FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
The pour is a dark brown with a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is toffee heavy with some malt note standing out. The taste is light and creamy up front with the rye standing out in somewhat of a bitter ending. -Fish!

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dark bread, toasted notes, raisins, figs, and spicy rye with spicy and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, light dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Looked great! Poured a brilliant, mahogany brown and produced a creamy, 1.5 inch tan head, that slowly subsided. Some decent malt in the nose and suggestions of hops. Faint hints of cocoa and spice? Medium-light body. Surprisingly short! Some lingering bitter notes. Not much malt on the palate. Light, fresh, and mild. Not as dark as expected. Some lace develops. When looking for a Mild Ale, I will look elsewhere next time.

Mediocre toffee colored pour. Tastes like it looks, which is simple and forgettable.

sawbuck (366) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Nice deep brown color....spicy molasses aroma...sweet up front with a hearty finish. Nice.

Bulk_Carrier (2276) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 2, 2013
It pours a dark amber and gives more of a dark black to brown body. An inch of white foamy head appears and dies to a half centimeter while leaving some nice speckled lacing coating the upper part of the pint glass. The smell has caramel and fruit up front with a bit of nuts in the background. The taste is the same adding a bit of breadiness to it. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a dry finish. This is a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is a solid beer for its style, but just mediocre to me.

Reddish orange in color with a tan head. Chocolate, toffee, spicy rye aroma. Carmel, bready, spicy flavor. Okay beer.
