Interesting beer. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A bog hot sweet vinous barrel nose. Massive brandy, vinous, figs, some toffee, caramel, heat, licorice, some dark fruit. Very good beer. Not as much base as you might like, but solid.

Bottle shared by "Douglas88. Colour...very dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose...dark fruits, loads of barrel character and boozy goodness. Palate...sweet, but not cloying, with lots of booziness and oak. There’s gobs of dates and dried currants and wet earth. A burnt brown sugar hint comes in at the back and a tangy bittersweet chocolate taste also makes a showing.

75cl, Orange wax, as Topless Wytch BA (no mention of ABV), new exclusive American brew Anno 2013, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex Porter, roasted/malty and slightly alcoholic/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Pours light cola brown with plenty of carbonation. Light and carbonated, this is a baltic porter for sure. Nice brandy edge frames out the base beer. Not a ton of complexity but pretty good none the less.

Bottle. Rating from notes. Of course, I was excited to try this and thankfully given the opportunity by a good friend. Topless Wytch isn’t the FFF beer you dream about, but it never disappoints. There was probably a time in my life where I would be afraid of cognac barrels but, you know what? I probably sucked back then. Pours a rich black with a small beige head. Aroma of booze, malt, dark fruits, mild sweetness. Touches of barrel and alcohol. Some cocoa, some peppery notes. Flavor is mostly booze with lots of figs, raisins, and other dark fruit notes. Cognac is there, and is mildly interesting on the flavor profile. Some wood and vinous notes. Medium bodied, oily texture, with light carbonation. Finishes fairly long. Overall, not disappointed.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer with a good bubbly pale tan head. Light airy palate, softish with fine carbonation. Smooth sweet dark malt with a little lactose and dry cream. Light spice. Mild barrel vanilla with mellow brandy and brandy spice. Touch of fruits before the light dry finish. Good beer but not getting the 3F wow factor I was hoping for.

Bottle thanks to Kenny. Cheers for the rare tick! It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is earth, sweet vanilla, coconut, juicy, toast, macaroon, dark fruit and bounty bar. The taste is earth, toast, roasted malt, toasted coconut, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, booze, wood and toffee. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good depth. Pretty tasty stuff.
