corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with some dark amber chocolate brown hues when held to a light source with a thick 2 finger frothy tan head with good retention that slowly settles into a lasting cap. Sporadic spots of soapy lacing. Spicy peppery aroma with some estery Belgian yeast notes that give off a lot of dark fruit. Hints of raisin, grape, plum and fig with a bit of nutty malt and alcohol. Very quaffable medium body with lots of spice, dark fruit notes and smooth malt character. Hints of dark cherry, grape, plum, raisin and fig along with some peppery spice, chocolate malt and hazelnut. The sweetness of the dark fruit and the smooth maltiness are very well balanced and the ABV is very well masked without a trace of alcohol heat. Very complex and quaffable.

PhillyBeer2112 (2803) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Reddish copper, foaming fizzy head. Aroma is restrained but hints at nuts and caramel. Maybe a little spicy gingerbread or candied citrus? Flavor is light and bready with a hint of rye and a little alcohol burn at the finish, which is kinda rough and maybe even a tad fuselly.

ilovedarkbeer (2733) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2008
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a brownish orange color with tiny clear bubbles atop the head of a hazy body. Nose is Nose is chestnuts, barnyard, and parchment. Tastes like honey, funk, and wood, and there is a dry semi bitter finish. Interesting.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Tasted on draft at the Purple Pig. Pours cloudy dark amber with a thick off-white head that recedes to lace. Nose of banana bread and malt with hazelnuts as an afterthought. Flavor is caramel malt with nice bitterness and a slightly sour note. The hazelnuts really come through strongly on the palate. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long finish that reminds me of Christmas.

BREWMUSKCLES (2646) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2009
farmflavors of aged broken egg, wood and other funky flavor and aromas mixed with a nutty slightly sweet toffee in alcohol. greasy and citrus balanced it is also a bit spicy in a different but balanced way with anise type licorice or probably just light rye or caraway seed in fresh forest green. tricky and demonstrative it is good for that reason and little else. touch of bitter that is unfinished and dryish.eehhh

This is an interesting beer. More fruity than I was expecting. Its strong but also refreshing. Light and sweet with alcoholic character.

Slipstream (2566) - USA - SEP 8, 2009
I have tried Moretti and Peroni, but this is my first Italian craft brew. At US$ 16, it may be the most expensive half liter of beer I have ever purchased. It comes in a nice swingtop bottle with an attractive European label. Medium brown pour with a decent head. Good aroma of sweet malt with herbal notes and a dash of yeast. SSF is fairly peppy and flavorful. It has a prickly mouthfeel and an exciting aftertaste that is both clean and warm. Solid malt base and interesting hops, with chestnuts having a subtle impact and adding something unique to the flavor. This is overpriced, but it is a fine brew that is worth a try, and deserves a higher rating.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany with large beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel with a distinct nuttiness and a few acidic fruit notes. The flavor is, well, chestnut, with a caramel sweetness behind it. Theres a bit of a leafy hop bitterness around, too. The finish is tree fruit and light caramel. Kind of predictable, but decent.

Turtles (2456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2015
750ml bottle. Hazy dark amber. Aroma: Deep sweet and nutty fragrance, toffee, chestnut, cherry, forest. The flavor starts with a very pleasant sweetness, burnt brown sugar, nuts, tofee and candies. End becomes slightly sour, but in a pleasant way. Easy to drink, may lack some depth, still exciting,

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle at tasting at Chris Fischers (from Liars Club) house. Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. Its malty with a little sweetness and a grassy hop notes, as well as a floral note. Light to medium bodied, tingly on the tongue and a touch warming.
