Bottle. Red brown colour with a nice fizzy head. Lovely aroma of heavy caramel, malt, oak, dried fruit and very hoppy. Great flavour of raisons, heavy malt, coconuts and ends up alcoholic. hotstuff (5173) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle from sprinkle marked 10%ABV.
Thanks, Mike! Small tan head that mostly diminished with poor lacing, mostly opaque with a little light coming through to see some floaties along with some carbonation, and a brown hue. Nose was sweet, dark fruits, caramel, malty, and vinuous. Flavor was sweet, thick, somewhat chewy, vinuous, and dark fruits. Tingly, thick mouthfeel. Medium-full body.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2009 A murky red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with a very powerful alcohol note, but also strong notes of over ripe fruits, malt, caramel, and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet malty with lots of over ripe fruits, and caramel, leading to a nice hoppy end, with the alcohol burning the throat. I believe this will give You the warmth even in Alaska. The mouthfeel is very thick - I’ll describe it as an alcohol soup - how ever that’ll work, I have no idea? Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006

Hot, boozy, sweet malt aroma is quite fruity with plenty of grassy, vegetal, herbal resinous hop character. Opaque brown body is topped by a low tan head that recedes to ring. Thick, sweet maple, berries, chocolate and cherries with a light roasty component and lingering sweetness. Pleasant fruity aftertaste, but I feel like I could breathe fire. Alcohol is quite apparent. Strong warming. Thick, syrupy texture to the medium full body. Hot, hot, hot. Bottle (trade, May-05) sampled with MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Siroy. Thanks, hopdog!
