brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle @ Mikkeller San Francisco. Deep mahogany pour with a thin ring of khaki foam. Smells quite sweet and fruit forward. A ton of caramel, raisin, plum, and figs. Nice caramelized fruit and brown sugar. Plenty of vanilla, brandy, and oak. A Bit of chocolate and red wine/port. The flavor is super fruity and sweet, too. A lot of chocolate sauce and dessert wine. Quite like a port. Some brandy, vanilla, and brown sugar. Tons of rich caramel and buttery toffee. Slight booze as it warms. Really nice, though. Would crush again.

mcberko (15013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a reddish dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel and brandy barrels -- doesnt taste that pungent to be honest. Flavour is very potent, with cognac barrels and caramel. Quite complex, considering the ABV, and the alcohol is very well-concealed. Very different for Anchorages typical beers. Great stuff.
