bubbleflubber (2209) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Pours deep cherry-wood off the tap, reminiscent of a good whiskey. The nose is malty and earthen. Some vegetal flavors mingle with vanilla extract, powdered sugar (like the inside of a bon-bon) and malts. These carry through the finish, and accompany a light bitter with a medium-thin mouthfeel. Decent, but a different brew here. Nice to try, and would have again.

Brown-amber. Earthy, lightly hoppy aroma. Cookie, earth and light melony hop. Soft and drinkable winter brew. I like it.

Time to catch up before BCTC. Bottle at PilsnerPeters Spring Throwdown. Thank to everyone who brought great beer and ribs and pickles and everything! Amber with ring. Caramel brown sugar aroma. Toast caramel marshmallow with mild coffee bitterness. High carbo, effervescent. A little thin.

Tap at House of Beers in Dunedin, FL. Rich deep crimson pour with a very clingy white head. Cinnamon and pit fruit - really nice winter beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing the bottle! Poured a clear medium toffee with a light beige ring for head. Medium caramel, wintry spices, toffee, cocoa powder, and baby powder provide an odd blend in the nose. Flavor was heavier, and full of caramel and toffee maltage... baby powder, powdered sugar, nutmeg, and brown sugar provided somewhat complimentary spicage. Somehow watery on the palate with sharp, sticky sweet malts and a hint of alcohol. Not-too-drinkable... but OK.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent orange amber with an average off white creamy head. Aroma of nutmeg, pie crust, vanilla and a lot of various spices. Flavors of the same with tons of nutmeg/vanilla that was covering up any malt/hop presence.

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Tap at Tylers in the Boro. flat coke appearance with sweet fruitcake and roasted malt nose. Flavor is mocha milkshake, nutmeg, and weird christmas cookies. I am not a huge fan. Creamy and smooth palate, but just not my thing.

pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Brick store on tap. Brown with a creamy head. Looks thicker than it tastes. Some elements of a nice brown ale, caramel and toffee flavors, but a different finish. A spicey finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Garnet in color, fairly dark, moderate foamy beige head, falls quickly leaving spotty lacing.   Heavy carob aroma, that fake chocolate stuff from the 80s, as well as some butterscotch.   Some bready malts in there as well, but also a slight touch of vegetable.   Chocolate malt, as in the old fashion shakes, on the tongue, moderate sweetness.   Hints of molasses and Earl Gray tea as well.   Falls off somewhat quickly.   Little to no hop presense.   Definitely a malt oriented brew.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Take some golden grahams and cocoa pebbles, put them in a bowl with milk... let sit for 20 minutes and then remove the cereal... what you have left is what lingers, milky sludge smarmied with the dressings of breakfast cereal.   Certainly an interesting brew, and spiced in a way I would have never imagined.   Decent, interesting, but not sure I would entertain this one again.   However, it is unique.   Thanks Jim for this one!
