Bottle. Ahhhhh….! This is a beauty in every thinkable way. Pours dark with a red hue and with no head at all. Fabulous aroma with sweet prunes, dark fruits, molasses and oak, as well as chocolate and some pleasant whiffs of liquorice and alcohol. Body is oily, soft and velvety without carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts and caramel, as well as liquorice, coffee and chocolate and nice sweet barrels of oak with vanilla and molasses making for an excellently sweetly balanced finish sticking forever. What an exceptional brew!

rayOfBeer (672) - El Cerrito, California, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle: dark brown-black with thin off-white head. Aroma is boozy bourbon with brown sugar and molasses. Flavor has a lot a of chocolate, sweet caramel, bourbon, and barrel notes with a boozy kick. Big overall beer with lots of flavor which could use some aging to settle. More/better flavor comes out as it warm. Still a great beer.

Pours very dark, with a small tan head. Buttery, boozy, wood aromas up front, lead to a smooth caramel, sweet cocoa, toffee taste on medium to full bodied palate. Excellent.

<I>From bottle : </I> Pours a very dark brown, not really able to see through...Small brown head. The aroma is strong in alcohol, but also strong in oak and vanilla. But when you go to taste it, almost all of the alcohol disappears. It goes down so smooth. The taste is light and sweet. The finish is pleasant as well. I truly understand why reputation of this brew is what it is. Fantastic.
