Pour from Shahin Thanks ! Pours a rich copper color perfectly still. The nose is big complex sweet toffee, deep ripe plum, caramel a and a bit of boozy vinous notes. The palate is smooth and mouth-coating like a fine sherry. Lots of complexities in the palate with flavors unfolding as the palate adjusts to the boozy heat and layered notes of belgian spices, caramel, date. doughy sourness... touches of rye.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle... Mostly clear amber ale with a million small, white floaties suspended and scattered within. No head. The aroma is a straight-up malt bomb of caramel, fruitcake and cotton candy. It singes my nose hairs like lacquer or paint thinner, but doesn’t smell like either. Full-bodied and syrupy with soft carbonation. The flavor is sweet, red-hot-boozy, malty and fruity. The caramely finish is sweet and acrid with a lengthy butterscotch farewell. Pretty darned nice for what it is. Bottle shared by newcigarz!

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 25, 2012
A flat dark amber pour with a small khaki head. Smells like liquor. Very, very sweet nose of brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruit. Maybe a bit of banana and burnt sugar. Tastes somewhat like a quad at first with dark fruit, banana, and dark sugar flavors. A bit of caramel, too. But, the liquor and booze really take over. It’s also beyond cloying. Really brutal to drink.

Questa sarebbe una birra? Veramente pessima, non ne prenderei un’altra nemmeno se me la regalassero

Huge tip of the cap to Tony for sharing this bottle. Deep amber colored pour with no head. Aromas of cherry/eucalyptus cough drops, jet fuel, and caramel malts. Woah Nelly, this is a booze beast. All kinds of heat dowsed with sweet caramel notes. Dangerous but very drinkable. Maybe a little closer to a cognac than an ale, but still very good...

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Draught@SBWF2012. Deep amber colour, no head. Aroma is alcohol, raisins and very gluelike. Flavour is rather similar. Thick palate. Harsh and not at all my thing. YUCK.

Bottled at SBWF. Hazy orange colour. Fiercely alcoholic caramel aroma. Super sweet with sticky banana. Boozy with sheer vodka poured onto sticky caramel pudding. Burning diesel dominates the finish. Just oversized.

VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Hazy deep amber liquid with minimal off-white head. Aroma of banana, plums, caramel, biscuit, booze, dark fruit, figs and syrup. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of dark fruit and caramel. Full bodied with no carbonation. Quite interesting not that boozy actually.
