DocLock (8386) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy deep coppery pour with aroma of caramel malt, fruit, some vinous notes, plus some funky cabernet notes. Tastes fruity, with caramel malt, vinous, nutty, and some cognac notes. The hops and spice appeared at mid-palate, and blended well with the flavor.

Quack-Duck (8383) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2012
bottle from saveur-biere. Hazy amber-golden colour, mid-sized off-white head. Slightly fruity with dusty hops, caramel and very shy hints of vegetables.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2004
Slighty hazy red amber body, with a good velvety off white head. Slight barnyardy floral aroma? Bit tart and teasty at times with some nice malt in it and some acidity. Intriguing. Deceptively high alcohol content.

rosenbergh (8288) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB 26/12/14. From saveur-biere.com.
My advent calender door number 15 gave me this one. It’s dark mahogany coloured with a big light tan head. Sweet dark fruits, spices and dry maltiness. Very nice. The flavour is also quite yummy with dark fruits, some sweetness, spices, dry woody malt and mild alcohol.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2008
Beautiful bright hazy amber orange, thin skim of a head that vanishes almost before the first sip. Aroma of distinct soft caramel and candied orange. Rich caramel flavour, orange brandy. The finish is dry, medium bitterness, and surprisingly a little tart.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Clear darjk amber body. Fruity and yet spicy dry barley malt aroma. Smooth and creamy nuts and spices mild flavor. A touch of pepper as well.

Ok aroma and flavor. Unfortunately it disapears quickly.

KyotoLefty (7337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2010
75 cl bottle at Le Sous-Bock. Shared with Sakiko. Medium brown, a bit cloudy, fine, medium head. Chocolate, nutty aroma, with caramel and dried fruit, like prunes. Rich, sweet, amber malt, caramel, chocolate, plums and raisins. A dubbel, basically. Alcohol not very noticeable. High carbonation. Earthy, slightly funky feel to balance, with a touch of salty minerals. Not at all disappointing.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2007
750mL bottle, BB 4/25/07. Poured clear, medium sparkly orange/amber with a well-formed cap of white head. The aroma picked up spicy darker fruits, dusty notes of mild oxidation, and an almost vinegary tartness. The flavor had a soft lemon and vinegary tartness throughout with sweet dark fruits and toffee across the middle.. dry peppery and floral notes hit on the finish.. just a bit too tart, perhaps because this was a little old.. still tasty, though. Medium-bodied with tartness beating out the sweet stuff.. lemony finish. I’d drink this again.

bb (7305) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber beer with a dark cream colored head. Malt, yeast, and light spice aroma. Caramel and light earthy flavor with light spice and light yeast. Medium bodied. Yeast lingers with malt/caramel, light dried fruit, and light earth.
