Bottle @ Stephenís house. Dark reddish maroon appearance with a brown head. Quite spicy, brown sugar, caramel malty, raisin, dark berry, leather aroma. Caramel, toasty, a touch burnt toffee, slightly smoky, spicy yeasty flavor. Fun beer to share- not sure Iíd want a bottle to myself.

hopscotch (10085) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle... SMAACMSM O-Town Throwdown, Part Sept... Lightly hazed burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki-colored head. Fantastic, everlasting retention. Phenolic, earthy nose. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Favors the sweet side of balance. Medium to heavy residual sugar; moderate hop and ethanol bitterness. Caramel or praline. Lengthy, sweet, spicy finish. Kudos to Beerlando for bringing this one to share!

750ml bottle shared courtesy of dickinsonbeer. Poured a medium and cloudy amber brownish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of spices, ginger, dark fruits, and bready. Tastes of dark fruits, ginger, spices, and other fruitiness. Light to medium alcohol in the finish.

Sammy (9572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2010 Kenís botle. very good, and worthy of Charlevoix as world beaters, but not the lupulus. Big bubbly head on dark body. Yeasty aromas of Belgian yeast. Taste of licorish. It is sweet, it is lacey. There is some white pepper, cardomon. It is very drinkable.Lateral tasting at Volo v. Lupulus, and Hibernus is even a clearer winner.

GT2 (9360) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 4, 2012
750mL 2009 ed thanks to a generous trader on BA. Pours a clear doppelbock amber. Very malty auburn color, good clarity. Carbonation is huge generating a massive, yellowish, almost orangish head. Excellent retention and big soapy swathes of lace. Nose is pina colada, some fresh pineapple, big esters, flowers, mild metallic character, some licorice, fruit cake. Taste is similar to Gouden Carolus: mild chocolate, licorice, dark fruits, but not nearly as sweet or alcoholic feeling. Not too minerally. Decently heavy mouthfeel but not overwhelming. Palate is effervescent, clovey, sugary. Plays a difficult roll in being sweet and dark fruit heavy without being cloying or syrupy. Believe it or not, but this is a little bit reminiscent of Westvleteren 8.

750mL bottle, pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of apricot, other dark fruits, yeast, caramel malts and molasses. Flavour of molasses, sweet caramel malts and dark dried fruits - lingering sweetness of fruits and molasses.

Thanks to puzzl for sharing this. Rich brown coloured brew with a thick pillowy tan head. Quite a sweet lovely maltiness, plums and dates with a fresh toasted wheaty maltiness. Spicy and yeasty with a lovely fruity sweetness. Chewy, sweet, wheaty and very tasty. Herbal/spicy yeastiness.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark reddish brown with off white head, aroma has notes of honey, caramel, slight banana, hints of chocolate, hints of roast, lots of dark fruit with raisin, figs and plums as well, touch of dark molasses. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, white fruits and some green raisin, touch of chocolate and banana, hints of spice and ginger notes in there with a touch of earth, finishing fairly sweet, slight spicy.

DrSilverworm (8567) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
750ml bottle, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Bottle says 2009 on it. Totally hazy dark brown / red color. Thin khaki head. Spray of lace. Whoa, that nose. Very unique. Big plum candy, dark fruit, rose, interesting unique medley of spices that I canít name. Incense? Some tobacco, some kind of herb that one might be inclined to burn for aromatics. Something floral, or medicinal about it? Really weird, herbal, spicy dark fruity aroma, so bizarre. Some caramel malt. Spicy taste, moderate bitter, minimal sweet. Just a light hint of alcohol warmth, itís reasonably well hidden under the intense aroma. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish, and a big body. Definitely a big, flavorful beer, very unique flavor... But the flavor direction is one that I canít really love personally, despite how odd and unusual it is.
