Pours a slightly hazy amber brown with 1 finger head that quickly dissipates leaving minimal lacing. Caramel aroma with a hint of toasted malt. A touch boozy. Hops are pine and herbal hops. Mildly sweet with moderate bitterness. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Long bittersweet finish. I like this brew. I’m sorry it didn’t get a better rating.

Bottle consumed multiple times from notes. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel/toffee malts, some fruitiness, some alcohol, hints of chocolate, mild to moderate bitterness. Medium body, smooth finish. Decent, but forgettable.

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.

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.
