Pours a dark clear mahogany with an off white ring of head that quickly disappears. Awesome aromas of caramel, figs, dates and malt. Tastes about the same with an intense kick from the alcohol. Long warm finish. Good unique brew.

Bottle 2009 vintage poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of toffee, molasses and dried fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, molasses, dried fruit and light earthiness with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is caramel, roast, vanilla. Thick mouth, strong dark fruit, toffee, vanilla, light roast, nice booze finish, really enjoyed this.

Fritz123 (1533) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Poured into a snifter at home. Almost no head and no lacing. The aroma is BIG caramel, toffee, brown sugar, cookie dough, sugar plums, prunes, raisins. Taste is big cookie sweetness dark overripe fruits, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and dark candies. Mild barrel aging and barrel flavors. Thick and chewy. Is it supposed to have ZERO carb? Some old ales have some. This one is flat as a pancake. Overall flavors are delicious.

Had this many times over the years, might as well rate it seeing as u had a really fantastic bottle last night at Scott’s .. . Deep caramel, burnt toffee, mild booze, and sherry eyes .. . Rich and boozy, but soft like the last morsel .. Legit beer .. . . When my boss gets mad, he throws things. Last week he destroyed a phone and a calculator..

This bottle is a nicely aged 2012 so the ABV may actually be a bit more. Nice dark plumb pour with pretty much no head. Bozzy rich scent. Plumb and prune, other fruits, caramel and more. A bit sticky. Lots of roasted stuff going on in the mouth. Raisin. Sweets, lots of caramel, lots. Maybe even butterscotch. Sweet. Reminds me of a Barley Wine. Very well balanced. A flavour journey. Really nice.

Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningens julölsprovning 2014. Smak och doft av torkad frukt, marsipan, vanilj, smör, nötter, trä, choklad, fikon, bourbon. Välbalanserad, rund och len, fruktig, så välgjort och komplext, alkoholen väl dold. Mycket gott!

Bottle via Alex R. Pours a dark brownish black, slightly translucent. Aroma slightly chocolatey roasty, toffee. Body smooth and rich, with a latent sweetness.
