COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle at the BTBF. The look is brownish in color, tawny, and has a beige colored head. The smell is alcohol, sort hot, wood, rich, sugar, raisans, char, and nice. The taste is brown sugar, alcohol, burns, nice, sweet, wood, prunes, complex. Nice but could sit a little longer.

Lectvay (112) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Medium-dark brown with a light, ephemeral head. Aroma and taste are so inviting and enticing. Dark molasses, brandy, caramel. An astounding beer. It went by quickly, and I was sad when it was gone.

MadIndian (2343) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle. Awesome notes of Brandy, wood, chocolate, dark fruit and toffee. Finish was sweet alcohol. The high alcohol content was blended well with the toffee.

Bacterial (1402) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle shared by Greg - thanks!! Dark amber pour. Big toffee and dark fruit nose and again in the taste. Lots of raisin. Lots of smooth booze in the finish. Really nice.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown pour, no carbonation and an aroma of strong raisins & whiskey. Flavor is nice meld of maple syrup, more alcoholic raisins, caramel and warming on the finish. Very good, and worth the steep price.

Damn, that’s good. And strong. Toffee, caramel, chocolate, dates, figs and no shortage of brandy.

’11 vintage, 15.2%. Thanks huhzubendah! Pours a dark brown with nearly no head and light lacing. Aroma is wood, vanilla, brandy booze and coconut. Flavor is complex: coconut, dark fruits, and brandy sweetness. Complexity intensifies as it warms. World class.

rxeight (1218) - Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
2011 old stock bottled 10/31/13. Aroma is brandy with some alcohol at the end. Taste is amazing. Brandy raspberry dark fruit. A little less carbonated than I like but a nice full thick smooth body. Pretty damn good stuff.

stoutnick (451) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 2011 bottle from Jersey City, NJ. Very deep butterscotch appearance. Aroma is lovely caramel tones. Taste is the same rich flavours with a brandy spirit finish. Very delicious. Alcohol bite on finish, which is understandable given the 15%; sticky finish. Best caramel heavy ale I have yet had - great brew.

burg326 (3543) - Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of toffee, caramel, malt, and brandy. Flavors followed suit, huge brandy in the flavor and aftertaste, would be better once it mellowed.
