oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottled@Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Deep ruby colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrusy and also has some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some wooden and very sugary. Very sweet aftertaste. This probably would need a few years to balance out a bit.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2015
On tap at brewery. Appearance: film of tan head, good lacing, dark brown/ruby red color, clear. Aroma: caramel, prune, light molasses, oak. Palate: soft carbonation, creamy texture with light stickiness on back end, thin alcohol notes on back, medium-full body. Taste: sweet chocolate and light prune sweetness with notes of molasses and slight oakiness, falling into a light hop balance and then finishes with some booziness. Overall, pretty good beer, really impressed. Unique.

Iím new to beer but I love love love this one! Seems brown ales are my thing. I canít speak super intelligently about this yet since Iím a newbie, but if you love Dogfish Head Palo Santo, youíll love this too. (Thank you for listening to my newbie opinion.)

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours hazy chestnut with ruby edges and minimal tan head. Nose is like liquid bacon mixed with charred oak, hops, and cacao. Tastes malty, smoky, with big notes of bacon, cacao, rye. Smooth but the flavor was a bit odd at first. Hell, I even tasted the SALT from the bacon in this. Finished complex, salty, and I dare say it grew on me. A technical mess, this beer could be used as a soak for french toast, and would sell a million orders. Or use this for steaks, pot roast, chili, or French onion soup.

alobar (3055) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours ruby brown with no head. Aroma of toasted malt, dark fruit, and chocolate. Very sweet flavor with cherry, molasses, alcohol, and some chocolate. A bit over the top.

Pretty plain ale smell. Standard ale taste with slight mineral and a bit of nut character.

cheap (4525) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Small sample at bocktown and thatís all I needed. Strong ale indeed. Fading head. Darker yellah, maybe orange or mahogany, I guess, but I think not that dark. Slight volatile aroma. Stronger initial blast in the personality. Alky, warm on the palate. Slight medicinal palette, yeah, its american alright, some manners but not many.
