Bottle. Poured a murky amber color with a smaller white head, the head did retain throughout the entire beer. Aroma was biscuit, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor was malts, some tart in the finish. Not a whole lot to this beer. Very weak and watery, thin body.

I thought this was fairly decent. Has a slight stickiness to it and sweetness as well, but pretty drinkable, about two at a time. Surprised.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Poured a copper/auburn color with not much head. Aroma of overripe fruit, wheat and not much else really. Flavor of caramel and really ripe fruit. Not much sugar or toffee really. Boring.

Daytonbeer (582) - Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Pours a dark copper color with off white head. Little lacing. Aroma is very small with wheat and malts. Taste is also lite. Slightly sweet with malt and belgium yeast. Drinkable, but not very impressive. More of a winter ale than a belgium or abbey ale.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Pours a deep brown color with aroma of roasted nuts. Taste is mildly hoppy, with hints of bread and nuts. This beer was a good mouthful. A decent winter lager.

A very good ale! I wish this was available year around! I know they sold out to the Big Brewer..butthey nailed this one. Great color but the taste is what makes it.

bkurtz (724) - PERU - JAN 10, 2011
Poured a hazy copper with a quickly dissipating white head. Caramel malts and spice notes(coriander?) and a decent finish. MillerCoors makes this? There is hope. Not a bad beer.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Pours a clear, dark old copper with a tall, fluffy, beige head. Aroma is cereal, stale grain, sweet malt, a touch of roast and dark caramel. Flavor is toasted cereal, sweet malt, caramel, roasted nuts and an odd, slightly sour grainy dishwater finish. Light to medium bodied, somewhat creamy on entry and off dry and really chalky to the finish. This was not a very enjoyable beer, the odd grainy dishwater taste seemed to persist on my palate the more I drank. Before that flavor became constant it was a fairly inoffensive brew.

Red-brown. Caramel malts, some sweetness, toasted malt. A little "fake." Flavor is a touch on the sweet side but finishes with roasted malt in a very light manner. Not a very good example of the style, yet drinkable.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear, deeper amber-ruby colored body with a finger-width, frothy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweeter caramel and dark fruit with some toffee, toasty bread, and a few spicy nuts. Much better than I anticipated this being. Flavor is alright. Some thinner, sweeter caramels with a few toffees and toasted bread malts. A bit nutty, a few spices, and some dark fruits with a light straw bitterness as this finishes mostly dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light-medium body and medium-high carbonation. Overall, not that bad of a beer. Very simple, but it has a few decent things going on. I’ve definitely had worse.
