JDBaker11058 (1567) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Appearance: clear copper, with a lasting, creamy, light tan head. Aroma: caramel, vanilla, oak, some peppery spice, and a hot shot of bourbon. Taste: woody caramel, light molasses, vanilla, crème fraiche, light herbal and citrus notes, and a huge wave of throat-burning booze. Finish: lingering boozy astringency, with a somehow slightly sour and tart funk underneath a last dose of caramel sweetness. Notes: This. Does. Not. Work. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, one of only two disappointments in five years.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-hued body. Though there is an initial surge of suds, it soon drops to a sustained off-white cap. Light lacing.

Smell: Toasted malts awash in alcohol, ultra faint caramel, scant fruitiness and a woodsy, earthy, spicy vibe.

Taste: Liberally toasted bread and grains, though not particularly sweet. Peppery coarse alcohol from sip-one. Touch of tannic cherryskins. Earthy yeastiness with a muted albeit sustained spice tone. Light bitterness through to the dry, hot finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a minor stickiness to the mouthfeel. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: A slow, hot sipper, and a disappointing one at that.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear dark golden-orange body and a big, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is lightly sugary, with peaches, some pine cones, resins and a grassy touch. Alcohol notes. It’s full-bodied, warming and with a soft but high level of carbonation. Fruityness, peaches, resins, grass and some white sugar in the flavor. Nice bitterness. Lasting finish with a fine bitterness. Too much boozyness in this one, but it’s a quite fine beer anyway, doing well with some cheese. 150314

onceblind (5731) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Smells like wonderful Christmas with sweet toffee and spruce and plum. But the flavor is big bitter and pine and a slightly sour twang. Much more bitter and piney than necessary.

drowland (7059) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12/18/14. 750mL bottle thanks to cbfobes. Murky red amber pour with a TON of floaties depending on your pour all under a small tan head that sticks. Fruity aroma, lightly tropical, maybe a hint of Brett? Caramel in the flavor, sugary, fruity, not bad.
