Pours a deep mahogany umber color with some of that dull Ive been in a barrel chillin haze on the edges and a finger of khaki foam. The nose is complex with sweet undertones but so much nuanced complexity that I can just blurt out things like fonzies’ leather jacket, worn dusty parquet squares from the Boston Garden thats been aging in Johnny Most’s basement and were stained with Makers Mark bourbon that Tommy Heinsohn spilled during pregame commentary....but I digress. This beer is legit. On the sip Im taken to another level of beer that usually requires some gentle fondling and a trip to the confessional for going to devilish lengths in order to achieve beer geek status and sip, but really this bottle was just sitting on a shelf and Im gonna go back tomorrow and buy some more. Fucking liquid velvet, creamy, masculine, old man pipe smoke, grandmas butterscotch candies, serious brew.

IPAgutten79 (750) - Skui, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
Mørk, nesten svart. Null skum. Aromaen er vanilje, fiken(?), karamell/toffee og malt. Smaken er søt, med deilig vanilje, mørk tørket frukt, bourbon og toffee. Søt, med antydninger til surhet i ettersmaken. Tykk og klissete konsistens.

Aroma is malts/burnt caramel and undercurrents of toffee and fruit. The flavor is caramel, toffee, fruit, slightly cloying and a sourish/alcoholic finish.

Theydon_Bois (12592) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session I, 01/05/2015. Extremely dark mahogany brown with decent tan spotting and edgework. Nose is rich malt, dark fruit, spice, dates, dates, bourbon strains, fruit cake. Taste comprises dark malt, light spice, wooded notes, prunes, dates. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with bourbon evident and lightly warming alcohol. Decent barley wine, good balance, holds together well.

Linkiewitz (56) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 8, 2015
AROMAT: Słodki zapach whisky, wraz ze śliwkami, a po zamieszaniu ogromne ilości czekolady. WYGLĄD: Klarowne, o czarnej barwie i braku piany. SMAK: Mnogość owoców leśnych i delikatna, prawie nie wyczuwalna paloność. Dalej karmelowa słodycz, nadal owoce i posmak piwnego syropu. A wszystko w prawie samej słodowości ze wspaniale ukrytym alkoholem. Niezwykle deserowe na niezwykłe okazje.

Bottle at KØ15. Good vanilla aroma. Black colour. Hazy golden colour. Small light brown head. The flavour has a lot of vanilla. Quite alcoholic but good. Creamy with more vanilla.

nimbleprop (5798) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2015
12oz bottle pours a murky, deep amber with zero head. Nose has quite a bit of booze, vanilla, caramel, nougat, a little tooth paste, some honey comb, candy. All sweet in the nose. Flavor has some oily wood notes, some astringent alcohol notes, lots of caramel though, vanilla, butterscotch, toffee, nougat, some honey, a little caramelized tropical fruit. Very full bodied, sticky finish. Smooth despite the alcohol. A bit heavy, but a treat none the less.
