this little guy was made available by jay at dlday 2010. thanks my friend... pours a deep orange caramel brown with no head but very nice boozy legs... golden honey aroma laidened with sweet boozy notes...thick and coating, the flavors lend themselves to sweet honey, lighter caramel and grains. smooth despite the abv level but there is some heat that adds a bit of a spicy burn. appreciate the taste!

09 Bottle. Orange pour with a lacing of white bubbles. Sweet caramel, sugar, sherry and dark fruit notes, along with a good amount of alcohol warming, well it is 18 percent.

Big thanks to Diego. Pours a beautiful ruby color. Nose is dark fruits, sweet sugars, cherries, cocoa, rich malts. Flavor is much the same, dark fruit, hints of earth, every once in a while you get hit with some of that 18% ABV, but damn, not often. Masterful beer.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2010
Bottle (number 74 of 75... I still have bottle number 75, muah ha ha) that I took to Dark Lord Day and shared with Kan, Josh, Mike, and a few others. Pours the same sticky clear orange that you can see through the clear bottle, with a medium white head. Sweet caramel, and almost a candy corn note. Almost smoky, very smooth, with some rich slow vanilla notes. Obviously a little warming alcohol on the finish, but still has a lot of finesse for an 18% beer. So incredibly smooth and well balanced that I foresee myself not trading or sharing the other bottle of it I have, and just slowly enjoying it in front of the fireplace all by myself sometime next winter. Note to self, get a fireplace before next winter.

Thanks to maltzilla for sharing this one. Pours clear caramel color with no head. Nose is a ton of caramel with some syrup, dark fruit, and malt. Flavor is similar with a ton of sweet caramel, some dark fruit character, and NOT EVEN A HINT at the 18% ABV this thing packed. Very good Icebock with a great mouthfeel.

Sample at DLD 2010. This is what I need when my day calls for a stiff drink. Plenty warm from alcohol and big time malt. Think by not cloy. Wish the sample had a bit of a chill. Really good though.

sebletitje (8008) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2010
Bottle @ Miami Fandango ’10 gathering. Cheers to Diego for sharing this bottle # 44/75. Pours light orange, light off-white head. Aroma and flavors of caramel malts, enjoyable grainy palate with hint of pale malts quickly followed by grainy mouthfeel. Caramel palate remains the highlight of the profile with a touch of dark fruits and sugar sweetness. At 18%, this was light on the palate.

Huge Thanks to Diego for providing this one. Bottle 44. A: Pours a nice golden amber hue with no real head at all. No lace noted. S: Aromas of rich sweet caramel, brown sugar, and mild dark fruits. Rather subtle though to be honest for such a big beer. T: Sweet candy malts. Loads of caramel, dark fruit, and sweet dark cherries. Simple but loaded with goodness. Not a hint of the ABV that this one packs. M: On the fuller side of body, still carbonation, sweet, drinkable, deadly. D: Good, I loved this one. Nice brew, one I am honored to get the chance at drinking.
