Farewell Jack bottleshare at Craft Clerkenwell. Huge thanks to Leighton and his Herculean efforts to obtain this whale. Opaque dark brown beer, a few pale tan bubbles. Palate is light and mildly dry. Modest fine carbonation. Smooth but rich dark malts. Wonderfully well integrated mellow fruity bourbon. Port Wine berry fruits bring up the rear accompanied by mild dark chocolate. A little spice in the light finish. For me, one of the best from Hill Farmstead.

Bottle shared in London - picked up in a trade. Pours rich black brown with a dense, lasting foamy tan head. The nose is incredibly dynamic, with notes of burnt wood, toffee, cocoa and rich, ripe berries. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, with notes of burnt wood, dark chocolate, charred ham, alcohol, figs, chocolate, all balanced out with a bit of earthy bitterness. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation and silky texture. Warming finish with decadent cocoa notes, cherry, further burnt wood, creamy chocolate, dates, berries. Great balance with just moderate suggestions of alcohol kick. Wonderful confluence of toffee, chocolate and dark fruits. Superlative beer.

Bottle. Thanks Jake! Pours black tan head. Nose/taste of bourbon, port, roast chocolate, vanilla, oak and brownie- smooth - medium body. djd07 (16317) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a motor oil with paperthin tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong burnt malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, toffee. Thick mouthfeel with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, oak, and vanilla. Wow, blown away by this one. Miles away from the port and regular. Really enjoyed this.

Huge thanks to Leighton for this .rar ity. It pours near black with a small beige head. The nose is rather soft, sweet roast, juicy, jammy fruits, blackberry, plum, candy, fruit cake and some vanilla. The taste is slick, sweet, juicy, plum, prune, jammy berry, cocoa, fruit cake, chocolate, earthy roast, coffee and warming alcohol with a sweet, fruity finish. Medium - full body and moderate carbonation. Quite sweet and sticky, but still good fun. I still think I prefer regular Damon over this though.
