aracauna (3160) - Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Nice color, deep, deep red-brown. The head is average size and dry and sandy looking. The aroma is warm malt and is a bit spicy. The flavor is less malty than I would have thought with the appearance. A bit sour in the finish. Coriander? The mouthfeel is a bit fuzzy.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Aromas of malt, fruit (perhaps some cherry notes), and a subdued spice character as well. A brown ale with a thin tan head, that shows deep clear amber hues when held up to the light. Nice, pretty well balanced, though perhaps a tad thin. Lightly sweet in the front, with a bit of bitterness and spiciness in the finish. It is like a little brother to Deschutes Jubelale. Some definite cherry notes here. Really does remind me of a weaker version of the Jubelale. If I had not had that, I would think a bit more highly of this. Still this is pretty good.

Bottle. Mildly sweet aroma with some spice, pine and alcohol. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. Fairly lean body. Notes of roasted malt, brown sugar, spice and hops. Finishes fairly watery with some lingering hoppiness and spice.

Dark amber color, spicy candylike aroma. Caramel malty flavor. Nice but unspectactular winter.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Pours deep ruby hinging on brown with a wonderful bottle condition induced, creamy head. The nose shows little hop presence, heavy with caramel and gingerbread malts. Full mouthfeel is almost chewy - nice for a moderate ABV beer. Molasses and brown sugar create a really sweet experience, but come off one dimensional in the end. This just doens’t have the depth I’ve come to enjoy from Old Ales.

Palidor19 (3008) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2008
quite a robust flavor, slightly nutty, toasty. The rest is full of malty goddness. What a tasty beer to have around.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2009
A ruby colored beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet & malty. The taste is sweet, caramel, & just a touch of hop bitterness in the end.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Dark brown - think head. Only a slight hint of spice aroma, but roasted malt and molasses in the taste. There’s a bit of bittnerness in the taste as well as the finish.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours reddish brown and has a brown head. Smells fruity like prunes, full bodied, tastes malty with a little bit of spice and has a slight bitter finish. Overall a good beer.
