OldMrCrow (1825) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle purchased in Gunnison.

Actually the best beer of the night. But the others were Bud Light Chelada, Gunnison ESB, Steamworks Diablo -- so this wasn’t a particularly stiff competition.

Pours light gold, decent head. Mild biscuity aroma, hints of hops whispering around the edges. Soft subtle flavor, again biscuit malts coming forward, a little bit grassy, subtle SNPA-style hops (several times diluted) coming in on the tail end.

Described as such, it sounds pretty awful, but this actually wasn’t bad. Completely drinkable.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2007
12 ounce bottle from BeerandBlues2
Pours red with a bit of carbonation. Pretty much clear. A thin layer of off white foam.
The aroma is all malt. Very biscuity. No hops. What up wit dat?
Malt is way upfront, but there’s a neutral bitterness. that makes it very drinkable.
Medium/light body. Below avarage carbonation. Dry finish.
It doesn’t taste bad. I’d say its boring, but it’s a million times better the lots of shitty beers I’ve had.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 14, 2007
(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=9 target=blank>BeerandBlues2, thanks Brad!) Really not bad...Pours clear coppery amber with about 1/2" of biscuit head. Aroma of egg and vanilla maltiness with some light pine as head recedes. Palate surprisingly has some decent heft, is a bit prickly. Pretty soft and smooth. Lacing is fine lacey sheets, kind of nice. Flavor is caramel, egg and vanilla maltiness overlain by light pine. Develops a nice fruity taste also as it warms. Light-medium bitterness which carries through finish and into aftertaste. I enjoyed this and am surprised by the generally lousy reviews so far.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, frothy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, straw), average hops (flowers, perfume), average yeast (dough, broth) with notes of apple and plum. Medium bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Reddish copper color with decent head. Biscuity malts. A bit chalky and more bitter than I would expect. Could use some work.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Pour is clear light amber with a thin almost nonexistant white head...light grainy nose, but not very aromatic in the first place...lightly sweet biscuity flavors...thin and watery with not much going on...

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Soft and light with a slight alcoholic nip. Flowery and citrusy hops in the background. Weak sweetness. Drinkable, but not complex or exciting.
