dmac (4734) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep dark reddish brown with a nice ample creamy off white head, had too much visible carbonation that was clinging to the side of the glass as if it were soda. Aroma is sweet with notes of raisin, dark fruit, and chocolate. Flavor is very nice with a mellow sweetness, slight maltyness and hints of chocolate. Mouthfeel is very creamy and super drinkable. Holy crap this is 9.5%, you would never know it. Will buy this one again.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle from Capones. Pours a deep amber/bronze with a large off-white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel malts, and molasses. The flavor is sweet, slight fruit presence, molasses, tofee, caramel, way smooth for 9.5% and a slight hoppy presence.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Dark body with some hints of translucence around the edges. Aromas are weak and centered around a sweet molasses kind of groove. Maybe a hint of dark fruit in there, too. Flavor is odd... hints of chocolate and dark fruit get swallowed up in a sweet malt frenzy from dark sugars, toffee and molasses. While this sounds OK enough, it comes off a little fake... almost like a chocolate flavored hard candy or something. It’s not bad, just something seems a little amiss. The sweetness is nice, but there isn’t much there to capture my interest.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle: Pours a murky brown with an off white head. Aroma, very malty, some roasted notes and an earthy touch to it. Flavor, molasses, roasted malts, caramel, a fain earthy bitterness. Not bad.

hopdog (9940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium mahogany color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, toasted nuts, earthy and toffee. Tastes of caramel, brown sugar sweetness, and some dark fruits. Definitely malty sweet. Alcohol well hidden.

adrian910ss (2427) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours a very dark yet clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee and butterscotch. Taste is toffee malty with hints of warm butterscotch and caramel. Not bad.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Pours a deep brown with ruby red/amber highlights and an medium foamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, buttery caramel, mixed nuts, and some grains. Flavor was a mix of the same, on the sweet and malty side with hints of vanilla and more of the caramel/molasses and some toffee. Alcohol well hidden behind all those sweet malts.
