Served from 22oz bottle

A — Pours a deep ruby amber hue, there is a puffy cream colored head on it, spotty lacing left behind.

S — Smells of rich and sugary dark fruits, plums, figs, dates, raisins, sugary sweet malts.

T — Exceedingly sweet and rich, lots of dark fruits and candy sugar. Bitter sweet coffee, but just a lot of sweet dark fruits.

M — Full bodied, long finish, lingering.

O — OK overall, may be a bit past its prime in 2015, but just came across as super sweet to me.

I bought this beer in Las Vegas back in 2010...have sat on it till today. Been hitting my cellar since I drain poured by 2010 Dark Lord last year and decided not to keep beers so long.

This pours very murky and very dark ruby I poured it fairly aggressively so I had a good head and some decent lacing. Smells and taste of raisins and prunes...very sweet. To me the aftertaste is all raisin every sip. Since I only got one bottle of this nothing to compare it to...

22 oz. wax-sealed bomber split between a pair of snifters. Purchased in 2011 on a West Coast trip and held at cellar temperature ever since. "Best after" January 29, 2011 and poured on January 21, 2015.

Dark hazy mahogony with a small and short-lived creamy beige head.

Aroma is heavy barleywine-like brown sugar malts. Dark fruit esters (raisins, plums) and wood. Light hint of spice.

The aroma is mostly dominated by thick, sweet malts, but the flavor is a little more complex. There's still a healthy amount of brown sugar, but the barrel flavors come out a little better with cherry, oak, and vanilla. A bit estery and some moderate alcohol flavors. Almost dessert wine-like with a touch of oxidized sherry. Warm and sweet, but neither cloying nor too hot.

Full body and low carbonation. Thick and chewy mouthfeel.

Perhaps a little past its prime. Resembles an English barleywine that's been aged in wine barrels. The complexity is sadly lacking.
