Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear brown with a fine, beige cream head. Some sweet malts on the nose, nips of bread, caramel and cocoa.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep dark cola with ruby highlights and a medium sized tan head which drops off quickly. Thick and malty, big sweet old malt, plum and prune. Long smooth finish, nice lingering caramel sweetness. Nicely done.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle shared by kmweaver on 7/3/08: Porus a transparent dark copper with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel malts with a touch of maple syrup and light tartness. Body starts with about average fullness and some sweet dark caramel ntoes along with a touch of light fruits and mild earthy bitterness. Has some milk chocolate and light fruity tartness toward the finish.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Bottle shared by kmweaver. Nice raw maple syrup and wood aromas in the nose, with the flavor more of a strange and twangy resinous cherry and moss, some green, wet, damp moss throughout, stale apple and plum, some sort of semi-sweet-maybe-spoiled maple note, somewhat astringent and flabby on the tongue.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
22oz bottle, courtesy of jjpm74 (I think). Thanks, John! Pours a dark cola-brown color; light tan head with decent, fine-bubbled lacing. Loads of maple syrup and caramelized brown sugar in the aroma; so much maple syrup; generic bitterness and a soft vanilla note. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; lots of maple syrup, again, caramel, and dried fruits; slightly watery at the edges, but dense maltiness otherwise; drinkable stuff. Medium mouthfeel: maple syrup, caramel, and dried fruits; some lingering sweetness.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2008
22 ounce bottle from jjpm74. Pour is sort of a cherry cola or Dr Pepper brown/red with a big frothy beige head. The nose comes of very cardboard-ish, along with some hints of dried cherries, caramel, and maple. The flavor has some cardboard character too. Also over cooked caramel, and dark honey. Just enough hops to make it bitter. On the light side of medium body. Average carbonation. Dry finish. If I would have realized that this was only a 6% beer, I’d have drank it long ago. Not sure it would have made a difference though. Just OK.

Tannic. Ruddy brown. Fruity caramel tones, dark fruit, syrup. Pretty fair.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bomber. Pours brown with an off white head. Smells of caramel, roses, raisins. Tastes swet and chewy with some nice spicy elements. Not as full bodied as most of their other beers, but good.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2007
Pours a clear brown color with a ring of creamy, light brown lace. Interesting aroma and flavor of peated malt and caramel. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2007
Dark ruby body with a long lasting medium beige head. Thick caramel with molasses. As it warms up, raisins and a touch of sour grapes join in. The grassy hops are very much present and nicely balance the whole thing. A little citric note in the finish makes it feel lighter than it really is. Full body with an appropriate medium carbonation. More hoppy than what I’m used from the Old Ale style but who cares, this is a very nice beer. Professional stuff, it’s called Pluto but this is no Mickey Mouse beer.
