Sleuthdogg (31) - Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Appearance: Sláinte pours a dark brown with some blood red at the edges, especially when held to the light. It had an awesome three fingers worth of head that is khaki brown and is retained a fairly long time before it settles to a film on the beer. Lacing is light to moderate and carbonation does seem evident. Smell: Upfront I smell a sweet malty beer. I am getting toasted bread, caramel and some smoke in there, too. Taste: A bready toasted note with a sweet malty taste is the prominent flavors here. I’m also getting molasses and a brown sugar mixed with a finish of smoke and a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel: Creamy feel to this one. It does go down easy and has a nice amount of carbonation that seems to help cut some of the sweetness. There is no note of the alcohol. Overall: Not my favorite style I must admit but this one is enjoyable if you’re in the mood for a rich, sweet, malty beer.

Tap at Rattle and Hum, New York. Colour is deep dark brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Ripe fruits, some chocolate, some dryness and malts. Very nice. Can’t believe this is 5.2% because malty body is very good.

mfhennig (228) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Very bark reddish brown pour, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is mostly malt, a hint of toffee and caramel. Taste was kind of sour. Surprisingly chewy though. I’ll thank Joe for the beer, 1 of 24 different beers in the case. CW is a really solid brewery but this bottle didn’t have a date so I’m not sure of the age. I will give a shot if I see it in the store.

ARH (1049) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a shaker. The dark brown beer is topped by a light, yet dense, tan colored head that only retains a light amount and leaves no lace. The aroma is dark and smokey with notes of caramel, grains, fig, bread crust, and some more subtle notes of chocolate and coffee - the coffee strengthens by the end of the glass. The medium bodied beer is a nice balance between a moderate sweetness upfront with a slightly stronger, moderate bitter finish. It’s thin and smooth with a buzzy carbonation. Flavors of fig and roasted coffee dominate up front and it finishes with a pepper touch, caramel, and a light bitter wax. The aftertaste is mild with a light cloying wax and fig quality.
