EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 The appearance of this beer is a dark reddish brown color with a medium off-white head, and the aroma has hints of toasted and caramel malts, Belgian yeast, and raisins. The taste is slightly sweet, mildly umami, and slightly sour, and the palate mixes an thin texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long finish.

750 ml bottle via phaleslu. Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma had the fruit character I was expecting, dark fruits, a hint of cherry, caramel, and a decent amount of buttery toffee. The flavor is pretty sweet, buttery toffee, caramel, dark fruits with plums and cherry standing out. This is good, but not great; certainly a bit different.

mcberko (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a dark purple, almost like grape juice, with some bubbles for a head. Aroma of black currants, some Belgian candied sugar, and some lightly tart grapes. Flavour is lightly tart, with black currant, some mild candied sweetness, and grapes. Lightly tart and very dark fruity. ABV is no where to be detected. Good fruit beer - Im just not a big fan of black currants.

Bottle @ Brads house Minneapolis, courtesy of jcnielsen. Pours a fairly clear, deep brown appearance with a small brown head. Nutty, dark berry, currant, chewy toasty malty, light caramel aroma. Light cough syrupy, blackberry/currant, a touch tart, nutty, caramel flavor. Not exactly my thing but its kind of interesting.
