3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 750ml bottle. Dark dark brown. Huge nose of heavy quad clove and plum and brown sugar yeast with a dose of alcohol thrown in the mix as well. Flavor up front is smoke, some sweet fruity char and then some blackberry and wood, sweet on the back but not overly sweet, and finishing with a hit of alcohol. The blackberry and black cherry fruit note is probably the nicest feature of this beer.

Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 6-3-7-3-13=32
Black color with brown hue. Good body structure, well mixed flavors, but nothing exceptional, some caramel, light chocolate, very light roasted malt…

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2009
750mL bottle. Poured a highly-viscous, murky deep brown with very little carbonation evident. The aroma picked up a base of molasses, dark chocolate, and black patent maltage surrounded by spicy, fruity, Belgian-inspired yeast and darker spices.. a bit of soy impression on the back.. a touch brash at first, but it came together when given a chance to breathe. The flavor found soy and licorice at the core with dried cocoa and sticky black patent sweetness around.. warm spices and tart fruity character around.. a touch of oxidation hit on the back. Medium-plus bodied with very low carbonation.. tart and spicy notes accented decently, but it wasn’t all that enjoyable.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2008
750ml bottle cellared for about 7 months. Dark brown pour, nearly opaque in the glass with a medium head. Nice Lace.
Aroma was a mix of chocolate, roasted malts, yeast, prunes and peppery spices. Alcohol is well covered. Medium-thin body. Spicy aftertaste. This one might give you heartburn if you drink too much in a sitting.

Lebkuchen-Geruch. Süßer Beginn mit Kräuternoten, hefig, etwas oxidiert. Nicht ganz rund, zuckrig, röstig, deutliche Holznoten. Zum Ende hintergründig alkoholisch, etwas Vanille. /10/9/9/9/9
