BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught @ The Wharf Rat in Baltimore Brown amber, light head and lacing. Nose of caramel, nice and rich, some hops. It has that vegetal garbagey smell though. The flavor is a little sweet; fruity raisin

Cask at Max’s. Dark mahogany. Ruby around the edges. Slightly foamy tan head. Nose is nutty, flowery, light caramel and toasty malts. Taste is floral hops, burnt nuts, toasted malts, and caramel. Body is creamy and smooth but light. Finishes with sweet malts, lightly burnt caramel, flowery hops and some nuttiness.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
On cask at Columbia Firehouse. Served in a 3 Lions Pint Glass. Pour yields a dark brown brew that’s not at all transparent. Thin tan head with a bit of lacing. The nose brings some semi-sweet malt as well as a bit of caramel, brown sugar, and some dry earth. Almost woody. The taste is along similar lines with a bit of sweetness coming through from the malt, but then the backend is comprised of an earthy, woody presence that is oddly bitter and presents itself as almost tannic in nature. Drinkability suffers a bit because of this, though overall it wasn’t bad. Serving type: cask Reviewed on: 02-17-2011

I liked this one at first - up front, there is a nice crispness to the malt profile, and a bright fruitiness from the hops - then, through the middle, it starts to get a bit sweet, with notes of fruit, toffee, treacle - not bad, but getting a little less enjoyable - then, the alcohol comes on very strong, especially in the finish, leaving a lightly medicinal notes - starts strong, but disappoints in the end.

Tap. Thick lasting head on dark amber. Quiet scent. Flavour is strong alcohol, sweet malt and strongish hops. Alcohol and sweet toffee finish.

Cask at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a slightly ruby red color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some nutty character, with sweet malts. Flavor had toasted malts, sweet malt taste, nutty character. Enjoyable.

Aurelius (4106) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Candied, dark malty, acidic, moderately sweet. Finishes bitter and slightly salty. Some woodiness, some soapiness. Slightly chalky finish, which is bitter, but still acidic. Aroma was faint. Good but a bit off balance somehow. Dull chocolate in the finish.
