Bottle. Dark ruby with thin wisps of off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, toffee and brown sugar. Taste follows and adds caramel, butterscotch and toast. Thick, rich and syrupy. Dead flat. Alcohol heat is present but very reasonable for the Abv. This beer is completely insane. BOLTZ7555 (3127) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
Really enjoyed this beer! Burnt tangerine/rusted metal/Sedona clay in color with a tightly packed eggshell head. All things sweet, spicy, and rich. Caramel, toffee, molasses, oak, vanilla, cognac, pepper, and even a little cocoa. A dessert beer for sure but thick, velvety, coating, and enjoyable! markextrae (4485) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
Shared bottle by a friend. Poured an chesnut Brown to dark Amber clear colour with a slight off head. Notes of sweet caramel malts, barley, burned caramel, raisins, oak, figs, slight subtile cognac notes, taste is incredibly thick. Lots of cognac with a bit sticky mouthfeel. Very complex. Incredible. Not dominated by the barrel. Lovely! jacobrm (39) - - JUL 1, 2015
Wow so think. So smooth and sweet.

Pours dark brown color with a very good head. The aroma is of oak and sweet cognac. There is notes of vanilla, nutts, figs, toasted bread malts. Tasting, sweet caramel syrup, malts, soft cognac flavor, vanilla, light bitterness, and an enjoyable dark fruit presence. The body is very heavy and thick. It masks the alcohol very well too. The finish is delightful, blending the ingredients and leaves a sweet aftertaste. Overall this was outstanding for being such a big beer.

Dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malty and fruity with caramel, toffee, dark sugars, prunes, figs, raisins, cognac.
Taste is sweet malty, dried fruity, smooth warming notes. Full bodied, smooth small bubble carbonation, oily texture. Finish is sweet caramel, toffee, figs, raisins, prunes, warming cognac, hints of oak.
Great one, nice blend of malt and dried fruits and well hidden alcohol.
On tap at Brouwer’s Hard Liver 2013. Really glad I got to try this one -- it was something else. Murky, muddy brown, with a tan head. Booze, caramel, some tart cherry, and gobs of brown sugar on the nose. Huge flavor that covers the 17% beautifully -- I really couldn’t believe the abv was that high. So much malt in here -- the flavor just explodes with dark fruits (overripe cherries), molasses, some seafoam candy, maybe a bit of cacao -- unreal that this much complexity came from a single malt. Huge, and very, very tasty -- I’m quite impressed! rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
