Freakout (16) - Alaska, USA - SEP 18, 2012
2011 Bottle. Amazing beer...not sure where to begin. Aroma is a dense plum and tobacco smoke blend...heavy fruit. The taste is a rich dense raisin flavor with overtones of bourbon, reduced fruits and smokey goodness. Such a rich palate...this baby outshines some old ports Ive had. I love this beer. Thanks Neeps.

Listigovers (1056) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
Tastes strongly of raisin and maple syrup. Smells sort of winey, burnt wine hahaha... Wine and brandy on the palate, a big rich, malty, creamy, and surprisingly mellow body. Sweet liquor like sipper, medicinal, vanilla, wood, and caramel. Very good.

aleigator (904) - GERMANY - JAN 22, 2017
Pours entirely flat, with no head to speak of, almost black, with a brighter hazelnut quality to it. Has a prominent, wooden alcohol bite on the nose, with lots of oak and earth, toning down the spices of the barrel. A toffee note evolves from this, sweet and rustic, with a dried raisin peak and lots of toasted coconut. Pretty complex, a new aroma nuance seems to be found, everytime I put my nose in the glass. Drinks silk and slick with no hint of carbonation, showcasing each and every flavor quality. Its mouthfeel is medium bodied and entertaining till the last moment. The beers taste is not as complex as its nose, it got a defining silkness, together with a very powerful barrel, soothed by the soft mouthfeel. Chocolate pudding with some banana in it, bakers chocolate, molasses, black pepper and licorice. A charred wood bark quality sets in, together with toffee and the initially established silkness. A nice chocolate and wood defined alcohol dryness results from this, warming and flavorful with more toffee and a caramel sweet finish. Sweet, boozy, silk and oaken, these flavors define the beer, put into perfect balance to each other due to the soothing, silk mouthfeel.

nickd717 (4429) - Sofia, BULGARIA - DEC 31, 2016
Draft pour at the brewery. Darkest brown with a small tan head. Aroma is very complex, toffee, roasty notes, bourbon, oak, coconut, vanilla. Flavor is very well balanced, mildly sweet, nice heat, touch of roasty bitterness. Fuller body, nice feel, average carbonation, not too hot. Every bit what I hoped it would be.

MotherBrother (935) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2016
Pour a slightly murky dark reddish brown, with no head at all. Aroma has tons of vanilla, dark fruits, slight marzipan, slight wood, leather, slight booze, boozy raisins. Taste is pretty sweet, with faint bitter notes. Semi full, slick and rather oily body, with as good as no carbonation. I rather like this
