beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 6, 2007
Mahogany body with a smooth khaki head. Big hop nose, citrus and sweet caramel. Strong hop flavor, fresh and crisp with a good sweetness to counter it. Now that this beer is in 6 packs this will be a staple and the 7% ABV is a nice added bonus.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
650 bomber, split with VeloVampire - pours dark reddish brown/amber, with an extremely foamy, rocky, crater ridden head. Awesome. Floaty yeast chunks in the glass. The mountainous head retains it’s shape through almost the entire glass, leaving excellent lacing as well. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is a huge dose of piney/grapefruity west-coast hops against a light malt background. Really nice, but fairly typical US beer aroma. Flavour however is a surprise, and a knockout one. Very complex. Starts with piney hops, followed by notes of chocolate, some caramel, nutty malt, yeast/bread, followed by a lingering bitter finish. Amazing, and totally unique. Very smooth and full in the mouth. Incredibly well balanced. I loved this beer.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
650 ml bottle, shared with StompBrockmore - dark amber in the glass with suspended yeast chunks and a beautiful brownish rocky head that lasted for a long time, and was almost reminiscent of a Belgian ale. Aroma big fruity hops, and lots of malt. Flavours nutty, yeasty, chocolatey and of course HOPS.....and.....MALT! Full-bodied with a smooth malty finish. Really a combination of a few styles that works really, really well - Scotch ale, brown ale, and American IPA, all coming together to create a unique and utterly delicious brew that defies categorization. This one’s the real deal - get it!

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Clear copper with a large head. Good lacing. Head turns rocky as it slowly dissipates. Aroma - grapefruit, pine and caramel. Flavor brings out the caramel, fairly balanced. Medium body. Oily and slightly sticky texture. Astringent finish
