ICEatALAMO (1352) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 The pour is black with little head. The aroma is mostly that of sweetness. The taste is full bodied, and has a lot of heat (rememberf this is a ’12 bottle). Seems like age would do this beast well. But at the same time it is a damn tasty beer right off the back. The middle of the drink you get a lot of heat that follows it throughout the rest of the drink. A decent amount of sweetness, that is why I could understand that some people may not get it. The alcohol is somewhat hidden because there is so much going on. A lot of prunes and dark fruit in the taste for sure. A mild vanilla. Overall a solid beer.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Bottle pour. Almost sour on the nose - intense but hard to identify. Maybe the barrel. Full bodied. Medium sour flavor. Coffee. Intense. Really good.

2015 Bardzo miło pachnie. Wanilia, orzechy laskowe, mleczna czekolada. Generalnie fajna beczka która podbiła w aromacie równie fajne czekoladowe nuty. W smaku poza jedną kwestią też jest fajnie bo jest kawa, pierniki, znowu czekolada i melasa. Jednakże dużo niszczy alkohol, który jest zdecydowanie zbyt nachalny. No ale coś tam fajnego z tego piwa można jeszcze wydobyć.

Erzengel (9329) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
19.5%. Extreme great deep fresh nose. Great deep fresh intense beginning. Lots of deep brown sugars, plums, raisins, chocolate. Fantastic deep, nice brown molasses with an extreme deep aftertaste.

Edycja 2014. Aromat: intensywny bourbon, w smaku bourbonowa wanilia, czekoladki z wiśniami, marcepan, czuć, że piwo ma potężną moc, ale za cholere nie 19,7%! Doskonale się ułożyło, mam szacunek do takich bomb, choć nie są do końca w moim guście.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2017 Piękny aromat likieru czekoladowego. W smaku podobnie, ale z nutami mlecznej czekolady oraz kawy. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający.

furthur (1225) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle dates 2013, finally getting to this. Black beer, slight gusher, head crashed. Aroma is toast, cookies, whiskey, molasses, shoyu, vanilla, dried cherries. Taste is chocolate, cookies, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, dried cherries. Palate is thick and chewy, carbonation subdued. The taste is just intense, a bit sweet, but wow!

Pitch black, sticky. Moderate oxidzied, caramel, burnt, dark chocolate and toffee notes. Some plums, vanilla, oaky character. Moderately boozy in taste and aroma. Too boozy, very sweet, but nice oxidized, organic and sugary character.
