12 oz bottle. Pours a deep ruby brown with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is surprisingly fruity, some dark maltiness comes in with sweet caramel, but it has some cherry and candied fruit characteristics. Flavor again has a lot of fruit in it, very estery with some sweet sugary caramel notes and some biscuit flavors. Finishes with a bit of earthiness and a softer fruit finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Definitely not quite what I expected, very little peaty earthy notes, lots of fruity caramel notes, strange brew though not altogether awful, just not per the style.

Ughsmash (7408) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Poured clear, rich amber wtih a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel, vanilla, and molasses with some smoky accents.. on the sweet side, but enjoyable. The flavor found more of the caramel, molasses, and some honey at the core.. earthy bitterness, vanilla bean, and light campfire smoke extended outward.. toasted, very sweet, syrupy malts on the finish (plus a touch of earthy bitterness). Medium-bodied and a bit too sweet on the palate.. scratchy and kind of sharp at times.. just an OK feel and flow. Solid brew.

Lifeless copper with a medium slowly fading tan head and a ring lacing. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar, malt and light candi sugar. Taste of toffee, malt and brown sugar with a clean finish. Just ok.

12oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Dark brown in color, with a thin head. Nice roasty malt flavor light with hops. Light malt flavors some toffee and caramel. The overall this beer was dry and easy drinking.

Pours a dark brown; thin head which dissipates quickly. Cloudy red when held up to light. Smell is slightly musty; strong roasted malts, bits of sweet caramel, toffee. Taste continues on the sweet/malty themes, a little bit tangy with more caramel and toffee. Medium body; light for style. Slightly stick/syrupy, moderate carbonation.

Bottle; poured a dark auburn-ruby color with a tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and fruit. Flavor was sweeter than expected with some dark fruit, fruit, caramel and maybe some cocoa and earth. A bit simplistic.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
tap @ Hamiltons. Pours sepia dark brown with an off white head. Great thick maltiness and a small bit of peat. Good chocolates. This might be my favorite from this brewer!

phaleslu (7831) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Draft at International Tap House-Soulard. Pours a dark reddish-brown color, clearer around the edges, with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, dust, raisins, wood, and peat. Flavor of sweet caramel malts, raisins, dust, earth, wet leaves, brown sugar, and toast. The flavor ends a little too quickly. Medium-bodied, though it finishes lighter, with mild carbonation and a sweet, earthy mouthfeel. Not bad but nothing special.
