After looking for this beer off and on for three years I finally have it. The year on the bottle is difficult to read but I believe this is a 2012 bottle. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a muddy brown with small white foam. Aroma is wood, booze, and caramel. Flavor is boozey on first sip to the back of the tongue followed by oak a presence of hops and roasted/sweet malts. I’m a big fan, this is definitely a sipping beer.

Lele (112) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 25, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Fantastica birra, una piacevole casuale scoperta in un pub. L’aroma è caldo e avvolgente, con chiare note affumicate, maltate e di frutta secca, e in bocca presenta proprio queste caratteristiche, ben abbinate tra loro. Un bel retrogusto amarognolo che invita ad una nuova bevuta. Corpo decisamente strutturato. Una delle migliori birre che ho mai assaggiato.

Taste: lots of chocolate, dried fruits, prunes, bit hoppy, caramel, sweet, some mocha. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, dark chocolate, some vanilla, raisins, pruntes, bit dusty, alcohol, caramel, sweet ending. Developed into a really beautiful and lovely beer, holy cow!

I will be goddamned. Pours very dark beautiful ruby with a thick khaki dome that settles slowly and leaves some waves of foamy lace. Nose involves deep malty sweetness, brown sugar, dark fruit, vinous beauty, some light earthy and spicy hops, caramelized sugar, port wine, toasted malt, alky vapes. Excellently sweet, bitter enough to offer an attempt at balance. Full bodied, quite oily, viscous, rich, softer carb, with a drying toasty voluptuous finish. A bit oxidized? Maybe. A bit chunky? Sure. Best beer I’ve ever fucking had? You bet your honky ass.

goozen (2941) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle with swingtop 0,33ltr: Dark brown colored brew with an slightly burning feel in the mouth and an sweet bitter taste. Load of caramel hints and a touch of roasted malts. The heaviest Altbier? Why not.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Can’t believe I haven’t rated this before. Bottle purchased at Monument in Concord, CA. The aroma on this is sweet, nutty, caramel, and nougat. Lightly vinous, too. Weird aroma. Modestly hazy amber body with a smallish light tan head present. Starts almost smoky, burnt before some sweet and caramel malts come through in the middle. Fairly caramel-like in the middle. Some light cardboard oxidation, too. Finishes lightly warming. This is ok, but seems a little sweet, sticky, and oxidized.

olsvammel (3066) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very malty smell with toffee and dried fruit. Very sweet and malty taste. Very nice to lean back and sip at, like a german barley wine.

robinvboyer (3111) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Very dark cloudy brown, medium beige head. Dark, caramel aroma, big bready boozy malts. Dark roast, and nutiness. This is very similar to a big thick syrupy e glish barley wine. The finish is medium bitter, with an interesting unexpected pine resin flavor. A great sipper.
