Bottle - purple pour - minimal head - nose of fig, caramel, treacle, plum, cherry, mild oxidation - moderate carbonation - sweet up front, with a lot of caramelized sugars, but not cloying - dark fruit through the middle, followed by some medium-full yeast expression - dust, cobweb, a swelling spiciness that becomes strong, but not overpowering in the finish - light oxidation on the tail end - not bad. djd07 (14369) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber with small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is candy sugar, yeast, fruity malt. Light malt with strong candy sugar, boozy, yeast, light dryness, ok. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Tasting at Josh’Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
Brown color, flat look, a few sparse bubbles. A bit malty, bit the kind of stake malt; the flavor is better than the aroma because it has a nice presence of raisins.
Decent, not impressive.
Cloudy light brown, brown sugar and light smoke. Raisins, light brown sugars, and a touch of caramelized fruits. mcberko (17328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
500mL bottle, pours a deeper reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma is super fruity, with caramel, stone fruits, and a some cough syrup. Flavour is fairly boozy, with caramel, dark fruits, and loads of alcohol. Rather not even for a quad - but it’s not really too detracting, other than losing complexity. Interesting stuff. Nice.

Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a grape glow and a very thin tan head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, pit fruits, raisins, figs, cedar and a touch of grain. Full-bodied; Assertive grain flavour with a bit of caramel and a lot of pit fruits, but the whiskey and alcohol flavour comes through a lot, with a deep strong and bitter finish. Aftertaste shows mostly sweet flavours from the prunes, figs and pit fruits, but the alcohol and okay/cedar flavour also shows through. Overall, a strong beer with some good flavours, but perhaps too deep and pungent with not enough complexity for the style. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US8,25 sampled at home on Mother’s Day (for Mor/Mor, which of course in Norwegian - and probably other languages, is Grandmother) in 2015 - on 10-May-2015. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Poured from bottle, pours a murky brown with an off white head, aroma is very sweet with lots of dark fruit and caramel coming through, the flavor has a very sweet candy sugar front end with a malty finish, kind of a thin mouthfeel. beerguy00 (186) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Pours a nice dark hazy reddish-brown with a light tan head. Aroma is malty but very "hot" smelling from the alcohol. Flavor matches with a bit of caramel and butterscotch. I’d like to try this again after is has been aged. RedSox2004 (1869) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Medium brown with a small head and moderate lace. Aromas of dark fruits with a hint of alcohol coming through at the end. Flavors of dark fruits - plums, figs, cherries. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel (but a bit of alcohol burn) and a lingering sweetness, almost tart, in the finish. Travlr (24315) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Murky amber brown color. Aroma of butterscotch. Taste is similar. Pretty average.
