Draught at Churchkey. Walnut colored pour. Nose and flavor are marked with present but uninteresting chestnut, sweet spice, caramel, and plum-like dark fruit. Not bad, but ehhh not exciting. magdalar (535) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle pour. Pours a clear amber with a thin dissipating white head. Smells of fruit, red, semi dried; caramel, malt, yeast. Tastes rather alcohol rich, sweet, with an lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, medium active carbonation, oily texture. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Its tasty. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
Tap at Blind Tiger. Reddish brown with a small white head. Nose is fruity and nutty, some spice (nutmeg?), cranberry, wood. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests, maple syrup, cinnamon, toasty malts. Medium bodied, a little sticky on the tongue. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Poured a clear amber color with no visible bubble... still in fact. Aromas were sweet vanilla, winey, nutty and boozy. Taste was alot of the same rich mouthfeel with a bit cloying but a perfect dessert beer. Really getting the fortified madierized merlot barrel. Very complex not something id want a pint of but rather a small snifter after a light meal.
