Rune (10530) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2015
355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Lacing rings from an opaque mahogany coloured body. Tan-coloured head that stayed well. Moderate smell of earthy, brown and black malts, hints of molasses. Rather comprehensive taste of prunes, ash, molasses, and sweet liquorice offset by dark spices. Prolonged finish. Medium bodied. Pretty nice (Tromsø 17.09.2015).

thedm (5367) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 13, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy auburn colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium mild malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of mild rye mild spice dark malt and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

altonbrownd (5111) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Dark black body with thin, tan head. Nose is smoky, malty, spicy. Taste is malty, caramel, dark chocolate, plums and fruity. Finished drier, again with chocolate kicking in. Not bad at all.

tennisjoel (1300) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Tart pepper and spices aroma. Appearance is live body with lots of active legs. Quickly diminishing head. Kind of a spiced saison. Flavors are smoke, sour candy, cookie, pepper. Kind of unique even though I am not a huge fan.

Changed (459) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark dark reddish brown. Tan, lively head, good retention. Aroma is spicy, yeast, dark fruits, roasted malt. Flavor is dark fruit, slightly tart, roasted malt on the finish. Dry, with a creamy finish and lively carbonation to start. Long, slightly spicy finish. ABV seems higher than 6.4%. This beer is nuanced; I’m a big fan.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Tom L. Very dark brown with a quickly dissolving head. Vinous aroma with some nuts, alcoholic, sweet, a little bitter and spicy taste. Medium body, vinous, spiced apple finish.

sebletitje (8663) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Bouteille, Anno 2013, bottled 09/20/2013. Brune foncée, col blanc-cassé moyen. Arôme est malté grillé, pointe de levure belge, retrouve une note de mélasse et un côté herbacé , botanique-soda dont le poivré reste un peu en retrait. Plais est malté, clairement orienté sur un côté belge dans la levure, petite note venant chatouiller la gorge, raisin, fruité noir, sucre candi. Malt carapils, pâle et chocolat. Retrouve une épaisseur caractéristique du seigle. Fini reste belge, grillé avec une fine note d’amertume houblonnée.

This looks, smells, and tastes like a slightly boozy Irish stout. Taste of rum and roast. Not a lot of floral.
