Bottle split at CBC Islo Matteo ciao, thanks to the man of the moment, 20/02/17. tderoeck (10335) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2017
Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent beige head.
Nose is spice, fruit cake, toffee, light bourbon trace, wooded.
Taste comprises toffee, Xmas cake, dried fruits, modest bourbon load, sweet notes, vinous.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with a boozy kick.
Expected more from this ... a touch harsh and lacking in depth and balance.

Clear purple brown beer, creamy dark beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: very oxidized, dried fruits, spicy, orange peel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bit osurish, very oxidized, maple syrup, molasses, caramel, sugary touch, lots of alcohol. Aftertaste: very oxidized, some cardboard, honey, dusty, spicy finish.
Aromat słodki, dominują suszone owoce (daktyle, figi) w tle coś a la czerwona porzeczka. W smaku pełne, początkowo słodkie, suszone owoce, cukier kandyzowany, w tle nuty przyprawowe. Finisz wytrawny, rozgrzewający z niuansami drewna. gr_pa (857) - siemianowice, POLAND - JUN 18, 2017

Thank you kraddel & tderoeck! Sampled draft @ VCBF 2017. Dark brown amber, little dark tanned head. Nose is overly harshly alcoholic, harsh varnish, very heavy alcohol with some spoiled cherry. Taste is overly harshly alcohol, clear varnish alcohol, some bourbon, sugar, hazelnut, honey, sugar,... Near flat alcoholic sugar. Alcohol dominates far too heavily here, really takes the beer down. martjoobolut (5218) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2017
