hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Tap, pizza port solana beach. Deep amber color, sweet malt brown sugar. Flavor is over the top sweet, towering over any bitterness that may be there. Strong alcohol present throughout. Pleasing, warming character, but just too simple & one-dimensional. Ok I guess.

JorisPPattyn (9906) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Draught Small rim over red-brown beer. Sweet, coloured malts, cookies with caramel, lightly herbal. Alcoholic bread; leafy, near-bitterish notes, parsley. Balance - for its ABV - is impressive. Bit "tangy"; good against any danger of cloying. Well-bodied, very slick. Impressive, as it absolutely doesnt show its awesome potence. Great!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Tap at Solana Beach location with Ocean Beach moniker. Oh man this is not good. Über sweet, sticky syrupy with some harsh alcohol bite and iron metallic. Clear deep amber SRM with weak head retention. Nose is way off: chemical, sharp, maybe wood grain and sticky grenadine. Even green olive brine Could not finish a taster. Ultra ultra blood iron metallic finish. Bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
On tap @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach: Poured in a half pint glass with a generous overflow of liquid that could barely keep the small development of foam head. The head quickly flat lined out leaving behind a bare and naked dark amber liquid. Nose is bold with a heavy backbone of malts dominating the aroma and allowing me to understand as to why this was served in such a small glass. The flavor is overbearing with a thick taste of caramel malts that has me drowning in alcohol and sugary beer.
