KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark amber brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown foamy head that reduced to a few puddles and a large collar with good sticky lacing. The aroma was of roasted caramel malts and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of chocolate, toffee, cinnamon, chili’s, dried fruit (raisons and figs) and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was malty sweet and a bit acidic with a note of caramel and a touch of cinnamon and chocolate early on, and then progressed with a seriously bold maltiness that had hints of toffee, dried fruit and a light spicy alcohol finish. The flavor lasted for a good long while with a slightly spicy sweet warming sensation, which hit you right in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was a solid medium in body and dry in texture with a somewhat mild carbonation. Overall this was a very interesting brew, lots of complexity with the flavors in this one. That being said, they all seemed to work extremely well together, making this a very enjoyable drinking experience...

MrHangover (2530) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma has loads of port and vineous characters that go with a big malty base and a rich molasses front. Flavor is very sweet, very vineous and you can defintely tell the age on this one. Very nice, full bodied and well carbonated drinking experience, I wish I had the entire series, but unfortunately I don’t...

Pours hazy deep copper brown with a puffy medium beige head, excellent retention, very fine lacing. Big malty aroma like a barley wine with notes of toast, biscuit, grass, hay, wood, and a hint of cinnamon. Medium full body, smooth and velvety. Mildly sweet, a hint of citrus, medium bitter finish.

maley1 (784) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Dark clear copper pour with beige head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, cinnamon, honey and yeast. Taste of caramel, malts, yeast, dark fruit, cinnamon, iced tea and faint chili heat on the finish. Full bodied, nice carbonation, long hop syrupy finish. Tasty and interesting but became cloying by the end of the bottle.

Bottled @ Camping Ratebeers 2014, small sample. Dark color. Slight spicy, quite malty. Bit sweet, bit bitter in taste. Wasnt aware of the chiles, so didnt notice them (which is not a bad thing).
