2008 fucken a bro bottle opened at home that was fucken stupid hard to get open due to the massive amount of wax. First whiff and this is a textbook example of oxidation. Pours a bit hazy, dark brown head with a dark brown head (that is surprisingly strong for the age). Somewhat boozy, caramel, cardboard/papery, quite sweet aroma. Fairly is similarly spicy and boozy with some toffee, caramel, cardboard, and some herbal notes. Goddamn, for what is supposedly 7.5% abv, this sure tastes stronger. Definitely wasn’t meant to be kept this long but it is still somewhat interesting in its own right.

Dark brown in color with a bright orange-hued, cream colored head, this double ESB smells great! Fresh, sweet, bright hops and caramel malts make for a happy, candy-like aroma. It has a meaty quality that couples with a somewhat thin body and an easy but robust palate. Smooth and nice.

ddemmingjr (741) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle: pours deep ruby brown, milky light brown head that persists. Nose is big, dark fruits, biscuit, burnt toast, toffee and milk chocolate. Milk thistle, roasted malts and some mild pine notes, molasses and toffee sugars bring lactic acids that envelope the tongue. Milky, chocolate and roasted coffee malt heaven here. Bold flavored beer not for the faint of heart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

steeleliver (121) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2012
On tap at Boulders St. Cloud. Pours a burgundy color, with a small beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and a tinge of malt. Flavor is caramel and fresh, with the double bitterness just barely apparent. Solid.

On tap, Beer Kitchen, KCMO. Fluffy, quickly dissipating, dark tan head. Malty, heady, boozy nose... not expected in an ESB style. Simply delicious bitter sweet, alcohol with a rich mouth feel. Thoroughly enjoyed.

wchesser (1305) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Very dark mahogany with fading head and good lacing. Big malty nose with dried fruit, tobacco. Full bodied with taste following nose. Most similar to Great Divide Hibernation. Big burly winter warmer. Very pleasantly suprised with this one. Teton is totally solid and tremendous value.

Tmoney99 (11376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, earthy hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

cards04 (2031) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a dark cola colour. Creamy fluffy tan head...very nice. Aromas are sweet cloying fruit..mostly citrus, some berries. Floar notes and malty notes too. Full, thick, and creamy mouthfeel. Perfect. Flavours are roasted malts, burnt sugar, sweet fruits, bitterness on the finish. Complex, and satisfying.

poisoneddwarf (1827) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2012
750 ml bottle. Bottled 8/23/12. Pours murky brown with a medium dark beige head that collapses after a few minutes; leaves nice lace. Aroma is strong in caramel; there’s also burnt toast, floral notes. It’s very aromatic but it doesn’t smell like my cup of tea--smells like a malt bomb. Taste is sweet and roasty with some bitterness in the finish. Taste is somewhat similar to Arrogant Bastard and other beers of that ilk. I’m getting strong anise in the lingering finish. Alcohol presence is strong--tastes much stronger than 7.5%. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation soft to medium. It’s a respectable brew, but not really my thing.
