Smells decent, but is basically undrinkable flavor wise.
Sampled at the FF tasting. Poured a dead lifeless syrupy orange amber. Aroma of booze, alcohol, sweetness that eludes to chocolate and a hint of citrus. Flavor is horrible, just booze and no beer notes at all. Palate is just mouth-numbing alcohol. Why even make this?? jredmond (8508) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle courtesy of clockworks at Paul’s February 2015 tasting. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with floating stuff throughout. Mouthfeel stings with alcohol burn, shots!, shots!, shots!, mushrooms and leather. Lots of spice.

Bottle - Boozy brown sugars, liquorice, cocoa and raisin. Clear brown with no head. Dark sugars, raisin, leather, tobacco, malty, hazelnut and a bitter finish. Very liquor like and complex. Worth drinking. phaleslu (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Small handbottle shared by Keir, who got it from jtclockwork - thanks a ton, Keir via James! You guys are the best. Really. Pours a clear bourbon-like color, maybe a bit darker or more ’burnt’ looking. No head. Good lord. This is intense. Burnt sugars, tobacoo, leather, caramel, and fusel alcohol. Not as smooth or satisfying as most liquors, or at least the bottles of whiskey and shit I have around. It burns the nostril and harshes the palate. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation. Holy cow. So glad I got to try this beast, but it’s a sort of one-time experience. Keir (183) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Thanks James. I’m not sure where to start with this. Clear brown, like flat cola. Nose is sweet, smokey, with alcohol burn. Tastes of sweet smokey alcohol. This is pretty harsh. I’m glad I got to try it, but wow. j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear cola brown. Big warm chocolate, cocoa, warm alcohol and umami and soy sauce. Medium to thick bodied, certainly some alcohol, but it’s not unpleasant in small sips. Soy, mushrooms, tobacco, leather, jerky. Warm and boozy, but lots of chocolate, smoke and tobacco. Lingering alcohol, along with chocolate and cocoa powder. Nice stuff.
