Ibrew2or3 (7230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2015
37.5 Cl bottle pours with a crystal clear deep copper body that supports a nice tan head of foam. The aroma offers up big sweet malty sweetness, sticky brown sugar coated sun warmed smashed prunes and dates with restrained boozy heat at the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth, slick and luscious where sugary sweet malts mingle with molasses, prunes, dates and honey. It gains a nectar richness midway and then slides into a modestly boozy finish that feels like 9% rather than 19. Another great sipper.

freretoc (934) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 17, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl chez Will, couleur blonde avec pointe ambrée peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une forte attaque sur l’alcool et le bois au nez. En bouche début sur la noix trop prégnante. Continuité sur l’alcool très fort. On a l’impression de boire un vin oxydé à l’extrême avec beaucoup trop d’alcool.

bhensonb (11800) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours copper with a near-white head. Aroma indeed is somewhat roasty/toasty, and it smacks of brown sugar. Ahint of wood. Near full bodied. Flavor is oaky, mallty, treacle. Heat is present, but not very. Nice sipper.

marcus (6988) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper woth a nice beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied sweet molasses flavor wirh a smooth oak finish, but a more harsh alcohol finish. Quite delicious.

Lore (1308) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 2, 2015
very hazy orange to light amber colour, practically no head; aroma of spicy alcohol, herbs, wood, caramel, as well as raisin notes; taste is the same with salty notes and highly alcoholic spicy aftertaste; ok, this high ABV is really too much for a beer - even for a Baley Wine

Renobob (1022) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Nez boisé. Au palais, alcool, vanille, bois, pointe de sucre. Équilibre quasi parfait, concentration d'alcool assez prégnante presque trop d'ailleurs. Beau produit mais difficile d'accès.

S_Side_Smitty (530) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours cloudy orange-brown with a small white head. Aroma is carob, malted grains and light molasses. Taste is sweet malts up front with an interesting vanilla-oak-red grapefruit-like mid. Finish has that acidic citrusy tang. 19% ABV is hidden well. A little on the sweet side, but nice overall.

Tmoney99 (11359) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark earthy, herbal and small alcohol aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

markextrae (1397) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Shared bottle. Poured a clear Amber colour with a small white ring. Aroma of oak, vanilla, nuts, barley, smells like a strong wine. Plums, butter, raisins, Some fruits, very fruity oaky mouthfeel. Real strong alcohol burn. It’s a bit to hot!
