COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Poured a mahogany color with a two-finger beige head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, hay, and a very faint vanilla. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly bitter, and a lingering salty sweet on the tongue. Overall, itís easy to drink, not offensive, and nothing special.

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

MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
Pours brown, pretty much translucent. There was no head, but there was a small lace. Aroma is honey, veggies (?), leaves (?!?!), pineapples (?!?!?!?) and wood (normal). Taste is somewhat leathery, earthy, with a healthy dose of caramel. Call me "undecided" in regards to this one. I just donít know what to say. Some very interesting aspects, some others a little... well... puzzling.

falco242 (304) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Dark amber pour, very light head. Aroma and taste is malty with a slight hop finish. Spice notes throughout and just a bit sweet. Not bad, but better winter brews.

Pint at The Tavern in Farmington, CT. Pour is dRk amber with a fading off white head and not much lacing. Smell is caramel some dark fruit and faint hops. Taste us sweet and malty with caramel, plum and spices. Very mildly hopped. True to many winter styles. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Pours a nice amber color with a medium off white head. Malt sweetness on the nose with some heavier fortified notes in the back. Scotch like notes with mild alcohol. A litte sourness was unexpected and didnít seem quite right. Overall not bad.
