described as an old ale/winter warmer, it looked the part...then things went south. multiple simultaneous drainpours. maybe infected, who knows. it was waxed in a 750, nice presentation. shitty beer. tart aroma and flavor on top of a malty base that just didn’t fit. a few sips in i’d had enough. Too bad...the only other Alameda brew i’ve had was an awesome impy stout."

Tap at alameda brewpub Portland, OR. Nitroed. Very subtle aroma, but I detect notes of caramel and chocolate malt. Pours dark copper colored with a creamy, off-white head and good lacing. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with notes of caramel and some chocolate. Finishes smooth and clean. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Deep murky brown. Aroma is grape, roasted malt, and a hint of sweet smokiness. Taste is sour grape, roasted malt, and campfire smoke. A little bitter on the finish, with a touch of sweet remaining at the end.

Bottle - pours pitch black with small head around rim of glass. Nose of smoke, coffee, and malt. Taste is smoky malt, coffee, and chocolate. Not bad though has a weak finish for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4818) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Deep brown coloured body with a two centimetre tall off-white head - like beige. Aroma of malt, toasted grain, basement, caramel and a light herbal note. Medium-bodied; Strong malt notes throughout with an emphasis on caramel and toffee, some lighter mushroomy and meaty flavours and some subdued grain and yeast tastes. Aftertaste shows a nice caramel and toffee flavour with a lot of grain and some lighter yeast and alcohol. Overall, a very nice beer with a lot of malt and some good toffee and sugars at the back end. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased a few minutes ago at Made in Oregon in Portland, Oregon (PDX Terminal D) on 06-December-2013 sampled a few minutes later in my hotel room here in Portland on 06-December-2013.

Bomber from Albertsons. Pours a clear brown color with a small beige head. A sweet malty nose, toffee and toasted malts. The flavor is super nutty, dry toasted malts, more toffee a bit of fruit. Pretty tasty and simple. A bit of chocolate.

A nice winter beer tat could use a little more thickness or viscosity. Overall seems to come off a little watery. Aroma and taste are right, dried fruit, spice, molasses and dark malt, but the body is very light. No hint of the high ABV either, but warming nonetheless.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours deep copper with small beige head. Nose of caramel, light chocolate. Flavour is caramel, a bit of chocolate, quite sweet, dusty, no fruity esters I could pick up, no alcohol though. Very simple old ale.

reebtogi (4311) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a small beige head that dissipates quickly leaving some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with an earthy hop bitterness. Medium body with light carbonation. A decent brew, but a little bit of a sourness came through as well, thinking this may have been going bad.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Amber brown with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of bread dough, leaves, light maple and malt. Taste is of malt, caramel, light spicy hop notes, and bread.
