Different I like this one. Nice malts on in the aroma with a very subtle bit of fruit in there. You can also smell the sweetness. I like the malt in this one pronounced up front and stays with you in the aftertaste. Beautiful dark deep ruby red color. Medium bodied with a bit of head which does not stick around long at all. Nice one would have again.

guzzler67 (1548) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2009
Mahogany appearance with a small, beige head and decent lacing. Late developing yeasty, fruity, malty aroma. Taste was spicy, with dark fruit and grainy, roasted malts. Medium bodied, well carbonated, generously hopped mouthfeel leading to a long lasting finish.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Sampled in Lexington. Goes down really nicely. Has a bit of a caramel aftertaste / bite. A nice lacey head that lingers. Overall a very well made brew.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle, #465. Brown pour with medium head. Malty and sweet aroma. Rich flavor of malts and dark fruit. Complex flavor. Curious about what the 8° means.

dark brown with moderate brown head. estery nose with some dark candi notes. flavor starts off nice with some dark caramel tastes and some dark fruity esters. the problem comes in with the hops, the bitterness and flavor are too overwhelming, though clean, any lingering depth is erased and it threatens style guidelines. not an awful example

Proteus93 (65) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours a very deep murky brown, with red highlights, letting just the littlest bit of light through. Head is thick and frothy, lasting forever. Very nice. Bready, some caramels and raisiny scents. A touch of hops come through on a deep sniff. A complex, but not overpowering aroma. Quite a nice balance through the body... quite similar to the aroma, with the malty bread-like, caramel tastes. A note of hops and darker fruits, with an added spicy alcohol note on the finish. Becomes maybe just a tad sweet on the overall finish, but not too badly. A touch of a medicinal taste in there that seems a little out of place. A nice, full, and round body... a little on the sticky syrup side, but again, not horribly bad at all. This is a good effort... perhaps not quite as spectacular as their others, but still a decent abbey-style ale, nonetheless. For its class, it has quite the competition, but it comes out alright. I’m glad I got 6, and look forward to it again on tap, as well.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Sample at the Day Before Labor Day party. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium thin dark beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of dark malt and yeast, and some mild spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of doughy malt, spices and yeast. The finish is dark fruits and malt, leaving behind a mild sweet spice aftertaste. Above average overall.
