2.7
Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle from Dr. Jekyll’s. Orange pour with a tan head. Aroma is alcohol, malt, and slight fruit. Taste is buttery, very hot, and a little hop bitterness.

4.2
jimhilt (2635) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Pours a three fingered cream head that slowly fades to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Expecting a dark fruit nose but it is sweet malt. Color is crystal clear amber. Flavor is malty sweet with a good hop backbone. Some lingering hoppiness. High ABV is hidden. $3.00 for a 12oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

3.8
adrian910ss (2604) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark yet clear coppery amber with a small light beige head. Aroma of candied malts, toffee, pine tree sap and wet leather. Taste of candied malts, toffee, light caramel notes, pine and hops. Alcohol detected in the aftertaste.

3.7
durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a reddish amber with a thin beige head. Nose is malty--lots of caramel and toffee, but also some cherry skins and dark fruits, sort of like some American quads. Some hops. Interesting. Taste is a bit boozy.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2012
on draft poured out amber with little head and carbonation...the aroma of warm alcohol and dark fruit very prominent...the sweet malt and dark fruit flavor followed by the warmth of the alcohol burn results in a very nice beer..aging? anything is possible.

3.7
armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2011
12 oz. bottle.
Poured hazy deep mahagony with a moderate tan head. Fruity aroma of malt, honey and caramel, some candy, spicy vanilla. Oily texture, alcool in the flavor with malt and caramel, fruity raisins and honey again with a bit of oxidation. Hops bitterness in the finish with grapefruit, hghhraphe, tuttifrutti.

dlovell2 (2381) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Amber color with thin white head. Sweet fruit aroma and pine. Caramel malt flavors, sweet fruit, slight yeast. Pine finish. Some alcohol is appearant in finish. 10% packs a punch.

3.4
craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2011
Brown pour with a small head. Aroma holds sweet caramel, some resinous and citrus hop presence (though subtle), and biscuit. Flavor is much of the same; sweet malt definitely the main component. A bit thin. OK stuff.

3.2
rocbyter (2185) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Malty aroma. Clear red orange color and a small white head. Moderate sweet beginning with a mellow finish.
