walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Brown with offwhite head. Fruity sweet nose of raisins and dark maple syrup. Rich, malty flavor with a hint of sour twang to offset the sweetness and provide an even finish. Very tasty.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Tap. Pours a clear light amber with a decent white head aboard. Nose is slightly spicy and malty. Flavor is predominantly a fruity/malty taste; slightly sweetened, watered-down, holiday spice, iced tea. Finish was sorta funky and did not maintain those nuances that were experienced in the beginning. This was just OK, nothing special.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Ruddy brownish, big beady head. English ale-malt aroma - tannic, leathery, metallic, cereal, dried fruits. Very much in the English style -- my guess was that this was somewhere between a brown ale and an ESB. I could drink a mess of this. Cherries and vanilla cream, tannic, lightly sweet, lightly floral. Session weight. Cherry cereal finish. Moderate bittering, justly done. Another quality brew from this brewery.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2006
On tap at Hop Devil Grillle. Pours a nice clear deep amber with a fluffy off beige head and nice lace. Aroma is toasty, with nutty malts, thick caramle malts and surprisingly hoppy for the style but is more on the herbal and tea-like hop side. Good full bready and toaasty malt side, herbal hops and a light bitter finsih- somewhat peaty and light smoke as it warms with a light fruity character. Good smooth mouthfeel at first- but becomes a bit slick towards the end.

Moghgany in color with a thin bone color head. lacing was minimal but there. A nice malty aroma with caramel notes. Some malty notes on the inital flavor but finished with a hoppy but. Some spice to it. good but nothing special.

Huge foamy caramel colored head atop a copper-orange brew. Aroma is cherry-wheat, fruity. Very spicy, roasted cherry malted flavor. Finish is cherry and pepper.
