JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from trade with the_lutheran. Pours a mahogany color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and spices. I detect several different fruits such as apple and raisins. Taste is nutty and semi sweet but nicely balanced out with hop goodness. Finishes with a malty touch. Nice brew!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle:   Burnt caramel in color, thin sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Strong biscuity nose, malty, very pale caramel.   Heavy biscuity flavors on the tongue, malty, slight cereal.   Has a slight peat aspect to it as well.   Backside is mealy and biscuity.   This is one malt oriented brew!   Very much a solid example of an English Strong Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Having had the barrel aged version I can say that I prefer that one, however this one reveals more of the underlying flavors that were a bit subtle in that other version.   The 8% ABV is well hidden.   Comes across to me as a solid example of a nice malty/mealy/peaty English type Strong Ale.   Good stuff!   Thanks Bill for the bottle!

Beerenberger (1561) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
The aroma is malt forward with notes of toasted malts, caramel, and nuts. A dark clear garnet-brown hue with a very thin tan head, which quickly forms a ring, and minimal lacing. The taste is surprisingly rich; not robust, but very rewarding. Roasted malts, toffee, caramel, with hints of nuts. There is a slight hoppy/peppery finish. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer and would drink it again - winter or not.

Pours dark brown with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toasted nuts. Flavor similar to aroma with emphasis on the toasted nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a nice fruitiness mixed with coffee notes. Has a nice black body with minimal head. Flavour is sweet cocoas and coffee with a hint of apple. Smooth mouthfeel. It’s a fine and unique stout.

Nice. Malty and fair if seriously non-west-coast hop profile. Good beer, nothing wrong with it, perhaps a tad heavy on carbonation - wouild rate higher, but it’s just not exactly my style nor what I’m in the mood for rihgt now. (in the mood for a bit more hops, other than that I’m just being evil)
