Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
Bottled - first I missed it because of the ash cloud over Europe, but then I found it in London. A brown beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of alcohol as well as sweet and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, malt, roasted malt, hops, and alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

RBSG 2010 - Pours very dark amber and smells of rich malts and dark fruit. The flavor is predominately malt. It’s sweet with good dark fruit notes and some alcohol present, which is hard not to have at 13% abv. It’s a full bodied brew that I enjoyed very much.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Pours very dark, red hues in the light. Head starts out about a half inch then dies to almost nothing. I hate rating appearance unless it is worth it. Aromas of thick molasses,alcohol,figs,plum.,raisin and caramel. Taste is similar but for me way too sweet. Too much alcohol in the taste too. Lots of raisin and dark fruits. Some caramel and molasses. Long bitter burning finish. Good carbonation level.

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2011
22oz bottle from Pristine Liquors in Spring Hill, FL. Pours dark red-brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, booze, plums, dark fruit, mild bitterness, and lingering chocolate. Mild fruit and chocolate in the finish. Medium-bodied and a bit chocolatey, but aging nicely.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a relatively strong dark fruit note as well a chocolate and a bit of an alcohol note. The flavor has a decent amount of alcohol present, but it is accompanied by chocolate roasted malts and a hint of dark fruits.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
February 19, 2010 tasting with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. 22oz bottle courtesy of blankboy. Disclaimer: I find most of the He-brew beers boozy sugar bombs. Poured deep clear ruby with an average diminishing beige head. Smells a lot like a UK barleywine with a huge admixture of fruitiness - moderately boozy - pretty nice, actually. Sweet, fuity and "dark" tasting - almost like a sweet tawny port - lovely, really appealing to my palate. Sticky, thick and sweet mouthfeel, not too boozy in the finish ... mmmmmmmmm! One of the best by them, for me.

Nice dark roast coffee and hazelnut aroma. Coffee and rootbeer in the flavor with notes of black olives.

Ruby black color/ lasting tan head. Straw, molasses, dark fruit, chocolate aromas. medium bodied. Molasses, dark toast, dark pit fruit, caramel flavors, boozy warming finish.

daleharshman (882) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Bomber from Pacific Liquor in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, purchased about 15 months ago ($6.99). Pours an almost pitch black with one finger of light brown foam. Aroma of dark roasted malts, espresso, anise, toasted coconut, smoke, hints of dark fruit, and some booze at the end. Flavor is quite good with really rich chocolate / fudge standing out; also bourbon, tobacco, smoky leather, caramel, raisin, toasted marshmallow, and hints of sweet coffee. Complex with a light level of sweetness that does not distract. There is some detectable alcohol but generally the 13% is well concealed, rendering this readily drinkable. I’ve had the Eleven and Twelve, but this one is my favorite so far. Very well executed. (255, 458)

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bomber from Market of Choice. Dark brown pour with a moderate beige head and light lacing. Smells of raisins, caramel, molasses, a little booze. Lots of dark fruit in the flavor, along with some chocolate, molasses, a little pine hoppiness and some light heat. A tasty beer, I really enjoyed this one.
