Thickest beer yet from this sampler. Opaque brownish black color. Smells of roasted coffee. Slight burned and roasted taste follows through. Simple and not much else to the beer. Maybe a little hop bitterness on the aftertaste.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2006
A Sim Rate (bottled from The White Horse): Aroma of red wine. Almost sweet and cherry. Flavour is similar with a morello cherry taste. Lovey sweet finish...like the last sip of a shirley temple. Great red amber colour.

Aroma is malty and fruity with a bit of citrus at times. Taste is similar very drinkable for the strength.

[bottle at GBBF 06] Dark brown with some red tingest, minimal head. Sweet malty nose, caramel, berry fruit, toffee and a faint touch of smoke. full body, sweet finish. too sweet for my tastes but nice

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Poured to a brownish re, with medium off-white head that dissiopated fairly quickly, to a little lacing. Initial aroma was dark fruit, mostly plums and raisins. Flavor at first was more of the malty dark fruit. As bottle warmed, the alcohol, though only 6.2%, became more evident in both the aroma and taste. This beer was a little like a Braleywine, but not quite there. This was not one of my favorite beers from Flying Dog.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2007 Bottle at GBBF 06: sweet (a bit too much), molasses, honey, very matly and very fruity, dried fruits, some delicate roasted and hoppy bitterness, lots of spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon?), overall a great beer.

Mahagony color. Nice malty and caramely nose. Same applies for the taste with some smokey traces.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Deep, dark, reddish color with a small-yet-creamy tan head that lingers on as a thick film. Dark fruits, citrus and raspberry in the aroma with dark chocolate, cereal and light esters. Solid body with a dry creaminess in the mouth. Flavor finds a fruity, bittersweet conglomeration of malts and hops with all the goodies wed found in the aroma based atop a heap of DME and finishing with both a juicy kiss of citrus and a bitter lick of java. I just cant stop liking this one.
