The bottle looks not so good, the beer in the glass not better. Dark brown, cream head. Starts malty and dry, a bit rusty, notes of caramel. Finish is a bit drier. All in all very drinkable and not bad!

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2009
500 mL bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a clear, dark cranberry red color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is light roasted malts and dark fruits, primarily raisin, toffee and soy. Taste is very bready with bristly hops, toasted malts and toffee. Very dry with only the faintest fruit notes. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Draft at the Bad Durkheim Wine Festival. Pours a medium brown. Aromas of wheat bread, caramel, and a touch of something metallic. Flavor is malty/metallic without a lot of character.

This one had the ability to transcend my utter disappoint for everything else from this brewing group, but it didn’t because it is so goddman sweet. There are a lot of great flavors here, caramel and toffee, dark fruits, but it would be great if it finished off dry and bitter, but it stays sweet throughout, not quite to the point of being cloying, but an unaturally amount to the point where it was unenjoyable to drink.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 14, 2008
50cl bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquor. Pours a cranberry brown, with a thin, sandy off-white head. Even with a hard pour, can’t get more than 1/2 an inch. Still, what little head there is laces incredibly. Strong, sweet smell = caramel, cherries, leather. Taste is also sweet, but much better than the aroma. Anise, honey, figs, raisins, all in a creamy mouthful. Drying ending is roasted coffee bitters, makes the inside of your cheek sweat. Alcohol feels but doesn’t taste. Tongue a little numbed from the anise and alcohol. Needless to divulge, I enjoyed this rarity very much.

Draft at Zum Schneider. Poured dark, and tasted great, maybe not quite enogh sweeteness but still I thought it was pretty good.
