Deep mahogany/red with a very small tan head that fades quickly in the glass. Aroma is huge on the oak with some herbal and Earth notes thrown in. Flavor is much like the aroma but with more of an alcohol presence. Sweet and fairly well balanced for such the huge ABV but still kind of lopsided.

fletchfighters (1298) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured a dark, murky brown. Very little carbonation. What was there was light brown head and disappeared quickly. No lacing at all. S-- Sweet, roasted coconut right off the bat. Some dark fruit as well. Alcohol is quite noticeable as well. More like cognac than alcohol though. T-- Thick and syrupy. That is for sure. Coconut is very dominant in the taste. Still some dark fruits but apricot stands out in the fruit part. Also get almond in this as well. Keep thinking almond joy with this. M-- Thick, syrupy and sweet. That is for sure. Very low carbonation. Sometimes medicinal and other times not in the mouth. D-- Very much a sipper. ABV is pretty well hidden but it is just sweet and syrupy that slows you down. Might have been better fresher more than anything else. I like coconut but in a way this is over the top. Worth trying more than anything else. Becoming a trend with what I have had with ST beers. Very sweet and syrupy.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from back in The Wine & Cheese Place years ago. The appearance is a ruby brown hue with a small off white to light brown head. The nose is full of grape juice, oak, vanilla wafers, and a sprinkle of nutmeg. The flavors are malty with sweet caramelized brown sugar, creme brulee for sure. Oak spice and snikerdoodles. Luscious creamy body with a mild intensity oak spice. After have forgetting about this for some time the Series 1 being a mediocre brew I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Nice oak aged aroma. Dark amber color but not much suds. Nice and smooth on the palate. This was cellared for a while and I think it helped.

thedm (5214) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 21, 2012
This $13.19 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated light brown colored body and a good lacing. The vinous aroma was nut brown malt and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish and a strongly vinous aftertaste with an alcohol burn to it. The strongly vinous flavor contained notes of old ale resinous pine and alcohol. A wonderful best in class brew.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Pours a deep dark mahogany with a litttle tan film skimmed across the top. Aromas are deep oak, sweet malts a touch of earthy maple and some boozey dark fruits. On the palate its not quite as oakey but maintains a big barley syrup mouthfeel with notes of vanilla, boozy dark rum and touches of caramel burnt toffee and rotten fruit.

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy deep amber body. Deep earthy toffee and chocolate aroma with vanilla fudge, sherry, and linoleum notes. Sweet-dryish earthy toffee and vanilla fudge taste with chocolatey alcohol and honey notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft mouthfeel with slight heat. Dry-sweetish roasty vanilla fudge aftertaste with chocolate, honey and linoleum notes. Really nice, but a bit too sweet and perfumy. (0.65l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen. Cellared for 1 year.)

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with thin to no white head, aroma brought notes of deep toffee, molasses, dark raisin, some slight plastic notes, hints of oak, vanilla in there, touch of slight cocoa powder. Taste is very plasticky, touch of vanilla, slight oak, lots of dark fruits and toffee/molasses, finishing fairly sweet. Eh something is off about this, but there are enough good tastes to help a bit.

Bottle @ Armin’s house. Somewhat cloudy, reddish orange appearance with a small tan head. Somewhat oxidized, toffee, light vanilla, dull flavor hoppy, fairly intense aroma. Fairly boozy, cardboard, plastic, toffee, caramel, bitter floral flavor. Pretty strong.
