Big cheers to Craig for this one (cgarvieuk). Opaque dark brown beer. Tiny tan bubbles fail to form a head. Palate is rich and smooth with fine carbonation. Rich dark malt, not bitter or roasty. Smooth and a little creamy. Whispers of dark chocolate and dark toffee. Lovely brandy links everything together, trace of wood. Finishes with a trace of aniseed and a whisper of dark fruits. Lovely dark treat!

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Black in color with nice viscosity. Minimal head formation and carbonation. Intense aroma of brandy and graham cracker sweetness. Lots of brown sugar, molasses, and chocolate, too. Maybe some marshmallow on the palate along with the graham cracker. A bit of a S’more thing going on. Quite a bit of brandy and booze as well as a bit of vanilla. Intensely sweet, but I like it.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, chocolate and woody alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours clear and nearly black with a small, beige head. The aroma is vinous and fruity with lots of blackstrap molasses, burnt malt, pouch tobacco, charcoal and mocha goodness. Full-bodied, sticky and thick with moderate carbonation. The luxuriant flavor offers layers of sweet caramel, dark chocolate and brown sugar nestled upon a buttery pecan praline foundation. Finishes caramely and coffee-candy sweet. Big-time thanks go out to 50belair for sharing this rare, magnificent treatment of an already outstanding beer!
