unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
22oz bottle; Batch 02/1492; Bottled 2/18/2013. Deepest, darkest brown color. Aroma of funk, attic notes, large amounts of dark fruits. Scents of raisins, tart esters, sugary malt. Smells like a sweet Quad. Bold sour taste. IDK if it’s supposed to be this tart. Flavor of vinous grapes & chocolate, dark fruit, fig, dates, pureéd raisins. Finishes with flavors of dark malts syrup, tastes of chocolate, hidden hops. Sticky mouthfeel. It’s gonna take me a while to finish off this sour bottle. Overall, chocolate balsamic. (4064)

Bottle. Dark brown with a thick dense light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, oak, citrus, rye and fruity yeast esters. Flavor of bourbon, rye, oaky vanilla, fruity esters, cherries and mild cocoa. Medium to full body with a soft smooth mouth feel. Unique blend of beers with a great barrel character. I was hoping for more malt, because the alcohol was not well hidden.

Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Wow. This thing is pretty awesome. Dark cola pour with fair ring of tan head. Smells hotter than the actual taste, which is surprisingly smooth despite the abv. The aging has smoothed this out quite nicely. Uber sweet molasses and tobacco and fig and grape juice notes. Maybe just a touch too fruity for my taste, but still really good. i think the 2012 was just a little better though.

Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2013
22oz bottle 4/26/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-50° in Snifter-Pours a dark brown with a small tan covering for a head. Aroma of dried fruit, roasted malt, caramel, fig, and bourbon. Taste of grape juice, dried fruit, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, pomegranate, and rye. This full bodied brew has a lot going on but is still great tasting and it KICKS ASS.

drjay44 (3826) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark brown/black (SRM 40) body....nose is fruits including pomegranate, plum, raisin, brown sugar, hints of whiskey....taste is sweet with tones of molasses, pomegranate, plum, brown sugar, raisin, hints of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light whiskey, vinous tones, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel thick, quite sticky, mildly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light tingle. This is a rich, very sweet, complex, voluptuous beer, that is reminiscent of many dessert wines. It would not be good in a desert. The sweetness, although with many layers, dominates. This is not a beer for those who like dry, hoppy, clean finishing beers. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2013
12 oz bottle with a 22 oz label. Dark brown with a few flecks of froth. Nose is full on bretty funk verging on red wine vinegar. Juicy medium body with a tang. Taste is pomegranate, molasses, sherry, bourbon, grapes and wood. The sourness knits it all together but still too much to jive.

Sounds like it should be a muddled mess but this is some expertly blended stuff. Quite fruity with plum and apple, butterscotch and oak.

Dark black in color... Aroma of coffee, funk, tartness... Flavor is huge... Coffee, chocolate are extremely prevalent and balance the tartness... Amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour that started with a tight white head that mostly disappeared. Big swath of flavors. Coffee and chocolate definitely, but deep dark fruit seems most prevalent. Blunt sour funk surrounding notes of dried blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. Raisins, dates and prunes as well but, to me, the berry flavors are stronger. Some ash and spice as well. Thick body nearly coats the tongue. The bitters balance out the sugars. Big like a Stout, but style-wise very different. Feels like a chewy malt Port cordial.
