Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JAN 3, 2014
Pours a really dark brown colour with a big frothy tan head. Aroma of dates, prunes, caramel, candy, and even apples. Taste is sweet with a slight bitter kick in the finish, nothing outstanding about it though. Medium bodied, thinner on the palate, somewhat under carbonated in my opinion. Overall a nice beer, but I was expecting more.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Rated on 02-23-2013 at RBWG. This corked and caged bottled beer is courtesy of thedm and myself. This pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, orange brown transparent body, no visible carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is dark fruity, brown sugar, caramel malt, toffee, and semi-sweet. The flavor is dark fruits, caramel malt, toffee, metallic, and sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth and a bit oily. This beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer with a nice flavor and worth trying.

AirForceHops (3531) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2014
750 ml bottle encase in a aluminum tin. Purchased at Georgio’s Liquors about a year ago for 18.99!!! Dark, deep brown that I can tell is brown when held to the sunlight. Aroma is plums, dates and candi sugar, tones of yeast.

The flavor starts with a blast of Belgian candi sugar and transitions into plums, figs, toffee and dark toasted grain. The finish is sweet and sugary. The alcohol is well hidden with a milder carbonation level. Overall it’s a very nice drinker but not really worth the hefty price tag.
