Lemke10 (903) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2015
This pours a dark amber color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is strong with malts and yeast. The taste is big with bready tone, dark fruits mixed with spices, and a little banana. Fairly good tasting considering the lower rating. Worth a try!

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle - Rosy amber pour with a thick tan head. Nose is not very pungent--pear juice, canned peaches, and sweet bready malt. Lots of honey. Taste is similar, with honey bread malt, sweet and sticky tropical fruit juice, candi sugar. A bit of grassy hope on the finish. Slick and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too sweet for my tastes, but in small quantities this could be a pleasant sipper.

Aroma is dark fruit, earthy and malts. The flavor is dark fruit/grapes, malts, mild/medium sweetness, fruit and a warming/alcoholic finish.

tmoreau (2986) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Shared 16 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, copper color, with a modest, off white layer of head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was spice, and fruit with tropical notes as mango, and some pit fruit. Medium+ bodied, the taste was candy-like that thankfully faded some, managed the alcohol quite well, but still remained a little too sweet for me at the finish. Shared another 16 oz. bottle with beer friends, and this time, picked up on additional aroma notes that were floral, and as red licorice. Still a bit too sweet for me.

notalush (5392) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
One pint bottle picked up in Wisconsin - I think there are ratings for multiple versions of this beer under this entry - for example, previous ratings mention.cherries and barrel-aging - these are clearly not the case with this bottle in front of me - anyway - lightly hazy light ruby - thick, soapy lace - nose is fairly sweet, but has inviting, complex aromatics - raisin, fig, date, treacle, clove, light pepper, cinnamon - low carbonation, watery texture - flavor is a let down given the aroma - very sweet, with a lot of alcohol presence (not just the heat, but the actual flavor of the alcohol) - moderate bitterness - some raisin, treacle - just a hot, sweet mess that almost tastes like someone dumped cheap vodka into a lower abv beer.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2014
[Tap] Pours a cloudy light amber color with a small cap of head. Nose is of sweet malts, sweet light fruits and maple syrup. Taste is of spicy yeast, sweet fig, lots of residual sugar, fruit and cherry brandy. Hot and thin finish throws off the balance a bit. Otherwise itís OK.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Tap at Old Fashioned. Hazy amber-orange body, rising carbonation bubbles. Thin, oily head. Big, sweet, rich, lots of what I would assume is candi sugar. A sugar cinnamon edge cools down the alcohol. A little odd, imperfect creature, but OK..especially for a 2 dollar pint. Sort of tastes like someone dropped malt extract in a fermenter and carbonated it. Smooth and sweet, but just too big for itís own good. The caramel sweetness is overbearing. Not offensive, just overly sweet and sugary. Nutmeg, light clove. Odd malt extract fraud.

DrSilverworm (8687) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Served in a tulip for $7.75 on tap at Cock & Bull. Mostly clear red / brown color. Good thin off-white head. Cherry aroma. Bigger body, light carbonation. Sweet taste, kind of cloying in the finish. Good lace. Bigger body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy, almost. Light nuttiness. Tastes odd to me, but gets a bit better as it warms up

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2012
On tap at Old Fashioned. Clear copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, booze and sweet malt. This one was too sweet and tough for me to stomach, something just wasnít right here. Alcohol, cherry juice, sugar, caramel and mild oak. I generally like Hinterlandís brews but couldnít finish this one.
