3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from Shahin Thanks ! Pours a rich copper color perfectly still. The nose is big complex sweet toffee, deep ripe plum, caramel a and a bit of boozy vinous notes. The palate is smooth and mouth-coating like a fine sherry. Lots of complexities in the palate with flavors unfolding as the palate adjusts to the boozy heat and layered notes of belgian spices, caramel, date. doughy sourness... touches of rye.
Sample @ SB&WF 2016. Dark amber body with a low head. Sugar, caramel, brandy, dried figs, apple pie. Not all that boozy that you could expect from the high abv. PotjeBier (3460) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2016
Small sample from bottle @ BBF ’16, shared by two Americans with a crazy set of bottles in front of them, this probably from Kraddel? Dark copper to brown color. Light beige head. Aroma’s of sweetness, sweet fruit, caramel, toffee, with sharp alcohol retronasal. Flavor is very sweet. Heavy, syruppy body. strong alcohol feel. Long finish, no new flavors. Very strong and sweet, but rather nice actually. ShivanDragon (4219) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2016

Bottle at Borefts, thanks for sharing kraddel! Malts, vanilla, caramel, pretty nice! jackl (8217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled during RBWG Tampa 2015. Amber pour with a practically non-existent head. Very strong, boozy sweet nose. Hot caramel and apple. Aggressive, nose-tingling stuff. The flavor’s hugely sweet. Apple and pie crust. Toffee. Hot, but not overbearing. Oily, rich body. A real sipper. Decent in small samples.

Bottle split at Angry Chair during RBWG ’15, 20/02/15, big thanks to one of the guys there... Twas a fart dungeon of a raking emporia !
Rich amber with beige spotting.
Nose is bitter dark fruit rinds, slightly harsh and boozey, dates, candied fruit peel.
Taste comprises rich fruits, syrup, sweet licks, figgy pudding, dates, booze.
Full full body, cloying feel, warming alochol in the close.
Ok considering the ABV, a warming sipper. drowland (8829) - Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2015

Somehow AdamJackson got a 750 ml bottle, with only a dozen bottles sold to the public... Ok. Dark caramel color with lots of suspended yeast particles in the liquid. Aroma is booze upfront with dates, figs and caramel. Lots of booze.
Sweet, syrupy, booze bomb, molasses and a shit ton of dark fruits. Hot warming sensation after the sip. Thick full body with a dense texture over the tongue. Well this is more like a Liquor. A small shot for me after 4 oz. it is entirely to sweet and syrupy.
