Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On tap at Birch & Barley/Churchkey. Very light nose, considering. Mild malt sweetness, neutral fruit and a bit of hop flower. Alcohol sweetness. Coppery amber with mild haze, topped with huge pillowy creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with light-medium carbonation. Smooth. Starts with medium malt sweetness. Clean and not complex, with a bit of oak, cane sugar, raisin or fig, and alcohol sweetness. Clean finish with warming and nice raisin-sweet after - like rum raisin ice cream. Little bitterness.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
A: The pour is a medium amber color with a massive off-white head that settles down to a nice thin layer. S: Plenty of nice sugar aromas to this one. Dark candi sugar and caramel are the base with some dark fruits such as plums and perhaps blueberries. T: Nice and sweet, like you would expect. Candi sugar all the way with the same rich fruitiness as picked up in the nose. There is a mild spice ester character that goes wonderfully with a hint of chocolate. M: Medium in body with plenty of effervescence. The carbonation gives this one an almost creamy feel, but could be a bit more than necessary. D: Nothing wrong with this beer at all. I quite enjoyed this one, and wouldn’t mind having another bottle.

Sten (617) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2010
Red brown beer with a fluffy white-brownish head. Dry malty aroma. Acidic and sweet chocolate flavour but not overdone. Not Bad. (Bottle 33cl)

planky84 (1907) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Dark brown pour with a beige head which soon dissipates. Aromas of pear drops, caramel, malts, cinammon. Flavours of caramel, licorice, pears, mangoes, cocoa beans. Quite an oily texture. Very smooth and sweet. Good sweet, dark fruit laden finish.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2010
As the temperature settles, the aroma of the brown sugar and caramel is like a "blast in the face" (Matt Capone). After talking to Doctor Van Canaris from the brewery, I thoroughly enjoyed this Belgian style brown ale with smooth notes of almost brandy from the alcohol with a malty sweetness to settle on the palate.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours incredibly carbonated, turbid deep muddy brown w huge 4f off-khaki head. Nose is earthy walnutty malt, cola, cacao, funky, root beer. Tastes earthy, malty, nutty, with a dry overall mouthfeel, some unsweet cola and sassafras notes, and some funk. Good palate complexity. Ends bone dry like a dry red wine with more earthy and nutty notes.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours reddish copper with a massive beige head and a strange toffee-like aroma. There is a thick caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter finish.
