Lukaduke (3197) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a deep mahogany color with a large three finger off white foam. The nose is very different tootsie roll, wet wood, root beer herbs and a touch of coffee. The palate follows the nose in a mild sort of way.... Touch of bitterness, kola nut, rootbeer barrels, interesting little beer. Think this would be perfect on a autumn day in New England.

Bottle, 05/26/2013. Pours dark brown, some transparency in the light, big white fizzy head, soapy lacing. Aroma is slight chocolate, dark roast, tart musty fruit and yeast, smoky wood. Taste is light chocolate and roasted malts, porter-like, tart berry-like notes, nutty wood. Thin palate, a bit watery. Not necessarily anything wrong, but not sure this is my favorite style at lower ABV, needs a bit more bite and definition.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pour is murky brown with a big cream-colored head and good lacing. Roasty, cardboard, light bready malty, earthy, somewhat caramelly aroma. Taste is bland and watered-down, tangy, pasty, bready, oxidized roasty souriness. Thin body and high carbonation. The name fits this beer perfectly because it is a train wreck.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a bubbly, tan head. Somewhat funky, cherry tangy tart, caramel aroma. More cherries and berries in the spritzy flavor along with some caramel and chocolate. I really didnt enjoy this one at all. This definitely shouldnt be categorized as a mild. Move it to sour/wild ale!

CloakedDagger (2370) - - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a deep nutty brown with a slight haze and an off-white head. Very odd wooden aroma, appears very chemical - even plastic-like. Light body, again odd plastic notes and some wood coming through. Slightly roasty. A bit of a mess to be honest. 270413

SlackerMads (3350) - DENMARK - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Opaque dark reddish brown with a thick good lacing bubbly light beige head. Aroma is light roasted, oak, rubber band, light chemical, chewing tobacco, fruity. Taste is light sweet and bitter. Light body, oily/watery texture, soft carbonation. Strange but easy to drink.

Reynolds314 (3426) - Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2013
Uhhh hard to describe. Watery cardboard and moldy toast is about the best i can do. Its not awful because its just so watery. I get what there trying to do but all around its really an odd attempt at a style that just doesnt work for me.

Bottle at Yesprs - Thanks. Clear dark brown - offwhite head. Soapy, roasted, cardboard, light glue, high dusty, tobacco notes, red berries, light wooden notes, phenolic notes. Wierd.
