Eructoblaster (3215) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Can - 500ml. Limpid amber body with average carbonation and a thin off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with spicy hints. Taste carries some fruity notes. It is rather bland and leaves a bad alcohol aftertaste.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 29, 2010
50 cl can. Drinkable, but not very good. Way too sweet. Basically a dark double-like beer that is a little more red than brown. Possibly posing as a Scotch Ale. Not much taste except the sweetness, with a bit of caramel and alcohol, though drinks easy for 8.4%. Cheap, strong swill.
