EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Grey wax-dipped bottle. Brown sugar nose, a little nutty, heavy quad-like dark fruit with figgy/plummy tones, a little berry, and a little tobacco. Some sweet phenols. Ruby-caramel pour with a good tan head. Tangy, sticky malt presence, lots of sludgy (vominty) caramel, earthy tobacco, and a little too much booze showing. Sticky lips and full body, sweet and dry, touch of spice with candi sugar, and some cloves and figs and cherry. Some nice flavors here but it’s rather rough around the edges.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle shared by JCB. Hazy note on this one. Sweet and malty with some dark fruits and must. Pretty decent.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle from StFun - thanks as always, Josh!!! Yeah, this one was pretty nice. Dank and fairly still pour, russet color somehow very monastic. Sharp and slightly yeasty nose gives way to abundant sweet malts. Rich flavors, with lots of currant and fig, but nothing that’s cloying, thankfully. Slightly aggressive right now, with some heat in the finish, but definitely enjoyable.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Carolina Crew gathering! Thanks to JCB via the Indy crew for this one! I really enjoyed this! Clear garnet pour with a tan head and minimal lace. Aroma of candi sugar and dark fruits. Full bodied. Sweet caramel, molasses, candi sugar, and dark fruits (mostly fig) A tad hot on the finish, but nothing overwhelming.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle shared by CrellMOset. Thanks! Pours a deep red color wioth a medium head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, candi sugar, pear and other fruit notes. Taste is assertive hops, huge malts, including brown sugar and toffee, as well as raisin and other dark fruits. Very sticky texture. Medium bodied.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Draft sample at IBG Winterfest 2009. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted nutty malt and yeast aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew and my expectations where met.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Golden-brown colour. The aroma is heavy on the molasses and alcohol. Sweet, figgy taste with hints of piloncillo and tobacco. Chocolate and overripe pear in the finish. Not bad.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
bottle, kp party. Lovely brandy color, clear with a red tint. Hot aroma is like the brandy color suggests it will be, aromatic and whiskey-like. Soft, low carbonation. Nice, sweet but solid malty body. Good.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle received from StFun. Dark brown/amber pour with a little carbonation. Aroma was very nice, noticeable plum and candi sugar that reminded me of my own homebrew! Flavor was sweet, thick and malty and finished a little bitter. Nice belgian style, although I wish the flavor had lived up the the killer aroma.

(12oz. bottle) Pours a hazy amber-brown body with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of mustiness, raisins, banana, clove, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of raisins, pepper, yeast, candi sugar, and plum.
