Thanks to nerd for breaking out all 3 BA Papier's!

Pours a muddled brown color, pretty much flat, some bubbles here and there. Nose is smooth whiskey and lots of sweetness in the form of burnt sugars, caramel, molasses. Flavor is a perfect mix of booze & sweetness. As with the nose, the flavor is all smooth whiskey and burnt sugars, caramel, oak, and vanilla. Medium body, light carbonation, sweet finish.

This basically drinks like a mix between a port & straight booze, similar to Utopias. This is my favorite variant of the three, and I'd love to have this one again. Something to really sip on over a long period of time and enjoy. Excellent stuff!

Deep mahogany tones at first gave the impression of an Abyss, with nothing coming up from it, but a few seconds passed and a beautiful looking tannish colored head rose up from it. At least two fingers high,

rich deep caramel smell coming off of this, literally took me by surprise. Nice aroma of oak and alcohol mixing and swirling around with it now, really starting to pick up steam the warmer it got. rich earthy tones running rampant through it. The flavors, if at all possible turned out to be better then this. It was insane what I was sipping on here by this point. Almost at a loss for words, this was the old ale I had always searched for. I was thrilled to be having this. Deep malt bomb of the highest degree now taking shape all around me, utterly fantastic in every way. Warm oak infused notes of brandy like alcohol running over the tongue, so sweet and sugary. Long drawn out finish it was, really letting you savor every last bit of the enormous and utterly amazing flavor that this one provided. I am floored.Deep dark fruit now coming through for me, really started to actually dominate the scene all together. here comes that little bit of bitterness to wrap it all up. Wow, this was amazing.
