muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 11, 2007
2007 edition (best before 4/08), 12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (December 2007), consumed at cellar temperature froma Chouffe tulip. A huge, very smooth light tan head fills 2/3 of the glass, decaying slowly atop the translucent pale caramel body.....nose is mostly caramel-vanilla sweetness, faint alcoholic hint, light toasted grains, simple but effective enough....the flavor profile is fairly typical: caramel, lightly toasted grain, a hint of smokiness....the finish is alas more than a little cardboardy, and there just isnít enough body here, itís watery and weak all around....a touch of lingering bitterness at the finish, faint cherry tartness and a bit of sourness. Not very impressive.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Deep copper appearance with an average size, off white head and scant lacing. Muted, malty, toasted grain aroma with a hint of chocolate early on. Gently hopped, sweet caramel malt flavor leading to a good bit of earthiness, especially towards the finish. 2007 bottled version.

morrdt (681) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Single bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville, NC - although now available in Jacksonville, FL. 2007 bottle marked best before April 2008. ours a murky brown color with a slight tan head that lasts and lasts. Aroma is mostly malts. what seems like roasted nuts. Taste is typical scotch ale, a slight bitter finish. Not bad, nothing special.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle; poured a clear, reddish brown with a light brown head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, roasted malt and faint citrus. Flavor was largely disappointing. Malty with some peat like and roasted aspects; some nuts. The flavor just wasnít all that great.

cryfreedmb (113) - Ocean, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Deep red pour with a good size light brown head. Aroma is of malt and alcohol. Flavor is of malt, peat with earthy undertones. What I donít like about this brew is the flavor of alcohol that ripís through it. So far the worst Brooklyn offering I have had.

malrubius (1578) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2007
2007 12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Garnet red with with dense head. Faint aroma of malt and sugar. Very malty flavor with brown sugar and fruitiness. Very mild English hop undertones. Medium-full body and medium-low carbo. Harkens back to the days before hop was king. Some peat smokiness would improve complexity.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Brown clean, caramel pour. Caramel notes on nose and taste. Some malts, and sugar. a little nutty, and a big nutmeg with some acidic features. Not really "winterí for me, but whatever.

SSSteve (3661) - - NOV 29, 2007
pours a clear burgundy/brown with a large yellowish head. aroma is that of a good brown ale with lots of toasty malts, and nuts. not smoky, but the flavor is very nice and malty with similarities to the aroma and hints of buttery toffee.
