Jess aged this beer for 3 years before we tasted it. Mellow with almost no trace of bitterness. Wonderful plum and alcohol nose. Reddish brown, somewhat flat and watery.

2012 25.4oz bomber into Spiegelau Soiree snifter @ 55°; deep vibrant amber body beneath a 2.5" tight light khaki head, fading to a solid sheet with eclectic lace all around; fruity English esters and citrus notes mingle with fresh cut wood merging into creamy fig and caramel malts; taste follows on a warming mmh body; spirit like notes and drying wood finish with some citrus in the background; definitely worth grabbing again, and readily available in my area

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is dark red/brown with a light tan head. Nose is malty with hints of fruits like dark cherry and currant. Taste is malt, malt and more malt. The sweetness is well balanced with hop bitterness to give a nice balanced flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and has nice effervescence with a nice but not too lingering aftertaste. Overall very good. Glad I received this gift!

Aroma of apricot, grapefruit, rye and dates. Pours red and hazy with good fuzzy head. Taste is super hoppy with good bitter grass, sweet caramel, and nice malt. Not too exciting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample of 2006-2011 vintages at the Blarney Wine tasting on 03/16/2013: Reviewing the 2009 which was my favorite of the bunch. Murky brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing. The aroma is oaky with malt and vanilla notes. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, oak, vanilla and raisins. The finish is sweet with an oaky vanilla aftertaste. Good beer all around.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Share. Poured translucent coppery, the color of single malt bourbon, with similar nose. A lot of oak, caramel, fuselly head, mild fruit, honey in the nose. Tasted complex, hot, oaky, with flavors of oaky caramel malt, some mid-palate oaky honey sweetness to match the alcohol burn, and more oak and heat in the finish. This one kicks the doors off the beer/spirit boundary.

2008 Vintage bottle from Muckey’s. Pours out a deep opaque amber with an thin tan lace. Fine bubby carbonation though. Aroma of sweet oak. Flavor is earthy and oaky. Very smooth with notes of sweet prune and raisins. Some herbal vanilla on the backside, but a bit too sweet on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours hazy very deep reddish amber with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is oak, toasted caramel, ripe fruit, sweet malt and some biscuits. The flavour is rather sweet. Notes of malt, Dark ripe berries, loads of oak, light tobacco and I also catch cedar tree in the finish. Quite sweet overall but still a treat.
