Pours a very pretty red with a decent light tan head. No lacing. Aroma is very slight, but very pleasant. Taste is ok. Very malty but still tastes kind of thin. Overall, very pleasant and good session beer.

ciaranc (847) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 12 oz bottle from Redmonds. Clear, dark amber, thin, bubbly off white head, doesn?t last. Strange vegetal notes in the aroma, boiled cabbage and spice. These flavours carry through to the taste and really aren?t pleasant. Heavy, fizzy, with a longp finish.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 31, 2014
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light red brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of brown malt hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Aroma of sweet malty notes predominates with a few spicy notes. Flavour has a slight metallic edge over a pleasant maltiness. Body is pretty thin for a winter ale.

Dark copper pour, some tan lacing caramel and grainy aroma. Sweet grainy flavor with hints of caramel back end tastes a bit like shine lol good beer.

PorterPounder (5473) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Jacksonville, FL - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, thick brown with a sticky khaki colored head, nice web of lacing. Aroma has some nice Christmas spice accents, a touch of horehound candy, Flavor has some molasses hints, a touch of dates, some chewy toffee notes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Hits the spot on this cold winter’s evening!

From a bottle into a pint. Dark amber brown with light tan head. A little spice and malt on the nose a sweetness to the finish. Not their best effort.

Pours dark translucent brown. Almost imperceptible spiced aromas. Tastes of malty bitterness with hints of cinnamon and tarragon. Not a very interesting Ale.
