Nice dark chestnut color with scant head but it still looks good. The smell is a little alcoholic but also quite intriguing because I canít place it but its good. The flavors were fruits, sweet, delicious old ale without a hint of the high alcohol. The alcohol is well masked but i was still glad I split the bottle. I usually donít like beers with this much alcohol but this was good stuff. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-11-2009 06:11:55

Well this is by far my favorite Bruery beer to date. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is really nice with booze, oak, caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch. Flavor is loaded with oak, bourbon, caramel, toffee and some alcohol. Damn I thought this was badass! Finally the Bruery impresses me! YES!

Bottle from Southbay. A beautiful bottle. Really like the classic-style label. Anyway, this beer is verrrry similar to bourbon barrel angelís share. Very light carbonation, very complex body, very spicey/alcohol finish. Verrrry good.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Entered to celebrate my rating number 13,400. Draft at the brewery. A dark brown beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, alcohol, bourbon, caramel, and wood. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, and medium notes of wood and alcohol, the latter burning lightly in the mouth, also light notes of bourbon, leading to a dry, woody, and alcoholic finish.

argo0 (11645) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2009
(DC Local Gathering, 750ml bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) Hazy mahogany body topped by no head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, chocolate, some spice, roast. Taste is sweet, boozy, some molasses, chocolate, Bourbon, light vinous. Sticky full body thatís way too boozy -- tastes like a 22% beer rather than a 14% one.

On tap at the Bruery.. Pours creamy red orange with a tan head.. Aroma is caramel, dates, booze and vanilla.. Taste was amazing with some caramel, dark fruits and a nice butteriness.. Full bodied with a smooth low carbonation.. Amazing!!!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 Nice bottle presentation and double waxing. Pours a deep dark brown with gemstone shine. The head atop was not really head, I donít think...just some bubbled air the beer picked up from bottle to glass. Nose was quite nice, deep, sweet, somewhat chocolaty, a bit of sherry, even some butterscotch, some sweet port viniousness with a little tannic twang at the tip, and touch of charred plum..sublte, but dessert-like in a refined alcoholic way...and certainly inviting. Very low carbination needs to be boosted a bit, but god damned the flavors are nice..refined sherry accented fudge, reduced plum puree, zinfandel twang, vionious in a boozy sort of way..port-like but less sweet and loads and loads of delicate yet deep silky chocolate. Big warmth emanates. Seriously, I was expecting to have to give away my other bottle because the Brueryís bottled stuff is never good...but shit, this is sublime. If this had adequate carbonation, it could be one of the best beers Iíve had in a long time...shit, it still is regardless. 1 1/2 to 2 years for the other bottle...I see it being even better with a few years.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle #81. Rich toffee brown color with no head. Brown sugar and bourbon aroma with dried fruit. Rich brown sugar and slight molassess flavor with bourbon and light spice/light wood. Medium bodied. Very low carbonation (will someone start a thread about high priced bottle with no carbonation for this beer?). Lingering brown sugar, caramel/toffee, bourbon, woodsiness, and a slight metallic twang. Lack of carbonation is definitely hurting it.

On tap at the Bruery. Poured a dark, dirty brownish color with a smallish head. Aroma was quite nice and complex; alcohol, dark fruit, caramel, cookie dough, wood, vanilla and yeast. Flavor was equally complex and very tasty. Same flavor components as the aroma, but with a bit more cocoa and dough. 14.5%? While the alcohol was present, it wasnít overly assertive. Very nice beer.
