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.

RSRIZZO (1847) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Had this beer on 11/12/2006. Aroma is a sweet, lightly roasted malt scent. Color is nice orange brown with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is rich, sweet and malty. starting with a full/medium body it goes down with a creamy rich feel. Finish comes on with a rich caramel malt flavor backed by very mild hop flavor and a nice bitterness. Its full and robust and leaves you feeling warm the way a Winter Ale should.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - 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.

Amber-brown pour leaving a small off white frothy head that mostly diminishes. Sweet malty flavor with light lacing in the glass leaving a creamy finish. MUSH ON you huskies! Only 3 of these in the store to take home....would like to "sample" a few more.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Clear light copper coloured body with a honey golow and a nice, thick dense off-white head with a nice lace leftover. Aroma of strong, bright citrus and grapefruit hops, yeast, apricots, coriander seed, curacao, honey and some pungent malt - very nice indeed. Medium-bodied; Biting hop flavour at first with a good malt backbone, some light yeast flavours, a touch of bright sweetness and a little alcohol flavour near the end. Good yeast and honey flavours to finish it off and a little light hoppiness in the aftertaste. Overall, a good beer - not too strong and not too weak, but a good beer for the season and a variation from the typical, roasted malt beer during this time of the year - nice! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 16-January-2011 for US$2.59 sampled at home in Washington on 12-March-2011.

574deadzone (885) - North Central, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2013
On tap at Wheatberry. Pours an amber orange with a thin eggshell head. Nose of herbal tea, earthy hops with some toffee and caramel notes. Mostly sweet with some bitterness attempting to balance. Lighter side of medium bodied, softer carb, with an earthy bitter finish. Decent brew, somewhat low-key, not super balanced, but easy to drink.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish-gold with white head. Taste floral, fruity, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
