PorterPounder (6292) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Dark orange pour, off-white head, nice coat of lacing. Faint spruce aroma, hint of mixed nuts. Flavor is somewhat boozy, but not distractedly so, if I had to pin it down - peaches soaked in brandy. Hints of dates, some licorice notes and a finish reminiscent of fresh bubble gum. Thick, full mouthfeel.

djd07 (6254) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a paperthin off white head that diminshes to nothing. The aroma is booze oak and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light booze, not much going on with this one.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Old Embalmer ’12, bottled 7/19/12. I’m tellin’ you, this Total Wine carries some old sh*t. I just bought it last week. But for once, an old beer on the shelf is a good thing. This has aged gracefully and is unbelievably smooth. This goes down devilishly delicious, without a high-alcohol burn, instead drinking like a finessed nightcap. (#5949, 3/27/2015)

gyllenbock (5914) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle, thanks Eddan. A bit hazy reddish/orange with a medium head. Sweet with toffee, malt, light bread and some hints of orange in the finish. Not bad but a bit one-dimensional.

Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
650 ml bottle, vintage 2013, yellow label and wax, Limited Edition No. 11. ABV is 10.2%. Featuring X-431 hops. At Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber colour, large head, slightly off-white. Strong sweetish aroma, notes of caramelized orange marmalade, notes of molasses and some fresh oranges too, hints of oak. Rich flavour, sweet and malty as expected, but not cloying or sickening. Citrus fruit and caramel again, with distinct bittering hops in the finish and aftertaste. Warming mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Bottle: Courtesy of JCW. Aroma of sweet citrus, toffee, light honey, and slight hints of banana bread. Pours a transparent amber with a small white ring for a head. Caramel and toffee up front. Slight hints of banana bread, honey, and candi sugar. A light bitterness is added in the finish. Sticky and syruppy mouthfeel.

onceblind (5731) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
At Big Beers, Belgians, & Barleywines Fest 2013. Clear orange copper with a sticky aroma of caramalts and grapefruit pulp...by aroma alone I would have guessed this to be a DIPA. Flavor is smooth and sweet with toffee and caramel malts dominating, along with some sticky grapefruit and piney hops. Strong bitterness tempered by strong sweetness.

Poured a caramel color with a thin white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of port, lemons, raisins, and caramel malt. Taste of caramel malt, very sweet, some raisins, and lots of alcohol.
