3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A shot shared from Adam’s 2011 vintage. Mini snifter shows a dark brown color. The aroma reminds me of Brandy. Butterscotch, maybe syrup and rye. The flavor has a few different nuances. The Brandy barrel comes out a lot with traces of dark fruit. The booze is noticeable in the flavor but not harsh at all, very smooth mouthfeel.
Very unique but the really is more like an aged liquor and not a beer. However, I tip my hat for the creativity of Mr. Koch.

2011 still shared by buddy Taylor at Beer study. Thanks bro! Pours dark amber with no head. Nose is big, boozy, brandy, brown sugar, lots of oak and leather. Flavor is similar. Fun to try finally in a somewhat sober state.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample of the 10th anniversary! Pours a thick brown with no real head or lacing. Aroma is boozy sweetness, loads of caramel and toffee, hints of fruitiness, and a nice woody ending. Taste follows, nice burn and the flavor just sticks to your palate forever. Really intense but also really flavorful. Nuts.

dark hazy chestnut brown with powerful aroma and taste of rich vanilla, rasins, caramel and butterscotch and a punch of booze. Thiok like a liquer, low carb.

A thousand thanks to Jclockwork for a small. Aroma of brandy, licorice, rhubarb, ice wine, port, and candied apple. Pours like diner maple syrup. Taste is maple liquor, brandy, caramello, and white port. Fantastic and boozy.

thanks go to Brian D for opening this bottle for us.
A- Pours a dark copper red with no head. Very appealing to the eye as you can see the legs cling to the glass.
S. Alcoholic raisins but in a good way with hints of toffee along with the slight burn of alcohol.
T- Raisins, toffee, burnt caramel. You definately get the alcohol but its not a bad burn at all very pleasant actually. very little to no carbonation.
M- has the feel of a port/sherry with medium viscosity and a slight burn on the outer part of the tongue.
O- This is an amazing beer if you can call it that. while $200 is steep if you can find a shot in a bar for $20-$25 i would definately say its worth it to those that want to try it atleast once. I on the other hand while mostly likely be tracking down each release if my bank account permits it.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
3cl från 75cl flaska på ölrepubliken. Mörkt brun i färgen utan någon som helst skumkrona. Smaken är inte så direkt, utan utvecklas snarare i munnen under tre sekunder. Humlet känns, men den är ändå väldigt söt. Inslag av russin, nästan lite moscatvin. Dricks bäst i små klunkar som fått vila en stund på tungan.

Short pour from a 75cl bottle thanks to the kind lads at the Black Sheep, Dublin. Oily looking mahogany colour - no head. Aroma is big and boozy - lots of sherry, alcohol, brown sugar, orange liqueur - overpowering. Taste is actually incredibly subtle and nuanced - wonderful orange, orange blossom, caramel, sherry, red fruits, light berries, booze. Lingering boozy aftertaste - lots of orange and dark fruit. A brilliant experience.
