Scopey (8540) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle at Ang’s Birthday tasting. It pours deep ruby amber, with a thin foamy beige head. The nose is candy floss, massive strawberry jam, red fruit and wood. The taste is all about the jam, as well as wood, port, boozy, raisin, currant, sweet strawberry and plum. Full body, average carbonation, high sweetness and sticky mouth-feel. Too sweet, a bit like chugging a jar of strawberry jam.

Pours a deep amber brown color with an off white foam head. Aroma of dark fruit and booze. Malty sweet. Boozy. Missing much needed complexity.

Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co., London. Pours dark, ruby-brown with an off-white head. Some dark malt, dark sugars, caramel in the aroma. Damn sweet flavor, lots of toffee, dark fruits, fruit jam. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish, tons of sugar, jammy fruits, raspberry, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and toasty, sweet malts. Very good, big-time beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
A Mes rate. Bottle at Ang’s birthday tasting at the craft.
Red amber body with a good off white head. Full on sugar and caramel. Really over the top. Just sweet and corny with a hint of baked beans. Cheap American chocolate character too that does it no favours. Sorry guys, really no liking this one too much.

boFNjackson (4188) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle (thanks to Beerlando for this one)... Poured deep red with an off-white head. Quite sweet and worty. A slightly oxidized character but was in the threshold of quite enjoyable. I like oxidization a little bit so it didn’t bother me there. Tobacco, tropical fruits, sweet tea tones, floral hops, and the alcohol was well masked for it’s strength.

TheEpeeist (3499) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2011
25.4 oz bottle. Deep purple brown with splattered beige foam. Nose is dates, bubblegum and bananas Foster with hints of marmalade. Almost full body with fine carb providing a zing as it tails off. Taste is toffee, cherry vanilla, grapefruit and unripe peach. Not as sweet as it smells with hops adding just enough bitter citrus peel.

Nickls (1946) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Tap, CK. Murky reddish muddy brown with a medium tan head. Grapefruity and resinous hops with a lot of raisins and maltiness in the aroma. Very resiny in the taste, pine, and lacquer. Medium, very sticky body. Warming and pretty tasty, but a bit much after a while.
