Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Huge light brown head. Dense. Malts, light sweetness and light chocolate notes in the aroma. Hops, fruit, caramel and herbs in the flavour. Is refreshing and dry. Light bitter with a vague malt tone in the end. Pleasant.

The color is deep reddish-brown. It is very dark indeed with a tall white head. The head is fine and light. It has a sweet malt aroma, a touch sour, and very fruity. With chocolate and caramel. There is a rich malt flavor, with chocolate, caramel and a bit of sour as well (old?). It is nicely roasted. There is not much hop; It has a medium to heavy body and high carbonation. There’s a roasted malt finish in the sourness remains. A touch of berries, maybe. It is very nice, rich malty and interesting. Nice balance is a bit bitter is that hops or the myrtle?

BBB63 (5740) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Provided by MikeMac while at The Oak Cafe, thanks: Copper hue with a small fizzy head and minimal lacing. The aroma has notes of an old wool sweater, dry herbs and grains, apple and a hint of corn. The taste is malty and sweet with some fruit background. Very herbal throughout and that got boring. Cardboardy finish and feel, soft and easy going. A very average brew in the end.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2007
From a 12-oz bottle shared by Badgerben poours a redish amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissolves toa film and white ring. Aroma of caramel malt, some earthy herb spice, a touch of roasted nuts and nutmeg. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, some mincemeat raisin and some flowery hops. Finish is semi-dry with a mild bitter aftertaste.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle brought back from the brewpub. Dark red color with a medium head. Slight aroma of wintergreen. As Joebrew mentioned, a little like Christmas. Nutty and caramel taste. Sweet malt. Quite nice.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2007
More from Badgerben. Light red color. No hop presence in this beer, and that is fine for the style. Quite dry. Maltly, but fairly bitter, and a bitter is actually what I thought it was. An enjoyable session beer.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2003
Disappointing. A mildly malty UK ale aroma. Dreadful label, decent medium-dark brown-red brew. Cidery, and somewhat homebrew tasting. There's a reason that hops have largely replaced bog myrtle for bittering. Medium-light sweetness, some cocoa, but generally indistinct. A little on the thin side.
