Pours a deep and hazy amber with a thin layer of tan head. Aromas is strong with some sweet and sticky floral notes as well as some piney resin. This beer has a very strong flavor, it almost tastes like bitter molasses with a tinge of alcohol which lends to a fantastic aroma but to somewhat of an overbearing flavor. The flavor profile tends to change a bit from sip to sip, but most of what I get is a sweet and somewhat rounded tart flavor. Pretty good.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 16 oz can. Dark orange with a reddish tint and a filmy off-white head. Aroma has a hint of too much crystal malt, some cake mix maltiness. Flavor is full bodied with some caramel sweetness, a bit of pomegranate fruitiness, some cherry juice, a touch of bitter citrus and just a touch of homebrew crystal malt funkiness. Mouthfeel has a creamy thickness to it. Needs just a touch of refinement - but not bad to get your drink on.

dmac (3747) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2014
16oz tall boy can from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a swampy reddish brown body with a smaller beige tight foamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, toffee, molasses, grains and some sugary raisin. Medium to fuller body, tight bubbly carbonation, chalky, harsh finish. Flavor is dry grains, toffee, molasses, dry caramel, some fruit rinds, sugar. Not bad.

Can.
Appearance: Murky red/amber body with no head.
Aroma: Sweet caramel and bubblegum, very weak strength.
Taste: Sweet caramel with a mild bitterness of citrus.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Easy to drink, but everything is muted about this. It’s as if you took a Lagunitas American strong ale and muted it all.

solidfunk (3004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2014
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 (1312) - 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 (889) - 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.

obguthr (3437) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
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.

AWISLguy (1048) - 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.
