11/7/2013. 22 oz. bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Sweet malty aromas with dark fruit and spices. Buttery texture with alcohol present. Flavors of dark fruit such as cherries. A hint of sourness. Carbonation is medium-high and the finish is slightly sweet. Interesting brew.

Straight from the traded bottle, post-run, pushing Harper in her swing. Yep, good parenting. Anyway the beer: awesome Belgian style with dark fruit, brown sugar and a little booze. Tended to the quad side of the house. Mighty fine. I guess if you hop the pole (so to speak) Alaska is pretty close to Belgium.

Courtesy of to tderoeck. Thx! 650 ml. bottle sampled during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Approximately 1 year old. Pours dark brown with a tanned head. Smells of brambleberry jelly, sticky dark malts, toffee, molasses, chocolate, sweet herbs. Taste is sweet brambleberries, light blueberries, light molasses, thick malts, herbs, sweet berries, brown sugar, sweet, chocolate, bit cloying, syrupy, dark fruits, faint liquorish vanishing. Very thick creamy malt body. Very nice, I was expecting a touch more from these guys to be honest given the reputation & the previous brew I tried from them.

Bottle - Brown sugar, molasses, chocolate, prunes, booze and other dark fruits. Jet black with a rich brown head. So much brown sugar and booze, it is a bit too much for me. I would have preferred a bit better rounded with some more fruit in the taste. To syrupy.

Draft, Aroma of raisins, prunes maybe. Taste dark fruit, prunes and sweet. I wish it had a little more carbonation, I wonder if it has been on tap for awhile. Still, nice taste and gives a nice buzz. Good beer

Bomber split with wife for my AK tick. Ak,Ak, what yah say? Pours deep amber, but not black, ruby edges. Plums, cherrys on the nose. This theme continues with a dull alchohol burn in the mouth. The body stands up, the. The booze bitch slaps. This one is HOT! Crank up the AC.
