madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. burgundy coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Aroma of berries, spice, fruits. Quite peculiar and offensive in the nose. For me that is. Flavour of berries, caramel, spice, fruits and some grass. Medium to full bodied. Dry frutiys and caramelly end.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle… Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Smells like ketchup – spicy and sweet. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is spicy, herbal and moderately sweet. Finishes spicy, light sweet and mildly acidic.

daknole (9475) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
bottle from Oakes and Beershine. Amber pour. Aroma is spicy as hell. Ovedone on the spices. Flavor is also too spicy. Base beer seems like it would be good, but they went nuts with the spices.

Dogbrick (8688) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a reddish-brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Sweet spices like ginger and allspice in the nose, plus a bit of malt. Medium body with flavors of cinnamon, ginger, bready malt and caramel. The finish is sweetly spiced with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2013
750 cc bottles from Capone’s and Blue Dog. Pours translucent mahogany, more toward deep copper, with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, mild hops, nuts. Tastes caramel malty, rich, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and finishing hops. Got mild oak in this, too. Overall this is another solid beer from Telegraph.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Pours with a huge, foamy light brown head and a murky deep brown body. Very interesting aroma. Notes of peppers, spearmint, peppermint, cocoa powder, bananas, baking chocolate, flour, cinnamon, allspice and twigs. Taste is chocolate, and earthy with notes of earthiness, christmas spices, woodsy, sweet and minty with leather in the finish. Very lively carbonation.
