Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Lightly hazy dark copper pour covered by an irregular and small white head. Sandy and lightly earthy nose with a pleasantly minty hop twist that contrast with the toasty and biscuity malts whose sweetness escapes the hops’ radar. Medium bodied, moderately high carbonation. Good.

Braudog (6025) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle: Poured a red-orange shininess with barely a head. The aroma is a musty fruit, the flavor leaning more to a very sweet malt and a mushy earthy finish. The body is lighter than the muddy flavor profile would suggest. , but this is a hearty and flavorful English ale. (#3048, 8/3/2007)

ManVsBeer (5971) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Copper-brown in colour with a strong aftertaste, although the strength is hidden somewhat by the fruity sweet flavours which are also evident in its aroma.

Sigmund (5803) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2006
500 ml brown bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.8%. Reddish amber to brown colour, low off-white head. Minimal carbonation, nearly flat. Moderate but nice aroma of caramel, toffee, berries and dried fruits, with some oak in the background. Flavour has plenty of caramel, and a substantial bitterness in the finish and aftertaste, and a sweetish reminder of the relatively high ABV, but little else than that. Not an easy-drinking ale this one, and not particularly interesting either. Still better than many run-of-the-mill ales.

TheBeerGod (5598) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Copper to near dark brown pour. Very murky. Small random bubbles gathered together on the right side of the glass. Nose is caramel, sweet malts, flowery hops and apple skins. Taste is hoppy and floral with more apple skins, soft caramel and sweet malts. Very bitter taste and lingering bitterness throughout. Body is soft and light-medium. Carbonation is there but seemingly faded. Ends with more caramel, sweet malts, apple, floral hops and some earthy hops. More bitterness.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
From the bottle this pours a hazy brownish amber body with a small off-white head that produces spotty lacing. The aroma has caramel, orchard fruit, butterscotch, and a soft floral/herbal bitterness. Creamy in the mouth, the caramel and butterscotch are moderately sweet, just at a level to deal with the steady hoppy bitterness. Nice mildly bitter finish, making this a pleasantly sessionable ale.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber body with a quick diminishing off white head. Nose of fruity esters, apples, toffee, and hints of caramel. Taste is similar has a full body with a mild bitter finish. Floral accents and a hint of nuttiness.

Poured a light brown color with an off white head. Aroma was dried fruits and some caramel and biscuts. Flavor was actually alot fuller than I had expected, nice mleding of sweet malts and some hop bittering and biscut flavors.
