From a growler shared by jcwattsrugger. Pours a deep garnet with a beige head. Sweet malty nose. Caramel notes. Flavor is all caramel malt with some brown sugar. Maybe some honey roasted peanuts. Full bodied in the mouth & quite warming. Nice.

Pint on tap. Deep amber-light chestnut color with a disc of foam. Nose is caramel and cherry cola, with hints of toasted nut and milk chocolate. Tastes of caramel, cocoa, toast, and hints of cherry, citrus and dry grass. Near-medium body is balanced pretty well and has light-medium carbonation.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from Greenlife in Chattanooga. Clear brown, huge white head. Malty, toasty and fresh bread aroma. Flavor is lightly toasty, some spicy notes. A little nutty, as well. Maybe it benefited from lowered expectations, but I enjoyed this more than I expected.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draught at the Hamilton Place location. Pours bold brownish red with off-white head. The aroma is malty sweet with maraschino cherry, almond, fruity sweetness, and just a touch of alcohol, and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is harshly toasty with some caramel sweetness and a fairly strong yeast bite. Desembodied herbal bitterness. Meh.

SpringsLicker (3467) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Clear medium brown with a small soapy head of white. Some malt in the aroma. Some sourness that shouldn’t be there as well. Not much flavor for a style that should present lots of malty goodness. Very disappointing.
