Pours a nice reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruits, nut, hops, and a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth caramel malt, wood, and a nice hop.

Bottle. Nutty aroma, with a malty hint. Has a light, sweet flavor, much like a toffee or caramel.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Light chestnut colored body with a less than average sized head. The aroma is mildly malty… sweet, with a hint of maple syrup and toffee. The flavor is actually milder than the aroma… a bit bready, like a liquid version of the most tasteless granola bar you have ever had. There is a delicate hint of citric hops in the finish…. A nice session beer at best, but there really isn’t a great deal of anything at all going on for me.

Ratman197 (10546) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with an amber head. Aromas of roasted malt, toffee, and orange. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, dark bread and a bit of orange with a smooth, slightly bitter lingering finish.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Brownish amber colour with a thin off-white head. Citrus, bready, and toffee aroma. Bread, toffee, orange and light alcohol flavours. A bit light in body but smooth.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pours a ruby color with little bit of head. Smells of dark fruit and malt. Taste is a touch of chocolate on the initial taste followed by some dark fruit and caramel malt and finally a bit of floral hops. A solid brew.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby color with a think lasting head. Nose of fruit, possibly rasberries or cranberries with a slight nuttiness. Taste is smooth with malty overtones. Hop presence is lacking, but this really is a good beer from FD. Flying dog was the brewery that got me into the game long ago, glad to see that they can still put out a great winter brew. I really like this one.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 17, 2005
12 bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mahogany brown with a thin persistant head. It has a watered down malty smell. It has a taste reminicent of a well-crafted amber with an oatmeally finish. Very parculiar actually. There are very mild fuel tones and it’s a little bit sweet. It’s not bad but it would be better if the alcohol content were upped. For some reason I had this beer listed as a K9 Cruiser Attitude beer at 7.3% in my personal notes from last year.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Poured a deep reddish brown in the pint glass. Malty aroma that is reflected strongly in the roasted flavor (which I like). Lightly hopped. Very tasty and enjoyable.
