Beerdrinker79 (2033) - Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12 oz bottle- Pours brown to black with a nice two finger light tan head. Aroma is malt, peat, brown sugar. The taste is similar, caramel malts, peat, brown sugar, smooth and drinkable. Body is medium bit seems somewhat thin, carbonation is soft. Good.

Bottle. Nose is actually pretty strongly malty and almost boozy, though it doesn’t smell of any particular alcohol. I get some intense caramel in there with a hint of some toastiness in there. Taste is a little sweet and also very malty, with a little bit of grains in there. Very light, too.

Poured by the brewer @ Huck’s. No bottle date. Dark brown with a bit of light tan foam and this leaves some lace. Honestly, doesn’t have much aroma at all. No sweetness, slight caramels or herbal notes I usually get in the style. Flavor has standard toasty matls with a bit of herbal hops (a little too much here) and a weird, salinated finish. Meh, it’s okay. Serving type: bottle 03-26-2012

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Deep coppery amber, lively carbonation, large fluffy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft peat, ash, and bistuity malts.   A bit of charred wood too.   All there, but soft.   A little sweaty on the tongue, charred wood and ash, soft peat and biscuit.   All these are fairly light, and dimish fairly quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, leaning on the lighter side.   A little bit of medicinal biscuitiness comes out as it warms.   Not a big example, average, with a lighter flavor profile.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Pours amber brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of toffee, apple, sweet bready malt. Taste has a fruity apple and toasted malt sweetness with some nut. Maybe a little floral hop showing through, but mostly malt.

after4ever (7581) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2011
12 oz. Pours a crystal clear and very dark amber. Loose sudsy tan film. Plenty of webby lace. Deep caramel nose with some molasses showing. Unfortunately, there’s also a slight aluminum note. Creamy medium body with soft carb and tons of molasses, caramel, and brown bread on the mid-palate. Some smoky earth and peat as well. Long malty finish. Definitely a heavy malt delivery system.
