Excellent taste and unobtrusive nose. You get full on this one and the strength of the brew leaves you feeling nice and mellow. Just takes one good goblet! I loved this beer and would go back for a second tasting or two but I suspect this won't be on tap long. A beautiful, drinkable strong!

A - Nice, equal foam, light, goes away fast
Dark amber, brown, dark wood-like color
Cloudy, yeast visible, light carbonation
Looks like some barley wine/trappist beers, inviting

S - First some figs, plums, raisins, then the alcohol note hits the nerves, feels like you smell these dried fruit soaked in rum - sweet and potent. There is a hint of something slightly acid - wine like, and some apple almost fusel notes.

T - Impressive and rich. It starts with in rum soaked raisins, plums, prunes, reminds me of plum wine or maybe Porto, definitely some brandy/oak notes in there. A lot of sweet, malty, caramel taste. There is a hint of banana and slight sour/wine notes. It gets a little spicy, probably do to high alcohol content which kicks out slightly towards the end but sums up all the flavours very very good. Gets yeasty towards the end.

M - Medium, heavy at the end body; low carbonation, palate fullness; there is warming from the high alcohol content - it is felt after you swallow.

O - Incredibly rich, complex yet finely tuned beer. 12% alcohol content is well incorporated into the flavour and it's presence enhances the experience and all the complexity of this incredible beer. Very impressive.

Hazy amber/brown, with beige notes. Big head, goes away fast, big retention.
Smells of perfect banana and clove, flowers, wheat, yeasty bread dough.
Really complex fruitiness, with really sweet cherries (with a hint of sourness also), red berries, pulms, figs, all of this dark fruit having a very jam-like sweetness. Sweet banana chips also, light acidic red apple, red grapes. Big vineous character, like a sweet red wine. Honey notes, and spices are big vanilla, big clove and some nice prickly pepper. Sweet wheaty malts, caramel, reminding of sweet cake, going to gingerbread. Even if itțs really sweet, it's not unpleasant, complementing the warm alcohol (surprisingly not boozy, considering it's 12%). Herbal notes felt towards the hoppy finish, with a decent bitterness.
Somewhat creamy, low carbonation, perfect as a sipper.
A real delicacy, not one to pass up. Can't wait to get my hands on an old vintage. Top-tier brew.

Poured into oversized wine glass.

A: Poured ruby-red with a white head that quickly dissipated.

S: Smell is definitely dominated by bananas and alcohol - may be better out of a pint glass.

T: Fruity, dates, plums, bananas comes through strongly, accompanied by sweet caramel malts and a sweet toffee and slightly alcoholic finish. For 12%, the alcohol is impressively hidden.

M: Medium body and carbonation, light coating on mouth. Very pleasant.

O: Delicious brew - flavor profile is very similar to their Tap 6, but everything is kicked up a notch. Alcohol is hidden well and this is actually a very easy drinking beer.

From Leura. Bottled 2013.

A - cola black with reddish hues. One finger head fizzes and dies unpleasantly. No lace at all.

S - brown sugar, alcoholic.

T - more brown sugar as a sweet bomb. Stewed caramels and toffees, figs, prunes, hint banana, all too sweet and little balance.

M - medium weight, lightly but spritizily carbonated. Alcohol burn.

O - my first of style and I am unsure. All too sweet and alcoholic reminds me more of hooch than beer. Better as it warms as the sweetness aligns closer to barley wine style.
