simontomlinson (149) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Light beige, thin head stayed well on a reddy mahogany still body. Stewed fruits, raisin, sugar & grape aroma. Thick oily body, smooth - feels just like Castrol GTX does when you get it on the hands! Subtle to the front with malt & caramel but this quickly envelops the tongue with a rich dark fruit blast, cherry, plum, grape & vanilla and then a boozy, peppery aft. This gives a real warming to the cheeks.

nihtila (3215) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Keg at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Vintage 2013 - I was sure this is BBA but the bartender told me it is their own vintage they have aged for three years. Pours very dark brown, small dark brown head. Nose is sweet bourbon, dark roast, sweet malts, vanilla. Tastes sweet chocolate, big but gentle barrel oak, vanilla, nice balance although boozy warmth is also present. Excellent stuff.

Muggus69 (2269) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. 2015 vintage BB 12/18 Deep thick tawny body, small ring of tan foam sits atop. Aroma is rich - dark brown caramel, toasted nuts, honey, cocoa, sultana & vinous dark fruits. Big rich syrupy body, low carbonation, lusciously warming & inviting. Steps up a gear on the body - loads of rich, sweet burnt caramel, toasted nuts, chocolate, port, touch of smoke on a warming, reasonably bitter finish. Lovely great big winter warmer.
