Tmoney99 (10445) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy & toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were exceeded.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, citrus, some pine, wood, with some signs of this taking a turn downhill. I had this when it was fresh and it was different. Will update when I find the notes.

Skyview Tasting, 2/23/13. Brown beer. Sweet malt and fairly well hopped. Prominent alcohol flavor. Heavy palate, with some burn from the combination of hops and alcohol. Lightly sour.

750ml bottle shared with the group. Bottled May/5/11. Hazy dark amber/brown/reddish color. Nice thin beige/khaki head. Good dots of lace. Interesting malty nose, caramel, some dark fruit. Nice smooth kind of creamy texture. Bigger body. Nice sweet taste, not cloying, so it’s not too bad... Some vegetal flavor. Light smokiness. Little warmth in the finish, which I like.. Drinking pretty nice for how old it is. Good complexity.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thsnks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy amberish-brown with thin beige lacing. Smells sweet and BOOZY. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, but boozy.

Mora2000 (5539) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2013
The beer pours a red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of red malt and dirt. The flavor is full of dirt and earth, as well as some toffee and sugary sweetness. I also get some pine from the hops and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not a fan of red ales and this one was no exception.
