ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Deep brown, near-black body with a light beige head. Aroma is licorice, nuts, oats, grains, nougat, honey, toffee and hints of cinnamon, pumpkin and mild clove. Taste is licorice, nuts, nougat, biscuits, grains, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and hints of clove, raisins, wood and red berries. Full body, medium carbonation. Sweet, yet a bit sour somehow and with loads of complexity and a fair deal of oxidizing caused by cellaring (3 years), Pleasant and smooth, and interesting. Nice one.

OldMrCrow (2437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle for Thanksgiving 2014.

Dark pour, decent head. Hugely spicy nose. Flavor is...sweet, sticky, and so.much.spice. This is absolutely undrinkable. Dafuq! On the heels of a Cuvee van de Kaiser Blauw ’08, this is a travesty. Total drain pour. My dad is drinking it anyway; I feel terrible as a host. Now what do I do with my five golden rings and six geese a laying?
