BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured brown with a quick tan head that settled to a ring. Aromas of dark fruits and a hint of alcohol. The flavor found brown sugar, roasted malt, and dark fruits. Medium body, with a sweet aftertaste.

Kinz (3299) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2013
Slutfest! Perhaps the perfect label and name for this party. Medium amber, clear, nice head. Raisin and caramel aroma. Flavor is a match, very rich, just a touch of dusty hops on the finish. Good, but I wish the hops hadnít shown up.

Butters (3780) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Sampled at Slutfest 4 - Sexytime! Just not doing it for me. Kinda a mess of chocolate malt and bitter hop and interesting. But just not what I was looking for. Awesome name and label though.

Gachupines (903) - USA - MAR 29, 2013
Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is light caramel and toffee. Flavor is rich caramel and toffee with a nice hit of hops which surprised me for an old ale. Itís a little thinner than some, but I find it quite pleasant. Wife: 3.85

GTAEgeek (1237) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark, ruby color, with a small, tan head. Dark chocolate, cherries, heavy cream, peat, and savory spices. Very sweet, with a very faint roasted and hoppy bitterness. The palate is heavy, sticky, and fairly dry. The finish is mildly bitter, with lots of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a strong, malty, and complex beer.
