Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a red-amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee with some earthy and dirty hops. The flavor is toffee, earthy hops and some fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but nothing special.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Clear brown with a small white head. Nose is earthy, tobacco and horse. Taste is very malty that’s, sweet, woody, maybe a bit nutty and also… well… “hairy”!?! Something about the taste reminded me of wet fur or something of that nature. Decent beer but I like my beer like I like my women, not too hairy.

Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Garnet color with huge head and decent foamy retention. Nose of caramel, toffee and light chocolate notes. Flavor is toasted grain, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light dark fruit, mild hop bitterness on the finish with only a hint of alcohol. Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Very nice brew.

berkshirejohn (5824) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. Chestnut brown with a thin beige head; spicy malt aroma; some purple fruit from the roasted malts, and some powdered chocolate as well; and then a dry, nutty, finish. Not really a recognisable English style, but rather pleasant.

Patrickctenchi (5786) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle: Pours nearly black with a short, dark tan head. Chocolate, wood, dark fruit aroma. Taste is coffee, chocolate, malt.... Earthy, minimal bittering. A very nicely done ale.

kramer (5760) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours into pint glass with an average head, fizzy and off-white. Body is clear and brownish ruby colored. Aroma is pleasing with some floral hop notes. The flavor is good malty with a decent hop finish. Largest problem is the mouthfeel for me, kind of fizzy and thin. Surprised to learn this is 7%, wouldn’t have guessed over 5%. In all a decent beer but isn’t something to expend alot of effort to track down.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low I’ve had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.
