Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an almost clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a tiny - almost absent - off-white head. Rich aroma of thick, sweet overripe fruit. Very solid body, pours thick and syrupy with hardly any carbonation. Nuts and thick caramel with a warming alcohol finish. Not too bad really - basically let’s just call it a Barley Wine. 250313 madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012

The ChrisO small midweek tasting. Thanks to Colin for bringing one of my wants along to the tasting. Clear dark red - amber beer. Small pale tan head. A smooth viscous palate that is none the less quite light. Smooth BA malts, vanilla, toasted coconut, sweet dark malts. Coffee and smooth bourbon. Really well joined up and sumptuous treat amongst all the vinegar beers. Bit squiffy when I had this - must try again, but I really enjoyed this one.
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting, London. Pours dark brown with a light, frothy head. Big dark sugar and dark malt nose, some licorice. Stupidly sweet flavor, some tangy dark fruits, licorice, brown sugar, raisins. Big bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with ripe fruits, more raisins and brown sugar, light dirt, mild earthy bitterness. As a slow-sipping dessert beer, this one is delicious; subtle it is not.

Bottle at home - 11/06/12 thanks to Sam for an IP trade in Denver.
Massive dark brown body verging on black with a small brown head that soon loosens to nyadda.
Dark dark aromas in the form of molasses, dried berry fruits, figs, prunes, dark sugar, malt, toffee apple and a whiff of booze.
Heavy malts and alcohol in the taste with a sweet backbone of dark sugars, dark fruits and a little chocolate.
Full bodied beer, limited carbonation and a well balanced beer with the alcohol, whilst obvious, is well disguised for 15%.
Would have again (I have a 2nd bottle) but will probably share as this was not a beer to be rushed. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle at "30 år av surt". Black beer with a beige head. Vinous toffee aroma, some alcohol, chocolate, fig notes. Fig flavor, fruity, fades, chocolate, milky, sweetish, syrupy, alcohol. Sweetish fig finish. mcberko (17837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
22 oz. bottle, split 4 ways, pours a deep dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits (cherry, dates, figs), toffee, caramel malt, some roasted notes and a bit of floral. Flavour of dates, figs, cherry and other dark fruits, roasted caramel malts, grape juice, brandy, but little booze coming through surprisingly - how is this 15%? Finishes with dried fruits (figs, dates) with almost indiscernible alcohol. Very complex, but quite sweet. Nice slow sipper. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2014
