Bottle shared by iowaherkeye. Poured a clear ruddy brown color with an off white head. Molasses and toffee dominated the nose, but there was also a whiff of clove. Cloyingly sweet and a bit sticky with a splash of alcohol. I tasted toffee, date, molasses and hay. So so.

750 ml bottle courtesy of my friend J that he purchased at the Lancaster, PA location. Pours a muddy brown with a reddish tint and a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of prunes, raisins, molasses, brown sugar, mild spice and some alcohol vapors. The flavor is similar to the aroma and equally enjoyable. Medium-full bodied. Nice!

Pours a deep brown/black color with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is vanilla and fruit dominant with some alcohol and yeast. Easily, one of the best I’ve had in some time.

Clear brown body with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma. The flavor is sweet but there’s not much else going on here. Needs complexity.

750 mL bottle. Said to be brewed at Willmington location? Anyway, pours to a rusty brown body with a foamy dark tan head. The aroma is dry cinnamon sticks, chocolate powder, mace. The flavor is chocolate, tart fruit, spices like cinnamon and mace. The palate is spicy and medium bodied.

Courtesy kramer. The pour yields a dark and hazy caramel brown body with ruby red highlights. A quick, foamy, tan colored head leaves minimal, spotty lacing behind. The aroma shows caramelized sugar, nougat, spiced figs, and hints of orange peel. Organic, earthy notes do well to cut the sweetness of the candy sugar. Likewise, flavors are well balanced between sweet, earthy, and fruity. Brown sugar and nougat again show strong, with hints of chocolate and various dark, caramelized fruits. Smooth and creamy, almost velvety on the palate. The alcohol is very well hidden, making this huge brew dangerously drinkable. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. I’d bet that this bottle was the beneficiary of some careful aging.

Bottle sampled at state line. Pours a dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, chocolate, fruit, and a hint of brown sugar. Flavor of caramel, molassas, dark fruit, and some smoke. Thanks robert

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Tap, Iron Hill Wilmington. Dark, cola-brown appearance with a slight reddish tint; off-white head with excellent retention. Cola and candy sugar aroma, with dried fruits. Full, chewy mouthfeel: good levels of carbonation, maple syrup and dried fruits, some belgian spice and yeast, floral hoppiness; complex, layered palette. Slightly dry, cola and candy sugar finish.

Growler provided by kmweaver. Clear, dark amber with small off-white head. The aroma is cherry, vinous, candi sugar, banana and clove. The flavor is very sweet, lots of fruit, apple, pear, banana and some clove, slightly medicinal. Medium/full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation, slightly astringent finish.
