Black pour. Sizable khaki head that falls quickly and does not leave lacing. Peppery malt aroma. Dark, dried fruits - raisins and figs. Vanilla notes. Taste is like caramel topped vanilla ice cream. Holy crap, it’s phenomenal. A very, very slight alcohol warmth mixed with the sweet syrup. Slightly too sweet, but the flavors more than make up for it. This is a fantastic beer.

Nice reddish brown color with a quick dissolving white head. Scent is some molasses, dried plums, barrel notes and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet caramel and molasses and some raisins, outstanding beer.

Super complex, bourbon in the nose, raisin and dates are the first favors which come to mInd. super sticky. Absolutely fantastic, should be aged.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Sample pour from a bomber bottle. Huge hop and fruit aroma, which leads me to think this is an American Old Ale. I didn’t pick up on the malts as much in the aroma. Appearance is a foggy orange and heavy amounts of foam on top. Taste was more apparently malted, but the hop side won out and dominated the flavor profile. Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and warm. Palate was fizzed and medium bodied. Overall a fantastic beer, easy drinking and bold at the same time. It lives up to the hype that you hope for in a rare and highly sought after selection

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Couleur bouetteuse, pas la plus sexy. Caramel, vanille, noisettes, bourbon, fruits foncés, une bonne claque d’éthanol, surtout en arôme. Splendide corpulence! Les sucres sont multiples, profonde complexité.
