    Dumped into my glass with the realization that I have to sneak in pounding this back in 15 minutes. Super clear dark brown brew with a fizzy tan head and ample slippery lacing. A gentle swirl recreates a thick cover. The aroma is the expected bag of sweet malts. Great. Now I feel like drinking more beers. This will end drunkidly. Sweet and a bit pungent, the earthy qualities come out quickly, hints of marzipan, dull chocolate, dates, sort of toffeeish (maybe) and some sort of red fruit - probably closer to those swedish berries candy. Pretty tasty stuff - I really thought it would suck balls. A healthy amount of roasted malts, sweet caramel and toffee, an almost non existent bittness, light fruit and a bit of candy sweetness but not much. Probably some berries as well. Mild carbonation and a slight slickness is left over. Under medium bodied it seemed. A good beer indeed.

    I am drooling from smelling this! Ultra dark red going dark brown with a small deep tan cap that resides forever. Excellent lacing... well, maybe not excellent but considering this is 18% it’s pretty good.. Man, Smells thick as hell! Awesome. Sweet, intense, cranberries, cocoa, plums, raisin, roast, fragrant and floral, weak pepper. I’m reviewing this pretty close to room temperature. Heavy heavy roast.. this is excellent. Damn, this tastes excellent. Tasty cranberries, alcohol, spices, plum, touch of fruit cake, flowers, a bit of heat initially, raisins, candy, Halls cough drops,.. getting sweeter as I go. Thick roast, very fruity.. I don’t quite see the 90 IBU but the bitterness is by no means silenced. Quite thick mouth feel but not overly which is surprising. Smooth, a bit of carbonation which all help leaving my mouth soft and soothed. Good bitterness, finishes oddly fruity with a spice and a light burn on occasion. I love this beer. 10 thumbs up!

    Tasty brew that veers off the beaten path a bit. Poured out a nice clear reddish brown brew with a large fluffy tan head that really sticks around and leaves impressive ropy lacing. Very malty aroma: toffee, medium roast, wet grains, raisin, prunes, sweet molasses, almond... Belgian style indeed. The taste is also pretty good but here is where it veers from the norm and I’m not convinced if it’s a good thing or not. Toffee, caramel, roasted malts (faint memories of a bock), light spice with very mild licorice, dulling bitterness fits nice, alcohol hitting home inside my brain bucket, raisin, dark fruits... I’ve forgotten what I thought was off about this beer mainly cause I haven’t eaten and I’m listening to Opie & Anthony and barely paying attention, maybe a hint of chocolate... maybe, mild hops, medium fruits with no citrus. There is no lack of flavour coming out of this bottle. Past medium bodied, nice soft carbonation, finishes... yea... it’s done. What’s with the finish? My third Driftwood brew and I gotta say that these guys are getting it done. Very drinkable. Happy birthday to me happy birthday...

    On tap. Dark amber brew with a large, thick darker off white creamy head and just a crap load of lacing. The aroma is mainly caramel and soft fruit (orange, grapefruit, lemon). Man, does this beer have a bite or what. Grapefruit... lots of unsweetened grapefruit and tons of GF after taste, apricots, rich malts, lemon, bread, red apple shine, pin. Very easy drinking! Smooth with an obviously large hop presence that just slays the ’buds. Excellent brew.

    On tap. Very dark brown brew with a big light brown creamy cap and endless lacing leaving rings. The main aroma is the dark malts that are not heavily roasted, dark citrus, apricots, grapefruit... it all seems to come across warm. Wow. What an interesting beer: intense roast, massive citrus grapefruit hops, lots and lots of pine... this is pretty much a hybrid IPA, probably a dark IPA. This has more pine than the IPA I just had, something almost chocolatey (mostly on the after taste). Apricots, pumpernickel crust ??, sweet candy. Excellent after taste! Junipers? More massive hops. This beer really surprised me. I wish I had more time and no vehicle to drive....
