Pours reddish brown and murky with a creamy beige head that settles down to a ring quickly. Aroma is dried fruits and booze: dark cherry, raisin, and a hint of anise. Flavor is sweet and boozy warm and makes me want to linger long at the cup. Medium body, nice carbonation. Beautiful brew! Sultry, sexy, smooth.

Wow!!!!. The nose starts with malty raisin aromas. Then the first sip is like no other. The taste complements the nose, which is hard to find. Great maltiness with tons of fruit, figs, raisins and caramel. The use of barrels adds very nice complexity.

Trying to rate a beer I didn't particularly like is difficult, but here goes... The Bruery certainly achieved their purpose of making a BIG complex beer. Sweet boozy aromas and taste are somewhat overwhelming. This is a beer for sipping and contemplation.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DanielCoor). Looks good for the style; a murky orangish brown with thin beige lacing. Smells sweet, malty, and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

Pours a rich red amber with Carmel head. Has a velvety mouthfeel and a creaminess with a sharp boozy finish. Carmel and sweet notes prevail.

Pours very dark brown, nearly black, with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma of muscovado, dried dates and figs, raisins and corinthians, bourbon barrels, chocolate, vanilla, the kitchen sink... This beer is HUGE on the nose, and in a great way! It literally made me laugh out loud - my wife probably think I’m crazy... Taste is initially boozy sweet with heavy port and bourbon barrel. Finish is long and alcohol warming. Rich, full, creamy and sticky body with flat carbonation but again tons of alcohol. This is absolutely amazing, though I must say a tad too strong. It reminds me of Lost Abbey’s The Angel’s Share Bourbon Barrel but with more alcohol. I think a couple of years in a cellar will do wonders for this beer!

Bottle shared by Nate, Thanks Man ! Pours a murky brown color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is sweet caramel, toffee and butterscotch... traces of fig, booze and old wood. I never thought I would fall for such a sweet beer but the complexity lying within the sweetness is so dialed in and inviting I cannot stop drinking it ! Vanilla, tootsie roll, smooth creamy caramel, werthers original, bourbon kissed... YUM !
