danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Grand Wine & Spirit. The appearance is a muddled burgundy to brown. The nose is butterscotch, pear skins, and other malty things. The flavors follow suite with a bit of a sour or granny smith apple that is overtaken by rubbing alcohol that does fade a touch and lets in a little cherry kick. Mouth is medium bodied. An unrefined brew that could use some work.

Bottle courtesy of Adam of Juba, thank you sir! Clear dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of spiced toasted brownies. Taste is herbal sweetish brownies. A bit messy.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid ruby with minimal off-white head. Nose is tart cherry/berry, earthy scotch malt. Tastes earthy, malty, with a nice fruity cherry and berry flavor, good complexity, and ample palate heft.

Leighton (10987) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury - aged a few years. Pours cloudy brown with a tan foam head. Simple malt character with light tangy fruit notes, toasty bread and faint earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with some and dry toast, along with caramel and basic bread. OK. Worked well in my chili recipe.

gripweed57 (682) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown liquid with a small beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malt with an intense dark fruit character. Flavor is more roasted malt with notes of prunes and molasses. Very lightly carbonated. Full-bodied and complex . Very slight smokiness in finish.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle, which opened suspiciously easy. I feared a flat pour, but it still fizzled relatively normally. The dark red beer carries a warming caramel-sugar aroma, and drinks like it could be caramel sauce on a sundae. (#5011, 5/9/2013)

AirForceHops (3185) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle at Rye & Thyme - Leominster, MA. Brownish black color with creamy 1 finger nail size, diminishing off white head, no lacing. Nose is malty and light peat. Chewy caramel sweetness with lots of peat, some traces of smoke, bright fruitiness and a slight alcohol burn. Just the right amount of peat. Overall I really enjoyed drinking this and I would drink it again if offered.
