nimbleprop (4809) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a translucent copper amber with some spitty, tan head. Nose is bad, no other way around it, burnt rubber, booze, heavy raisin, orange, juniper. Harsh. Flavor is nasty, more burnt rubber, raisin, booze, juniper, heavy soap. Caustic finish. Woof.

shaynsawchuk (459) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a khaki head of tight bubbles. Aromas of black cherry, dark caramel malt, Dr. Pepper, wood smoke, black bread and salty minerality. Unfortunately it borders on cloyingly sweet, only a hint of balancing from hop, smoke or alcohol. Full bodied and then some, moderate carbonation. Unique, but I’d split this 4 ways.

cfrancis (2324) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Pours brown black with a frothy beige velvet head. Aroma is smoked meat, roasted malts. Taste is light smoked meat and roasted malt. Slowly builds on the smoke which burns me but still a solid beer.

morri (198) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny light brown head. Semi-clear dark brown/red body. Aroma is very sweet, smoked ham, bubblegum, tobacco and avocado. Mostly sweet on the tongue. The alcohol is very well camouflaged considering its 11% ABV.

Metalchopz (2261) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a slight hazy copper colour with nice ruby highlights. Big frothy and creamy beige head with great retention and thick foamy-creamy lacing. Dark fruit aromas with the roasted malts and quite peaty. The taste is pretty sweet at first sip, but calms down a little and stays rich afterward. Dark fruits, peaty and then spices show up in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy, a little oily. Alcohol well-hidden, but brew is a little too sweet and powerful overall. Could not have another, right away.
