Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
In short: A big boozy slightly fruity stout. Almost acceptable
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when almost exactly 3 years of age
The look: Black body topped by a very small tan head
In long: Nose is has plenty of booze (no surprise here) and also some dark fruits. Taste is very simple, sweetness level is through the roof, a tolerable alcohol warmth (thankfully not the alcohol bite I was expecting), some kind of blackened malt syrup, figs, some other dark fruits, a shot of black sambuca, oat, liquorice. The mouthfeel is surprisingly nice and not syrupy. Thick velvety body and a medium carbonation. Not a very good by any stretch of the imagination but not the absolute train wreck that I feared either. I traded my other bottle away and I don’t know how I ended up with 2 bottles of a sweet boozy Weyerbacher beer in my cellar. I don’t remember buying a bottle, much less two. You know when you read a page of a book and at the end of the page you need to start all over again because you were not conscious of what you were doing. That page is an average day of my life.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2011 Courtesy of northernbrews. Oily black, no head. Big dark fruits, tobacco, and alcohol. Flavor on par, but solvent like alcohol dominates. Very warming. Mouthfeel is silky smooth, Thins quite a bit at times. Just can’t get past the alcohol.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham, aged for 3-4 years, which seems to have served it well. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head. Nose is nutty, sweet, slightly roasty, with dark stewed fruits and Belgian sugars. Taste is sweet as hell, and boozy, but not so much, I guess, for 13.6%. Hard to drink much of this. Definitely a slow sipper.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Tap @ home, courtesy of LIVEFAST. Thanks! Deep brown/black appearance with a brown head. Belgian yeasty, dark chocolate, fairly roasty, light anise aroma. Rich dark chocolate, Belgian yeasty, somewhat fruity, anise flavor. Very smooth for 13%- some warming on the finish but this sucker is pretty smooth. I think this is actually a very tasty beer.

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Pour out of bottle from 2008, 12 oz bottle is dark black with thin tan head, aroma has notes of anise, dark fruit, some chocolate and coffee, some caramel in there as well. Taste is nice dark fruit, anise, toffee, caramel, hints of coffee, finishing fairly bitter. Not bad.

Koelschtrinker (11055) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 2, 2011
Alkoholischer aber ausgeglichener dunkler Malzantrunk.Später bilden sich hier cremige Schokoladennoten, der Alkohol wird schlagartig offensichtlich und brennt in der Nase. Süßlich, vollmundig, gut. Geringfügig herb. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier! /12/13/13/9/13

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle shared at the big Hair of the Dog PreSale Tasting... Poured jet black with a thin, off-white head. Still lots of business here with a thick palate. Some roast and coffee and some nice eatery yeast tones. Toffee and cocoa added some balance.
