On tap at Boulders St. Cloud. Pours a burgundy color, with a small beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and a tinge of malt. Flavor is caramel and fresh, with the double bitterness just barely apparent. Solid.

On tap, Beer Kitchen, KCMO. Fluffy, quickly dissipating, dark tan head. Malty, heady, boozy nose... not expected in an ESB style. Simply delicious bitter sweet, alcohol with a rich mouth feel. Thoroughly enjoyed.

wchesser (1142) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Very dark mahogany with fading head and good lacing. Big malty nose with dried fruit, tobacco. Full bodied with taste following nose. Most similar to Great Divide Hibernation. Big burly winter warmer. Very pleasantly suprised with this one. Teton is totally solid and tremendous value.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, earthy hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

Pours a dark cola colour. Creamy fluffy tan head...very nice. Aromas are sweet cloying fruit..mostly citrus, some berries. Floar notes and malty notes too. Full, thick, and creamy mouthfeel. Perfect. Flavours are roasted malts, burnt sugar, sweet fruits, bitterness on the finish. Complex, and satisfying.

750 ml bottle. Bottled 8/23/12. Pours murky brown with a medium dark beige head that collapses after a few minutes; leaves nice lace. Aroma is strong in caramel; thereís also burnt toast, floral notes. Itís very aromatic but it doesnít smell like my cup of tea--smells like a malt bomb. Taste is sweet and roasty with some bitterness in the finish. Taste is somewhat similar to Arrogant Bastard and other beers of that ilk. Iím getting strong anise in the lingering finish. Alcohol presence is strong--tastes much stronger than 7.5%. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation soft to medium. Itís a respectable brew, but not really my thing.

750ml bomber from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Dated 8/23/2012 on the bottle. Pours garnet colored with reddish highlights. Off-tan head that lasts and lasts - down completely through the glass there still is some head. Terrific lacing still sticking to the top in strings as I reach the bottom. Aroma has reddish fruits, pine, spices and sweet choco/caramel. Taste is very hop-forward with sweet fruits, pine and citrus. Major malt backbone awaiting in the middle with a tangy spicyness. An almost lemony bitter taste at the end. Wonderfully complex in both smell and taste. Finishes hoppy bitter and malty sweet, with a bit of a tang. Very enjoyable AM STR.

Um yes please. Beautiful burgundy pour, light head with a slight oatyness balance out by the alcoholic body and nice bitter profile. Yes please ESB.

Dark red pour from the tap. Medium white head. Brown sugar and sweet aroma. Interesting full taste. Would try again. Weird ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
