Bottle from CBX I bought three years ago. Dark golden pour with a pretty, dense white head. Big vinous aroma full of dark fruits, honey, vanilla, burnt sugar, booze and wood. Flavors were sweet on the verge of cloying. Lots and lots going on here. Lots of sweet fruit, vanilla, bourbon, good heat. Mouthfeel was syrupy with decent carbonation. Overall very complex with many moving parts. Smelled wonderful, just a bit too sweet. Dug it regardless.

On draft at Pizzeria Paradiso Washington DC. Pours a fairly clear dark amber with an ecru head. Aroma of caramel and dark fruit. Sweet and viscous with flavors of caramel, plum, raisin and candy sugar. Sweet boozy finish. Wow.

Moderate carbonation. Carmel, sugary, sweet scent. Boozy but not overpowering. Smooth but saccharine finish. Almost as good as Papier.

A light molasses to the aroma. This is a great barleywine. Super fruity but with a strong molasses finish. Really top notch. Still, the finish is amazingly, for either a barleywine or an old ale. Great stuff.

Pours murky brownish orange with a thick off white head. Aroma is very complex. Figs, raisins, oak, cinnamon, clove, dark brown sugar, sour apple, and booze make up the amazing aroma. Taste is figs, plum, alcohol, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, apples, pears, and sweet oak barrel. Hides the 14.5% very well. Delicious.

Fukito (792) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2013
Dark hazy murky brown/ copper color with almost no head. Aroma is figs/ dates and some port. Flavor is boozy, porterish with some dried fruit notes and a sweet, alcoholic aftertaste. Very full palate, boozy and warming. Kinda good but i am sure this is going to give me a bad headache tomorrow...

Frank (3046) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Labelled as Cuir. Kinda funky and super, super sweet. Pears and spice and booze. Really, just losts and lots and more fruit. This beer is like a fruit coctail w/ extra corn syrup. It is kinda tasy but not a great beer.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a fruity malt and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet roast and fruity malt and light oak. Easy to drink a very good old ale from The Bruery.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
The pour is dark brown with a very small off white head. The nose is vanilla, a little vegetable, whiskey, wood, cherries. The taste is sweet almost entirely. Only a hint of bitter toward the end can be found. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

massive flavors. leather, caramel, vanilla, rich bourbon, balanced sweetness, warm ethanol, slight tart cherry-molasses, nuttiness, thick, port, brandy notes. tons of good oak-a beautiful slow sipper.
