PorterPounder (7315) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle - part of a Spring Mixed 12 pack. Darkish copper pour with a light off-white head. Neutral aroma with just a hint of nuttiness and some roasted malt. Subtly sweet flavor with some toasted bread notes, some nuts, a bit of muted citrus, but overall a bit "mushy" and damp. Mouthfeel, rather plain.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma is vegetal, grainy and burnt -- I’m not liking it. Flavour is also vegetal and grainy along with sweet malt and a hint of nuts. Light to average bodied. It’s so "blah" and "meh".

Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Nutty with sweet caramel like malts. Rather flat at finish accented by some herbal citric notes.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a stringy-lacing froth of light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty nutty malts with a touch of caramel toffee and some noble hops. Has pretty decent body and carbonation for the style with some toasty pale malts and light sweetness fairly well balanced with grassy hop bitterness and floral character before a drier, bready finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable, but could use a touch more sweetness.

Strykzone (6718) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2010
The only new stuff at my local beer store. This beer pours a clear caramel with a thick one finger head. Nice lacing. A nice aroma is malty and smoky. Flavors of dry malt and tart hops. Some applesauce, earth. The hops just don’ work with the malt base.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel with a light fruity undertone. The flavor was tangy, sweet and faintly bitter with light notes of nut, caramel and fruit and a hint of smoke. Medium finish and medium body. Pleasant.
