hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle… Clear dark brown ale with no head. The aromatics are of fudge and vanilla with a pinch of brown sugar. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced. Tree nuts and caramel with light milk chocolate. Rich mocha finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2011
250 ml bottle shared by GT2: Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a thin spotty-lacing ring of tan head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and chocolate nose. Starts with rich chewy dark malty sweetness with some plum and raisin flavors before a toasty dark chocolate finish with a touch of smoke. Good complexity and drinkability.

50belair (2240) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Thanks to Darkguardian for sharing this one. Big coco puff nose. Dark brown pour with tan head. Lots of deep roasty malts, chocolate, and caramel notes.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - SEP 7, 2011
Pours an almost black color with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, liqourice, some coffee and dried fruits - a bit vinous. Flavour of coffee, liqourice and dried fruits (raisins, plums). Rather vinous feel to it, just slightly sweet. Mediumbodied with soft carbonation. Tasty! Rather "aged" feeling.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2011
25cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Brune foncée, beige. Arôme offre une belle note de soja montrant un peu d’age. Au palais, malt chocolaté sec, avec pas mal de caramel, sucre lactose et caramel brulé. Toffee et biscuité le tout sur un fini légèrement houblonné laissant une pointe d’amertume. Le niveau alcool reste présent sans être de trop, mais la bière reste néanmoins bien épaisse au palais.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2011
Kolsvart, lätt oljig vätska med lågt beige skum. Doft av bränt socker, svartvinbärssaft, kaffe och choklad. Ganska bränd smak i hela registret men i många finstämda nyanser. Bränt socker, mycket kaffe, soya, förvånansvärt lätt kropp vilket mest känns positivt, lätt efterbeska. En lite förbryllande upplevelse. Känns inte riktigt färdig på något sätt.

GT2 (8434) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
250mL courtesy of omhper! The pour is a pretty tepid, deep ruby black with rings of bubbles on the edge of the Hair of the Dog tasting glass. Nose is huge black cherries, sweet maple, small tawny port notes, small umami/savory/soy character. Almost like a Belgian quad or Gouden Carolus Noel nose. No coffee, roast, cocoa. Taste Is sweet black cherry, cherry licorice, small amounts of ash. But still comes across as very Belgian strong like with massive dark fruits (prunes, dates). A little sweet for porter. Could use some bitterness. Richer palate. Works well as a dessert beer.

BeerandBlues2 (9690) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle shared by GT2. Pours black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, chocolate, roast), light smoke and oak, prunes and dates with light earthiness. Flavor is dark roasted malt, light chocolate and prunes, light bitterness with some oak notes and a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, in turn courtesy of omhper, thank you both! Clear dark brown, no head or lacing to speak of. Very subtle coffee aroma with a slight edge of chocolate. Taste is overripe plums, port wine. Nice stuff.
