Bottle - thanks ditmier. One of the most beautiful pours I have ever seen... Dark auburn with a mountain of thick, creamy nutmeg colored head. Aroma is rich with sweet caramel, citrus, and floral hops. First sip is a smooth and mellow malty blend with faded hops. Some piney notes and earthiness before a lingering floral bitter tail. Still, quite smooth. Kinda has some chocolate in teh back... Great balance and blend, truly one of the better GT brews sampled to date.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle marked 9/25/2008 thanks to mar. Pours with brown tan head over a deep amber-brown body. Aroma of hops, maple, bitterness, and molasses. Taste is a syrupy mess in my opinion. Very sweet and syrupy up front with a completely disconnected and harsh bitterness that finishes up the flavor and lingers. Syrupy mouthfeel.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle courtesy of mar. Dark red pour. Welcome warm aged woody taste. Fantastic feeling. Taste is aged beyond belief and feels more like a woody beer than anything. Well done and leaves the feeling of a double that isnt present at the start.

2008 Bottle - Id love to know what marketing genius decided to dip a fucking swingtop into Mil-Std wax...anyways, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a large tan head...aroma is gorgeous, roasty sugar, rough grain, floral hops, cocoa and sticky malt...flavour is similarly dark, astringently burnt sugar, mild alcohol, dry malt, coffee and more char bittness...at cellar temp, its a but rough cut without some more sweet malt to balance, but enojyable none the less...
