mbgrayson (520) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Pours brownish red, with a tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malty and rich. Taste is not as good; kind of blunt and not smooth. Flavor doesn’t fit together well. This beer is not one that I would have again.

(bottle) deep brown with very little head. Bready malt aroma. Flavor is sweetish bready dark malt.

Pailhead (4607) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of toffee, fruit, and light nuts. It pours a transparent orangish-brown sith a two fingers off white head that leaves behind some sporadic webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with toffee and light fruit. The finish has light-moderate nuts and light tootsie roll notes. It has mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall, flavor is solid but mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nuts, husks, grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal and rotten fruit. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Ugh. As with the other two beers I’ve had from this brewer, this just plain sucks. Dirty, metallic, poor mouthfeel, and really clunky. Drain pour.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma: plenty of chocolate in there. Mild soft nose, bit grainy soft barley feel. 6+
Appearance: copper-red brown with large fine creamy top. Thick, dense, presentable. Neat lace. 4+
Palate / Taste: medium light bodied. Very soft with gentle carbonation. Creamy mild chocolate with chewy texture. Too soft, buttery like feel.

HopTsing (403) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Aroma was kind odf weak. Mostly malty. Light head that didn’t linger very long. It’s color was dark amber, reminding me of Dos Equis. It felt pretty good I guess due to all the malt, but wasn’t one of my favorite German lagers. Wish I had a Spaten.

tia (852) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle. Brown with thin head. Smells like tea and raisin bread. Tastes fairly malty with clinging sweetness. Not my favorite...

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 13/20
obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Aroma is dried leaves and tea with elderberry accents. Clear rust, medium yellow head. Strong tea flavor, astringent. Elderberry is ever present. Mouthfeel is fizzy. This isn’t one of my favorite styles, but this one had personality. There are other detractors but at least this somewhat distinctive.

Ratman197 (9458) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2012
500 ml bottle poured a clear brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of toasted malt, carmel, molases, raisin and light spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt, molasses and fruittiness with a crisp lingering molasses finish.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Bottle @ Dan’s. Hazy, reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Toffee, a touch of fruity, chocolate aroma. Pretty light bodied, chocolate, light fruity, caramel flavor. Bleh.
