JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2009
Beautiful bottle, thanks Dany. Pours a nice deep chestnut red with a large khaki head. Aroma is really sweet darker fruits, especially dates and figs. Pretty sugary in the mouth, much like a quad but a little lighter in body. Big on figs, dates, honey, and rum sugars. Good, nothing mind blowing but nice. Too light and spritzy in the mouth for this style. The bottle is really neat though.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle pours hazy brown color with off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, with a spicy caramel malt sweetness. Maybe something tart. Flavor is dark sweetness, dark fruit, slightly tart, and finishes way too sweet. I would have rated higher but this was just too sweet for me.

Oakes (13860) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Slightly reddish-brown. Cloudy. Deep fruity notes (almost tomato, but also beet and plum) with light chocolate. Big tangy fruits (tomato, dark fruits). Kind of tart in the finish. Decent, but shattering no earth.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
2007 bottle @ kp party. Hazy medium warm brown color with nice beige head. Sweet nutty aroma is earthy with lots of dark fruit. Lots of bread crust in the body. Fig jam and nuts too. Very nice, the carbonation but not so bad. Jammy with a nice blend of berries, molasses, dates, and figs. Interesting.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Bouteille de 750ml vieillie plus d’un an. Nos yeux contemplent une bière de couleur rubis légèrement trouble ainsi qu’un col de mousse imposant et durable. Au nez on découvre des arômes de raisin rouge, d’épices, de poivre, de vieux caramel, de prune sous un fond d’alcool. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de raisin rouge, de prune, d’anis, de pain brun, de poivre, d’alcool, de cerise confîte et de madère. La finale dure et dure longtemps. Quelle complexité!!

TURDFERGUSON (4027) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle shared by emacgee. Thanks Ethan. Nose is very spicy and herb--basil, oregano, yeast, sweet malt. Flavor is a little less complex than expected, a big brew but not too much going on other than the spices. Good and weird at the same time.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle shared by Ethan. One of the last of a long night, and it didn’t do much to distinguish itself, unfortunately. Dark hazy brown pour with big off-white head. Spice and herbs, though nothing very distinct. We suspected oregano, which was surprising. Mild fruits and candied sugar. A bit peppery.
