Nickls (1887) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap Gingerman 09= tap at Gingerman August 09) Thinner eggshell head that didn’t last too long, but not terrible retention; clear coppery brown color. Musty wetness on top of sweetish malts; bit of booze in the aroma. Medicinal and a bit herbal; kind of a mess here; wet woodiness; and a bit like cough syrup. Thicker and a bit sticky; bit cloying; soft carbonation. Not really good drinking; could barely finish my sample; just too may off flavors, or at least flavors that I did not enjoy. Overall, don’t know what they were going for in this one, but the mineral-like flavors on top of the booze and other stuff just missed.

malrubius (1860) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2009
On tap @ Rattle n Hum. Reddish amber with lasting head and lace. Sherry brown sugar alcohol aroma. Very fruity brown sugar port alcohol flavors. Sticky alcohol mouthfeel. Very strong tasting in the alcohol dept and somewhat astingent bitterness. Not as bad as, say, Brooklyn Monster, but still a challenge to drink.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
On tap the 2008 Strong Ale Festival. Amber color. Very oaky aroma. Some tartness. No oxidation. OK.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
English snow taffey and apricot in the nose. Bright auburn with no head. Flavor had resinous hops, tart unripe peaches and boose. A bit heavy and not impressive.

Odeed (1787) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 19, 2006
this is a perfect looking beer as far as im concerned.murky red body with a lovely looking head.as the head sat it left a thick wall of lacing.a little light on the aroma but the flavor was a mix of chocolate,malts,and cherries.very nice stuff indeed.

Alphadelic (1766) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Hazy red/brown and creamy. Caramel/toffee hints of fruit (deep and darkish) Quite toasty and savoury though. Very big booziness with kicks of liquorice very rich treacly flavours. Amazing burnt sugar finish. Still. A great snifter.

skoisirius (1763) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Tap at Jernigan’s a few weeks ago. Nice fruit malt nose, hint of booze. Straw and elements of bread with a boozy apple on the flavor. Little thin but good.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Alcohol, bleach and vinegar combine to form the potent aroma in this one. In addition it also smells like chocolate chips straight out tha bag. A burnt orange hue with little if any head. Tastes like a combination of chocolate chips, licorice, alcohol and raisons.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2009
On tap at brewpub. Pours out a dark red-brown color, more red than your typical bw with a thick off-white head. Sweet aroma of fruit and floral hops and caramel malt. Flavor very sweet and full of brown sugar, caramel, toffee and citrus, floral and pine notes. Not the typical beer for the style, but I very much enjoyed it all the same. Very refreshing.
