COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, caramel, vanilla with notes of fruit and malt. Finishing clean and crisp. The package is as elegant as the beer it contains: a cobalt blue bottle with platinum lettering, finished with a natural cork and sealing wax, encased in a cherry wood box. There are only 3,000 bottles of Samuel Adams Millennium, and each is signed and numbered by Koch. A bottle of Samuel Adams Millennium costs about two hundred dollars.

One of my all-time top wants; thanks to Mac for offering to split this! Dirty, murky sludge-brown color. Zero head/lace. Ugly as sin, tbh.

Boozy, liquified caramel aroma character. So much flavor on the palate: explosion of caramelized malt & unbridled complexity. Difficult to describe how fking awesome this is. Need MOAR!

shared by ygtbsm94 @RBWG-JAX Post Grand Tasting-still-hazy dk amber. A-maple/caramel-med malt. T-maple/caramel-med malt, some hop offset. Slick mouthfeel, warming on the back of the throat.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle... RBWG 2013… Pours cloudy and dark brown. The nose is a complex collection of sweet caramel, vinous port, overripe apple, dried plum and dried plum. Full-bodied and chewy with only trace carbonation. The flavor is a smooth blend of sweet caramel, boozy port wine, fruity red apple and dried plum flanked by an acrid note. Finishes boozy and sweet with fleeting notes of toffee, dried plum and brandy. I only had three white whales left prior to trying this. Thanks so much to ygtbsm94 for sharing this bottle of liquid luxury with us folks at the RBWG 2013! Only two whales left on my bucket list of beer.

Rating 5300Bottle shared by Brad during RBWG 2013. One of those beers you think you may never see and then BAM - thanks, Brad. Doubly awesome because he let Son of Gravedigger sign the box! Flat amber pour like maple syrup or rich cognac. Lots on the aroma, a booze kick, lots of caramel, toasted nuts, butterscotch, deep, dark fruits, and more. Rich flavor, some booze, rich caramel, butterscotch, nutty, fruity, and more caramel, touches of vanilla. A nice treat - thanks again, Brad!

Bottle shared by a friend for his 50th birthday. Cloudy brown in color with no head and sticky legs. Aroma of malt, cognac, cherry, tawny port and maple syrup. Malty and caramelly flavor with maple syrup and cherries before a sweet, warming cognac finish.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing bottle #1593/3000 during his 50th birthday bash. The beer pours a murky amber-brown color with a minimal white head that evaporates quickly to a bubbly outer ring. Sticky, coating legs on the side of the glass. Aroma of liqueur, maple and dark fruits. Full-bodied sipper with flavors of sherry, port wine, maple syrup and boozy vanilla. The finish is oaky with a vinous and boozy aftertaste. Very good beer overall.

Bottle 750ml @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012
Courtesy of 3fourths Pours deep brown with no head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, cocoa, chocolate, dried fruits, grapes and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long vinous, sweet cocoa and caramel finish. Body is full, texture is stick, carbonation is flat.
