02/02/26 date...whatever that means. 2015 bottle though.

A: Pours black with a small brown head. Head dissipates very quickly, leaving no lacing behind.

S: Yow. Super fruity and super sugary. Pure sugar and caramel with a backing of dark fruits - raisins mainly. Definitely got some oak in there to break it up.

T: Much like the aroma, super sweet and super fruity. Dark fruits drenched in pure caramel and candi sugar. Ultra sweet. Dark bread maltiness pokes through in there, kinda reminds me of like a rum-soaked bread. Just crazy rich and sweet and heavy. Some chocolate on the back end that lingers between sips. No real alcohol sting per say, but huge belly warming sensation immediately. You can feel it on your own breath.

M: Very heavy, syrupy and sweet - basically to the point of cloying. The oak and the huge alcohol content help cut it though. Only so much you can do.

O: One hell of a BSDA. Huge, thick, ultra sweet, mega heavy alcohol bomb. Hugely sweet, a sipper for sure especially with the alcohol content. Greatly enjoyable though.

From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Rayman Origins. Tasty oak notes that hides all the original flavor. Goes up to the head pretty quickly. Too much for a single person.

Dark and sexy in the glass with a full two finger dark tan head. Nose has notes of dark fruits, alcohol and candied coffee. With first sip you get initially strong and dark rich fruits. Very rich and almost port like. Lovely

Dried fruit, a touch of tartness and brown malts on the nose. Pours a lively mahogany with a tan tinted white head – persistent and lacy. On the palate light caramel malt flavors with raisins and prunes. Medium full body and medium high carbonation.
