2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
29/01/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (12.7oz, 2008 vintage bottle). Miele di castagno, intensa, riflessi bordeaux, schiuma assente. Al naso sentori di vaniglia, note di ciliegie e di vino fortificato, una netta nota acetica che pian piano prende il sopravvento su tutto. In bocca è disastrosa, acetica, sempre di più col passare del tempo, legnosa e astringente, asfalta il palato. Corpo pieno, carbonazione quasi assente. Peccato averla provata in condizioni pessime.

2008 vintage bottle pour split along side with the current Angels Share. Thanks again T for making this happen. Pours black with a thin tan head that will stick around. Sweet graham cracker, marshmallow like aroma. Super sweet flavor. Very smooth flavor all the way through. Just a solid, heavy big league beer all around. Really enjoy the Angels share beers, and actually liked this one a little better than the regular. Great stuff.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
