NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Courtesy of Schwaiger <!-- P --> Aroma has sweet caramel malts. I may be getting subliminal messages from the label, but I also detect some sweaty fur. The body is a dark amber with a firm, thumb thick tan head. Fore is rich caramel malt, mild spicy bitterness then more toasty, bread like malts and grains. Has a stiff alcohol accented flourish in the finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Clear copper with a weak, beige head. Caramel notes, nutty, dried fruit, fennel, hops in the nose. Good body and a fairly thick texture. The flavor was spicy, citrusy. Pleasant but not exceptional.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 18, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep garnet, beautiful really, with a small tan head which mostly disappeared. Aroma of grass, earth, lightly malty, definite barnyard smell there too - like decaying bales of alfalfa. Some caramel. Drinks like a sweetened iced tea. More maltiness. Hops come out in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Pretty original, and fairly decent.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Potent caramely, toasty aroma with earthy, bitter hops. Deep copper body, fairly clear, with a medium tight light tan head. Herbal body with sweet caramel and bread, light carbonation, reminding me of a sweetened iced tea. A few sips reveal classic dark fruits (cherry, plum, red grape) and nuts lurking beneath the initial toast and caramels. Vinous. The parts are all here but they donít quite come together. Nevertheless, this is decent fare.

jake65 (3017) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Nice brown, rusty pour with a ample off-white head. Flavor is well balanced maltiness, caramels, nuts, and a roasty feel. Finish is smooth and the body is rather rich. A solid seasonal from Big Sky.

TheBeerGod (5687) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle courtesy of hopdog! Ruby body with a small tan head. Nose is malty and fruity with caramel notes, rich toffee, dark fruits, and brown sugar. It almost smells like a dessert. Canít place my finger on it, though. Taste is malty and slightly floral. Some caramel and toffee notes along with ripened fruits and soft nutty flavors. Body is creamy and smooth. Mild carbonation with an overall medium feel. Finishes with more caramel, bigger fruit notes, light hops, light toffee and toasty malts. Touch of brown sugar as well. Nice!

Bottle. Clear, ruddy brown colored beer with a moderate sized off-white head. Nice lacing is left behind. Aroma is pleasant, some caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar/molasses. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation level. Flavor is much the same as aroma, perhaps a little drab, lingering hops in finish. Decent if not spectacular.

Pailhead (6024) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Malty aroma of caramel and toffee with a touch of hops and metal. Pours a very dark amber with a decent off-white head with some staying power. Flavor is a watery caramel up front and some light chocolate in the middle. Finishes with some weak nutty metallic hops. Rather mediocre if you ask me.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Bought this because it was on clearance at BevMo. Didnít smell like much, sort of chocalatey I guess. Flavor is of caramel, toffee maybe some chocaolate, and a sort of musty, earthy flavor. Not bad, gives a nice warmth to the belly.

kramer (5503) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Indiana_Red. Pours a clear mahogany with a amall, fine-bubbled, off-white head. Low citric hop aroma over a sweet toffee and caramel malt base. Accent notes of tea and perfumy hops. Very fruity and malty flavor with a lightly bitter finish. A little too sweet for my tastes. Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and pleasant low carbonation composed of fine bubbles. Not a bad beer, but nothing outstanding. Overall, itís pretty sweet with an alcoholic kick that gets a little tiring on the palate by the end of the bottle.
