asheft (2522) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2011
[bottle] Cereal grain, pumpernickel, pine and faint banana aroma. Hazy red-bronze under a lasting, thin, white cover. Blast of flavour: citrusy, spicy toffee and pumpernickel combined with bitter pine and sea salt. Bitterness is not assertive, which is good since the sweetness of this potent beer is subdued. No obvious alcohol. Very well balanced and not overpowering, despite the 10.1%. Medium body, moderate carbonation, almost clean finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Clear medium amber pour, dense off-white head. Slightly doughy, boozy aroma, kinda sweaty and figgy. Sugary honey start, a touch of dried fruit, kind of apricoty near the middle, finishes sugary. Kind of sweet and one dimensional.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear orange color with a small, foamy, off-white head. The nose has some light caramel and toasted malt notes, perhaps a bit of dark fruit in there. The flavor has a little west coast hop bitterness, plenty of caramel malt, some sort of odd woodiness, and an alcohol note that is a little obvious. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a medium, bitter yet slightly boozy finish. This one was just okay for me. The hops, malt, and alcohol didn’t quite seem to mesh like they should.
