Bottle. Pours mahogany with a light tan head. Aroma is predominately malty with bread, caramel, Walkers shortbread, and spruce hops. Flavor is caramel, nuts, brown bread, cocoa powder, and honey. Hops come in the flavor as well to balance out, adding a spicy hop profile to the beer. On the palate the beer is medium-bodied, smoothy, and creamy.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Toasted malt and dark fruit aromas with a light spicy hop character. Lots of bread, a bit of floral hops, and some fruity yeast esters. The taste is a little bit more bitter than expected. Some mild roast, a lot of toast, and plenty of bread. Spicy and floral hop notes on the finish.

Have come to expect lower and lower level of beers from Full Sail, but for $1.00 I keep trying them. This is better than (their) average. As always, under-fermented and really sweat. Some interesting things happen though as the malt gets worked through. Hops are solid but nothing special. I hate bashing the "47 employee owners" of this fine establishment, but this is yet another half-ass attempt.

Better than decent winter beer. Understated spicyness. Rich malts with some dark fruit and cherry flavor. Aroma of bread and fruit.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a smaller soapy off-white head. Nose is roasted malts and a hint of caramel sweetness and spice. Medium palate - decent weight. Taste is mild roast, dark fruit, a touch of caramel, and a hint of spice. Very nice.
