HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2012
2009 vintage in the gray ceramic bottle served in a snifter. Dark brown cola pour. Surprising amount of carbonation for the age under a cork. An off white head fades quickly but a gentle swirl brings the dense, consistent foam top right back for a moment. Aroma is maple, oak, and bourbon. Itís got the same aroma as Utopias or Triple Bock. I had this in 2009 upon the release audit was a luxurious, boozy, elixir. This is still good but Iím sad to say that at this age itís lost a lot of the body and sweetness I recall from before. The flavor is more oak than beer and the palate is very thin. Alcohol heat remains but this drinks much more like a whiskey than a beer. I wish I had opened this one sooner.

thefederalist (306) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. 2013 Vintage. Pours dark ruby brown with a off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma of sweet malt, clove, raisin, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, but balanced by the enormous gravity. Hugely complex. Body is thick but not cloying. Fantastic. A world class beer.

2013, 500ml bottle. Full body, big palet. Fruits, sweets and bourbon. This beer delivers on the same notes as a very high quality portwine. Perfect with cheese.
