The Dan Journal #495. Tasted 1/12/12. 12oz bottle. Pours ruby brown with a bright hue and a medium ring and brainy beige head. Aromas of raisins, port and citrus. Wow! Tart apples and red berries. Full bodied and rather soda sweet! Almost overly so. A ton of sugary malts and candied fruit flavors. Bright and sticky body. Berry fruits and honey. Big and sticky and fruity.

12 oz bottle. Poured a murky brown with a beige head. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, with a sweet finish. Average carbonation, medium body.

Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Infected? Fruity tart, yeast, Brett aromas, saison. Herbal, fruit, Brett tart notes. Some oxidation. Not what it should be, but I probably like it better this way.

Bottle from SJ. Nice notes of Peat, caramel malts, Earth / dirt and hop. Body was medium. Nicely done.

Mahogany brown in color... Aroma of peated malts, smoke, tobacco, humidor... Flavor is fairly thin initially, smoke, peated malts and tobacco, would be pretty bland if it weren't for the barrel aging... Lots of peat on finish... Minimal carbonation, almost like drinking scotch...Decent

"nice use of peat, along with a tobacco aspect to the aroma and flavor that i really dug. if it weren’t for those things, this would be uninspired, but it turned out a nice malt bomb if a little thin."

Travlr (26198) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Clear amber color, tiny off white head. Aroma of perfume and caramel. Taste is sweet and plain, slight bitter finish.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
12oz bottle -

Aroma and flavor had some oxidation and while sometimes I think oxidation can be nice in certain styles (including scotch ales), because this was an ale of what thought was on the "delicate" side, the oxidation didn’t help it. But, still a really nice beer.
