JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Ruby chestnut color with an absolutely hugh head of beige bubbles. Lightly toasted rye bread with a thin layer of orange marmalade. Quite clean, dry and fresh. Acidic malt with dark chocoalte, cedar and toasted nuts. Quite irish. Dry malt linger with a touch of spice.

Bottle courtesy of jasonp. Dark ruby with a small tan head. Nose is sweet maltiness, light hops, and faint caramel. taste is more light hops and light bitterness overtop of a lightly toasted malt and light caramel backbone.Very drinkable. Body is medium with a nice carbonation feel. Finish is more toasty malts and carmael with light earthy hops and a hint of fruit. Nice session style beer!

Cybercat (6142) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Had as Bob’s 1st. Pours clear cinnamon with a nice light tan head. Aroma features toasted malt and hints of apple and caramel. Flavor ups the fruit component and rounds out a very satisfying ale. (So why doesn’t Bob’s 1st have a separate entry?) Mouthfeel presents decent body and good fizz.

cheap (6085) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Brownish color pour with a head that fades rapidly. Plain ol beery aroma. Friendly initial low alky malty taste makes this presentable. Decent amount of co2 on the palate. Comes across a little creamy. Yes, friendly and rather easy. I was expecting something overly malty for some reason but this is not too bad! Picking up some carob in there I think. Good overall beer experience. Probably could drink a few of these at a stiing. More like a mild ale.

thornecb (6058) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Pours clear mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white micro head slowly pancakes as it recedes leaving trailing sheets. Toffee, molasses and roasted nut aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning dry in the abrupt toasted grain finish.

3.1
ganache (6056) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2017 Tap at the Foundry in Pittsburgh, as ‘Bob’s First Ale’. Dark rotted copper brown with a short white head. Very dry taste, grainy, somewhat malty, woody, low caramel and bitterness. Medium-full body, textbook for style, hint of apple juice. No nose to speak of there. Just what I expected. [2017.05.20: 3.1]

Bottle back in the Jerz is identical (props for quality control, I guess?). [2017.07.13: 3.1]

notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2002
One of my favorite magic hats. Interesting mix of flavors with a nice, chocolate finish. It does have a very strange mouthfeel, but it's one that grows on you. It is really like no other beer out there. However, every once and a while the I get a bottle with an unusual level of bitterness, which makes me lower the rating a little.

3.4
Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Initial aroma put me off, but this smelled a lot better after the pour -- hops, coffee, pale malt, some muted toffee. Decent label, a lightened porter coloring, beady tan head. Nicely hoppy, some sweet creaminess, lots of peaty twang and roastiness. Some muted cereal flavors underneath. Long-lasting hop finish on a medium body. Tangy on the lips. I get the distinct feeling that this would be a lot better from the cask, as it reminds me of a good brewpub ale. Definitely better as it warms.

3.1
markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle from Magic Hat. Pours a red-Amber with a white head. Nose is some malt, toast, slight fruit, some plum, and a dry yeast. Flavor is similar with toast, malt, slight plum, and mild fruit. Light in body and a nice Irish red overall.
