wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle at the Saturday night post-grand-tasting-tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours clear cola with an average beige head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is white chocolate covered raisin with some caramel and a touch of nutty malt. The flavor is that very unique white chocolate covered raisin with a lightly bitter toasted note and, caramel, and nutty malt. The body is full with light carbonation and a long toasted nutty, caramel, and raisin finish.

Drjohnrock (427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Sampler from bottle at 2014 Price Hill Beer Fest, tasted on February 16, 2014. Medium ruby/brown hue, strong boozy/musty nose, smooth but strong flavor like the aroma. The abv certainly makes its presence known. A fine beer.

italarican (1425) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle generously shared at the RBWG grand tasting. Mahogany pour. Loads of awesome melted chocolate flavor. Doubled down on the chocolate in the flavor with slight strawberry notes. There’s this interesting cooling sensation that I really dig. Crisp, cooling, luscious. Great stuff!

chinchill (1381) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2014
12 oz bottle Pours red-brown with good clarity and a modest but partly durable head. Strong nutty aroma suggest a beer that is sweeter than this turns out to be. Only mildly sweet upfront, it turns mildly bitter by the aftertaste. Medium+ body; medium carbonation. Smooth. O: an imperial nut brown in both aroma and flavor. High ABV is well hidden.

Rich chocolate and hazelnut flavor, great color and chewiness. You have a hard time telling it’s a big beer.
