rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a chalice. The bottle has a best before date of 16 04 12. The back label also lists the abv at 8%. Appearance: It has a dark burgundy colored body with a light haze and some yeast floaters. This is capped by a light beige head of frothy light foam. From the pour it left some yeast sediment on top of the head which looks like a dusting of cinnamon. The head hangs on well, slowly fading as I drink and making some nice lacing on the glass. Smell: There are fruity and estery yeast notes of raisins and apple peel with a slight hint of spice and funk. This is all comes with a nice sweet bready maltiness as well. Taste/Palate: Wow, this one has good complexity with fruity and spicy yeast, sweet bready and nutty malts. I get notes of cocoa powder blending with notes of walnuts and hazel nuts like Nutella within the sweet bready maltiness. Fruity notes remind me of raisins and as it warms I get some cherry as well. Hops are light and help to balance with mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. The palate has a solid medium body with mild carbonation. Notes: This beer has wonderful complexity and drinkability.

rodsquad (111) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours deep brown with a foamy beige head. Aromas of Cola Cubes, toffee malt and a gentle orange sherbet. Flavours of warm, spicy stewed apples and a light orange and lemon zest. Surprising light, sparkly body. This looked heavy but was beautifully light and sweet with real zesty refreshment. A seriously nice beer.

Braudog (6518) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Another icon that Im surprised to find Ive never recorded notes on this. As advertised, it is indeed chestnut colored, and emblematic of the style. Rich and sugary, tightly weaved, nutty, and sweet. My "score" may seem a bit low just because Im not a huge fan of the style. (#6508, 2/17/2017)

Bottle. Reddish-Brown in colour. Fruity (dried fruits and berries). Malty (caramel, toffee, candy sugar, chocolate). Spicy & Yeasty (some floaties & sediment). Sweetish with bitter hoppy edge. Nice. (2008)

Bush_Docta (210) - - FEB 17, 2017
Pours with a big, thick head but dissipates to a ring quickly; copper-brown colour. The aroma is Belgian yeast and brown sugar. The taste is breadiness, caramel and dark fruits with a spicy, dry finish. Light-medium body, rather fizzy in the mouthfeel. A solid dubbel but expected more.
