Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing the bottle! Poured a clear medium toffee with a light beige ring for head. Medium caramel, wintry spices, toffee, cocoa powder, and baby powder provide an odd blend in the nose. Flavor was heavier, and full of caramel and toffee maltage... baby powder, powdered sugar, nutmeg, and brown sugar provided somewhat complimentary spicage. Somehow watery on the palate with sharp, sticky sweet malts and a hint of alcohol. Not-too-drinkable... but OK.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent orange amber with an average off white creamy head. Aroma of nutmeg, pie crust, vanilla and a lot of various spices. Flavors of the same with tons of nutmeg/vanilla that was covering up any malt/hop presence.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Bottle... Murky, deep, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Malty, earthy nose with a boatload of toffee and a trace of Marciano cherry. Aged or stale hop flavor with subtle vanilla and cinnamon. No intensity, but nice. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes minerally and slightly Flemish. Kudos to boboski for bringing this one down from Orlando!

Bottle from J Emerson. Copper with nice head and lacing. Smells like raisin bread and maybe a little like play doh. Very sweet, almost like cream soda. Creamy bodied, too. A little bitter/sour creeps in at the end.
