Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours a dark copper with tan head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit (plums). Very sticky mouthfeel. Very malt forward picking up the more earthy notes. Slight hop bitterness in the middle with an ever lingering sweet fruit/toffee finish. Flavors cling to the roof of the mouth and very slowly dissipate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nocturne (1156) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
355ml bottle. Dark reddish brown shade. Short head. Aroma is toasted malts, molasses, light hops. Similar taste. Leans slightly towards a cherry and almond-like flavour. A smooth, creamy feel to the palate. Decent winter ale but nothing too exciting.

Shark_Pants (449) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours cola red/brown with decent aerated ivory head. Sweet molasses aroma, with spices, cherries, dates. The taste is similar, with the spices quite pronounced. Light-med bodied. Pretty good but not great.

jennajlover (135) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Awesome aroma of dark fruits and complex malts. Big thick head and silky smooth carbonation. Flavor of complexity took on life of its own of prune and toffee. Finishes of molasses and earthy hops.

markducommun (387) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Cloudy dark mahogany, yellow tan head. Burnt sugar, light spice, dark fruit. Light earthiness. Touch of spice and bitterness, plenty of sweetness. Medium body, lingering finish that strays towards bitter. Light effervescence, not to much in the way of carbonation. Good.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Nice aroma of some cherry and raisin along with well balanced malts. Has a plum flavor accompanied by a maple malt character and a rich finish.

355ml bottle. Clear, darkest ruby red colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, ochre-ish beige head. Malty aroma with a cherry note. Taste is slightly sweet malty, fruity, notes of cherry, red berries, a minimally salty and peppery spicy touch, celery. Very clean wrought, soft and smooth palate.
