Bottle at RBSG 2014. Thx to everyone for sharing todays bottles! APPEARANCE: clear dark blond beer, no foam. NOSE: very sweet, caramel, alcohol. TASTE: very sweet, alcohol, caramel. Too much sugar for me, also too much alcohol...

NikkTwist (2899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Having this 2010 bottle at Eulogy in June 2014. Very rich dark caramel malts with deep red and brown fruit. Poured a deep translucent ruby with some light beige foam. Complex berry notes. Charred steak. Figs. Pomegranate. Duck sauce. Passionfruit. Cherry cordials. Rich sweet and sour. No funk. No bad notes. Syrupy succulent body. Lip-smacking finish. High ABV numbs the tongue but does not feel overpowering. Has aged very well in the bottle - a lot of the original burnt notes have smoothed and sweetened.

TXBadger (2658) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Had this as Cuir 100% Bourbon Barrel Aged: pours a deep amber color with off-white head. Tartness, funk, oak, bourbon, and some dark fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very nice. Finishes tart and dry.

Dfonorow (2153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle share at DLD 2014. Pour is clear red/orange with a very small tan head. Aroma and flavor are borderline cloying - toffee, wood chips, vanilla, dark fruit, citrus, rock candy. Low carbonation, alcohol is well hidden mostly due to the high amount of sugar.

BelgianBeerGal (3932) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Traded bottle as Papier with a thick dose of black wax to keep that cap on. Pours a murky brown color with no real head just some bubbles. Big aroma of molasses, dark malt and a hint of steak sauce I think. Bold flavor with a bit of spice and a syrupy mouthfeel. This is definitely a sipper but for 14.5% the booze is actually well hidden. Strange lingering finish. Good but not really my thing.

alobar (3632) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber brown color with aroma of fig, raisin, cherry, and wood. Thick complex flavor with lots of dark fruit- fig, raisin, and cherry-, wood, and bourbon round out the flavor. 2009 bottle. Very nice and very big beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2014
2009 1st anniversary bottle, labeled "Papier". Black wax. Thanks to beace for this one. Shared with Jay. Hazy dark red brown color. Beautiful color, but no head or lace. The beer is pretty flat, but it doesnt hurt it at all really, its pretty nice and has a good creamy texture. The beer is 5 years old, to be fair. Awesome nice dark fruit, vanilla aromas. Moderate sweet taste, lightly dry finish. Just a light hint of tart / tannic notes. Hides alcohol amazingly well. Very enjoyable stuff. Great one to share between two people.
