JK (4844) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Skyview Tasting, 2/23/13. Brown beer. Sweet malt and fairly well hopped. Prominent alcohol flavor. Heavy palate, with some burn from the combination of hops and alcohol. Lightly sour.

DrSilverworm (7995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
750ml bottle shared with the group. Bottled May/5/11. Hazy dark amber/brown/reddish color. Nice thin beige/khaki head. Good dots of lace. Interesting malty nose, caramel, some dark fruit. Nice smooth kind of creamy texture. Bigger body. Nice sweet taste, not cloying, so it’s not too bad... Some vegetal flavor. Light smokiness. Little warmth in the finish, which I like.. Drinking pretty nice for how old it is. Good complexity.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thsnks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy amberish-brown with thin beige lacing. Smells sweet and BOOZY. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, but boozy.

Iphonephan (4015) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2013
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours almost black with a cream tan head. Malty aroma. Flavors of chocolate, licorice with a hop bite.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2013
The beer pours a red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of red malt and dirt. The flavor is full of dirt and earth, as well as some toffee and sugary sweetness. I also get some pine from the hops and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not a fan of red ales and this one was no exception.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2013
750ml from JMFG for FFL payouts - thanks, Jay! Big viscous copper pour with lively carbonation and a raucous, puffy head. Nose of super sweet malts, and enough fruits to convey a somewhat disconcerting tartness. Taste is citrus and pine gone off just a bit, contributing to the moderately infected vibe. Hugely malty and sweet, but with the other flavors it leads to enough clashing that I couldn’t enjoy this one a whole lot.

Bacterial (1979) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at Bob’s - very interesting. Sweet nose, complex taste, malty and dark fruits abound. On the sweet side for sure.

Bomber. Murky reddish brown pour with a off white head. Very malty. Some boozy sweetness. Decent.
