Nice aroma with caramel, nuts, wood, and some pine hops. Malty flavor caramel, nuts, and some dark fruit. Pine bitterness and a little alcohol in the finish. I liked this a lot better than the other ratings I saw, and will try more from this brewery.

obguthr (3769) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Virtually no aroma, maybe dried leaves. Clear rust, thin head. Earthy, very subtle minty mulberry note. Dried leaves in the end. Not exciting.

BeerGolem (666) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample on tap at Craft Beer Market (Vancouver). This beer has the colour of cognac. Slightly hazy. Beige head and some lacing. Aroma: mainly Cascade hop and malt. Strong bitterness. Resionous with some fruits. Lasting aftertaste. Creamy texture. Alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer. Surprised by its low rating.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2014
Ruddy reddish brown, nice rocky beige head. Lots of malty notes in the aroma - caramel and toffee, some molasses. Very smooth. Rich and sweet flavors, like caramel and toffee. Not normally my thing, but I liked this quite a bit.

Drake (8476) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Fliptop 32 ounce bottle from Whole Foods, Charlottesville. Pours a hazy red with a bit of brown. Medium sized tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toffee malt, apple, dark fruits, toast, earthy hops. The taste is toffee malts, herbal, earthy hops and a bit of stone fruit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. Solid.

stantheman (647) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A dark but relatively uninteresting imperial ale. Too much malt and too little hops for my taste. Easy drinking although.

BrewDad (4922) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Super sweet filled with too much malt was over the top strong syrup sweet beer. Not my flavor.
