy. Über sweet.

"A world different from the horrid Sam Adams TB. Very sugary sweet, and fairly alcoholic, but made for a pretty nice sipper. Honey, sweet malts, fudge up front and center."

ej (722) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle 2011. Pours a thick and hazy looking dark coppery brownish, producing a small short lived head. Vinous aroma with toasted bread, lightly roasted malts, dates and raisins. Taste is quite similar; vinous notes with a light roastyness, dried fruits and a whiff of alcohol. Very softly carbonated but pretty slick and full bodied. Feels like a mix of mead and doppelbock really.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, Domus Birrae, Roma. Shared with Slothez, Superbowl session. Poured a deep dark reddy brown with a small fading beige head. Beak had notes of dark bread, malts, brown sugar booze and dark fruits. Taste was sweet malts, dark fruits and booze. Thinnish mouthfeel with limited carbonation. Pretty forgettable overall and the inflated price made it all the more disappointing. Expected more.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Tap sample at CBC 2014. Dark clear red-hued amber body, medium creamy off-white head, looking great. Nose is sweet deep caramel tones, vanilla, honey, mild burnt sugar notes and hints of muscovado sugar and red berries. Taste is sweet berry-like caramel tones, vanilla, burnt sugar and hints of honey and melon. Full body, medium carbonation. Quite sweet, but for a sweet (beer) tooth like me this is aaall right. :-)

[5/3/14] Draught sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. 4th session. Amber. Alcoholic aroma, candy-ish, with malt, caramel, marzipan and some fruits. Sickly sweet flavor, alcoholic, malty, caramelly and candy-ish. Really not my thing.

Lilja (1653) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Smak och doft av malt, honung, röda bär, karamell, sirap, honung, farinsocker, nypon. Stor men lagom sötma. Välblanserad och mycket god.
