Thanks to the kind soul who shared this at a recent Tampa tasting. Pours a brown amber with red highlights and a tan head. Nose is candy sugar, sweet grapes, sweet malt, and light pepper. Flavor follows the nose nicely. Mild booziness and lingering sweetness into the finish. Interesting beer.

Bottle thanks to angrypirate06 (best before 10.08.13). Pours with a deep brown hued body, not quite black, with a tan head that has medium retention. Aromas are quite boozy, dates, dark fruit, lightly spicy, roasty, figs, chocolate, dry and estery. Flavors are kind of sweet, a bit of wet dog, boozy, sticky marmalade, very warming, fruity esters, dried fruits, dates, ripe plums, estery. Very warming, dry finish with lively carbonation.

Black brew with very little head. Has sweet fruitish smell with some alcohol. Taste is simular but with a very sweet chocolate maltiness to it and some hints of a banana flavor. The slight alcohol burn really goes well with this cold day. Hope the store has more because I want to save some for January when it gets really cold.

Wow- amazing smell, like pancake syrup and toast jelly and molasses. Has a bite but so smooth. Shared a couple of bottles and felt good afterwards.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of dark fruits, some booze, sweet malts, and slight roast. Flavors match up pretty well but not as sweet as one might think. A little hot and boozey with fruity notes. Not bad.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured an almost transparent black color with some tan whisps for a head. Light medium carbonation, aroma of bootleg hooch that my grandfather, pops, and myself make (but with less potency, and easier on the wallet than this), vanilla, and some dark fruit- but that last one is real down there- it’s easy not to spot with all the booze. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is lost with booze everywhere, fruit comes and goes away in a hurried rush, finish is hot. Quad for a yuppie beer bitch perhaps. Yet another BETA TEST BEER that I had to drop about ten bucks for a 4 pack for, yippy!!! At least this beer reminds me of a conversation I had with a co-worker- they were telling me about some place downtown that had the greatest burger ever made, but you had to sit at the bar to get it, not at a table. Even if you were ten feet away from the bar. I told him I would whip out my cock, pronounce this place not worthy of it, leave, and let the legend grow. He had no words for that. Been happening alot lately...
