Bottle shared, thanks Jonno. Wow, this is a beast, feels like a barrel-aged spiced Porto wine, lots of dark cherry, oak and whiskey, long complex finish. Devilicious stuff, to be sipped and enjoyed at a gentleman’s pace. willisread (3341) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jonno. This bottle is 8 to 9 years old. Lots of booze and dark fruit in the nose: plum, raisin, prune, cassis. Lots of deep, rich flavors of wood and booze in the nose as it warms. Body has thinned out, with very little carbonation but wow, what a nice aged beer. More booze and fruit in the mouth with a long lasting and coating finish. Fantastic. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 31, 2016

Wow! Pours dark brown and with very little head. Well, this boy is around 9 years old. Nose is really hitting you with booze and all those barrel aged dark fruits and molasses. Taste is aggressively boozy, full of flavours, dark fruits soaked in some liquor. Flavours have still been preserved after the ageing and come out clear and shining. Body has become thinner but overall totally amazing. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015

Bottle sample @ BAJT. Pours viscous pitch black with a small mocha head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is malty and fruity with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, dark roast coffee, chocolate syrup, raisins, dates, leather, moist soil and alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, salty and malty. Mouthfeel is viscous, round, roasted astringent, slightly boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, syrupy coffee and chocolate, raisins, dates, brandy, ketjap manis, cardboard and alcohol. Time has taken its toll but still a fairly good heavy IS. Was most likely quite good many years ago.
