Expensive bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam
vintage 2011, 13.5% ABV

Dark brown color, with basically no head, just a few bubbles on the borders. The aroma is strong, roasted malts and phenol, dark chocolate; peculiar, not amazing. Roasted malt and coffee flavor, strong body, but just moderate sweetness; light liquorice and phenol, very light vanilla; quite strong alcohol warmth.
No elegance, too much phenol, and excessive overall.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Not much head produced, some beige bubbles though, clear, dark brown body underneath. The booze on the nose is sure present, but it just fills out the blanks, if any, left by the caramel, vanilla, oxidation, dried fruits, hints of chocolate and coffee and oxidation. The alcohol is much more evident in the flavor, sort of pushing, but far from annoying. Oxidation hints, some vanilla and a good dash of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied, warming and low on carbonation. Long, warming finish. A really nice beer, not sure if it deserves a top 50 rating, but its sure nice. 110819

mcberko (16651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
2011 Vintage. 12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours a dark brown with an amber tinge and a small beige head. Nose is full of bourbon barrels, English malt, brown sugar and vanilla - quite complex and sweet. Flavour reveals a very sweet bourbon bomb, but with loads of depth and complexity - with lots of vanilla, tons of bourbon barrels, brown sugar, caramel, English malts, a bit of dried dark fruits and alcohol. Palate is intensely syrupy, and while extremely sweet, not cloying. An enjoyable winter warmer and slow hot sipper, perfect for being around a campfire, though it is definitely brutal and a bit over the top. Still, for what it is, solid stuff.

brokensail (16393) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a murky dark brown color with a small layer of off-white/kahki head. S: Smells like big time -bals. Tongs of bourbon and vanilla with a touch of oak. Lots of great dark fruits like raisins and dates, brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. A touch of sherry in there as well. T: Damn this is delicious. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and plenty of vanilla. Lots of bourbon, a bit of oak, maybe even some coconut in there too. A nice chocolatey oxidation to it and some more of the sherry flavor. M: The body is medium to full with a smooth and sufficient carbonation. D: Its kind of boozy, but damn is this stuff is tasty. I could drink a bottle of this almost any day.

Draft. Thanks to hopscotch for the long sought after label! Pours dark brown, almost black. Nose/taste of plum brandy, toffee, caramel malt, chocolate and wooden barrel. Very well balanced. Amazing.
