Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Poured clear, thin dark brown with a scant, off-white head that only provided a bit of lacing. The aroma was malt, sugar, light spice and alcohol. The flavor was mild spice, lightly roasted malt and boozy alcohol heat. The mouthfeel was thin and watery. It tasted like alcohol flavored water. Not impressed.

Tangy and tasty, spicy and fruity. Beautiful but a bit lacking in flavor.

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Hazy brown pour, tan head. Aroma is caramel, not much else. Light bitter. Flavor is caramel and kind of a dull hops. Heavy and oily. Considering the name, I was expecting fruit and spices. Itís not unpleasant, but not that good.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Sampler at the Dutch last night. Light hazy brown in the glass. Thinner anemic head. Nose of flat weak malt. Body has an off tang of stale hop that lingers in an unpleasant manner. Glad I didnít pay for this.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Pg 175 on Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide. Jackson says this mahogany old ale was inspired by Samuel Smithís Pale Ale..but I dontí taste the inspiration. Instead, I taste an unbalanced bitter oily mixture. The commerical description brags of a blend of imported hops. But this is from Oregon ,why do you need to import hops from the HOME of hops in the US? Alcohol presence is pronounced and unpleasent. Iííll probably let this sail on by.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 I donít know what I was expecting, but whatever it was it wasnít met. A dull, mixed-up and confusing brew. Seems undecided whether to let the malt stand first in line, or allow the hops to come front and center. A bitter, slightly acrid aftertaste doesnít help. Maybe adding some spices would help perk it up, but as it stands itís not much.

11-13-07 bottle. Smells of raisins soaking in prune juice. Black color with decent head. Taste is a tart malty combo. Not very easy for me to drink - it just doesnít seem right. Finish is chalky and leaves me wanting to wash my mouth out. Overall, this beer reminds me of burning chalky prunes.

12 oz bottle from Broudyís at Jax Beach, FL. Pours a dirty brown color with a light head. Aroma is a bit malty, and a bit odd Taste is the same, I was not a big fan of this. Iím not sure what they are doing here, but it didnít work.
