crossovert (8680) - Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden pour with a slowly-forming foamy head that sticks for ahwile after it finally forms. The arom ais hoppy with herbs, a sherry note, and some orange peel. Flavor is very english-hoppy/yeasty, herbal, earthy, some savory notes, birch beer note, orange peel, toasted malt, slightly watery mouthfeel, dry and bittersweet finish. Definitely stuff to savor on a cold day.

3fourths (8480) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Clear ruby red, sweet cherry and wood aroma, like a cherry flavored liquor. Biting cherry flavor with an even smooth palate and a crisp finish. Very sweet, and pleasant.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Thanks to Jake for another winner. This one pours clear deep coppery ruby colored, with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, sour mashy fruit, hops, figs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes caramel malty as a base, with hints of figgy fruit, brown sugar, spices, and plum notes.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours dark red with off white head, aroma is full of caramel and bread malt. Taste up front is sweet caramel and spice with some bready malt that finishes sweet. Not bad.

BMan1113VR (7896) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 29, 2011
On tap. Seemed aged. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are of esters, orange, marmalade, bready and a light caramel backbone. Flavors are bready, marmalade. Some decent bitterness. Quite muted. Tastes like this could be an old keg, some oxidized notes as well. Medium bubbles, soft carbonation.

deyholla (7613) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a nice grassy hop note with some notes of toast and caramel. Flavor has much more of a toast note up front with an earthy wood note throughout and a bit of grassy hops.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
Dark amber with a moderate white head. Butterscotch toffee aroma. Toasty toffee malt dominates the palate with some nutty marzipan undertones and a fruity hop note in the finish. Nice.

BVery (7465) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear orange pour with a smaller head. Aroma is toasted bread, caramel, and kinda funky. Medium palate. Taste is burnt caramel and very hoppy - a bit unbalanced.

Ibrew2or3 (7333) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Pours a crystal clear amber with nice off white head. The aroma is rich roasted malts, mild piney to grapefruit hops and sweet malts. All well melded and inviting. I also get some grainy malts too. The taste begins with mild pine to grapefruit hop bitterness followed by chewy caramelized malts and some sweeter maltiness. Roasty malts seem to build some toward the finish. Nice offering.
