1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The high ratings somewhat surprise me. Sticky, super sweet, extremely malted flavor. Tastes of an instant yeast packet, some charcoal, and some raw molasses all at once. The mouthfeel is sickly, clinging, and difficult to get rid of. To finish this bottle I had to eat practically a whole bag of chips. Just finishing it took me a couple of hours, and I consider that an accomplishment. I know this is malt liquor-which is different. I must not like malt liquor, as I just could not stand it.

Dark red colour with an off white head. Aroma of dark malts and hints of brandy. Slightly bitter, deep caramel taste with a prune background. Great thick mouthfeel. Fairly smooth taste considering the huge alcohol content. Great winter beer to sip by the fire.

Good looking bottle design. A very dark red in the glass, nearly no head. Like liqueur with a malty background on the nose. Starts very smooth and oily. Almonds, dark fuits, plums and malt. Wooden barrel in the aftertaste. Full fruity body, little bit sweet sticky. The alcohol is present in a pleasant way. Great one!

94? How? It tastes like a Belgian ale...and i almost threw up. Thank God i was able to quickly get my money back and replace it with a Korbinian...which is about the most delicious beer i’ve ever tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged over 3 years. Syrup, bourbon and booze are the dominate notes on the aroma. Some sweet malt shows nicely in the background. Pours a clear, deep amber with no head. Taste develops in two waves. Front half is more flat grain. Follows through on the mid to back palate with complex dark fruit, boozy sherry-like notes, biscuit and maple syrup. A tale of two cities, and i end up liking this beer a lot. More like a cognac than a doppelbock.

2010 vintage bottle thanks to Phatdog1. Thanks Craig! Snifter show a nice dark red color with fast vanishing head. Aroma is huge raisins and dark fruits. The flavor has layers of malt. Caramel, toffee, raisins, plum notes and a sugary note. Maybe even a dried fig flavor. The alcohol is mellowed after the amount of age and the sweetness helps cover it up for sure. A nice mild alcohol warming is felt after the sip. It warms the stomach nicely. The texture is lightly syrupy but not sticky. This is delightful to sip. I need to cellar more of this.
