22oz. bomber: This one pours an inky, bark brown color. There was a bit of a brown head on it that leaves some lacing. Decent enough nose. Lots of malts to the nose. Chocolate, caramel, dark fruits are most prevalent. Also getting some citrus and pint hops. Also a bit of alcohol. The taste is pretty good. Some caramel and chocolate malt sweetness. Raisins, vanilla, molasses, hints of coffee. Lots going on here, but a pretty decent mix.

12oz. bottle from the 2011 Holiday Pack

(A)- Pours a very very dark brown color with some reddish highlights. Some tan froth too.

(S)- A deep malty and rich profile. Bits of booze and raisin.

(T)- Similar to the smell. a deep/rich malt profile overall with noticeable raisin.

(M)- A mellow carbonation level. A good balance even though it is quite hefty in the malt department; almost a bit too much actually.

(D)- Overall, it is solid, but easily the booziest of the lineup.

Bottle poured into a snifter glass

Been saving this one. The 15 is next.

Pours a dark black with hints of brown. Slight off-white/brownish head.

Smell is carmel and sweetness with strong dark fruit notes.

Taste is heavy on the dark fruit with little of the sweetness ifrom the malt. Finish reminds you a bit of the high alcohol content.

A very excellent beer in a category I am not always a fan of. Bought the 15 without ever having this off of a recommendation and am glad I finally cracked this one.

12 oz bottle from the reissue 2010 Box set

appears a dark mahogany color, 1/4" khaki color head. great head retention.

awesome aroma of tobacco, black cherry, spiced rum. taste is similar. bold flavors- a bit boozy, caramel, toffee, figs. nice thick smooth sticky body. drinks appropriate for the style, and great for the taste.

overall - the series continues and gets better it seems as the years go on

Bottle from wordemupg, 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Pretty much black in colour with a finger or so of light brown head. Huge lacing, and quite nice retention. Lots of chocolate in the nose and fruity, dark malts. Some molasses and licorice, and a touch of alcohol. Taste has more chocolate, dark breads and fruity dark malts that evoke some Fruit Loops grape flavour. Syrupy and some molasses. Dense body, some alcohol but doesn't suggest 14% by any stretch. Low carbonation and thick. A good beer, but I wasn't blow away.

A - Pours a dark brown with a hint of brown around the edges with a thin finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of dark caramel malts, dark fruits, coffee, caramelized sugars, with some grapefruit and pine hops and some booze.

T - Starts off with dark sweet caramel and caramelized malts, with raisin and other dark fruit, molasses, and some grapefruit and citrus hops. Through the middle, some coffee flavor comes through with some vanilla, pine hops, and a bit of bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet caramelized malts, dark toffee malts, dark fruit, molasses, a bit of coffee, and some booze.

M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit syrupy with a warming and sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. Good strong malty base with enough body and alcohol to balance.
