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.

djd07 (9533) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle thanks to zinister at the August tasting. Pours a dark amber with small off white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is roasted malt An raisin. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt with chocolate and light roasty finish. Alchol hidden nicely, a very good American strong ale from Cigar City.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
750mL from Grassroots Market in Jax, FL. The pour is a clear, tea amber/red with a large, billowing tan head that leaves webby tan lace. Nose is cheesy hops and small cocoa. Taste is very sticky sweet with cocoa, strawberry, and even some grain alcohol in the finish. Not a fan.

CCB! .. Pours a deep tan ruby, decent foam head, sticky lacing .. . caramel, cheap bagged fruit, expensive soil, and estranged toffee .. . a bit muddled and lacking direction but pretty good .. . Please do not offer my god a peanut.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a deep brown with tan head. Aroma of strong malt, dark fruit, earth, burnt toast. Flavor is much the same and very sweet with an earthy bitter at the end. Mouthfeel is heavy body and low carbonation. It is what it is.

darkguardian (730) - Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Nose is caramal malt with a nice citrusy hop underpinning. Pour is a murky dark amber, almost red. Lightly bitter on the back end with alot of biscuity malt and caramel up front. This is really well balanced and very enjoyable.

JohnnyJ (5354) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle. Dark amber pour, with a creamy off-white/tannish head. Tons of caramel... it really dominates the flavor, sweet, raisin, light fruit, and bitter slightly metallic hops. Pretty good for the style, but overall its just a middle of the road beer for me.

mixmasterob (1044) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to burg326. Poured a dark brown with amber hues around the edges. Big khaki colored head, nice lace. Aroma was big rich caramel malts, some dark fruits, raisin, then a nice dose of piney hops. Reminded me much of a 2010 Nemesis minus the roast. Touch of heat too. Smells delish. Flavors were also big on the caramel, big time rich and sweet. Light fruit, some citrus, decent bittersweet finish. Smooth stuff, medium carbonation. Dangerously similar to a 2010 Nemesis if I remember correctly...
