Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, faint chocolate, and vanilla. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and toffee. The finish has some molasses, vanilla, and light whiskey. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation.

Bottle at Kingcecils Birthday Tasting. Pours dark ruby wit a medium off white head. The aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet malt, loads of toasted malt and sweet tobacco. The flavour is very intense. Loads of bourbon, oak, vanilla, overripe fruit, caramel and has a great vinous kick. Fantastic!

Shared by Darrell. Thanks man, what a nightcap!
The beer is dark auburn with a thin off white collar.
The aroma is pleasant, offering malt, oak, booze, fruit, bourbon, toffee, caramels, oh my, what is taking place here?!?
The flavor follows suit, with a wonderful assault of flavors. The Bruery seems to have the recipe for 15%+ abv old ales / barleywines down pat. Wow. Go Patrick, wif yo bad self. A tad sweet, but never cloying. A barrage of tastes, to include toffee, oak, booze, bourbon, brandy perhaps. One could hurt thyself if left unattended with this beer.
Medium bodied with a warming alcohol finish. moderately low carbonation.

On tap @ Toronado: Served in a tiny 4 oz. cup with no formation of head while the liquid was an opaque brown liquid with a tint of red mahogany. Aroma is all syrup and has scents of wood and barrel aging. The flavor is intense and is almost like drinking liquid sugar or melted caramel but does have a brown sugar and maple syrup taste that reminds me of Sam Adams triple bock. Aftertaste is a strong astringent medicine finish that makes me feel like I just took a swig of high proof rum or vodka. Nice sticky sweet resin left around my lips. I would prefer to be drinking most of these Bruery beers from bottles but since they only distribute only a few cases, it’s nearly impossible to find one.

The aroma is SUPER boozy with wood, chocolate, butter scotch, toffee, caramel, maple syrup, vitamins, and finally hops. The appearance is cloudy red brown with a medium head. The taste is amazingly complex. The palate is smooth. Overall you would think this would be cloying and the aroma is but the flavor is killer.

Bottle, shared at RBAG Summer Session 2012. Dark brown with orange highlights and a creamy off-white head. Decent lace. Not nearly as dark or hearty a pour as I thought it would be. Aroma is sweet and very boozy, some burnt sugars, bourbon, vanilla. Flavour is surprisingly very close to maple syrup, assertive barrel character, warming boozy finish. Surprising, interesting.
