4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep brown and murky. Head lingers, but is not thick. Nose is deep with chocolate, oak, bourbon and toffee. Taste is bold and sweet while a yeasty sweet bread tastes linger. Truly a unique and flavorful beer.

Looks like mud but sure doesn’t taste like it. Good job Bruery. My first time drinking any of your brews and I’m eager to try more!

Bottle @ ZZT, small sample. Hazy dark brown color, short head. Aroma of cookie, biscuit, slight spicy, red fruit, bit booze, oak. Quite sweet in taste, cookie, vanilla sweetness, bit boozy alcohol. Wonderful sipper and bringer of hangovers.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep hazy plummy Amber with a thin bubbly off beige head. Deep aroma of plums and raisins and a touch of cocoa and almonds and gentle sugary booze. Flavor is huge with booze, brown sugar, almond, toffee, pecan, cocoa, caramel, raisin, plum, and whiskey notes. Really complex and deep and amazing. Wow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Rock solid body, oily, syrupy, very sweet. Brown sugar, pumpernikel, deep malty base. Lots of dried fruit and unripe red fruit. A light bourbon note but definitely not dominating. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from oversized bottle shared with JB. Pours opaque mahogany with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma intoxicating with notes of fig, bourbon, oak, molasses, vanilla, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavour is dark dried fruit, sherry, blackcurrant, caramel, bourbon, sour green apple, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts well balanced by hops. Moderate to full body. Complex and mellow. Awesome Solera-style ale now 8 years running. Looking forward to next year's release.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown with a small khaki head. Smells of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, and wood. Taste is the same with a lot of sweetness. Brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, figs and oak flavors with a rich complexity. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a thick body and low carbonation.
