[7099-20150304] 12floz bottle. Mild grainy toasted malt aroma. Hazy, dark brown mahogany body with a quick foamy off-white head. Boozy soured yeast malt flavour has a toasted grain undertone. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice one finger tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, raisins and yeast. Flavor was sweet with dark fruit, caramel, raisins, yeast and had a touch of cherries.

poisoneddwarf (1951) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle, thanks Drake! Virginia tick. Aroma consists of jammy fruit, bread, Lucky Charms--interesting. Pours mahogany with a medium beige head with great retention; laces a little. Taste is sweet, savory and roasty; the whole package is reminiscent of buttered toast with raspberry jam. Mouthfeel is creamy, body is medium. I wasn’t expecting too much from this one; I haven’t had a good dubbel in awhile. A nice surprise!

Coffee black color poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Has a small oft white colored head. Has a great porter flavor. Not bad at all.

caramel, raisin, clear, medium white head, reddish brown color, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, soft carbonation, long finish, sweet maltiness lingers, overall well balanced for a stronger beer.

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
2015-03-04. Very dark brown-black body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma of sweet malt, light cocoa and burnt sugars. Flavour is similar, sugary brown sugar, light tang. A bit odd overall, not really to my tastes. Smooth average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Bottle shared by solidfunk.

Homer321 (2744) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Pour is deep, deep red, to brown; minimal off white head. Aroma is grapey and oxidized. Not sure how long this one has been cellared. Some dried fruit aroma in there too. Taste is slightly winy with a red grape flavor, prickly on the tongue. Moderate papery oxidation. Ok, but even fresh, I doubt it would impress me much. Very thin, a little alcohol, not much going on.

Bottle courtesy of solidfunk, thank you! Dark amber brown color, bright off white head. Aroma of toasted brownies. Taste is cocoa biscuit.
