Tmoney99 (10450) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a huge creamy off-white head that would not diminish and produced excellent lacing. Second most attractive brew I have seen. Heavy complex aroma of roasted malt , molasses, citrus and brown sugar. Medium to full body with a thick texture. Good flavor with heavy sweet and bitter and a long finish. Great brew for number 800.

madsberg (10141) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
Botted: Orange coloured. Clear. Dense light brown head. Hops, citrus, spices, sweetness and fruit in the nose. This is really promising. Flavour is near perfect. Sweetness, allcohol, spices and loads of hops. Some light chocolate notes. Is full bodied. Is dry and alcoholdense in the end, where a smooth bitterness lingers gengly on the palate. This is the shit for me, and I can’t thank BBB63 enough for sending this as an extra. An EXTRA ladies and gentlemen. Mike really rocks as much as this beer.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2008
OK, does it count if I’ve only tasted this as part of a recipe? Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown made a caramel sauce for an ice cream Sunday out of this beer, and paired it with a Moloko Stout during a Three Floyd’s tasting given by two f the brewers. Great combo, and delicious sauce. Thumbs up for beer-food pairings, and the use of beer in recipes.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Malzig-trockener und sehr gealtert wirkender Antrunk mit wenig Hopfen. Würzig-süß werdend, die Malzigkeit ist angenehm und in dieser Vollmundigkeit nicht erwartet. Dennoch wirkt das Aroma nicht übertrieben. Gut! /10/9/9/12/10
