Light hazy amber with a thin, fine head that fades quickly. Bready aromas accompanied by light caramel and a sublte noble hop spice; surprising Belgian-esque phenols. Full bodied with caramel and light anise, low noble hop flavor with medium finishing bitterness. A seriously underrated beer in my opinion.

demitriustown (1177) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2016
12 oz bottle: Aroma haas got a nice pungent resin like hop note with a light grainy malt backing. Appearance is a ever so slightly amber golden with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is mildly bitter with an intermingling play between the hops and the malt. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a light hop aftertaste. Overall, Pretty darn good stuff. Cheers!

Deep and dark flavor of malt, raisin, caramel, cherry. Light hops with mild bitterness through the finish that thins out quite a bit.

glennmastrange (2586) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of roasted, nutty and caramel, moderate herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with toffee, brown sugar, paper, and faint sherry and spices in the background. Head is huge, rocky, off-white with excellent but slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear copper. Flavor starts moderately sweet and finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a soft to lively carbonation. A pretty good English Strong Ale from Buffalo Bill’s, a first for me.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Amber bodied with a slender white head, this has an aroma of dried stone fruit with a touch of old wood and mayhaps a hit of zest. Very thick mouthfeel here. The taste is much like the nose. There is the addition of some earthy, piney, and zesty bitterness, not strong, but loud enough so that I take notice. Not having access to this site as I write, I’m not sure what this is (i.e., how it will be categorized), but I find myself liking it more as I drink on.

MarkSachon (872) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours just fine with a proper head. A rather weak body delivers little taste. The alcohol at a supposedly higher level failed to stimulate.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a murky copper color with a dense cream head than lingers. Caramel, toffee, prunes, raisins, and figs form the aroma. Flavor is lacking behind the bigger aroma. Has a bit of cherry and dates, but it’s predominantly dry, with a touch of tea-like flavor at the dry, bitter finish. Body is moderate, with moderate to low carbonation.

Bottle. Clear gold with a large white head that left quickly. Nose is floral hops light pine, and caramel. Flavor was lightly bitter with white pepperiness.
