Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2009
CPLYFO 750 ml bottle. Pours a nice deep coppery amber with a thin but lasting head. Aroma is big malts- toffee, caramel, some sharp fruitiness, with hints of earth leather, and good raisin and fig fruits as it warms a bit more. Big toffee, and smooth sweet malt flavor, figs, raisin, - fig jam almost, biscuit, and caramel, thins out a bit as it warms and some of the big malts turn to a slick sugary character- brown sugar, turbinado etc. Smooth enough but didn’t hold its big presence. Ok.

after4ever (5937) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Liquid Sunshine V. 750, capped. Great stuff! Crystal clear dark amber with bright caramel highlights. Big sweet fissy, plummy nose, maybe a little boozy. Creamy medium body, maybe a little sticky. Figs, plums, brown apples, and caramel on the mid-palate.

StefanSD (2015) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle at Toncatchers T3. Pours a light brown color with a thin wisp of a head. The aroma is sweet with pears and peat. The taste is nutty with hazelnuts and toffee. The palate was smooth. Overall: a very tasty brew but not a great one. If this was a bronze medal winner at GABF then the competition was apparently rather weak.
