Bottle, thanks Ken. Pours black, with no head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, wine, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, and coffee. Flavor is fruit, smoke, roasted malt, vanilla, wine, bourbon, and alcohol. No carbonation, and some would certainly have improved this.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2010
[275ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Flat black and highly viscous, looks like a glass of cold coffee. Smells like a glass of rioja tannins, rich woody notes from the oak chips. All kinds of deep flavours - sherry, oak, vanilla, dates. You could stand a spoon up in it [14112010]

Alphadelic (2198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2010
2006: Aromas of salty marmite and damp cabinet much like an old Christmas cake. So thick, wood and smoke, super mellow; resinous, fruity, light and deep. immense really. The only downside is the stickiness. An amazing beer, well worth a drive up the country.

IrishBoy (4141) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 16, 2010
275 ml 2007 BB 14.11.2012 from cgarvieuk! Nose is heavenly; licorice, chocolate, and light oak. Black with rusty brown edges and a total lack of carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, licorice, a hint af fruity cherries, and a woody oak balance. Nice syrupy body and a a tiny bit of alcohol in the finish. Great stuff! Craig do you have more you can send my way when my friends come back again?

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Bottle, shared by someone awesome @ BBF, thanks! Aroma is peaty bourbon, liquorice, woody earth, hint of medicinal. Flavour very strong and wide, with loads of smooth bourbon. Leather, peat, chocolate, liquorice, roasted malt, its all there and in massive quantities. Palate is a bit thinner than expected, but that makes it a lot more drinkable.

Bottle kindly shared by some people at the 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Wow, what a brew, aroma full of bourbon and some wine. Flavor is extremely smooth and round, very well balanced and huge. Amazing brew.
