Hoppy head with a little roast here. Like a strong brown ale. Finishes a little bitter, a little bit of a rusty taste as well. Orangy brown pour with ok head and lacing. Tall can at American Ice.

DCLawyer (1395) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft->mini lager at RFD. Cloudy orange-amber with small offwhite head. Bitter pine and citrus hops with some caramel malt. One ugly beer, but tastes pretty good.

nike (950) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2014
16oz can, amber pour, heavy feeling, chewy, resin, dough flavors. Not balanced, the beer did hide the 8%abv well enough, but very sweet. Not one that I will try in the future.

Can: Honey, caramel, and pine aroma, malty. Murky ochre, thin yellow head. Full body, a little hot. Piney bitterness, honey underneath, kind of muddled. Grapefruit peel finish as the maltiness fades away. Tasty.

16oz can. Pours a medium amber with very little white head. Almost no carbonation. Sweet malt flavors. Caramel, bread. Lots of sediment. Meh

AWISLguy (1191) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2013
16oz can from BrookFalls Discount. Pours an amber orange with an off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has citrus and sour fruits and pale malts and earthy grain. Taste is of grapefruit and grapes, with some solid caramel malt back. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. An interesting brew; not sure what style they were going for.

Patrickctenchi (3468) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can: Pours cloudy, iced-tea brown with a short, tan head. Toasty bread, caramel aroma. Taste is rye malt, caramel. Bitter resin and alcohol. Not exactly enjoyable...a bit harsh.

ADesenberg (561) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Can: pours a reddish copper brown color with a tiny little tan head. Aroma is malt with some spicy rye. Nice heavy mouthfeel with a bitter backbone. It’s all malt upfront with that spicy rye again. This is a wonderful beer if you are looking to fill up on something. It’s pretty heavy feeling, in a good way. Tasty beer after a long day at work. Enjoyed this much more than the first time I tried it.

Poured a semi hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, herbal hops, and booze. Taste is pretty standard asa, lots of malt and hops and booze.
