look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into tulip 2/11/12 from notes, thanks unibroue4ever for sending the bottle

A dark brown with a dark ruby glow when held to the light, tan head a thumbs width thick has a few minuets of retention and leaves some random lace

S lots of soft caramel and burnt sugars, some over-ripe fruit and faint peat smoke, raisins, sugar coated nuts, smells sticky

T a little more peaty smoke but its still faint, candied fruit and more strong caramel flavors, nutty and malty, it’s sweet but not over the top and I have no Idea where the 9% is hiding

M its thick, rich and sticky, zero booze impresses me in such a strong brew. Long finish and sticky lips, what I expect from the style

O the smell could use a 4.25 so a little higher here, very nice brew that fits the style better then many I’ve had from across the pond

Very nice blend of sweet malts and mellow smoke, great job hiding the booze, 11/4/11 bottle so its had some time to mellow and I thought it was drinking quite well

My computers in the shop so I didn't see ratings for this one beforehand, looks like I enjoyed it much more then the few others. I didn't get a bad bottle I can say that much

Fresh bottle (March 2012 dated) from grand Duc.I reported the following, with no answer yet received, to the brewery 4 days ago. Heavily oxidized. The smell, opened and offered to a group of us who know something about beer including an industry brewer, was deemed tuna or feet.The bottle said roasted hazlenuts. Unapproachable. Closing my nose, you would think I would get at some taste rather I got a muddle of water and cereal. Boozy . Brown bodied.

Bottle: Poured a dark burgundy color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramelized sugar with solid malt notes and light offer is quite enjoyable though a bit too much alcohol is also perceptible. Taste is a nice mix between some caramelized sugar with light toffee notes and balanced sweetness though again alcohol is too omnipresent. Body is above average with good carbonation and even though alcohol esters are evident they are not overshadowing the taste profile. Good but could be even better of less alcohol ester.

Bottled on March 12, 2012. Poured in to snifter.

A - Very dark amber, almost opaque. A thin layer of light brown head formed and quickly disappeared.

S - Lots of smoke with caramel and toffee aromas.

T - Smoke up front. Some caramel and toffee flavours and a light sweetness from the malt bill. Some warming alcohol throughout. Fairly average smoked beer but certainly not an infected bottle like the previous reviews.

M - Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Bottle shared by Sammy at Steve's birthday. Bottled March 5, 2012, bottle #1644. 750ml into a tulip.

Dark brown body, beige head with good retention and light lacing. Nuttynose, toasty and malty notes. A bit of oxidation (?) comes through in some carboardy flavours; odd as this bottle isn't even a couple month old. Thin and watery body, malty and toasty nut notes. Some moderate amounts of caramel, but a fair amount of something I can only relate to oxidation appears somewhat prevalent again. Medium body, somewhat dry and sweet. Was OK, but something was either going on with this bottle or batch that was a fair bit off.
