Pours a dark amber brown colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted nuts and dark chocolate. Flavour of strong bitter floral hops, dark chocolate, toasted nuts, grass, caramel, grapefruit and syrup. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sweet, malty, strong bitter finish. Enjoyable.
650ml bottleRando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of sweet syrupy malts, toffee, caramel and sugar. Taste is sweet and sticky with notes of syrupy malts, toffee and caramel. Finish is stingy and sticky with hops, warming alcohol, syrupy malts and caramel. Too sweet for my taste.
Bottle pours medium brown with light brown head, nice lacing. Aroma sweet caramel with pine hops. Initial taste of sweet caramel /toffee, a little bourbon with a bitter oak and resinous hop finish. Have to say I didn’t enjoy the finish at all, an unpleasant aftertaste.. Nice thick palate, soft carbonation. Cooperii (61) - California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle poured a murky brown with a light brown head that settled fairly quickly to a rimming of fine bubbles and good lacing. A dusty aroma up front followed by strong fig notes and sweet maltyness with subtle hoppy undertones. Flavors of sweet dark fruit (figs and chery), bitter malts, caramel followed by subtle notes of citrus. The Finish; the nose isn’t it’s best, the front end flavors are ok...but the back end and trailing after tastes are where it’s at with this beer, let this one sit out for 20 or so minutes before opening to get the most out of it! neepsntatties (2019) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour... Dark amber with no head. Nose... Bourbon and brown sugared dates. Palate...light CO2, a little oxidation but otherwise quite bitter with light molasses, Bourbon liqueur, sailor jack and a somewhat thin mouthfeel, though it does not distract from an otherwise enjoyable experience.

The pour is mahogany in color with a khaki head. Toffee and bready malts with a nice fruitiness. A touch of roasted malts, lots of toast, mild vanilla, and some floral hops. Caramel, cocoa powder, and toast are prominent on the palate. Some light vanilla, floral and pine hops with a light bitterness. Moderate sweetness of molasses and a hint of dark fruits. Good, but not as good as Old Inventory.
