hopscotch (10999) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle C&PsLYFO Throwdown Murky, caramel-colored ale with a small, white head. The aroma is a bit odd minty, herbal and fruity... along with the expected caramel and toffee notes. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and almost no carbonation. Nice, sweet, caramel flavor. Lengthy, lightly sweet, malty finish. Bottle provided by Dickinsonbeer!

daknole (10941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle from the Otown throwdown. Copper pour. Not a favorite of the day for me. Not all bad either. Some dark fruits, caramel and some kind of wet wood or paper. Odd. Flavor is a bit metallic and weird. Some fruit was evident and malt, but they got lost in the odd flavors. Not so good.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle shared by puzzl. Hazy deep brown beer with almost no head. Pretty muddy looking, really. Sweet and very malty aroma with lots of rich toasted brown malt. Chewy and sweet and lightly plummy as well. It’s very sticky and chewy with a good balance of fruity/malty characters. It’s not bad, but it’s kind of boring.

after4ever (7942) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Liquid Sunshine V. 750, capped. Great stuff! Crystal clear dark amber with bright caramel highlights. Big sweet fissy, plummy nose, maybe a little boozy. Creamy medium body, maybe a little sticky. Figs, plums, brown apples, and caramel on the mid-palate.
