GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Pours midnight brown w/ a full semi creamy froth w/ long hang time. Aroma of sweet roasted pine. Full nectar w/ ample mellow effers. Big malted cocoa upfront accompanied by molasis and espresso. Huge gobs of resinated hops persist to fight their way thru the clumpy malt. Big asprin burn on the finish. Overall: Roasted sweet malt w/ a very strong hop profile. Will satisfy a big appitite.

Bottle. Pours with a generous tan head that lasts to the end. Very dark brown but not quite black in the glass. Aroma has a distinct chocolate character. Hops are apparent right away, and continue through the finish, with nice roasted malt characteristics to balance it out. Alcohol is well hidden. A nice brew, but not as "big" as I would have expected.

hopscotch (9112) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle... Very dark ale (ruby when held up to bright light) with a small, creamy, light brown head. Chocolaty, fruity nose with earthy hops and mild alcohol. The flavor is not overly hot despite its youth and high alcohol content. Medium to heavily bitter in a metallic, mineral way. Not a lot of residual sweetness. Almost full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, grassy finish.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2006
A direct pour yields a solid two-finger head of tan that sits solidly above a clear, deep dark brown body that shines ruby red with intense back lighting. Rich, complex dark caramel and dried fruit aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet with a smooth dry palate. Creamy and full bodied, with no hint as to the alcoholic content. Very nice brew.
