TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a deep blackish brown hue, firmer haze with some nice brownish glow on the edges. Not opaque, some frothy tannish head atop stays as a mellow ring, laces small. Aromas are cocoa, distinct peaty whiskey, oak, some warmth. Gentle iodine, toast and roast, mellow warmth and vanilla elements play second fiddle, some toffee and gentle nuttiness. Initial is medium bodied, a touch of red fruit, toast and toffee meet some vanilla, oak and gentle peaty element coming on. Subtle roast. The middle gets warm, a touch thin, firmer peaty whiskey element, some gentle warmth, a bit fuzzy and underbodied. A bit warm, cherrywood smoked and gentle red fruit, toffee and toast. Backend is dry, a bit warm, more peaty whiskey and gentle toastiness grows. A touch thin, the finish is warm as the barrel really takes over. Ok. Inbreak (6827) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2017

Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet boozy, caramel malts, oak, whisky, vanilla, dark sugar, toffee, chocolate, grass. Taste is slightly sweet grainy, butterscotch, toffee, dark sugar, vanilla, oak, leafs, whisky, grain, chocolate pudding, caramel. Little bitterness, dry oaky mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little too boozy.

Flippy howler from Mr. Hopscotch and served in my gnome tulip: Lovely deep muddy brown with an lasting creamy tan head and good lace. The aroma has huge whiskey and charred oak notes, very earthy, very toffee, very leathery, moderately sherry and figgy, with classic Olden School oxidization. The taste develops a rich malt forefront support by dark fruits and extreme earthy components including oak, smoke and spice. The mouth feel is very lush, oily and sticky as well as warming, a true sipper brew than could have been 15% abv and would not have shocked me in the least. Lovely brew and a fine ENGLISH STRONG ALE, thanks again Eric. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, molasses, caramel, whiskey, with a hint of coconut. It pours a dark brown with a hint orange highlights and a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with chocolate, molasses, and caramel. The finish has some raisin, roast, whiskey, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty and dry aroma. Starts intense malty, fine spicy, notes of strong coffee. Finish earthy-malty, more dry. Good! Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Thanks to errl for sharing this growler. Brown pour with a small tan head. This one is very complex. I get some nice dark fruit and peat malt notes up front as well as some oak. There is also a good bit of caramel and toffee as well as some whiskey notes. The peat malt really adds a lot to the beer but it not overpowering in any way. Easy to drink for being nearly 10 percent. Great beer. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2013
