Hazy amber beer. No head. Palate is light and semi dry. A little carbonation. Spicy alcohol. Caramel aniseed. Tracesof chocolate and dark fruits. Spicy warming dark finish. Wow - still packing a punch. Fairly drinkable. Leighton (22298) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20k tasting - London. A big cheers to Ken, one of RateBeer’s most generous members, who fittingly shared this beer with the group. Pours unclear, deep brown with no head. The nose is lightly roasty, with definite notes of alcohol, dried dark fruits and scorched earth. Big sweet flavour, a little ashy, with more old and dried out dark fruits, some berries, faint cocoa, rich alcohol. Full bodied and fairly chewy, with soft carbonation. Hot on the finish with further earthy bitterness, leathery fruits, touches of toffee. Good stuff overall. It may have once been worthy of being one of RB’s highest-rated beers, but at this point it’s just a pretty good barley wine. That said, it has held up reasonably well over the years. Thanks again to Ken for the opportunity to try this one! Theydon_Bois (20602) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle split at Madmitch76 20K tasting, massive thanks to the ever generous Ken for supplying this juan, 15/01/16.
Light black with a moderately appointed tan covering that dissipates to edgeing.
Nose carries a big dollop of malt, light smoke, chocolate, bourbon infuse, burnt treacle toffee, raisens, stewed dark fruit rinds.
Taste drops away a touch from the nose, dark fruit compote, light smoke, dates, fruit cake, tinged with oxidisation, black forest gateaux, molasses, tobacco, vinous.
Full bodied, slick feel, warming alcohol in the close.
Great to try and not bad at all age considered, has held up well, oxidisation is light. ABV is well masked, though will have dropped away, barrelling subtle ...see ABV. Great to tre this beast and glad to have done so now and not in a few years time ! harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Madmitch 20k tasting. Black dark brown colour no head. Soy sauce bovril aroma. Some heat. Some chocolate some soy sauce. OK quite hot. It’s alright. Not the best beer of the day.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours a deep dark mahogany with no head. Aroma is decadent as hell, with dark dried fruits, toffee, molasses and alcohol. Flavour is super hot, with smoke, leather, followed by treacle toffee. The alcohol is still super hot after all these years, though as it warms, it’s actually less abrasive. It’s basically Adam on steroids. Fantastic and what a treat of a unique experience. Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Dark brown with burgundy highlights. Intense whiskey, tamari, burnt plum, and alcohol in the aroma...now that’s attention-grabbing. Thick, oily, but lively, in that Gale’s POA sort of way. Flavour brings toffee, Highland malt, more tamari, dark fruits, chocolate chip cookies. Smooth, sweet, gorgeous. As giant beers, not only does this measure up in terms of complexity but also in terms of balance and drinkability. Hot damn. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle @ Hair of the Dog. Somehow managed to be the 100th rating for this. Not sure that really means anything. Thanks to all the fellow dumbasses who also blew way too much money on this. Flat and black in color with no head. Big bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and a touch of soy sauce. Some notes of peat and smoke. Lots of chocolate, in fact. Decent bit of burnt sugar as well. There is a lot of peat and smoke at first, followed by big time chocolate oxidation. Caramel sweetness, some dark fruits, soy sauce, and a decent bit of booze. Chocolate covered almonds and blueberry. Pretty interesting stuff and honestly way better than I expected. Ferris (16489) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 Bottle - Vintage 1994 - Dark caramels, sark sugar, touch of toffee. Deep dark brown with no head. Sweet, charred wood, char, fish sauce and a long finish. No heat in the taste. Very nice considering the age.
