12 oz. bottle shared by jcwattsrugger. 2013 vintage. Dark mahogany pour. Little to no head, ok, perhaps a thin beige ring. Aroma is rich and boozy. Caramel, toffee, maple syrup and a heady dose of alcohol. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Slow sips net you a gut warming glow. All I can say is Wow! and thanks for sharing John.

2013 vintage shared by Jcwattsrugger, thanks for the opportunity! Big sweet sugary alcohol touch of oxidation. Nice brew.

From a 12 fl. oz bottle. 2013 batch. Shared by jcwattsrugger. Deep amber brown pour. The nose smells boozy but sweet at the same time. Barley malts are in the air. Full body. The sweet maltiness of the taste tends to override the boozy quality up front. Incredibly nice but a bit too sweet for my liking.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 12 oz. bottle supplied by jcwattsrugger - many thanks! Consumed with the NH Harley Davidson crew at Martha’s. To medium-sized snifter, itburnt s a oaken light brown; no carbonation to speak of. Aromas of burnt caramel, butterscotch, stale maple sugar, English noble hops, 2-Row, graham root, roasted marshmallows, and dried lavender. Tastes the same with the addition of golden raisins, sweet malts, mashed bananas, Ceylon black tea, and breadcrumbs. Sweet, syrupy, and delicately warming. Only a bit oxidized.

Vignale (3841) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Flaska från ölbutikken 2011 drucken med ölföreningen. 13,5% abv. Ett massivt öl med en gigantisk kropp som gör att alkoholstyrkan är helt integrerad. Silkeslen fyllig munkänsla, söt men välbalanserad. Komplex söt smakbild med stor fatkaraktär. Bourbon, vanilj, cognac, smörkakor, fudge, marsipan och torkad frukt inlagd i cognac. Fantastiskt god.

La bière est d’un brun assez boueux, et aucune mousse ou presque n’ose se pointer le bout du nez. Des fruits confits, du caramel brûlé et des noix constituent le bouquet costaud de cette Old Ale plutôt âgée, encore étiquettée comme étant la 4th D. Certes, c’est vieux, mais c’est précisément le genre de bière qui atteint son apogée après plusieurs années de patience. En bouche, c’est liquoreux lourd et bien gras, mais si agréable à boire. La madérisation est amorcée, mais son effet s’amalgame bien au goût sucré de cassonade et de noisettes grillées. Sublime.

2009 12oz bottle to snifter. Completely flat. Syrupy sweet. Huga maltiness. Minimal bitterness. Past it’s prime I think but delicious.

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Toffee, dark fruit, molasses, cocoa and raisin. Murky brown with almost no head. Tons of sweet dark sugars, molasses, liquorice and a long sweet sugary raisin bitter finish. Superbly rich and complex.
