Bottle. Pours the color of dried blood -- rich, thick and solidly crimson. The head dissipates quickly. Although the aroma on this beer is severely restrained, this drinks with a kick-in-the-pants richness rare to beer. Full of rich, dark fruit, caramel syrup, and evergreen wood chips. Brilliant.

Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Dark fruit aroma. Flavors of dark fruits and candi sugar with a little heat from the alcohol. Medium body with lively carbonation. Pretty good. mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep and dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is fig, banana, vanilla, and alcohol. Sweet and malty, almost no hop present in the flavor. Rich in dark fruits such as plum and cherry, a bit of sweet malt, and a touch of alcohol heat towards the end. Very light and easy to drink, alcohol definitely warms as it goes down. Love it, wish it was a bit less expensive. wetherel (1883) - Cupertino, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Bonus bottle from pwoods?. Opened at PP bottle shop. I suppose this is a Westy 12 clone. I’d be curious to side by side (who wouldn’t). Lots of banana in the aroma. Lightly sweet. Classic surprizing lighter body given the high OG. Lots of lasting creamy carbonation. Easy to drink. Very good. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2009
bottle poured a nutty brown in color with an off white head that took a very brisk pour. aroma has plumb, raisin, light spice, brown sugar, a touch of cherry, and some faint toasted wood. mouth feel is medium level but it coats well and has an interesting softness. flavor is nice and rich, brown malt comes in, cherry, raisin, plumb, plenty of sweetness, and some alcohol kick in the finish. certainly a big one and there is plenty of sweetness.
