Poured from bottle at Andy's pad. Brownish red pour. Grape, sour, fruity, skunky taste. Hate the style. It's ok

Glass bottle. Lovely dark ruby pour with creamy beige head. Appearance is a perfect 5 out of 5. Aroma is also very nice: dates, raisins, plum, homemade bread, waffles. Very nice. Strong presence of raisins, plum, and bready yeast. What trips this up is the high alcohol content. Itís detectable and the burn interferes with the dark rose family fruits it otherwise exhibits. It needs to be toned down to about 6%. Otherwise itís like drinking a glass of bread with fruit and nuts in it. Otherwise itís very nice.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a creamy toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and darker fruits with accents of earth and peppery yeast.. on the sweet side, but it smelled really tasty! The flavor found vanilla, licorice, and dark fruit at the core with clove and fruity yeast laced throughout.. sweet, malty finish. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. sweet for the style.. very drinkable overall, and Iíd have another.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2013
12 bottle. Nice ruby-brown, unfiltered body. Thin, glass rimming beige head. Really pleasant, pulls it off rather well. Pronounced yeast tones..raisin, plum...balanced and complemented by the chocolate malt, maybe candi sugar tones. At 7.5% itís not overbearing, which really works well here. Drinkable, and while sweet and full bodied, remains balanced and refreshing.

Courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a small head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. Malty flavor, with light dry chocolate.

From notes. Screw City Beer Fest. Got this bad boy from a growler from Potosi. Damn good beer. Milk and dark chocolate with a slight hint of coffee and a decent backbone of Trappist yeast. I would love to try this one again.

On tap at the Free House - Pours mahogany with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is sweet, with candi sugar, dark fruit, sweet yeasty bread, and a hint of spice. Taste is about the same, sweet but not overbearing, with all sorts of fruity flavors. Sweet bready malt and the same candi sugar. Drank a full pour, but the sweetness became a bit distracting by the end. Slick and viscous, with medium heft.
