Pours a nice dark brown with off-white head. Malt, caramel, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some roasted character.

blankboy (6029) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep amber-red with a small lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of spices, toasted caramel malt and light vegetal notes along with dark fruit and light sugar. Fruity flavour along with spice, a bit of alcohol, bready caramel malt, dark fruit, sugar and an average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

MarkSachon (579) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased at Giant Eagle on Route 8 in Pittsburgh. Immediate fruity notes and a mild bite from the hops. Medium body only --- not quite as rich as advertised.

Aroma is pretty sweet. Taste is on the lighter side, but has a blend of spices and malts. Overall pretty solid.

Beerandhockey8 (228) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JAN 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper, very thick tan head. Nose is a little more subtle then I would have thought. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, hops for a little balance. Taste is mostly bitter, medium body. Finishes clean, balanced out with the hops. Nice beer from Full Sail, a little plain but a nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Another solid offering. Pours a dark ruby head with creamy and moderately persistent head. Roasted malts clearly on the nose with hops coming through. Taste is a bright burst of mild chocolate and cherry. Hopping gives a lot of berry cheer in a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle enjoy by March 25, 2014. Hazy, deep amber/ruby with a thin white cap coverage. Aroma is a spice variety, roasted nuttiness, and malt. Taste is sweet with a touch of sourness. Soft carbonation and creaminess, with a long dry finish.
