bomber. Been pretty happy with dry dock so far, so curious about this one. Pours a very dark brown with red hue, and half finger of beige, bubbly head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasted, caramel, molasses, toasted nuts. Medium to full bodied with some heat on the finish. Flavor is sweet toasted nuts, with a lingering sweet finish. Didn’t live up to my expectations, but not a bad beer.

Pour is ruby red with thin to no white head on tap at brewery, aroma has notes of sweet caramel, toffee, hints of dark fruit and even some cocoa. Taste is a nice balance of sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruit, some slight spice notes along with some bitter cocoa, finishing fairly sweet.

Tap @ Rackhouse. Deep red brown appearance with a small, tan head. Very sweet malty, caramel, brown sugar, light toffee nose. Fairly thick, syrupy, dark candy sugar, thick caramel, toasty malty flavor. A little but of bitterness on the finish but overall just too sweet for my taste.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
10% version on tap at The Rackhouse on 9/3/11. Clear whiskey nutty burnt orange, with a small beige head. Aroma of chewy cereal malts and light peat. Taste was incredibly deceptive for a 10er. Tasted no more than 6%. Chewy dark malts, cereal grains, light yeastiness that’s earthy but sweet...hard to decipher. Not shabby, but a little plain and lacking nuance for such a nigh percent beer.

Ratman197 (9714) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap at Hops and Pies poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt, cocoa and light fruittines. Palate was medium bodied and smoth. Flavors of carmel, cocoa, toasted malt and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering malty finish.

Camons (5885) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 2, 2011
Tap @ Freshcraft, Denver. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, raisins, caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Rather sweet, but ok beer. 130311

notalush (4839) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Tap at Rackhouse - pours a deep purple - fizzy, with a minimal head - fairly sweet, almost sticky, with notes of plum, raisin and toffee up front - sweetness lingers through the middle as a very mild peaty earthiness develops - a little bit of vegetal character in the mix - finishes a little spicy, with lingering earth - no noticeable alcohol - a couple of flaws, but not bad.

Sammy (8573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2011
On-tap sasonal at the brewpub. Smoke and chocolate in aromas. Dark brown colour. Cloying, not so drinkable because of coffee mixed with sugar and burnt parts. Overall, way too sweet and they describe it so.
