COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

From notes. Pours a dark copper, with a one finger head that fades quickly to a thin ring. Despite just having a thin ring of foam, there’s quite a bit of lacing left on the glass. Smell; very sweet aroma up front, and mildly fruity. There’s not much of a peat or smokey quality in the aroma, but still not bad. Taste; sweet caramel malts, with a little bit of brown sugar are the dominant flavors, as well as a mild earthiness. In the finish there’s a little bit of a spicy hop bite. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a low carbonation, giving this a rather smooth feel to it. Drinkability is good if you can handle your beers on the sweet side. For me, I would only be able to have one at a time due to the sweetness.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - FEB 12, 2007
Nice, Purchased a single for $1.50 at Whole Foods in Falls Church, VA. Pours a watery brown with a toasted yellowy head. Smells of winter spices, maple and chocolate. Taste is also sweet chocolate, maple syrup, nuts and wintery spices. Full bodied but not overwhelming, even a tad woodsy. Decent brew.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Clear fairly deep copper-amber, small beige creamy/bubbly head. Dry toasted caramel and generic hop bitterness, hint of alcohol and maybe a touch of cocoa powder. Taste is not bad - plenty of sweet roast caramel malt, but not as dry as the aroma, cereal grain and not much alcohol at all - nice smooth buttery sweet malt finish. Sticky, average body, not much hop or astringency to balance what is essentially a slightly spicy malt treat - but I’m not complaining. I’ll drink more of these.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle. Copper-brown, with a thick, loose, off-white head. Spicy aroma, with a evident alcohol. Medium body, with a heavy malty flavor that fades into a metallic finish. No alcohol in the taste. A bit too spicy for me.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Draft from DRE. Medium brown pour with aroma of caramelly malt, some brown sugar, nutmeg, hops. Tastes caramel malty coupled with slight brown sugar and X-mas spicy notes, and a twinge of finishing hops.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle. Malty and lightly herbal nose with caramel and a touch of dust. Looks to be the he redder side of amber combined with the browner side of copper, with a short tan head. Crisp mf and a medium body with light alcohol. Cherry accents on the thick layer of malt, caramel and light earth, definitely chewy. Light nuts and red berry. Light, natural fruity sweetness with really no bitter- or sourness. Tasty!
