Thanks to drowland for the share at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting. Pours dark red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is dark chocolate, cocoa, slight fruit, nuts, and an interesting background sweetness. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a lot of porter quality to this one. Medium bodied and decent overall.

Bottle (dregs) … Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” Tasting… Hazy brown ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose offers caramel and toasted nuts – almonds and pistachios. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and nearly expired carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty-sweet followed by mild acidity. Lengthy, lightly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of drowland. Thanks, Danny!

Pours a hazy brown color with a light brown head. Aroma is honey, toast, caramel, brown sugar, fruit, roast, coffee, and a touch of floral hops. Flavor is honey, toast, chocolate, roast, some coffee, and a light brown sugar finish.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2010
On tap at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakecreek and poured into a Trappist-style glass, this seemed somewhat misnamed as a winter warmer. It has little in common with the flat, fruitcake-ish tastes that you get from, say, Sammy Smith’s annual offering of the same name. Instead, it reeks of heavy roast aromas and flavors: molasses, dark chocolate, hints of espresso. All of these met just enough hops to avoid cloying your throat, making this a nice sipper hat evoked a chocolate stout.

12 oz bottle from Ben. Deep brown colored pour with a fluffy tan head. Aroma and taste is molasses, chocolate and a slight roasted coffee note. Finish is some roastiness and caramel.

When it’s poured it looks like a stout, something like guiness. The head isn’t as thick though. Very smooth and tastes very well. You can tell it has been aged in bourbon barrels with the mild after taste. It does not have an over powering alcohol taste at all. Very good beer.

Sammer (1054) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Dark brown pour from bottle. Thin head. Aroma is light smoke and molasses. Taste is malty, with notes of coffee and burnt wood. Smooth finish. Nice.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2010
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours dark brown to black with an offf-white head. Nose is spices - allspice and nutmeg. Taste is coffee, spices and roast malt. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly chalky and dry. While good in small quantities, it was hard to finish a whole pint.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark amber with nice off white head. Lacing is pretty good. Nice spicey aromas, hint of sweetness and lots of roast, chocolate, and whiskey notes. Best brew I’ve had from Rahr.

dyetube (1188) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2010
This beer pours a very deep amber/ almost black with a medium tan head. The aromas are bourbon, chocolate and a touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is sweet and watery. This was a great beer! Can’t wait to have another! Cheers!
