hopscotch (10200) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle… Pours dark and burnt-orange when held to light with a small, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma offers chocolate and fudge intermingled with herbal and orange peel aspects. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor presents prominent notes of singed caramel and ethanol nearly eclipsing a subtle shade of milk chocolate. Boozy, buttery toffee finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Hazy amber with a tiny off-white head. Brown sugar dominates the nose, a little nuts too and a vague whiff of yeast. Quite full-bodied but hardly any carbonation. Again lots of brown sugar and nuts with a warming alcohol in the finish with hardly any hops. 231211

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pours dark brown with a huge tan head. The nose is old grass and coffee. Some chocolate and hints of oxidation but not much. Taste is bitter at first but gives way to some sweetness followed by more bitter. Mouthfeel is thin. This feels like a porter or low alc stout. Drinkable though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Tap at Kickback’s in Jax, FL. The pour is a hazy clear amber orange with a healthy beige head. Nice lacing. Nose is slightly olive brine with sweet strawberry, earth, lemon, old caramel. All over the place. Taste is tart up front. Spritzy, lemony, sharp. Decently acidic and sour. Citric and Belgian in profile creates something extremely similar to a BFM sour. Pretty decent. Sour ale for all practical purposes.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Somewhat confused beer. Orange and spice like a tripel, dried fruit spiciness and rich dark flavors and aromas like a quad, with perhaps a hint of lactic sourness like a lambic. No reason it has to adhere to any specific style ... some of my favorites are American hopped tripels, or lambic IPAs, or any of the complex hybrids that seem to be popping up all over. Maybe just a tad more alcoholic than I expected. Nice, drinkable, great complement for the duck I and jerked chicken that I served with it.
