Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel-sugar with some earthy malts. Flavor is big caramel malts with a lingering hop and a creamy almost nouget. No real peatyness but this is still a solid and flavorful drinker.

DuffMan (8157) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. deep red-copper colour with a thick tan head. Aroma is heavy on bready, crusty malts, some burnt sugar, some chocolate, with hints of prunes or some kind of sweet dark fruit. Flavours are nicely malty too, with lots of breadcrusts, dark caramel, hints of tobacco, cocoa, and black cherries. Finish is dry and slightly tangy, not quite metallic. Maybe it was my mood (chillin’out, watching MI4 with my dad who I only get to see twice a year), but this beer really satisfied.

Frank (3508) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
This is a nice garnet brown brew w/ a fine and long-lasting head. Nose is pretty subdued but the sweetness and maltiness of this beer express themselves much more once tasted. The flavor is straightforward and nutty w/ just a hint of fruitiness but the texture is full bodied and creamy, which works quite well. This is one of those beers that doesn’t smell or taste like anything that special but is really good in other areas, which makes up for it.

maley1 (899) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2012
Dark amber pour with medium sized tan head. Aroma of caramel and ripe fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, ripe fruit, bread and slightly earthy. Nice and crisp mouthfeel, with just the right balance of sweetness. Everything came together perfect for this beer. Good beer.
