UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 Bottle (2 oz.)... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and deep amber with no head. The aroma is a complex and bold blitz of port, molasses, dark honey and maple syrup. Full-bodied with only the dawn of carbonation. Bold and boozy, the flavor boasts sweet maple syrup, dark dried-fruits and tawny port. Finishes surprisingly smooth with afterthoughts of maple, dark honey, light molasses and ethanol. I thought this would suck. I was wrong. Complex, world-class beer, courtesy of biggsbowler!

Bottle @ koelschtrinker Tasting: Leicht trübes orangegoldenes Bier, kein Schaum. Geruch sehr alkoholiscih, Kleber, süß malzig, Dörrobst. Geschmack zunächst sehr mild nach Vanille, dann alkoholisch, holzig, brennend, im Abgang auch brennend alkoholisch. Koelschtrinker (20782) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 5, 2014
Kaum karbonisierter, sehr spritiger Antrunk. Wenig Aromen, eher wie ein guter Brand. Minimal malzig, zum Ende hin noch etwas alkoholischer. Interessant. 7/9/5/9/12/8 biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2014

tasting group. Difficult to rate this one with a sip. Copper beer no head. Aroma of port and malts. Taste is port and warm spirits with malts. Good.
You know that you’ve turned into a beer ticking geek when you share a 6cl (yes 6cl) bottle with 5 other guys. This is what happened on 23rd Aug 2014 at the Midlands meeting. My 1cl was lovely, I like sweet strong brews so this was just right for me. A novelty beer really I suppose, glad I’ve had a sip but not sure I should be pontificating about a beer I’ve had so little of: just a tick really. Scored highly because I can. minutemat (5809) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle @ Midlands Bottle Share, very kindly shared by Rich. Pours deep amber with a sweet boozy aroma. Taste continues sweet with warming alcohol, candi sugar and perhaps the slightest hint of rum & caramel. Quite nice, just wish I had a full bottle myself for a proper taste.
