mcberko (10551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a murky dark amber with a towering beige head. Aroma of yeast, scotch, caramel and some candied sugar. Flavorur is the same range of flavours, with a very yeasty and highly carbonated body. Quite nice.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 8, 2009
Botella. Dark brown hazy colour with a nice big head. Sweet roasty caramel and malty aroma with yeast and dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has mildly roasty malt and caramel with yeast, dark fruits, spice and some brown sugar.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Never-ending retention. Vinous notes alongside dark fruit and sweet chocolate in the aroma. Full-bodied and meaty with medium carbonation. Sweet chocolate, dark fruits, restrained alcohol and hops. Sweet, dark fruit and chocolate finish. Thanks go out to darkguardian for providing the bottle!

Sammy (9973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2008
A winter warmer. Pours with a huge head. Mild tabacco and smoke aroma. The scotch is a purposeful butterscotch. Lovely after fish.Smooth drinking, though not something for every night.

pivnizub (9517) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2013
Bouteille: Reddish chestnut-amber coloured, stable off-white foamy layer, sweet caramelly-toasty nose, some vinous traces detectable, a bit like a german Doppelbock; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, light to medium bodied, but a bit slim for a beer of 8.7%; some vinous traces, again, in the fruity-caramelly finish. a good brew, not too demanding...

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
@ ZBF 2010. Pours deep hazy amber with floaties. Little retention and no lace. Very malty, sweet, maple candies nose. Taste is similar with doppelbock like sweetness and light spices. A good scotch ale.

gnoff (9191) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2007
(750 ml bottle, thanks oh6gdx!) Labeled 8.7% ABV. Clear dark brown color, lasting tan head. Slightly acidic, a bit roasted scent. Weak raissin mixed with chocolate and vinous taste, also alcohol. Warming alcohol feeling, but not in the bad way it sometimes is. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2006
750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Dark brown beer with purple highlights and a thick tan head. Soft plummy aroma and caramel malts underneath a rich pudding-like spiciness. Rum, caramel and sweet baking spices with light banana and chocolate as well. Everything is well-balanced and very inviting. Soft palate, slightly chewy but not cloying, chocolate and caramel flavours from the majority of the malts. Warming intensifies the lovely yeasty spiciness. Earthy bitterness on the back along with some light prickly alcohol drying out each mouthful. Custurdy richness. Lingering spice and cocoa on the finish. Quite a lovely brew

deyholla (8859) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a hazy dirt brown with a gray head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a combination of light fruit, grain and spice with a hint of caramel. Flavor starts with earthy grains and light fruit by a bit of backing spice.
