daknole (10255) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Number 1500! Bottle from Lampeno420 straight from my wants list. Very very dark brown pour wtih a small wispy tan head. Aroma is very sweet smelling, with raisins, honey, maple syrup, and brown sugar. Flavor profile is all over the damn map. Starts out sweet as hell with notes of honey and brown sugar, then some spice notes hit followed by a bitter finish and then it leaves a fruity sweet aftertaste on the tongue. This is a wildly entertaining beer to drink. Cheers!

hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2004
Very murky, dark, copper-colored ale with no head. Smells like molasses, caramel and dried plum... malty as hell. I dig that. Fairly well-bittered for balance with notes of caramel and butterscotch. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and light carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. I really enjoyed this one!

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 12oz bottle acquired in trade with SuIIy (thanks!). Poured a deep and murky brown with almost no head at all. Lots of floaters. Aromas of spices (duh), soy sauce, toasted malts, caramel, and brown sugar. I swear I’m also getting bourbon and wood - almost to the point that if you gave this to me, I’d guess it was a bourbon, barreled aged beer. Tastes of alcohol, lots of spices (ginger, coriander, and lots more), wood, caramel, brown sugar, and some dark fruitiness. Flat body (with the pour and flat body, I wonder if this is the way it is supposed to be). Very different and Eccentric sums it up very well. Definitely stands out against the recent spiced/herb/vegetable beers I’ve been going through. 8 3 7 2 15 </br>Re-tasted 2004 vintage on 5/20/08. Increased numbers.
