MesandSim (7118) - 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 (4192) - 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 (3608) - 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 (2076) - Alexandria, Virginia, 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.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a light haze and a finger of soapy, off-white head. S: Very, very malty and sweet. Lots of caramel and toffee with a strong milk chocolate note to it as well. There’s just a hint of vanilla along with some mild citrus and pine hop notes. T: The flavor is quite similar to the aroma. Intensely malty and sweet with tons of caramel and toffee. A light toasted bread note along with milk chocolate and faint citrus (tangerine) hop flavors. Almost no bitterness to speak of. M: Medium to full bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: Tasted good, but a small pour was more than enough for me.

bleeng (1595) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle shared by zinister at the August 2011 tasting. Dark brown and a bit clear. Nose is malty, a bit chocolate, caramel. Taste is the same with a rich, full body. Lots of chocolate. Alcohol is hidden very well. I like this style when pulled off deliciously like this one.
