750 ml bottle; NOse of raisin pie, brown sugar, spices, and a tiny bit of funk; clear dark cherry brown with a big beige glass-lacing head; flavor is molasses, raisins, figs, nutmeg, and atiny bit of brett, but not much!

Pours cola brown with deep tan head. Great, sweet malt nose, with some dried fruit and molasses present. Definite raisin aroma there, but not overwhelming. Wow, the first sip is an explosion of complexities. Malt, natural unsweetened raisins, a hint of licorice, and a smooth alcohol warmth. Finishes with a mellow bitterness that dries the palate and prompts you to take another sip. I don’t think I’m sharing this one!

damn. when you’re bent on stoney chron, sunk into leather, head like a bowling ball..This thickness rectifies. Damp nose of must & grain alcohol. Bitter slapped intro, thick kumquat-rind sweetness laying atop. soaked fruits & raisins with bitter violations. Sit on your throne

GABF ’07. Pours hazy dark brown with an average, creamy, off-white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), light hops (grass), average yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of pears. Full bodied, oily texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

Courtesy of WeeHeavySD** Where do I start with this brew.The aromas coming up are sweet fruit like screaming at me and pulling me in. Pours a rich brown color with virtually no head.The flavors that came from this were ridiculous. Dark fruits, caramel and molasses and the alcohol was masked well.Finished smei, dry with a some sweetness.

750 from the LA Patron Saints Club. Lovely dark pour with a modest but lively head. Glints of ruby come through, and the nose is quite big and plummy, with dark fruits suggesting a grand cru. I suppose this bottle’s almost 6 months old, but I’m not getting any of the brett. Could be that the raisins are too strong - though I find them not too over the top, thankfully - but maybe this just needs more age. Quite solid, but a bit one-dimensional to me.

75 cL bottle, thanks to Bierkönig. Pours hazy and deep brown with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is dried fruity and malty. Flavour is a blend of malty sweetness and something beyond this (undefineable malty/herbal note). Slight herbal note with a minor acidity into the finish, a quite dry finish.

RBSG 07 Minneapolis Grand Tasting: Murky brown/ebony, light head and nice lacing. Nose of mint, cardamom and spicy yeast. The flavor is equally spicy with chewy malt, some cinnamon and nutmeg, really balanced but super spicy.
