MaltOne (297) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2013
(pint can) Pours red amber, with a creamy buff head. Aroma is pleasantly complex - Butter biscuit, slightly sweet, a bit of spice. Taste starts like a Scotch Ale, slightly sweet, malty, then the finish adds a dry, bitter component to the sweeter start, creating some balance to the initial Scotch Ale impression. Mouthful is unctous leaving some sweet and some bitter on the palate - creme brulee with bitter orange. Overall a very interesting brew. The rye and the hops add a new, and pleasant dimension to what would otherwise be a somewhat familiar profile

On tap @ Black Finn. Very hazy orange amber, lacy off white head. Grapefruit and mango hop character, sweet caramel malts, creamy mouthfeel, long bitter finish.

Really not sure what I don’t love this on. Probably because all the other beer I tried today was so excellent.

Autumn Brew Review 2015. Hazy red color. Dry and earthy. Lots of malt, making it sweet. Very little hop presence. not a lot going on here, but the flavor is good.

drpimento (2865) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Aroma was the best thing here with good malt, rye, hops. Flavor had a huge metallic component.and a medicinal finish. Body is ok. Hopes were kind of dashed after that first great whiff. Oh well.

thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Pours an auburn color. Aroma is sweet and malty, caramel and honey notes. Flavor is well-balanced but fully malt-forward. A good bit of caramel flavor. Incredibly drinkable.

ordybill (1156) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Aroma- A pretty good mix of malt and hops, this was the best part of the beer to me. Appearance- Pours an amber color. Large white head. Taste- Not a big fan a lot of malt and hops but I just didn’t get blown away by it. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- Not a fan of this beer, it just didn’t taste that good, I may have to give it another spin later on

ben4321 (5359) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2015
Location: 16 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/17/15

Aroma: Has a heavily caramel malt aroma, other malts, plus some herbal and floral notes
Appearance: This one pours an unclear amber color with a frothy beige head and medium lace
Flavor: The malts dominate this one, strongly caramel, somewhat sweet, the bitterness is mild
Palate: Medium bodied, fairly sticky, with a soft carbonation, and a somewhat sticky finish
Overall Impression: I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. There’s just too much caramel without enough hops to balance it out.
