THANK YOU GULLY, YOU STUPID BLOND SHORT PERSON!!!!
Black to a ruby brown color (yes I do mean ruby brown) with a thick bubble ring clinging to the edge of the glass what is surprising given the massive alcohol content. Aroma shocked me with how mild it is with very subtle hints of the monster alcohol hidden inside. Earth some and some sweetness with flowery alcohol can be smelt. Taste is very good and very similar to the aroma but more complex. I swear I taste something I want to call cinnamon bun but I know that’s not correct, lots of dirt, flower/perfume alcohol but not harsh, grape juice and mild smoke all show up. This is so viscous its coating the back of my throat like cough medicine. I think that odd taste that I first thought was cinnamon bun is actually Cranberry. Awesome brew, glad I had a chance to sample it.

11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Let’s just start by saying Wow... poured cola like black, nice brown tan head an a lot of lacing. Aroma definitely oak and booze and quite strong some malts too (but very slightly). Taste is however very sweet and nicely balanced, roasted malts, very complex and definitely a sipper but very nice over all, this one is quite enjoyable.

Bottle share. Thanks GothGargoyle! 2012. Aroma of young prune juice, red grape, alcohol, wood. Taste is oddly salty, a bit tart, and sweet. Sticky. Yummy. kustie (1278) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2017

LR! Bottle from Fred at Beverages 4 Less consumed by myself, which was probably not the best of ideas. Pours a thin mahogany color with a fizzy cola colored head of foam. Smells like Bells 9000 -- loaded with molasses and brewers licorice. Tastes of both with added notes of green foliage (spruce?), alcohol, coffee grounds, and oak. This is a hell of a beer. I would gladly have another -- just not tonight. Silvan7 (1264) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle @ home. Colore marrone scuro con riflessi rubino. impenetrabile.
Schiuma beige finissima, decisamente cremosa e poco persistente. profuma di caffè torrefatto, di vino passito , e di uvetta. il profumo dell’alcool è intensissimo. Sorprendentemente nascosto il gusto dell’alcool sviluppa però un calore deciso. In bocca ricorda il vinsanto toscano, la frutta candita ed un caffè ben zuccherato. Piacevolissima. Equilibrata e armonica. ComradeK (1256) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a totally opaque black, with a yellow-beige head. Dark, rich and sweet aromas abound, with cranberries and port coming through strongly. More sweet berry flavours mingle with a hint of peppery hops in the initial taste. The mid-palate mixes Irish coffee with port, and the finish is full of a lovely alcoholic warmth. A delightful beer, full of flavours not normally found in beer, it is, however, one that must be drunk slowly, not the least because of its huge 18.2% ABV! It is nonetheless a lovely brew, well worth seeking out. yiannnos (1254) - , CYPRUS - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle, might have been aged for a while as it was a lot smoother than i remember it. This one had a strange taste, something like pickled chocolate, very nice! angelkostvo (1247) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 1, 2013
