hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle... Very dark brew (hazy orange when held up to light) with a small, fizzy, white head. Smells like sake and dark fruit. Light-bodied with extremely fizzy carbonation. Tastes like bad, cloyingly sweet sake. Finishes sweet and watery.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
500 mL bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark ruby tinted brown color with a large brown frothy head. Aroma of grainy malts, brown sugar and a tart note. Really a faint aroma. Taste is tart cherries, cola, grain, caramel, leafy notes. Medium bodied. A decent effort, especially considering this is gluten free, but as far as dubbels go, this sucks.

jtclockwork (8571) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2010
Initial wetness morphs into sour mash with an almost vomit-inducing finish. Very nasty stuff. Rated 4/5/10

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Pouring at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. The aroma is quite sweet and plummy. Lots of plums and a bit of sweet rummy flavour. Thereís a bit of light molasses. The yeast has a lovely bit of estery character as well. Pretty solid actually.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Sample at AleFest Columbus (06/27/09): The beer pours a deep mahogany color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and spice. Medium body with flavors of almost sour fruit and sherry, plus some off spices. The finish is tart fruit with a spice and yeast aftertaste. Not very enjoyable overall.

Rune (8173) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2007
330ml bottle celebrating that the Hammers still have a premiership status! This double dark beer pours a deep mahogany red-tinged body supported by a beige, frothy head with lots of bubbles (Iím forever blowing bubbles in the air!) and some lacing. Sweet rummy aroma. Rich taste of dark berries and fruits (plums and prunes) - almost vinous. A spicy touch towards the end. Perhaps a bit too sweet and one-dimensional. Medium bodied and easy to drink (13.05.2007).

Clear very dark red almost black color, smallish tan head. Coca-Cola, red berries, sweet, acidic, lactic, glue scent. Acidic, red berries, tart, short taste. Medium mouthfeel, very low bitteerness.

crossovert (7561) - Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Not the worst gluten free beer but there isnít anything too tasty about this one. Thin with some dark fruit notes.

Ughsmash (7153) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Bottled, BB 5/4/09. Poured cloudy deep brown with plenty of sediment and a fizzy cap of tan head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate, earth, and raisiny notes along with a dark-sugary funk that wasnít exactly vegetal, but it was weird. The flavor opened with sour and tangy vegetal character with brown sugar, raisins, and caramel following.. heat picked up on the back-end, amplifying raisiny sweetness and bizarre sour maltage. Medium-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. grainy and sweet with a scratchy flow.. didnít feel good or taste very good.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2007
A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Hard liquor aroma. Almost offensive, but bittersweet. So brightly red and black with a nice lacing. Flavour again is too too bitter.
