Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle from Brew Keeper. Poured clear reddish copper color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity and small malty aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Moderate to heavy fruity bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle… Dark mahogany ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. The nose offers a heaping helping of dates layered atop molasses and other dark fruits and malts. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and subdued carbonation. Perfectly balanced molasses and date essences. Minerally, malty, earthy finish. Thanks to darkguardian for popping the top on this one!

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle obtained from the brewpub. The best is the look: A big white bubbly head on a brown body. A lot of lace. Mouthfeel is a little light. Not significantly complex. Basically malty and drinkable. Some sugar.But not too sweet overall. Fairly boozy. Not much in aroma.

22 ounce bottle courtesy of dankman. Thanks! 2008 Vintage. Pours a clear red-orange color with a moderate sized tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee, nougat, chocolate, cocoa, faint cherries and leafy hops. Taste is caramel, toffee, cherries, bitter hops, cocoa powder and faint booze. Medium bodied. Just a bit underwhelming.
