Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2009
bottle #281/1800.gold foil .. not sure what that means but it is from superdave70. Aroma of sweet molasas. Murky bron body with beige head. Flavor was abit odd with some caramel but a stong bitter bite on palate odd brew.

Also had a red foil topper from a bottle bought about 2 years ago or so. Had a smokey aroma with some chocolate notes. Odd colored body with beige head. Sweet caramel flavor with an alcohol grain bitter bite so that was all that was the same beteewn to two.

Superdave’s was better imo

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2009
bottle #281/1800... not sure what that means but it is from superdave70. hazy chestnut-y brown with a thin tan ring of a head. there is something very comfortable about the aroma?!... brown sugar candied nuts, chocolate, grain, spice, bruised apples, vanilla and medjoul dates. it tastes a whole lot like a chocolate covered werther’s original butterscotch candy!... alcohol is noticed but it is slight and very welcomed as it clears the palate of flavors of malt powder, grain, brown sugar, dates, vanilla and flowers. a very mild bitterness comes in late on the finish. medium to full bodied but strangely thin enough to drink this entire bottle myself. i very easily could at the abv% and not have a headache in the morning. really enjoyable... 8/4/8/5/17/4.2

WinoInTraining (109) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Caramel, reddish color. Prominent head. Big, simple and not very memorable. Aromas of brown sugar, graham cracker, sugar. Same on the palate. Weird metalic twang on the finish, but thankfully it just drops of to nothing real quick.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle 171 of 1800. Pours clear dark amber with a large, creamy, light brown head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie, nutty), average hops (flowers, pine), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of dates, candied apples, pears, and brown sugar. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle from tytoanderson, thanks T. A quad under 9% thats a new one. 41st quad rating. Tieing me with the bigman Ungstrup, on that note, happy 40th Jens. Bottle 1004/1800. Pours reddish orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet. Taste is sweet and slightly malty with a touch of smoke. Overall this interesting and drinkable but not up to style standards.
