Bottle from summer ’08 pours clear dark brown with deep ruby undertone, very little head, no lacing, and little retention. Aroma is raisin, plum, molasses, minerality, chocolate, herbs, deep caramel. Taste is raisin, caramel, toffee, spicy hops, warming booze. Body is medium, low carb, big frothy mouthfeel, oily consistency, spicy lush finish of alcohol and dried fruits. Overall, a very interesting flavor experience. Kinda like a dark barleywine but underlying flavor profile definetly reminds me of Robert the Bruce.

(22oz bottle via trade). Pours a hazy cola color with a tan head. Aroma has chocolate, wood, florals, and spice. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness. Full bodied with a slick texture. Smooth finish. Really nice beer! storminorman (78) - Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Nice dark color. It pours smoothly. You can taste the flavor and it holds.
Thanks for bringing this one Dave. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bomber acquired via trade and shared with a couple bros on the Brewvana bus. Deep, dark brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is big on plums, raisins, brown sugar and a touch of booze. Alcohol is almost non-existent in the mouth, with a lot of datk fruit caramel and vanilla gliding smoothly across the tastebuds. I wasnt sure what to expect from this one but wound up being a big fan. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to Exiled) clear rich garnet color with just a few bubbles. Nose and taste are a bit sour, vanilla, caramel, raisins and chocolaty. Nice linger on the palate as well. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2011
Shared while waiting in line at DLD ’11, thanks for the pour. It had a nice fruity aroma, pours rather dark and a nice texture to it that comes off really nice, the beer pours dark. Definitely would have liked to have some more of this one
