Emeister84 (1281) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Aromas of cocoa, roasted coffee, nuts, toffee, toast, earth, and slight citrus fruit. Clear, very dark brown with red highlights, the head is khaki and retains moderately. Light sweetness, complemented by perceptible strength, and some bitter roastiness and smoke; great balance. Medium body, low carbonation, and a dry, toasty finish with some lingering fruity and nutty flavors.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a clear red color with a decent off white head. The nose is full of malty goodness. Notes of caramel, slight earth, and bread. Flavor follows suite with the caramel and earthy notes blending together well. Finishes fairly clean. A solid brew for malt lovers.

Luvystypotables (870) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2014
A medium intensity aroma of sugary malt, pours a reddish brown with a short lasting off-white head. Taste of malt, scotch and sugars. Creamy feel with a sugary malt finish.

Radek Kliber (6572) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Where and how: bottle 355 ml - 8% 19.2P edition
Aroma heavy set malts. Sweet bottom with pleasantly well developed mid. Mild vinous fell. Finish noted with some fusel fuel.
Appearance :
Top: mid sized, contrasting white top.
Base: clear, deep amber-brown.
Palate : medium bodied.
Taste: toffee, toasted malts, candy like mid. Lacking peaty smoke. Sweet sugars without anything to balance. One sided adventure.
Other notes with some peat smoke this would be rather solid brew.

nearbeer (3933) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2014
12 oz. bb August 2014. Clear mahogany with a small spit of cream. Nose is cherry, raisin, toffee and just a touch of citrus zest. Taste is dark toffee, raisin, black cherry, and just a touch of roast. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and is of course to the malty sweet side but has a decent balancing of light char and roast.

jefcon (1446) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Draft. Gentle aromas of soap, peaty malts, a little sharp on the palate but descending to malty sweetness.
