Bottle. Awesome aroma - nuts, dried fruit, honey, overripe pineapple, thick malty layer, dates and raisins, raisin bread. Complex, amazing. And then comes the flavour. Syrupy, sticky sweet, disjointed alcoholic bitterness, with the alcohol cutting through the flavour and erasing any depth but also complexity. The flavour basically shatters the promises given by the aroma. Rubin77 (2876) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 5, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 On tap at Tap and Handle in Fort Collins. Dark caramel brown pour. Aroma is nutty, caramel, a little earthy. Taste follows but more earthy than anything. Bit of a miss for me. notalush (5985) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle - turbid orange - nearly flat - heavily oxidized, with strong notes of nearly rotting fruits, stale hops, sherry - I feel like I should cut it some slack because it's a couple of years old, but stuff like this is designed to mature with time - flat, oxidized, cardboard beer - a damn shame, as I see the potentially great beer underneath. stevoj (5960) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle from Jeremy. Murky Amber, small skin of head. Aroma is fruity, apples, boozy. Taste gets a little Woody, leathery, tobacco. Starts nice, ends a bit harsh.

Bottle pours out copper amber color topped with a sand head. Nose is barrel sweet caramel toffee and some barrel heat. Taste is more of the big sweet malts caramel toffee some barrel. Mortlach (2536) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 9, 2017
330ml bottle. Ambrata carica, torbida, schiuma bianca leggera e poco persistente. Al naso sentori di alcol, caramello, vaniglia, botte, solvente, ossidazione. In bocca è dolce all'attacco con un finale amaro abbastanza deciso, legno, astringenza. Corpo pieno, carbonazione leggera. Birra complessa, da centellinare. wekker84 (2610) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2017
