Ticked for my 3K WOB Bier. Lightl oxidation on the nose. Mostly Sherry. Light paper. Taste is light chocolate with some dark dried fruits. Modest carbonation. Crisp finish. After you get past the oxidation it’s pretty nice. Light alcohol warming in the chest but never hot. rdixon77 (3125) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Solid stuff. Black ruby colored. Big aroma full of toffee and dark fruit. Taste follows with a kick of booze. Heavy but good. FlandersNed (396) - , Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2015

Bomber. Pours dark brown with red highlights. Nice frothy tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and roasted nuts. Dark fruits, carmalized sugars, alcohol esters, and a faint roasted taste hits the palate. Very nice and balanced. Really enjoying this on this cold snow day. ChainGangGuy (4949) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2014

Released in 2014.
Appearance: Pours a deep, dark mahogany-hued body with a smallish, foamy beige head that comes just shy of an inch and steadily fades to a wisp.
Smell: A sultry blend of high-grade sugars and fruity complexities over a firm, dark toastiness, with a dusting of finely ground spice and the ever-present alcohol.
Taste: Well toasted bread crust with a little smidgen nearing a roasty tone, but not quite. Heavy drizzle of dark syrup flecked with caramelized rock candy and housing robust fruity notes of gooey, chewy dates, plump raisins, sweet cherries and a singular drop of peach schnapps. Amidst all the complex sugars is a big pinch of spiciness, a bit earthy, a bit bitter. Encroaching, accumulating alcohol warmth additional helps to cut the sweetness (not that it was ever overly sweet). Closes out bittersweet with that alcohol trailing into the aftertaste and providing some much needed warmth on this lonely December night.
Mouthfeel: Near-full body. Medium carbonation. A little stickiness showing.
Overall: Intensely fruity while maintaining a fine balance between the rich sweetness and alcohol of the style.
11/5/14. 750mL bottle from Five Points. Another Georgia rating! Woo! Deep dark ruby brown pour under a one-finger, thick khaki head that fades to a ring with minimal lacing. Rich aroma, dark fruits, bitter, rich roasted toffee, reminds me of port in a way because of all the rich caramel aspects. Sweet, rich flavor hits first, malty, caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, lingering toasted toffee. Light carbonation pokes through the thick, syrupy body. This definitely leans towards the dark, rich, thick quads as opposed to the lighter, bubbly grapey quads. Not bad. Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Draft at the source. Cloudy brown color, tan head. Nice aroma of figgy pudding. Taste has raisins, toffee, brown bread. Delicious.
