bhensonb (10807) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with no real head. Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, a little hop, and arguably vanilla and oak. Med plus body. It starts sweet, moves towards dark fruit, shifts to oaky astringency. The finish is fairly dry and oaky, though the sugar sort of hangs around. Pretty good stuff.

Pinball (10736) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2009
clear amber, no lasting head, but smooth white while it is there. aroma of old ale, vanilla, sweet malts, caramel, wood. alc pretty well hidden in the aroma. flavor is sweet malty, toffee, wood, faint spicy, quite strong flavor. alc hidden but you know it’s powerfull from the overall flavor. a bit too bitter woody spicy, but quite interesting nevertheless. the kind of beer you would spend the entire night emptying slowly.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle at a tasting, thanks to Paul. Pours hazy, purple-brown with a medium, off-white head. Ripe fruits and heavy malts on the nose, some Annie’s mac n’ cheese. Extremely sweet, lots of baked beans (which I love!) And toffee, some ripe fruits, mild booze. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent warm finish, some more baked beans, toffee, brown sugar, some vanilla. Tons of sugar. Good stuff.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle at Dilly Deli. Poured hazy ruby brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate nutty malt, caremel and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with flat carbonation. Medium to heavy creamy sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish and small alcohol burn of moderate to long duration. This is a solid brew.
