4.11/5 rDev -7%
12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.
Black, opaque and no head. Has legs. Brandy, burnt sugar, figgy, lots of wood, spice, cocoa, and faint citrus peel in the nose. Fullish body, creamy, oaky, brandy, creamy sherry, peppery alcohol, very warming, boozy, burnt raisins, slightly viscous, woody slowly drying finish.
By far the best out of the bunch within the first six tracks. Not for its size obviously but for the execution of putting this brew together.

Track #6. 12.7oz bottle. No date.
Look: Ink black, opaque, no head, but plenty of legs
Smell: Brandy soaked chocolate cake, raisins, char, alcohol
Taste: Viscous, creamy, sweet, boozy, brandy, port, peppery, chocolate, black treacle, cookie dough, roasty, charred raisins, mild oxidation, lingering molasses sweetness
This is one hell of a deliciously evil nightcap. Robust, boozy, flavorful and moreish.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours an almost opaque crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty but pretty strong.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Mostly flat and very dark, but just shy of black. Leggy and viscous.
Smell - Lots of brandy and bourbon. Toffee and caramel. Dark roasted malts. Boozy.
Taste - Strong brandy and vanilla. Chocolate comes behind it. The finish is boozy with a nice blend of sweet dark chocolate.
Mouthfeel - Very boozy. The body drops off a bit. Low carbonation.
Overall - Barrel aged sugar bomb. Very tasty.

Thanks to Todd for getting me comically drunk in preparation for Outer Space Disco Dancing at Neo.
A - Thin white foam settles to a thin collar and nothing else. Near-black body. Ominous, and appropriate for the style and ABV.
S - Huge chocolate fudge, some whiskey, roasted malts, light oak, hint of tobacco, faint char, and even more chocolate fudge (so nice, I said it twice). Some alcohol, but not as boozy as I was expecting.
T - Caramel, fudge, vanilla, oak, roast, whiskey, sweet malts, hint of brandy. Again, perhaps a touch of alcohol, but nothing untoward considering the monstrous ABV.
M - Medium-full body, pleasant lower carbonation, dry and oaky finish. Some alcohol warmth, but closer to a 10% beer in my experience.
D - An excellent spin on Deliverance - might actually be a superior blend here. A 375ml bottle might be excessive, but I'd give it a try all the same. Hopefully this gets remade on occasion as well, as it seems like it should be pretty easy to do.
