blklab2007 (1940) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle poured a ruby amber color with a thin cap of tan head. Aroma has sweet malt, a bit of fruit, and an odd smoke thing. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor starts with the malts, fair bit of roasted smoke, dark fruit, and sweetness hanging on the finish.

Leighton (10510) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottles shared in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours rich amber with a thick, staying beige foam head. The nose has lots of caramel, overly ripe berries, sugary toffee. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots of rich fruits, bready malts, toffee, low bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary, bready finish, more toffee, lots of ripe berries. Quite nice. Well balanced.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with small yellow-beige head. The nose is earthy, toasty, toffee, candied peel, candy, icing sugar and dirt. The taste is earthy, toast, brown bread, dirt, brown sugar, toffee, butterscotch, wood and faint spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty alright.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4829) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
From the March 2014 Pittsburgh Ratebeer gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a red-brown color with a huge foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish and malty with a bit of sour caramel. The flavor was tangy, sour and malty with a touch of toffee and faint vegetal malts. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.
