bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma of malt, light stone fruit, perhaps grass. Med body. Flavor is chocolate, moving on to light fruits with something like Earl Grey grass. Hay. Somewhat uncommon flavor here. Drinks nicely. Keep thinking Earl Grey. It’s fairly dry, and towards astringent.

Tmoney99 (10958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a brown head. Caramel, slight soy sauce, chocolate, a bit metallic aroma. Some more metal in the mouth. Slightly charred, burnt sugar / caramel, and doughy flavor. A hint of coffee. Moderate bitterness. Kind of bland. Not good.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with amber tints and a small sized off white head. Aromas of potted soil, some fruitiness, and toasted caramel. Tastes of chocolate, lighter fruitiness, and lighter roast.

Drake (8700) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle, 12/5/13. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of dark malts and tart stone fruits. The taste is chocolate malts, clay and mild fruits. Thin and watery. Meh.

GT2 (8682) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
355mL from a 24 pack. Yes, I bought it for my father in law, lover of Newcastle. Clear, deep ruby pour, white to light beige foam with good lacing and nicer than expected head formation. Nose is Worcestershire sauce, red apple, soy sauce, metallic penny, heavy sugar. Taste is thin, soapy, suddy, pretty bland with no roast. Hints of red apple, biting soapy bitterness. Strange beer.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy chestnut with 2-finger tan head. Nose is nuts, cacao, caramel, hops. Tastes nutty, with some caramel, cacao, and a medium to light finish with light palate heft. Like an overly perfumed crack whore, this one looks good, smells much better than it tastes, and sucks, but not unless you pay for it first.

shrubber85 (7864) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. Light coffee, chocolate, and raisin malt aroma. Dark brown with nice head. Nutty chocolate malt and light herbal flavor. Body on the lighter side. A nice Mild - really wish Milds would gain more of a foothold in the states.

Ibrew2or3 (7050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of a sweet trade bonus from GT2, pours with a clear amber to deep ruby red body that support a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel malts, some roasted malts, earthy tobacco notes and a mineral water sensation nuanced by faint sweet dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a mix of roasted malts, tobacco earthiness and caramel malts. It picks up vague hop bitterness and a mineral note into the finish. Pretty nice. I love the earthy tobacco note that helps create more depth and interest.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
DuffMan (6969) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Medium brown, medium off white head. Low aroma of cocoa and tea. Flavour is dry cocoa and caramel, insipid and watery. A lackluster, thin mild ale.
