Clear, dark woody brown. ginger is the predominant flavor over a sweetish caramel ale. Acidic, fruit. Good bittering. I’m such a sucker for gingerbeer. Finishes out with a side-of-the-tongue, spicy, hop bitterness. Medium body.

Slutfest! Light chocolate aroma? Flavor is light chocolate? Send out a search party, there seems to be a beer missing. Maybe some odd spicing. Light body. Shockingly little going on here.

Tap at brewery. Pours tawny brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted and caramel malts, earthy notes, plums, raisins, and faint ash. Flavor is dry malt base, light floral hop bitterness, dark fruit esters, and light caramel sweetness; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

A very dark amber, almost brown with a big fizzy head that quickly fades. The aroma is fruity sweet with a bit of spices. The flavor is similar with the spices showing up on the swallow. A bit to fizzy for me but quite refreshing.

19 nov 2013, tap at brewers art. Dark brown. Nose is dark toast, orange, and spices. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Finer comes out big time and lots of bitter orange peel in the finish. Reminds me of 90% chocolate and orange rind. Fun for a winter ale. Don't know how much I could drink though. It is quite bold.

750ml bottle. Pours dark mahogany color with a tan one finger head that dissipates slowly and leaves a wispy lace. Sweet Belgian candi sugar aroma with burnt caramel in the background. Taste is similar to the aroma with sweet Belgian candi sugar, and hints of fruits in the background. Slight tastes of orange peel and ginger. Very strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Hazy orange appearance with an average size head that left good lacing on the glass. Yeasty aroma developed as it reapproached room temerature. An herbal, pepper spice taste that was balanced by a fruity, green apple flavor. Slightly bitter, dry finish.
