2-3 oz caramel brown pour into a mini snifter. 2011 vintage. I don’t have a good nose but omg this smells like candy. first sip is heaven- caramel, toffee, light oak, vanilla, raisins and cherries. This smells and tastes just delicious.
Was expecting a huge in your face alcohol burn b/c of the abv but it’s not the case here. The sweetness dominates and perhaps the only knock about this is some might think it’s too sweet. Definetly a sipper but i could’ve nursed a much bigger serving all night. Incredible and glad i finally bit the bullet and tried this.

Botella cerámica 75 cl cortesía locura Fombe!!! tomada en Cimmeria 20..07..2017.
Color cobrizo caoba oscuro sin nada de espuma. Aromas intensos penetrantes alcoholicos que recuerdan más bien a un cognac brandy o Jerez. Sabores también intensos con notas potentes dulces y maderas envejecidas en vinos anejos. Dulces tostados que recuerdan a rones y ligeros quemados de bourbon. Notas de especias, vainilla y algo de cacao amargo. Cuerpo intenso con gran sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Increíble cerveza que se asemeja más a un licor entre cognac y bourbon. Impresionante, para repetir sin duda alguna........

Bottle at home in Hackney - shared during the 20k tasting. Pours clear amber-brown with almost no head. Awesome aroma, pretty huge, with definite alcohol, buckets of dates and figs, some brown sugar, toasted malts. Big sweet flavour with a certain kick of alcohol burn, modest oxidation, some raisins, leather, soft earthy bitterness, dried cranberries, more bread, toffee, liquefied dates. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with soft carbonation. Hot finish, with lots of golden raisins, more toffee, fruitcake, vanilla, raw alcohol, some woody dryness. Overall, this is a crazy beer. And, it is really fun to drink in small amounts. There’s not much like it.

Bottle at Leighton’s gaff. Massive thanks to MR 201k himself. It pours oily, dark red - amber with no head. The aroma is rich, oily, varnish, raw alcohol, light oxidised vibe, toffee, vanilla, plum and fruit compote. The taste is rich, slick, oily, plenty of tangy fruit, jammy, marzipan, bakewell tart, warming alcohol, fruit compote, wood, toffee and port wine with a boozy and warming finish. Full body, limited carbonation and slick mouth - feel. I was surprised just how good this was. Great stuff. punkska101 (2039) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle shared with dad bought at Lcbo A: alcohol, figs, port, strong molasses, raisins, some chocolate. App: hazy dark brown no head. T/p: full body with sweet finish of average duration. Alcohol is dominant, like a fine spirit. O: we’ve been searching for this for a long time. I’m really glad to try that one with that guy that brought me into the exciting world of microbrewery. It’s different, strong complex. In all honestly I didn’t enjoyed it that much but I can only salute the brewery audacity. In final, one more check on the bucketlist. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 2, 2017
