Braudog (5966) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2006
I paid $5.99 for this bottle and I think it’s a bit old ... it poure with a high amount of chunky sediment in the deep brown beer with a water foam head. Surprisingly fruity nose. The flavor is also roundly fruity ... grape, apple, pear maybe. Tangy finish with a hint of bark.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Cask @ NERAX 06. Pours a golden clear color with a white fizzy head. Nose is lightly hoppy and sweet. Taste is pure butterscotch with some light caramel and little bits of hop notes here and there.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 24, 2006
Initial nose of alcohol, later burnt caramel and flowers. The brew pours a hazy dark amber with honey highlights. The smallish frothy off white head is mostly diminishing with faint lace. The brew starts with a huge roasted malt front, that eases into a finish with caramel quality. The body is medium, dry, and soft.

Palidor19 (3040) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2007 At first pour it had a deep aroma of grass and some floral scents. Sadly it smelled better than it tastes, A tad on the thin side with a respectable amount of malts and very definite hoppy flavor. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 1. Cask Stillage at the Metropolitan Cathedral Crypt, Liverpool 22/02/2001 Sharp on the palate. Woody aroma. Pleasant aftertaste. 2. Cask Handpump at the Windsor Tavern, Partick 03/12/2007 Slightly sweet aroma. Small white head. Golden coloured hoppy and a little sweet on the palate with a crisp and bitter malt finish.

muzzlehatch (4422) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 3, 2006
500 ml bottle. Very dark, nearly opaque walnut-brown, thick head settles to a thick ring with lots of tan lace...very sweet aroma, caramel/brown sugar, raisins, vanilla, light sweet smokiness...body is surprisingly dry, rather mild (almost bland) flavored at first just out of the cellar, but opening up a bit more soon with some nice medium roast, nuts, restrained bitter chocolate, and like its big brother Blackfriar, lots of finishing character. Solid.

Nekronos (3738) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Caks conditioned one. It was nice, not strong and very drinkable, although a little booring after a while. It is hoppy.

(Bottle) Pours a deep amber body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of breadiness, nuts, and toffee. Flavor of caramel and toasted malt. Clean, refreshing and very drinkable.
