AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Clear Filtered body, amber, thin white head, mild lace, aroma is toffee malts, rye spice and mild hop spice, flavor is big and bold, heavy handed bitter addition backs up the rye spice for a huge flavor punch, refreshing. Bold roast, much roastier than others in this style, almost an american brown ale in terms of flavor. I’m really enjoying this ale, best I’ve had from Flying Dog

Metalchopz (2562) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Purchased a 6-pack in Baltimore on my trip to Maryland Deathfest. Pours a real deep amber colour with a frothy warm-beige cap, good retention and creamy lacing. Aromas are malty with some sweetness and very light grass. The taste is sweet with fruity notes, caramel malts and some decent hop in the finish, creating a mild dryness. Plums, dates and other dark fruits. Hints of oranges. Not a bad brew, but a little heavy in sugars... especially for such warm weather.

Appearance is medium white head and amber. Aroma is spices and malts. Taste is a good blend of bitter, sweet, and spice. Overall a pretty good winter ale.

Lore (1389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2015
perfect appearance of clear dark amber colour with reddish notes and 1 inch dense beige-ish off white head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of dried plum, raisin, biscuit, caramel and floral notes; taste of biscuit, caramel, some minimal earthy, dried fruity and floral notes and bitter aftertaste; not that bad, but nothing really extraordinary (except its appearance)
