OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On cask at brewry, poured into 10oz nonic. Dark amber, slightly hazy with very little carbonation. Soapy offwhite head leaving laces on the glass. Nose is fruity, sweet malt, piney hops. Medium bodied (wasnt expecting it to be this light), well balanced, boring mouthfeel with short sweet finish.

One of the vintage 2010 bottles. Dark cloudy amber with small white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel with a mellowed alcohol taste. Nice smooth thick body. Very enjoyable beer.

12oz bottled on 2/23/12 as 9% ABV with 51 IBUs - pours murky dark amber with tan head and thin lacing. Nose is nutty caramel with floral notes. Earthy qualities with sip. Fairly bitter with subdued sweetness. Kind of flat. Enjoyable.

You get the malts right away. Reminiscent of a scotch ale to me. Boozy but not overly so. Slightly sweet, creamy.

BOSSbrewer (1319) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Wow. Pours a golden amber. Lots of malty toffee notes. Very floral aromas that come through on the flavor. This is a big beer. Hat at Goehner's octoberfest.

JStax (2664) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle pour thanks to umich03jm. Pours a murky amber color with a thick, velvety head of beige foam. Aroma is toasty, like that of glazed pecans. Sweet. Taste is nutty with some soft prune sweetness floating in. Dry and sweet on the finish with a tingle of heat on the back of the throat.

DrSilverworm (5051) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2013
12oz bottle, shared with Alicia. From Party Town. Totally hazy, red / brown color. Good thin beige head. Decent arcs of lace. Bigger body. Good, light crisp carbonation. Clean, kind of dry finish, just a lightly sticky body. Good big red candy - fruity aroma. Lightly spicy. Tropical fruity / spicy hop. Bigger bitter taste, little sweet. Hint of alcohol bite in the finish, not bothersome, though. Not the most complex, but a tasty and relatively easy drinking old ale

Thanks Mike. Burnt red appearance, 3 finger off-white head. Nice mocha and oak nose. Taste is sweet and a bit of cheddar. crisp finish, has a barleywine sort of bitterness. rasisins and cinnamon as well
