Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Deep clear amber color. Very light carbonation and medium bodied. Hints of chocolate/caramel nose. Starts slightly malty, some bittersweet chocolate, finish is reasonably clean. 5.3% ABV is not a strong ale. $4.35 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2006
Very dark roby body that is almost brown. The head is foamy and slightly yellowish colored. There is an aroma of iced tea along with some apples and caramel. There wasn’t much else to smell. The taste had some old tea along with apple core and some burnt coffee in the finish. Not bad, but it needs a little more character. Otherwise, a decent brew.

badgerben (4491) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Brown color with no head. Good malt aroma with a little nuttiness. Mainly malt taste but a very bittersweet mix. Some fruit and yeast on the finish. Quite drinkable.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 [bottle] Pours a dark brown color- tastes pretty malty. Dark malts, some light fruits. Moderately sweet- full mouthfeel. Enjoyable, for sure. Nothing too exciting, however.

TheBeerGod (5315) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Ruby body with a small tan head. Nose is fruity (berries, light apple, hint of cherry), malt, and light wood. Light flowery note as well. Taste is malty and sweet with a dulled fruit flavor - sort of like unsweetened apple chips. Light cocoa, flowers, and some toasty notes. Body is medium with a dense carbonation. Finishes with more fruit notes, cocoa, toasty malts, light caramel and a bit of wood.

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Brown with ruby highlights, quite clear, decent head faded fast. Aroma was a bit roasty, with a touch of apple and sulfur. Flavor matched the aroma, and some chocolate notes came through as well. Struck me more as a bitter than a strong ale. Perhaps it is better on cask.

treadyroc (149) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours a dark, coppery brown with a very nice, frothy head that diminishes quickly, but not entirely. The taste is malty, but doesn’t finish entirely clean. Very smooth, though, & enjoyable.

Lunkie (1441) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2006
Sweet malt hop aroma with flowers. Clear dark brown colour with good to fair head and lacing. Sweet malt flavour with flowers. Smooth palate.

thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Pour is a ruby red with no head. Aroma is malty and dark fruit like a plum. Flavor is malty and strong. Lots of dark fruits and stong hops make this beer one to look for. Strange name but lots of flavor make this one to find.
