Bottle. The pour is a muddy amber with a nice tan head, good retention lacing. Aroma is small citrus hops, lots of malt, sugar, and a bit of booze. Taste isn’t much better: syrupy sweet with a little bit of caramel and resiny hops. Palate is cloying sweetness. One dimensional. What a mess.

Thinned syrupy caramel pour with a thinned if non existent head. A chewy malty cardboard musty aroma to smell. Sticky sweet sugary caramel. Thick aromas and flavor. Sticky scotchy earth flavors blend well with a latent medicinal burn. Slight honeyed earthy smoked out touch towards the finish. Rather thin in profile. Not going lots of places, but still quaffable, almost easily so.

Bottle shared by phaleslu. Thanks Peter! Pours Amber with very light tan head. Aroma is all malts with hints of sugar and booze. Flavor is heavy on the caramel malts with hints of toffee and brown sugar. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty average american strong ale.

Rustyham (1724) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Aroma is very sweet and spicy, lots of malt. Nutmeg, cinnamon, apricot. Colors deep reddish brown, translucent. Lots of refraction, looks viscous. Flavor is pretty bad, like a salty rune juice that’s been sitting in the sun fora while. Very warm in the back of the throat.

EithCubes (4888) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle, murky dark brown and creamy lacing tan head. Heavy caramel nose, sweet taste and dulled hops, full body, reminds of a DIPA/Barleywine that’s had a little too long on the shelf. This bottle, however, is new.

phaleslu (6498) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2011
750 ml bottle from hopscotch or GatorGuy92- both sent me bottles almost simultaneously, so thanks guys! Pours a cloudy red-amber color with a small khaki ring for a head. Aroma is basically a sweet malt bomb, with some milk sugar, toast, caramel and cardboard behind it. Flavor of brown sugar, toffee, tea, and tons more sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Couldn’t drink very much of this and glad I split it 8 ways. Pretty one-dimensional.

Scopey (6812) - 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.

Chalsk (1065) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2011
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.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
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.
