Poured dark amber with a thick tan head. The head retention was very good. Very good aroma with courant, butterscotch, caramel, rye, citrus and graitfruit. The aroma drew me right in. Taste had a great malt and hop balance with the caramel really standing out. Mouthfeel was one of the best ever with a tickle on the palate and the caramel malts working so effectively. I have only positive things to say about this beer. The best I’ve had so far from Bear Republic. I’m just glad I can get this relatively near by.

Pours a deep amber / copper with caramel maltiness and citrus hops. Bought it a BevMo in Pasadena. THanks to that couple for suggesting Bear Republic.

Great beer from the Bear Republic. Very drinkable. Did not feel that strong of a beer. A little sticky with a little bit of smokiness. Hoppy balance.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
bottle. mahogany-copper body, fluffy off-white head and a sticky lace. sweet hoppy aroma - thick resin... a light yeast background. starts out spritzy and quite malt accented but then the hops hit you! It’s not overwhelmingly hoppy which makes it a little easier to attain balance. thicky resin, creamy yeasty body. long sticky hoppy finish.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2005
Pours clear dark red with probably the rockiest most ample tanned head that I have ever seen. The beer is actually pretty tricky to pour due to the amount and retention of the firm suds. Aroma is stong of citrus/grassy hop and equalled with sweet toffee like malts. Mouthfeel is excellent and creamy and the carry over from nose to palate is almost uncut. Lots of invert sugar to the point that it tastes almost English. Hops are always present, but not as forward as predicted. Wheaty, chocolate, toffee, and lovely bittersweet hops. Dry finish.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Dark red with a fluffy tan head. Hoppy aroma. Incrediable balance. I could taste the hops throughout; mostly at the start and finish. However the body has nice lush malts. Packs a great hop finish. Mouthfeel is almost creamy due to the malt body. I could feel the hops drag across my tongue as well. The malts are sweet, but balanced by the hops. Outstanding brew. The finish is rather dry and seems to become more dry with each sip.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle, Cafe Volo. Dark orange/brown pour. Huge tan head. Really interesting strong scotch ale type of aroma - hops and malt! Really strong sweet taste. Potent. Remarkably well balanced for being this aggressive. At times it can be a little too much, but this is a wonderful strong ale. I prefer the Rye only because it added a little more flavour and complexity, but this is still and excellent beer.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Pours a dark brown color with reddish tints and a large tan head. Harsh earthy hop aroma. Overly aggressive and harsh earthy hop flavors. If this was a wine I might think that it just wasn’t ready to drink yet. Unimpressed and dissappointed.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2005
On tap at the brewery...which makes it taste better of course. Nice red brown pour with a decent sized head. Caramel, cholcolate, hops and some citrus....and it tastes just wonderful.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Reddish brown color, medium sized white head. Citrusy hop aromatics. Malty sweet nose, followed by a huge caramel malt flavor with equally large Cascade type hops. Finish is a slight lingering sweetness muted by a building bitter mouthcoat. Mouthfeel is pretty lackluster for an American strong.
