Bottle at Papsø. Pours hazy amber with a medium creamy off white head. The aroma is malt, sweet fruit and light citric earthy hops. The flavour is sweet malty, caramel and light hops.

Great bottle. It makes the beer look enticing. The taste, however, is fairly basic for this style. Light, but nothing beyond the ordinary.

It’s because of those bison fingers. - . I do not have bison fingers! .. .
bought in a BYO sixer at the shitty Royal Liquors in Kansas City, and the glue sniffer cashier gave me a 50% discount, well, not on purpose, he was to stoned to notice that i had six clearly different bottles in one of there offered holders..
oh well, when over 85% of your beer stock is dusty and/or has black sediment in it, you deserved it buttheads.. .. .
..Pours a dark tawny brown, decent low head, some lacing .. . some light maple, very light brandy, a touch of heavy grandma cookie, light raisin, and a bit of brandy soaked 50 year old wood .. . not much of a disguise .. . fairly simple, the 6.4 seems to work quite well .. .
snortski .. . .. . not exactly thin, but an ok mouth .. . for being at least 8 months, maybe even double its pretty good.. . not a xmas beer or even a mild winter warmer, you know, if this was there fall beer- it might work a bit better, but that being said, a pretty nice little brewski but it lacks any depth .. .
. .
. . So all I gotta do is, I’ll ask them some big shot, like math or science, history-type college question and that will totally stump them by knowing a lot more about the answer than they do.

.-...In that movie, Matt Damon played a genius janitor, you’re just a janitor.

.-...Right, you stumped me with that one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-brown color with a huge foamy beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was malty, sweetish and had touches of molasses and fruity hops. The flavor was malty, toasty and nutty with notes of vanilla, cream, cherries and caramel. The finish was long, sweetish, malty and fruity. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

This is a nice clean straight ahead ale. I wouldn’t really even rate it as an English strong--it’s not very rich or complex, and it’s fairly thin for that style. All that said, it’s tasty and very drinkable. It pours dark amber with a big three-finger tan head that dissipates. The attack is tart, even a bit to the cherry. Very little finish. Compare it even to some of the more adventurous ambers and it comes up a little tame--hard to knock such an agreeable beer though.

Ernest (7791) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2007 2007 bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with light notes of dried mango, black tea, and cinnamon. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. It’s quite watery, but the aroma and balance are both good, and it’s cleanly executed.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottled. Poured hazy reddish-amber with a sticky beige head. Caramel, chocolate, and iced tea on the nose with highlights of cloves and light detergenty notes. The flavor found deeper, aged caramel, molasses, and iced tea at the core.. spicy black pepper, clove, and nutmeg accents.. sweeter, nutty finish. Medium-bodied with just OK flow across the palate.. balance was solid. This was quite drinkable, but not great.

3.2
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent ruby mahogany with a small, frothy, spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramely and grainy English malts with a touch of citrusy hops. Body starts with some foamy carbonation and piny hops toward a thinner, bittersweet finish with some earthy drier malts. An ok English strong ale, but could be a little sweeter.

3.5
wlajwl (7011) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Aroma is mint, light pine and fruit. The flavor is caramel, complex fruit, spices, a small hint of vegetables and a tart and dry finish.
