12oz bottle from beer club. Pours deep red with medium-sized tan head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of toffee. Powerful malty flavor with just a touch of bitterness to balance in the finish. I enjoyed this.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Dark brown/ruby hue, medium tan head, strong malty nose with noticeable alcohol, fine firm bittersweet flavor with solid malt backbone and some fruit notes, very well balanced. Ive heard stories of how good this beer is and was glad to finally try it. One of the very best beers Ive ever received from a beer-by-mail/UPS club. Tasted on February 26, 2013.

poured a deep brownish-amber color with a tan head. Aroma was a mix of oak, coffee, malts, and alcohol. Flavour was mainly hops with a sweetness to it. The alocohol was present.

Murky dark brown. Scent of butterscotch, wood, maple, brown sugar and caramlized plums. Very bright and fresh taste up front, lacking depth but still very enjoyable - flavors of wood, plums, brown sugar and some chewy bready flavors. A beer that could be a brown ale and could be a scotch ale and could be a strong ale - its an interesting multi-style hybrid that has its own place. Its good to find beer like this.

Eructoblaster (4007) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle. Gorgeous hazy dark brown body with reddish glints, low carbonation, and a thick, lasting beige creamy head. Wonderful and complex malty aroma with various hints of hops, plum, chocolate and brown sugar. Nice, sharp, and well balanced hoppy taste that hides the alcohol pretty well. It leaves a good bitter/roasty aftertaste. This is a superb Strong Ale!

I think this one is courtesy of luiss, but if not him them some other fine chap that participated in the Mystery Beer Swap trade. Aroma has some dark malts and sweet candied fruit notes. Body is a dark ruddy brown and holds a firm and lasting pinky sized tan head. Tart fruit notes in the fore...apple, cherry..which meld into sweet dark malt flavors. Almost approaches sour at times, but in a good way....a little bit like New Glarus Cherry Stout though much less concentrated and without the overy cherry flavors. The finish is a mix of the previous flavors but imparts a more defined tartness that defines the flavor of the whole beer. Very nice suprise.
