jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2010
Reviewed 1/30/2010 (Draft @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX): Pours a very dark yellowish red brown color body, opaque. Small whitish head, somewhat lasting. Hoppy malty sweet aroma, syrupy. Fruity like strawberries, seeded fruit. Sweet syrupy taste, some hoppiness, citrus. Some roastedness. Not my thing. Dark brown sugar like taste.

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of banana, caramel, dried fruits, and brown sugar. Some earthy, slightly odd notes from the EKG hops. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, astringent mouthfeel. It’s okay.

fiulijn (19369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Draught at Apex, Portland, as Bear Republic Heritage Wee Heavy, 8.1% ABV
Dark mahogany color. Heavy caramel aroma and flavor, robust body, fairly sweet, not much bitterness, some alcohol perception, and as often happens for these beers, lack of character.
