Bottle shared at the Rate Beer European Summer Gathering on 09/08/14. From slightly brief notes…Pours dark brown. Big sticky dark fruit aroma. Soy, treacle, chic, coffee... There’s a dryness to it despite the stickiness. It’s OK.

TimE (4835) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2014
Pitch black color. Very dark brown head that disappaites fairly quickly. The nose is huge with massive brownie and chocolate fudge notes jumping out. Charcoal hints with a touch of burning bourbon is behind it. A bit boozy in the nose. The mouth is heavenly. Thick, but not cloying, tons of dark chocolate dark fruit, with a touch of bourbon and vanilla. However the bourbon and vanilla really shine at the end, an almost reversal of the nose with chocolate playing a significant but not dominate part. It’s boozy pretty much from beginning to end, which is amazing given that I am drinking this in 2014 and one of the beers used, Mackmyra Jubileum is from 2009. Honestly the booziness is so pronounced it distracts a bit at the end. It’s hard to know when this beer would peak, but otherwise the flavors have melded pretty well together. Overall very enjoyable, but not a masterpiece.
