PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2008
Orlando, Fl. - Knightly Spirits, 750 ml tissue-wrapped capped bottle. Murky, dark orange to light brown pour with a sticky khaki colored head that stick around a while and leaves a nice trail of lace. Pleasant aroma of toffee, raisins, some molasses. Smooth flavor with chocolate notes, toffee, dates, sweet cherries. Blended well together and extremely drinkable. Mouthfeel is luxuriously smooth and clean, velvety, touch of carbonation.

bhensonb (13218) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 10, 2008
750 ml bottle; bottled on 28 Apr 2007. Aroma is caramel, with something of a scotch ale aspect. Color is amber with garnet notes in the thin parts. Rather flat white head. Something of a cola aroma as the glass comes to the lips. Medium body with slightly coarse carbonation. Roasted caramel with some dark fruit notes. There’s a lot of other stuff too. Asparagus? It’s complex, tasty and very satisfying. Finishes well balanced - slightly sweet with some bitter.

juiceisloose (1257) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
This one poured out a deep orange color with a thick and creamy off white head that displays excellent retention. This is one great looking beer. As the foam settles it leaves thick sheets of lacing around the glass. The aroma is very appealing of caramel malts, toffee, dark fruits, apples, and candy sugar. The flavor really stands out in this one. Flavors of chocolate nuts, sweet dark fruits, caramel dipped apples, and candy sugar lead the way. The flavor is really good and sweet but balanced out just enough with some spices and yeast as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation that leaves a nice clean feeling on the palate. This one is really smooth and easy to drink with a nice sweet finish to it. The complexity of the brew really lead to an enjoyable experience. Really good stuff.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2008
20080407 750ml bottle picked up at Oak Tree. Hazy, amber, some visible eff, medium-small, lasting off-white head. Aroma is nutty, fresh, bready, prominent notes of date, toffee, and some light apple must. Flavor continues with nut and grainy, yeasty, earthy bread notes. Body is a bit on the thin side, but airy and with the usual De Glazen Toren dose of sparkling effervescence. Some muddled old fruit and spice late and slight bitter astringency as from wood.
