330ml bottle from Bierkompass

Vertical with Back Room (Port version) - Pours dark reddish brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma of vinous notes, berries, caramely malts, sweet syrup and wood. Taste is sweet, sticky, malty and woody with notes of berries, vinous notes, syrup and caramely toffee. Finish is sweet, syrupy and woody with hints of vinous berries. A lot more heavier and sweeter than the port version.

Excellent in all respects, fruity with prunes/dates/raisins to the fore. The alcohol is very even and balanced.

Dark mahogany with light ringed head. Rich dark berry and wooden nose. Firm, sticky nice sprite oxidisation and syrupy sweet and sunny towards the finish. Limey dark chocolate. Syrupy, tight and peppercorn crunch linger. Really nice, can’t be bad without a bit of age.

Bottle, Cheers BENNY BOY, November Tasting.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Caramel, brown sugary, some wood, and dark fruits. Lighter vinous quality in the tastes. On the sweeter side ... a enjoyable sipper.

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Very dark amber, brickish highlights, low golden head. Sweet malty aroma, burnt sugars abound, dark fruits. Sticky, sweet, richly malty palate with flavours of molasses, brown sugar, dates, toast. Lip smackingly sweet sipper with enormous depth of flavour. Loved it.
