DocLock (7501) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bomber from Blue Dog. Pours hazy ruby through direct light and with translucent dark brown edges through indirect light, with a finger of frothy off-white head. Nose is malt, molasses, hops, mild fusels, brown sugar, and some earthy butyric acid notes. Tastes hoppy, earthy, with molasses, brown sugar, fusels, and an off-putting finish. Gets a bit more discombobulated as it warms, with the palm sugar and molasses getting more prominent, but this one never gets sweet, and stays hot and rummy throughout.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy wood, dark sugar & toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were exceeded.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours out like coffee with a decent head that recedes. Smells of toffee and sweet malted brownies. Full on the tongue with good carbonation. A malty sweet brew with good whiskey notes. Throw in some coffee, toffee and bread crumbs and we’ll call it a nightcap. A bit overdone.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Aroma of maple, brown sugar, woos, hints of rum, malty. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweetness and alcohol spice. Heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, very pleasant brew.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours an average mahogany with a nose of caramelized sugar, sweet malt donuts, light rose, and light biscuit. Flavor is a malty barrage of sugary biscuit flakes in a vat of light pancake syrup and booze. Average mouthfeel. Rum? Arrr, methinks ye be pullin’ me leg. Arrrrr. Not bad-- in fact it’s kinda tasty-- but the lack of rum and the too-pronounced boozy finish detract.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Draft, courtesy of staff at ChurchKey, thanks! Clear dark maroon color. Aroma of caramel and subtle licorice. Taste is lightly spiced and slightly boozy caramel.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at CK thanks to Travlr. Deep clear ruby with medium off white foam. Nose is booze, tomato stew, stewed carrot. Taste is bitter, toffee, caramel, tomato, herbs, puppy breath. Palate is heavier, rich, oily. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (2576) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Tap. Pours clear brown with a small tan head that laces well. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, caramel, alcohol - quite interesting actually. Flavor is over the top sweet roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, and alcohol - rummy. Strong alcohol notes throughout and a very warming finish.

beerbastard (639) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 29, 2012
This is different than most of the Amer Strong Ales. Sweet brown sugars and cotton candy with alcohol in the nose, however it is difficult to detect. The flavors are subdued, nothing jumps out. I’m getting molasses with alcohol and some rum in the background. Its not too sweet, the alcohol balances that. Not catching much in the hop flavors. Nice palate. Its a little expensive. wouldn’t buy again, but i did enjoy it.

BOLTZ7555 (2706) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Chestnut/pecan colored body with a razor thin ivory head that diminishes into a ring. Nose is almost unnoticeable. Very subtle. Slight aroma of caramel and toffee. Flavor shows a little bit of tobacco, oak, vanilla, and a bit of the rum. A bit thin...
