stevoj (2166) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Smooth and crisp malt with a slight hops snap. Clear amber with a small, but lasting foamy head. Hops linger on the palate. Some elements of caramel and gingerbread, although body is not heavy. A bit richer, but not a winter warmer.

ttoadee (652) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Deep gold pour, off white head. Nose is caramel malt and alcohol. Sweet. Middle is alcohol & toffee. Finish is bitter, but not overly so. I am a little confused.

tectactoe (1895) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Super hazy golden-orange with some yellow trim; packed with tons of sediment that float all around. Creamy, beige head settles fast without leaving any lacing behind. Aroma is super malty; toasted caramels, mild spices, and a deep seeded, musty & earthy aroma. Some sweet fruits in the background, dates & prunes. Taste is amplified with plenty of caramel malts, spices, esters, sharp prune & grape fruitiness, almost wine-like. Phenol alcohol noticeable. Deep earthy tones, almost a dirt flavor. Okay, but a little too malty and sweet for my liking.
