travita (3954) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is floral, hops, fruits, and caramel. The look is copper, no head, and clear. The taste is fruits, caramel, candy, and some hop bitterness.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Rated on 4-23-2009. This bottled beer pours a small ivory head with a short retention, transparent reddish body, soft, slow rising fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, citrus hops, and caramel. The Taste is malty, caramel, semi-sweet, alcohol, and some hoppy bitterness. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable; however, I was caught off guard with some hoppiness due to this beer’s style. Interesting take on the style. This is a sipping beer at 10%ABV and worth trying.

TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2013
22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a thick foamy head. Nose is grape, nuts and brown bread. Rich and malty almost full body with a tang. Taste is toffee and dates with a hint of smoke leading to a burnt sugar finish. Simple, clean and spot on stylewise.

Bendrixian (1108) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
Hazy and creamy head. huge yeast aroma, has a whiskey note as well and some cereal and cherry notes. Big beer, with a hot finish and a big profile and a sweet flavour. Great beer!!

Lagerboy (1231) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Bomber. Mostly clear brown-ish orange, small lasting creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel malt and fruity yeast. Sweet caramel toasted malts dominate the taste, fruity and boozy, some light bitterness. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, lightly hopped. Packs a wallop, the high ABV and dense sweet maltiness make this lager NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Atheist_Peace (948) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Clear mahogany pour with a tan head. Molasses and rum on the nose with lots of cooked fruit, brown sugar. Really boozy on the palate with a deep fruit character and some whiskey notes. Robust in body.

bbcd (214) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2013
brown with a large tan head and long retention. roast, dark fruits, toffee, raisin, sugar, harsh biting hops. heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness. full body, creamy feel, moderate carb, long bitter finish. a very "American" interpretation of a doppelbock. the bitterness is honestly overdone for the style and it starts to feel more like a really dark barleywine instead.

lliams (196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2013
I love the mouthfeel of this beer. it’s like a werthers original lolly. big bright malt bomb. slightly too much alcohol in the aroma and taste, but just slightly. really delicious otherwise
