Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours a dark amber-green with a thin off-white head. Aroma is vanilla, booze, dark fruit. Tate is slightly sour, fruity, vanilla and booze. Lightly carbonated. Nice.

jcr (2365) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2011
750 ml. Hazy deep amber body. Frothy off-white head, slowly diminishing. Sweet aroma of raisin, cherry, caramel, alcohol with a backdrop of wood, brett and mustiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Dark fruit in the taste is overrun with bitterness and some medicinal notes and hot alcohol in the finish. Wood and peat notes with some grapefruit hoppiness in the background. This beer grew on me the more I drank it.

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle. Had this one in the cellar for quite a while and finally had the chance to open it up. Poured into a NB tulip glass a slightly hazed dark copper color with a light tan head. The aroma is malty with orange, slight booze note as well. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet start with a building level of citrus rind note. This is like a hoppy red with too much bitterness in the end. Laces nicely. Not a big fan of this one.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2011
bottle 7/3/11. hazy cherry brownish red with a small raw almond tinted head. cherries are in the aroma... but the rest is kinda meh... musty, caramel malt and some spice. the flavor lacks any defining character as well... it’s not bad, just...eh....too much caramel malty sweetness, not sour, a little grassy, a little spice, a little cherry and some tannic-like/cherry skin dryness on the finish. it feels too thick and doesn’t have enough carbonation. i don’t know what to make of it... confusing. 6/4/6/3/14

jjuf1853 (1284) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a murky clouded brown with a tan head. Very interesting aroma with some distinct hoppy rye notes. Flavor is quite nice with a good mix of sour, sweet and bitter. Good kick in the ass for the senses.

Beerman6686 (5378) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2011
This poured a semi murky red color with a beige head. Aroma was medium musty tart and caramel notes. Flavor was much the same, not much of what I was expecting a very strange and muddled beer.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Hazy orange-red, beige cover. Aroma is all oak and malt, caramel, toffee. Taste is oak, light tart finish. Odd.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Aged. Nice ruby/mahogany color. Solid tan head. Some oxidation, but expected. Some sour notes, overly ripe peaches, and strawberries, nice tartness.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Brown with some slight red tints and a medium sized yellow/white head. Aroma is complex with notes of pineapples, barnyard musk, and oak. Flavor is mostly sweet with a sour and fascinating finish. Raisins, caramel, sour cherries, with a spicy finish. Medium bodied.
