Opaque dark brown beer, decent pale tan head. Softish palate, light, very mild carbonation. Smooth mellow dark malts with a little dark chocolate. Rich honey underneath. Very pleasant mellow brandy with a light barrel wood. Finishes semi dry. Hangs together really well, the juxtaposition of honey and brandy works very well. Touch of aniseed.

Theydon_Bois (17973) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle during RBWG Booze Buse 20/02/15 thanks to whomever supplied this juan. Murky chestnut brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is rich malt, dark fruit shreds, booze fumes, barrel notes, spice, dates. Taste comprises fruit cake, toffee, dates, figgy jam, light spice, toasted brown sugar, hint of oxidisation creeping in. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Decent BA BW but perhaps starting to wain a little now.

brokensail (16249) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Brownish in color with a finger of khaki colored head. The aroma is certainly of brandy. There is a bit of oak and vanilla in there, but not quite as much of the usual strong caramel/toffee aromas. Just sweet, really. Maybe brown sugar? The flavor is similar in that sense: very sweet. Some caramel and toffee notes, maybe some hop notes in the background. There is quite a bit of brandy flavor, though, which is nice.

bhensonb (14509) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours a rather opaque brown with a slight, transient tan head. Aroma of treacle and brown sugar (oxymoron?) with some medium dark fruits. Near full bodied. Flavor is ripe for oxidation - might take a few years. Its treacle, date/raisin, oak. Theres a brandy suggestion. Theres no real heat impact. Its nowhere near bitter; its pretty far from dry. To some extent it resembles aged Fullers Vintage Ale. This is a good beer to wrap around oneself.
