Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep clear garnet with thin mocha head. The aroma is pungent with bold dark fruity esters, some chemical alcohol notes, licorice and musty dewy fruitiness. The taste is as bold and sweet as the aroma with dark sugar coated fruitiness then becoming somewhat like red wine and tannin dryness. I also get a sugar porridge type sensation thatís mild and muted. Body seems really thin considering the level of sweetness in this beer.

Ughsmash (7248) - 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.

bb (7133) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle. Mahogony beer with a big tan head. Red wine, caramel, dark fruit aroma. Berry fruit, caramel flavor with light yeast. Medium-light body. Needs malt. Lingering sweet fruitiness that turns a bit sacharine.

MesandSim (7117) - 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.

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Pours dark brown with a massive tan head that doesnít last long. There is a skunky dark malt aroma and an even skunkier sour malt flavor. This doesnít taste like any other dubbel I have consumed, but I guess it is a reasonable alternative for those who require gluten-free beer.

500 ml bottle from the Bayou. Pours a wonderful picture; a deep ruby hue, very dark with a large light brown head. The aroma though was initially off-putting; it reminded me of rubber cement, or some odd oily and chemical like notes. The flavor was similar; a hot mess of glue and alcohol. But somehow, this beer wasnít so bad. Some fruity notes, sorghum (which produces much of the glue-like flavor). Not bad, weird and not my thing though.

Ernest (6514) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), with notes of brown sugar and overripe banana. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Could pass as a real brown ale, though certainly not a great one.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Big brown head does not last. Dark red barely translucent body. Sweetish aroma with intense pine needle character and notes of apple and alcohol. Taste is sweet pine needles with notes of chocolate and earth. Carbonates in the mouth. Some alcohol is noticeable. Dry pine needle aftertaste. Quite good, but nothing too special. (0.33l bottle.)

scared, maybe.. i bought this 8 months ago and have been dreading this since i had the Quest.. . Big meaty salty sherry like aromas, not a good start, maybe some very faint chocolate.. . low head on the pour, then to just a bubbling of head .. . tastes like night train, but thicker and fizzier in the mouth!! .. fuckin gross shit! .. . cola, kool-aid grape, and night train flavours .. . you need either a bite plate, a wad of leather and a lighter or a piece of cheese to cover the flavour just to get through this... i hate this beer, and i hate you... even for gluten free this is a mess.. i am depressed now, i have a headache now, all my senses have been damaged!! ... .. this is worse than tori spellings acting, but her ass is nice...and this beer doesnít have an ass, ..another knock!!
