2005 Vintage
Got a chance to revisit this at The Brick Store – thanks to Simon for the sample. Rumor has it that this vintage topped out at around 24%!
Great legs in the glass, silky smooth and chocked FULL of flavor. About one-third of a 12oz bottle is enough for me. Remains very wine/port like with immense presence.

2004 Vintage
As part of a trade a few months ago, apologies I forget who was kind enough to get this to me. Still oodles of character and an amazingly drinkable beer considering the massive amount of alcohol and the style.

Ink black pour, an initial decent head that of course fades to reveal a very small amount of lacing, but still some thin, spotty film remains. Darkly mysterious!
Aroma is wine like, with alcohol prevelant and a lot of sweetness. Some chocolate notes too.
The aroma is reflected in the tastes. Massive alcohol, prunes, other dark fruits and sugary sweetness. This is truly a big beer.
Mouthfeel is smooth but gives a lovely warming sensation in the finish.
Amazingly drinkable considering the style and the alcohol.
DFH is a truly an EXCEPTIONAL brewer. Their beers are innovative, beautifully crafted and at the cutting edge. At the same time they manage amazing drinkability and a delightful charm. These are simply products of the first order.
