A very strong ale tasted at Denise’s party. I can see now that most of the beers we tried had an ABV of over 10% - some paid the price for that. This was a strong ale, and unfortunately, a little harsh, with a sharp espresso flavor. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
22oz bottle from ksurkin. Rating #167. Thick brown color with a beige head. Sweet toffee and caramel aroma with some brown sugar as well. Bitter up front, followed by caramel and toffee, pretty good. (2831) pushkinwow (2781) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Bomber from the brewery thanks to PJs parents from 2012. Dark mahogany with a creamy dark biege head that fades to a thin ring around the glass. Booze, bit plum, nice boozy somewhat wet hops, semi sweet malt with a bit of caramel. Mild carbonation with a moderate body, bit sweet with a bite, slightly dry, tasty. burg326 (5479) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured an orange light amber color with aromas of booze, caramel, light fruit and some subtle cherries. Flavors are caramel booze with a hint of fruit. Decent beer overall. Jow (3899) - New York, USA - MAY 9, 2013

Bottle at RBJG#2 - Grand Tasting Tim’s Place. Cloudy red/brown - white head. Barley, fruity, some spices, mouldy, sweetness, oxidation, alcoholic, fruity notes, light citrus, medium carbonation. JulienHuxley (5792) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle given to me as an extra by GT, thanks! Perfectly clear red pour with light orangey hue and a few spirals of white foam. Lots of sherry oxidization in the aroma, I could certainly feel the age here but it aged with tremendous grace. Notes of honey, burnt toffee, madeira with just the right level of booziness to convince you you are drinking a fine strong beverage. jonno (2756) - JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
Overtly sweet, lots of forest berries and jubes. Candi floss. Caramel. Just too sweet for mine.
