Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2009
12 oz bottle from coldbrewky. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin head. The sweet roasted malt aroma first catches my attention and draws me in. Flavor is sugar, malt, and fruits. It has a slight bitterness at the end as well. I didnít notice the alcohol but I was already feeling pretty good by the time I had this one.

Pours to a very dark brown color and has an extremley hoppy smell. Poured to a medium brownish head and stayed for the entire driniking of the beer. A very smooth taste when first drinking but the aftertatse is of extreme bitterness. It was fairly heavy but very drinkable. I enjoyed it thouroughly.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep ruby red/brown color with a slightly off white head that settles to a film. Aroma is mostly malt, roasted malt/burnt caramel, some alcohol and a touch of hops. Taste carries some of the caramel/malt aroma with it. I get a little bit of a roasted malt taste as well. I think it could use a bit more body to it, it seems a little watery. Finish carries more of a pronounced roastedness to it.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2008
12 oz. bottle from a beer club. Deep red/brown with some opacity. Smallish head leaves minimal lacing. Mostly malts on the nose with some earthiness in there. This tastes like an amped up nut brown ale. It reminded me of Samuel Smiths nut brown, which I once enjoyed frequently, but canít seem to find anymore. This one is pretty decent.

Probably one of my favorite beers. Pours a deep brown/red color, head dissipates rather quickly. Big malt aroma/flavor with a hint of caramel and a nicely balanced hoppy finish. Very smooth, easily drinkable.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.
