mile (3118) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and caramel sweetish aroma, light vanilla (oak), light dark fruits and alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish aroma with some caramel and light dark fruits - raisins, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, some alcohol. Caramel sweetish strong ale. Too sweet for me - too much alcohol in the finish. Did not get any oak/notes of wood in the finish.

thewolf (11234) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle, bought @Etre Gourmet. Pours deep dark chestnut brown with red edges. Small, staying, creamy, white film head. Aroma has lots of caramel, raisins, dates, oak, vanilla, vinious. Low carbonation, fine oily and quite fat mouthfeel. Flavour has shitloads of vanilla, sweet malts, cocoa, caramel and raisins. Great malty bitterness to balance both alcohol and sweetness. Nice.

33cl flesje via Mans, Margraten Alcoholpercentage van 12% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: donkerbruin zonder enig schuim na het inschudden Aroma en smaak: veel alcoholsmaak, zoetje, honing, licht eiken Conclusie: tegenvaller, weinig smaak van de rijping op eiken vaten, voornamelijk alcohol, daarmee wel een goed slaapmutsje ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leghorn99 (32) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 29, 2014
Colore marrone scuro, sottile schiuma beige, che va scomparendo abbastanza rapidamente. Aroma di malto, frutta secca, frutta scura, vaniglia, noci, pepe nero. In bocca malto scuro, cioccolato, frutta scura e la dolcezza di frutta candita, retrogusto di cioccolato. Poi, note barricate, frutta matura e una punta di Porto, favorendo un superbo equilibrio. Il finale è dolce, rotondo e maltato, e una presenza alcolica (12%) mai invadente.
