bhensonb (14161) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Medium malty aroma. Something like caramel. Ruby toned, dark brown color with a beige head that was respectable. Thin to medium bodied. Near creamy carbonation. Something of plum pit and brown sugar. A bit tangy. Nearly astringent finish. Not a great deal of hop. A suggestion of that sour note found in most Siletz presentations. Mouth tends to pucker a bit. Pretty drinkable.

jcwattsrugger (12198) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2007
on tap-pours a light tan head that laces and dark copper color. Aroma is very faint sweet. Taste is medium malt-caramel, secondary sugar, yeast, faint spice. A very tame, malty interpretation of the style(Oh, it’s not a double/Dubbel, it’s an American Strong Ale that’s very tame).

Bottle at Madsberg 2008 Tasting. Pours deep red with a small, creamy, off-white, film head. Aroma has fine caramel, lots of hops. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet, lots of caramel and sugar. Fair amount of bitterness in the finish, but it should have been less sweet and cloying.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thin and foamy beige head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Light grassy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of malt, yeast and hops. Some fruity flavors are present as well. The finish is sweet caramel and malt at first with a short light hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
