Pour murky and hazy hazelnut brown, with nooooo head at all.
Aroma of caramel, booze, wood, raisin, butterscotch.
Taste is dominant sweet. Quite a lot of booze, though it’s (only) 27 abv.
Thick and oily body, with no carb at all - what was expected. - thanks to Enjoyit, for letting me get a go at this.

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.

It’s not a suprice that it tastes more like an cogncac than an beer. Really fun beer to have tried but perhaps not my cup of tea.

FWE beer#7. Matt, you rock. The bottle was sittting there all nite, just taunting us. The second leg of teh Sam Adams Triple Crown run. This is the one beer I was almost afraid to drink. $90 a bottle, and 25% abv was enough to rattle me a bit. Again, in a snifTer. Head was one after a second or two. The apperance was like apple cider, getting darker from top to bottom. Smelled this one for a looong time. The first and most lasting impression of the aroma was tequilla, and then add in some vanila. There was so much more I just could not pick out. I balked twice at taking the frist sip. Alcohol, yes. After that, brandy and coginac tastes. Almost not a beer. Great experience though.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 Amber coloured with no head. Sherry aroma. Very sweet flavour with a late touch of raisins. Perhaps too strong for it’s own good.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 The Lure:
Alcohol bombardment attempts to blind the nostrils but some deeply caramelized cereals can be perceived during the onslaught. You have to blink to protect yourself though.
This isn’t beer, it’s hard liquor and pancake syrup. Alcohol is everywhere, lingers and coats the palate. Perchance, earthy caramel and fruitiness can be found, redolent of some of their Triple Bock attempts, but that burning splash of ethanol I endure every sip of it is not very pleasurable. I respect the craft, but DFH has proved to me that high abvs can be thoroughly hidden in beer. This is well made, but it is not for me.

[At GABF 2004, Denver] An amber beer with no head, but the liquid makes "curtains" on the glass like a strong wine or liquor. The aroma is woody with strong notes of alcohol, but also overripe fruits, sherry, and bourbon. The flavor is powerful with notes of plums, other overripe fruits, and loads of alcohol, that burns the throat, as a strong sherry. The end is dry woody. An experience - but to me, not a beer.
