jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Pours a thick creamy light tan head over a hazy cooper color with lots of cascading bubbles. Nose is malt, peat and licorice. Taste is bold, smoky with hints of barley and corn husk with a slight astringency. A sharp hop finish clears the palate. Pairs well with lamb stew or gyros.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2006
On tap at F.R. Appleton. Poured deep amber with a cap of off-white head. Sweet caramel, toffee, berries, and a hint of peat in the nose. Toasty caramel was smooth across the middle with some alcohol feel on the roof and toffee + peat at the finish. Medium-bodied with a rather long-lasting sweet and smoky finish. Very good for the style and the best brew of the night.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2008
On tap at Fratellos Oshkosh. Copper with thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, wheat and mild roasted malts. Taste of sweet malts, caramel, roasted malts with a touch of toffee and mild hops. Smooth and decent, I’d have this one again.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Cask, RAF Chicago, 2004: Translucent red plum - fairly still with small white bubbles. Malted, alcoholic plum aroma, with some neat grassy notes that join well with the deep peatiness. Crisp, refreshing palate - clean fresh pears and deep orange (non-tart) plum flesh. Though the finish is lacking an interesting catch, the wonderful fruity flavours make an enjoyable experience.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Dark brown color,small off white head that faded quickly but left a ver small amount of lace.Malty caramel aroma lightly roasty with maybe a hint of hops coming through.malty taste with a decent caramel flavor but still a bit thin.The alcohol is mild at best with just a faint hop presence.Yes it is somewhat sweet with a burnt like quality coming through as well.Over all it's pretty good and definately better then the 2 previous brews i've had from them.Well worth trying again and i's have to say that this brew would make a decent summer drinker.Thanks to Joeybgood for sending this brew.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Deep rosy amber in color with a rim of white head around the edges. Nutty and pine aroma, some cardboard and American whisky. Small hints of maple and brown sugar. Creamy and robust - nuts and caramel really come out. Tastes a lot like a sweetened Irish red. Piney backdrop and subtle spicing to give this one character. Well done incorporation of malts. Caramelized pecan finish.

JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Light chestnut color with a smaller off white head. Heavy caramel aromas with a nice backdrop of darker malts with light pine tree hops and some peat. Mild caramel and vanilla flavors. Dry peat in the linger make one think about chewing on a piece of wood, but otherwise quite good.
