Bottle. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, nuts and some cocoa. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, nuts, fruits and earthiness. Bottle 12/2012. Good stuff. NikkTwist (3304) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass during their 18th Anniversary event. Deep murky copper brown pour that started with thick khaki foam. Complex vanilla toffee caramels. Treacle. Blackberry cordial. Pumpernickel. Sulfured figs. Pecan pie. Full body. Some punctuated acetic notes in the nose when cold. Flavors broaden quite nicely as it warms. Increasing notes of cigars, Turkish coffee, shoe polish and leather. Feels aged - but maybe tapped a couple years too early. luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2015

Capped 750 from Corti Bros. Pours dark copper with a yellow/tan head. Aroma has dark fruit, treacle, and something piquant. Full bodied. Lots of brown sugar/treacle, rather plummy dark fruit, and something like nuts or wood. Finishes far from dry, but the flavors are very nice. I’m really, really liking this. yespr (47034) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
