9th October 2008. GABF. Opaque black beer. Rich, fruity and spicy - lovely, but not quite as good as Eleven.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
On tap at The Rake, HogTownHarry visit May 2009. Very deep brown, almost black, thin tan head. Sweetish aroma Pretty good malt, nice bit of roasty toasty notes. I quite like it. It’s boozy, but fine, took me a bit of time to finish even a third of a pint.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a finger of khaki colored head on top of it. S: Smells pretty boozy right away. Sweet dark fruits are evident and there is a lot of sugar and different malt smells to this one. Quite a bit of chocolate, especially the bitter variety, and a touch of coffee. T: A very strong, bold flavor of chocolate, dark sugar, and dark fruits. Definitely some booze in there and some bready malts. The complexity of this recipe makes for sort of a muddled beer and flavor. M: Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation. O: Just too much going on and not really in a good way. It doesn’t quite mesh/meld together.

Bomber. Very dark brown color with a decent tan head. Aromas of treacle and dark roast malt. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is treacle, with some coffee, darker fruit and dark malt. There’s some slight heat in the finish. Pretty good stuff. Will there be a 13?

argo0 (12501) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2010
22oz bottle. Small brown head atop cola brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, chocolate, grapefruit, raisin, some plum, caramel, alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolate, raisin, grapefruit, plum, some vinous. Alcohol noticeable but fairly tame given the ABV. Sticky medium-full body. I had the 13 a few days ago and found it a boozy mess, yet this one was delicious. I wonder if the aging is what results in such different experiences, or if it’s simply the differences in the recipes.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquor. Poured dark brown color with an average fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate nutty malt, caremel and dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture with flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish and small alcohol burn of moderate to long duration. This is a solid brew.

bu11zeye (12367) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2009
(22oz. bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of pine, caramel, maple, raisins, plum, prune, toffee, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, vanilla, pine, toffee, caramel, raisins, brown sugar, and chocolate. Extremely complex and would be nice to see how it matures with some age.
