HogTownHarry (6375) - 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 Iím not complaining. Iíll drink more of these.

dkoonce (911) - Peopleís 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 (9998) - 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 (5618) - 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!

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark coppery orange color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with malts and some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty at the beginning with a slightly smokey and roasted middle and some caramel and bitter hops at the finish. Slightly tinny.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Translucent brown-red color with a medium sized rocky white head. Rich malty aroma, caramel and toffee, with a heavy buttery diacetyl component. Ruddy caramel, mild toastiness, and a mellow earthen tinge in the flavor. Faint smokiness in the finish with residual stale caramel. Large diacetyl buttery pantina that threatens to overshadow the more delicate flavors. Mouthfeel is a rich medium, somewhat chewy.
