I saw this at a liquor store once and I thought I needed to get it because Iíve never seen it before, but we went to the store for something else do I didnít get it. Since then, Iíve been regretting not getting it and have been trying to go back to that store, but the problem is that itís far away. Then I find myself at bells brewery and they have it on tap so I have to get it. It is a very nice dark amber red color. It smells and tastes like caramel malts. Thatís all I really tastes and itís a pretty good beer. Iím not sure if is buy a six pack but I could see myself getting this at a bar again.

Had on tap at Bells Eccentric Cafť. Pours an amber brown color with no real head. Aroma is similar to that of a brown ale malts mostly maybe a hint of brown sugar. Flavor is sweet malts and sweet sugar mostly with a hint of maybe caramel either A LOT of booziness. This tastes like the 8% it is. Overall it is a great beer not my favorite but it holds its own against a lot of other brewers best.

Bottle from JStax! Pours deep amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is fresh and fruity stone fruits, lightly juicy juice. Drinks like a fruity, malty dream. Lightly sweet, bit of a bite, smooth mouthfeel. No hint of booze. Could lift this all day.

Bottle pulled from my ícellarí. From February of last year. Poured a bright deep mahogany with a thin off white head. Huge malty sweet aroma full of caramel, cherries, molasses, wheat and brown sugar. Flavors were on par, lots of caramel, sweet cherry, burnt sugar, touch of wheat and molasses. Velvety, slightly full mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Damn, I forgot how good this stuff is. This may change my bias on the style altogether. Awesome stuff.
