I was fortunate to sample this with the brewer at a local FC bar. Good guy and passionate about what he does. Nice cloudy amber color with a little head and not much lacing. Hops and sweet malt with some caramel tones are in the aroma. A little more carbonation than I would have expected and a smooth oily texture. With as many IBU’s as he claimed I wasn’t overwhelmed with bitterness. The malt presence could have been a little sweeter. The alcohol was hidden well.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, lots of sweet caramelized sugars with a slight grassy, earthy tone as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, dark cocoa, slight caramel, toffee, molasses, finishing with some grass, spice in there as well.

ajnepple (2553) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013

nimbleprop (5210) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy amber with some eggshell head. Boozy nose, malty, tropical fruit, rum, raisins, prunes, caramel. Flavor is sweet, cane sugar, malt, rum, oranges, grapefruit. Full bodied, sticky finish. Good, but I think a bit of aging/cellaring would dry it out and add some complexity.
