Tmoney99 (14189) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle from b3shine. Poured clear brown color with a minimal frothy off-white head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. My expectations where met.

hopdog (12083) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with a large sized off white head. Lacing left on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toasted malts, nutty, and lots of diactyl (very buttery, buttered popcorn, etc.). Tastes of the same.

DocLock (10441) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep coppery pour with ruby edges and minimal off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, mild brown sugar, toffee, and some offy notes. Tastes of heavy caramel malt, with slight brown sugar, nut, and dark fruit notes, but the flavor profile and mouthfeel remains rather uninteresting and blase. Not horrible, but not a repeater for me.

12oz. Bottle from b3shine. Pours clear amber with small white head. Sweetish grainy malts, light fruity, mild toasted. It is what it is. On my phone so this is short.

b3shine (8659) - Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks fine; a transparent orangish-brown with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells weird; skunky, roasty, and malty. Tastes like it smells with a semi-sweet backbone. Average (at best) on the palate. Not awful, but not good either.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel and butterscotch. The flavor was sweetish and tangy toasty caramel, butterscotch and moderate vague fruity hops. There was a faintly vegetal undertone. The finish was long. Fairly full bodied. Ok.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber body under a small foamy off-white head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is sweet toasted and Munich malt with a little too much diacetyl for me. A little honey and crackery notes also. The flavor is sweet caramel malt with a butterscotch laced finish. Tastes a little thin overall. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly doughy clingy finish and moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty weak effort. Too sweet with no malt complexity and that nagging diacetyl.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle and served in standard pint glass, I think I got this from beerbill: Amber hue with a fading head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of tangerine and apple esters, plenty of caramel and toasted malts, walnut, and a hint of soap. The taste is a straight forward malt based brew with the caramel upfront. There is a hint of classic hop bitterness upon the finish along with some diacetyl tones. The mouth feel is lively but a tad watery too. All in all an okay bier in a genre that is loaded with just okay biers.
