Big thanks to Sparky for sharing this. The 750mL bottle pours a nice clear mahogany with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is inviting with some thick malts, prunes and dates as well as a bit of raisin like dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a nearly creamy mouth feel offering up smooth sweet prunes and brown sugar covered dates and raisins. This is a smooth yummy and rich brew with only the slightest rough around the edges sensation which tells me the room for improvement with age is kind of small. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to age a few. Lovely Quad. kraddel (8761) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2013

Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Paul. Dark reddy brown, small foamy tan head. Aroma is earthy, toffee, pungent fruits, souring tangerine. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste has bready malt, tangy alcohol, raisin, prune and other dark dried fruits. Definitely a heavy hitter. SudsMcDuff (8468) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2013

750, capped and foiled. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose creamy tan head. Big sweet nose, lots of brown sugar and party balloons. CO2 happening. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Brown sugar, party balloons, CO2, aluminum, and tangy persimmons on the mid palate. Mild bready finish. Not bad. Definitely not great. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
On tap at Alesmith. Pours with a clear bronze hued body with a tan head that lasts. Aromas are of big malt, alcohol, raisins, lightly spicy phenols, grain, plums, rich, light molasses, melanoidins, toffee. Despite all this decadence it still smells relatively dry. Flavors are rich and boozy with plums, brown sugar, molasses and rich esters. Richly malty, and decadent. Boozy, but with a relatively dry finish. Well made.
