mmmbeer (1287) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 1 pt. .9 oz bottle (from Liquid Solutions) served in shaker- poured a non transparent black when held to a light source with shades of dark brown, no carbonation, aroma of malt, 24hr pot coffee aroma (trust me, there is a difference), and bones. Hits the mouth with a very high medium body, the malt is just too overpowering, omg, OMG.... (shakes his head and says, "I GOT THIS"). Malt is on the high end when the soul of the brew comes out to play, hard in the middle, but still puts up a fight, finish lingers badly, and in the bad way, slapnuts. No heady words here, just that it could have been better. I picture me in a long forgotten rest way cabin, and I dreampt (sp? )I found this brew. Yeah, dream. Dream what could have been too little, too late for late for me...

nihtila (1279) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
6.12.2013. Tiheä vaaleanruskea vaahto, hieman samea, tummanruskea olut. Tuoksussa lievää paahdetta, karamellia, ruista, tuntuu myös alkoholin lämpöä. Pehmeä, hieman karamellisen makea, ruismaltainen, yrttinen, melko täyteläinen, lopussa havuista (katajaista, kuten etiketti sanoo?) katkeroa. Alkoholikin hieman lämmittää, mutta ei maistu. Melko vivahteikas.

Bendrixian (1255) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Malty, caramel and stewed fruit aroma with sweet fruity notes and fairly complex aroma that seems to get more fruity as it opens up. I like the way the brew also takes it time delivering all the flavours. Man, just impressed and this brew is a good time.

sthlm (1240) - Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2009
[Bottle, thanks CaptainCougar!] Pours reddish-amber with a beige head. Odd aroma, juniper, some sweet fruitiness, yeast, very bready. Taste has some decent bitterness with a lot of yeast, some identifiable notes that I will attribute to the juniper, and a good deal of malt on the finish. Good mouthfeel with a long finish. Not a bad beer, and very unique.
