Thanks to jkwalking05 for sharing this bottle.
Pours a murky reddish-brown with a minimal white head. The aroma is strong oak with some vanilla, dark fruit and alcohol. The flavor is strong vanilla, oak and dark fruit, almost like a red wine. Medium mouthfeel, but very creamy. Low carbonation. Just an awesome beer. Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle courtesy of JKwalking05. Hazy dark maroon/ruby pour. No head whatsoever. Stout aroma. Drippy legs. Heavy alcohol aroma, sherry, wine, oak and dark berry. Very woody scent. Taste is rich wood and dark wine. Heavy alcohol feeling. Clay and earth also. Fantastic. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Rating 3100 thanks to jkwalking05. I don’t know if other raters got a different batch, but this was fantastic (abv was listed at 12+%). Pours a completely flat, hazy brown, but with HUGE alcohol legs everywhere (think sake, mead or an sort of hard liquor). Aroma is supreme and supremely complex. Aroma of brandy, oak, bourbon, raisins, dark fruits, richness, dates, leather, butter, spicy (heavy toasted) wood, currants and mass complexity. I could never imagine that the taste would live up to the aroma, but IT DID! Taste of straight madeira/sherry, rich brandy, toffee, dates, awesomeness, sweetness, richness, oak, vinous. Amazing long duration. Caramel and spice. Like I said, awesome! Hugely syrupy and rich body. AMAZINGLY, SURPRISINGLY, AWESOME! Truly one of the best beers that I have ever had!

750 ml bottle shared by the boys at another footbalm drinking expedition. One hell of a beast. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a medium white head. A huge aroma of sweet fruits, vanilla, wood, rich sweet malts. The flavor is great; massive fruity esters, vanilla and oak, slightly tart wine, sweeter candy-like flavors. Strong and excellent.

Bottle at toncatcher’s 2. WeeHeavySD does it again with another quad. Thick dark amber color. Looks like you could float a quarter on it. Sweet and delicious with a hint of booze. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Thanks Agentsteve. Poured hazy dark brown, molasses, dark fruit, wood, honey, little alcohol. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Pours deep brown with a few bubbles in place of a head. HUGE nose with brown sugar, molasses, dried fruit, port wine and oak. Flavor is also port like, with dried fruits, caramel, molasses and some alcohol burn. Honey subtly influencing as well. Creamy mouthfeel. Really nice.
