My Bottom Line:
Dried dates, cooked fruit, molasses and soy-like edges wade within this massively sweet fireside treat.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no foam atop the dark brown.
-This bottle needs to be shared with MANY people.
-The lack of carbonation increases the impression of heaviness.
-Alcohol warms up the finish, although surprisingly discreetly.
-This is not as complex as Xyauyu or other creations from Teo Musso in the same family, but it remains competently executed and deserves to be shared.
-This is NOT a malt liquor in the traditional, drink-under-a-bridge sense.

Sample (1 oz) @ Saint-Houblon.

Appearance: Deep clear copper with no head and nice legs.

Aroma: Strong malty presence, booze, toasted notes, oak, vanilla, raisins and toffee.

Taste: Huge malty presence here again with medium to heavy sweetness that is balance rather well by the boozy presence. Oak, vanilla, toffee, raisins and light acidity.

Palate: Full bodied. Still. Liquorous mouthfeel. Strong warming (but not burning) presence. Long lasting toffee flavor.

Overall: Quite tasty, but 1oz was more than enough for me. It should definitely not be classified as a "Malt liquor" and it’s certainly higher in abv than the listed 11.9 %. Good sipper.

Sample from a bottle at Saint Houblon. Flat copper pour, clear. Aroma is malty, a ton of barley candy, boozy, raisins, caramel. Taste is sweet, really malty, nice maltiness, warming alcohol finish. Palate is rich, full bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 Bottle, birthday gift from dad. Aroma: nuts, cherry, oak, vanilla. App: amber-brown, minimal head not lasting. Taste and palate: full body, medium sweetness in mouth that lasts until the finish. We can?t really feel the alcohol going down. Overall: really enjoyed it. No idea if on style or not but it definitely seems well done.

Olfactif très alcoolisé avec notes de cerises au marasquin, de réglisse rouge, de crème brulée et de friandises sucrées. Grande puissance et bon maintient. Visuel brun et clair, aux reflets de cuivre et sans mousse. Au gustatif, l’alcool est en interaction constante avec les fruits sucrés et les déclinaisons de caramel. Les notes de sucre sont très complexes. On y retrouve du caramel, de la cassonade, des accents de mélasse, de la réglisse et des dattes. En bouche, elle est très réchauffante et présente une texture visqueuse. L’effervescence est nulle et l’équilibre penche totalement du coté du sucre et de l’alcool. Une vrai liqueur. Excellent digestif.

Bottle @Mondial de la bière, a copper beer with low head and carbonation. Nose is intense on dry grapes, oak and vanilla, candied fruits. Aroma is on vanilla, blond caramel, dry grapes, very sweet, bit tannic. Long caramel aftertaste, light sourish notes, very pleasant.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3055) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
A ruby dark malty pour with a big rich sweet malty aroma and a touch of caramel. A viscous slick med-full body.  Very nutty, malty, liquor maple pretty good but not at room temperature, should have had it cold...
