Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
2009 vintage. A hazed brown scotch ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, molasses, light soy sauce, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, plums, molasses, licorice, floral hops and alcohol warmth, 4 years old and still going strong. OttBottShare Dec 15 2013.

lesifflebiere (1645) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Bouteille vieillie environ 18 mois. Brune opaque avec une mousse couleur érable, odeurs de raisins, de dattes, de cerises. Au goût, miel, raisins, cerises encore, avec des grains cuits mais non rôtis ; un peu de madérisation détectée, et elle semble plus mince que la version originale fraîche. En ne tenant pas compte de son âge (ce qui ne l’a pas aidé ici, franchement), elle est savoureuse et complexe, mais le caramel et le velouté de l’originale ne se retrouve pas ici, totalement envahie par les arômes fruités, et par le fait même un peu plus linéaire et moins impressionnante.

De couleur acajou avec un col mousseux qui se pointe à reculons et envoie son voile la représenter. Une dentelle de type Braille se dessine, il n’y a que des picots de mousse. Des arômes de caramel, de tourbière, de miel ambré, avec des pointes boisées et des senteurs de cuir en émanent. Le goût est semblable, à plus faible intensité, alors que l’alcool vient prendre la relève. Texture soyeuse, veloutée, qui nous caresse le gosier. Ça m’apparaît comme un produit réussi, raffiné.

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Dark amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot of dark fruit, peat malt, toffee, honey and oak. The flavor is a little bit different. I really like the dark fruit notes (cherries and grapes) as well as the toffee, honey and oak. There is also a bit of smoke and peat malt as well as some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle marked that it was aged in casks for for months. Long ago trade. Pours with a medium clarity, mahogany hued brown body with a lasting, firm off-white head. Great lace and retention. Aromas are of mejool dates, caramel, armagnac, brown sugar and toffee. Medium esters of stewed pears, some oak, vanillin, candied walnuts, cola. soot, and port. Well refined, but with a slightly disappointingly low barrel character (I want a bit more barrel in the aroma). Flavors are of cotton candy, low but definitely noticeable diacetyl, toasted coconut and raw coconut, barrel, brown sugar, alcohol, suntan lotion, raisins and figs. Alcohol is quite mild, warming, fuller body, light oxidation, medium-low carbonation. I find myself looking for more barrel character (both flavor and tannin).
