COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber color and caramel flavor from a rich blend of specialty malts dominate the spice of Pacific Northwest hops in this sweet, malty mixture.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2006
On tap at F.R. Appleton. Poured deep amber with a cap of off-white head. Sweet caramel, toffee, berries, and a hint of peat in the nose. Toasty caramel was smooth across the middle with some alcohol feel on the roof and toffee + peat at the finish. Medium-bodied with a rather long-lasting sweet and smoky finish. Very good for the style and the best brew of the night.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2006
(01.21.06) On tap at the Horse & Plow, Kohler, WI. Clear brown hued ale having an average head with good lacing. Light malt aroma. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied ale that starts dry with light malt flavor. Finishes dry. Very mild flavored malty beer. A good drinkable dry session beer.

Tasted at Fox River Brewpub in Appleton. My favorite beer of choice there. Typical dark Scotch Ale, but very good. Smooth texture. Rather filling. Will order again.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2005
The best of the brews I tried here. Carmel malt aroma, well formed nut carmel malt taste, with a pleasant smooth texture. The one to get if you are having only one at Fox River

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Light chestnut color with a smaller off white head. Heavy caramel aromas with a nice backdrop of darker malts with light pine tree hops and some peat. Mild caramel and vanilla flavors. Dry peat in the linger make one think about chewing on a piece of wood, but otherwise quite good.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2005
slightly hazy brown, thin off white head. cherry barnyard, lemon aroma with caramel and malt. flavours of brown sugar, tart furit and sweet malt. finish of over-ripe almost rotten fruit.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Light mahogony hazy with a white thin sudsy head. Malt vinegar and cherry tart filling, spice and brown sugar in the nose. Similar to a flemish brown ale, not what I expected. Finish isn’t all that pleasant with a fermented vegetable aftertaste.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2005
On tap at the Applton location. Clear dark body, not much head. Dark tootsie roll chocolate malt with lightening caramel sweetness. Not much in the hop department. Milk chocolate comes out in teh malt-forward flavor along with a hint of musky tree bark. Whatever hops are in this beer must be contained within the lingering pepper flavor - they’re hard to pick out. Medium body, low carbonation. A nicely malted but not terrilby interesting beer - good though.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Deep rosy amber in color with a rim of white head around the edges. Nutty and pine aroma, some cardboard and American whisky. Small hints of maple and brown sugar. Creamy and robust - nuts and caramel really come out. Tastes a lot like a sweetened Irish red. Piney backdrop and subtle spicing to give this one character. Well done incorporation of malts. Caramelized pecan finish.

badgerben (4401) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Dark red color with a thin head. Coffeeish aroma with a bit of plum at the end. Apple as well? Grape and jam taste with a moderate malt base. The alcohol comes out towards the finish.
