I got to try this, fuck, over a year ago. Maybe a 2-3 oz sample pour from a buddy. I didn’t take any notes, but I got to thinking I should just enter it and maybe someday I’ll get to try it again and do a proper rating, but I was at work so I didn’t have time. I just remember it being very dark brown with basically no head and having a very complex aroma with dark fruit and some smoke notes being predominant. It was very sweet and the body was heavy, oily, and soft to almost not even carbonated. It was a great experience and one I am thankful for being a part of. Someday perhaps I will get to try it again. But until then, Dave’s not here, man. Errl (2442) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015

12 oz bottle at the Hair of the Dog, Portland, OR. 2013 vintage.
Dark reddish brown colour with no head. Plums, figs, prunes, more dark fruits, sweetness, mild chocolate notes, sweet malt and dessert wine in the aroma. The flavour is... out if this world. Amazing flavour of dark fruits, sweetness, brandy, chocolate, malt and all the goodness in the world.
So so so tasty! I'm willing to sell my soul now!
