ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 19, 2013
FROM NOTES: October 29, ’13. From a 651 ml. capped and waxed bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Burnt toast aroma and undeniable burnt brown sugar notes. A bit of dark fruits in the finish, but nowhere near as strong as I want it to be. A: Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Very little "bubble show" at all. T: Sweet figs and some dark roasty notes with alcohol present but not overwhelming. The sweetness is the main event, with the candied sugars constantly reaffirming their presence. I wish there was a little more complexity here.... P: The mouth feel is light of medium with an alcohol warmth present, carbonation is low with a light acidic finish. O: I would like to see the yeast take a stronger stance in the taste, and a little more complexity in the flavor, but overall, this is a decent quad.

The aroma is interesting. It’s very grainy, sour, but a little tangy. It’s very unique, very different. It has an almost invading nose… it gets you with an earthy grain character that’s tart and sweet at the same time. Something about it reminds me of what it would be like to lick sun tan lotion off of someone’s body after a day at the beach. I don’t know what else to say about this… it’s easy, but very affective (yes, spelled with an “a”) on the tongue and well into the finish. Still, it’s easy for a quad.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle:   Dark deep amber, some ruby highlights, thin to moderate soft sandy head, little lacing.   Bready nose up front, a bit sweet, some tootsie roll that appears more grape than the regular stuff, with only a touch of dark pitted fruit.   Tangy start, a bit brighter than most, and with that grape tootsie roll that actually seems more like grape popsicle on the tongue.   Has a soft dark pitted fruit to it, but less than most.   Not as heavy as others either.   Very tangy on the tongue.   Moderate body and mouthful.   Sweet tangy finish, with lingering grape popsicle stick and light amounts of dark pitted fruit.   A bit unusual in the amount of tanginess this one presents.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

22 oz bottle. Ruby brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of plum, caramel, candy sugar, light earthy notes. Taste is of unripe plum, peach skin, candy sugar, burnt caramel, and light fudge.

travita (3729) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, beige colored head, and reddish murky brown in color. The smell is toffee, candy, candi sugar, fruits, brown sugar, and some cherry acidic thing. The taste is similar, sugary, a touch of tang, complex, and interesting.

651 ml. capped and waxed bottle. Pours a medium, well retained light beige head, with hints of lacing, over a clear reddish brown (SRM 20) body....nose is dried fruits including fig, raisin, plum, light sugars, minimal phenolics and hops....taste is slightly sweet to start, dried fruits including fig, plum, light pepper, finishing drier, with a moderate spice bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low with a light acid finish. This is more on the Abt end of the style, but it is a rather simple beer needing much greater depth from the malts and yeast. A redo of the malt bill and perhaps a change of yeast. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong raisin notes with some heavy toffee and caramel. There is also some alcohol detectable in the aroma. The flavor is also very heavy on the dark fruit and is fairly boozy. I get a lot of raisins and figs as well as some toffee and a lot of brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice, but I wish it was less boozy.

brewballs (162) - USA - OCT 20, 2013
Raisin filter. Smooth head. The alcohol is there but not prominent. Washes down like a simple wine. A smidge bitter but not too overpowering. Overall a good beer but I want to try more of their brews, to get a better picture. The price doesn’t justify the brew though. Seems a tad over inflated as well.
