hopscotch (8841) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy dark-brown pour with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet offers a melange of chocolate, vanilla and sweet, fruity wine. Full-bodied with a thick mouthfeel and trace carbonation. The flavor is of sweet, vinous port. Lengthy, sweet finish. This bottle of world class beer was generously provided by landhoney!

Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, wood, booze, caramel and raw sugar. Full bodied with low carbonation and extremely sticky mouthfeel. Great but a real mouthful.

Beerman6686 (4188) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
This one poured a pretty black color with a small tan head. Aroma was of sweet grapes, chocolate, and dark fruits. Winish character brought out more of the dark fruity character in DL< not much chocolate left here and a bit overly sweet.
