Draft, Belgianfest. Murky dark brown, not much of a head. Slightly tart, yeasty coffee and nuts aroma. Very malty, nots of brown sugar, caramel toast, dark fruits, a slight tartness around the middle along with yeasty frutiness, finishes with a little spice. Very interesting. I havenít disliked any of SIlver Cityís variations on Fat Bastard yet.

Draft @ Naked City, Seattle, WA. Pours a dark ruby amber color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish slightly roasted malty aroma with some yeasty hints and hints of caramel. Sweetish malty spicy caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish with some spicy hints in the aftertaste.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle sampled on 8/29/08: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of rich sweet dark caramel and molasses with a touch of bready Belgian yeast. Body starts with good fullness and rich sweet dark malts drying some toward a doughy sticky finish. Seems like a Scotch ale with a Belgian yeast.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2009
750, capped and corked. Thanks, CSchwaz! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a lacy off-white head. Wood and caramel nose. Medium body and light carbonation. Mostly toffee in the taste, with a bit of citrus and less raisin.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Rich amber brew that has lively carbonation. Though categorized as a strong ale, aroma and taste would indicate a barleywine. Aroma is thick with malt and dark druit, apricot, peaches, tangerines. The brew is similarly flavored with rich malt and fruits, with some dashes of chocolate malt and candi sugar. To me, this is a highly sippable, mildly hopped barleywine.

750ml bottle at Uber. Pours a dark reddish brown. Right off the bat, this brew is malty as hell. Itís a lot like brown shugga or a very old Old Bawdy from Pike - molasses, brown sugar, sweet malts, etc. The alcohol counters, but this oneís really sweet. Itís earthy, full-bodied, and very good - I canít believe this brew is out of Silverdale - a tad bit of cherry cola, and some dark fruits, with a mild carbonation... but still, itís just a little too sweet.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2009
The aroma is very yeasty. Pretty damn sweet and fruity on top of a smokey toffee/chocolate filled scotch ale base. Pours muddy auburn with no head. Smokey bacon/salt flavors followed by fruity cloves and spices, some chocolate and toffee too. Effervescent carbonation. An interesting beer.

750mL bottle, courtesy of CSchwaz (or RiversideAK?). Thanks! Pours a dark, ruby-brown color; thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Lots of dried red fruits, apples, and caramel in the aroma; touches of alcohol; chewy. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy red fruits, caramel, and sweet dark fruits (raisins, dates); especially chewy, dense, dried-fruity strong ale. Lengthy finish: basic dried fruits, chewy maltiness and some lingering bitterness.
