750ml corked and caged bottle purchased in Reno. Pours a deep copper brown color with a large fluffy ecru head. The aroma was earthy, roast, moderately sweet caramel, some woodiness, with hints of fruit and smoke. The flavor had much of the same earthiness, herbal notes, roasted malt, some dark fruits, and caramel. There were two things that bothered me and really had me questioning the age of the bottle and how it was stored. This had a metallic quality that didn’t belong as well as a higher than expected degree of tartness. These didn’t go with what was otherwise a pretty good beer.

Hm, the chermens had better keep an eye out and step up to recognise this serious threat to one of their classic brews reputation of quality. Poured with a very nice light tan thick foamy frothy head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a very lovely clear dark cherry wood. Nose is malt fruit yeast and a bit roast. Flavor is like flavor and more of it. Body is excellent: soft round, but not too & with excellent carbonation. Finish is very good- not too sweet but plenty of flavor and character to keep this beer commanding my interest. Finish is of short to medium length. Outstanding beer and a session, no question.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2010
2007 edition from the Rare Beer Club. Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with an enormous orange-khaki head that lingered. The aroma was a wonderfully complex mix of peach, banana, brown sugar, raisins, cherries and must. The flavor was tart and bitter with notes of brown sugar, peaches, cherries and must. The finish was medium length tart fruits and must. Medium body. Interesting.

(750ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a hazy amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of raisins, plums, brown sugar, and subtle juniper and spices in the background. Flavor of plum, vinous, raisins, red currants, light roasted malt, dates, and brown sugar with a somewhat sticky finish.

A dark, chocolately reddish brown pour and head.roasty, musty,earthy. As the beer breathes, nuances appear. This is a cloudy, brown beer, medium to heavy sourness, medium body, a bit slick in texture, fizzy carbonation, astringent finish. Overall, a beer that is very distinctive as it warms and breaths.
