COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied copper colored ale is the perfect beer to enjoy by the warmth of a fire.


3.4
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Pours a dark murky brown color with a small off white head. Nose of clove, yeast, banana, brown sugar, dark fruits, caramel. Initial taste is of banana, caramel, clove, citrus. Above average palate duration but the body is touch too light. Good head retention. Mild hop balance.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2009
A couple of pints were enjoyed after a morning of skiing. A dark clear brown with decent head and sparkling carbonation. Pretty sweet smell and little bready Sort of like sweet mustard and pretzels. Body is sort of unimpressive and some hip bitterness in the finish.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Referred to in 2007 as the Bete Noir

Dark brown color, murky body, with a fizzy, off-white head. Fully diminishing. Aroma is citrusy, with banana and raison notes. Blind, it would come across as a light wheat beer. Initial taste is acidic, moving a sweet and sour finish with active carbonation.

Not at all what we expected from a beer this dark, it comes across much more as a hefeweizen in the aroma. The dark appearance teases of a much richer malt character, but the sour finish and thin body leave us unfulfilled. It is, however, unique. Reviewed on January 20th, 2007.

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Draft at Wayne, PA. Copper pour, with malt, caramel, brown sugar aroma. Watery palate, with malt, some caramel, toffee, and slight hops in the finish. Just OK.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2006 Sampled on draft at the Pittsburgh brewery this beer poured a light mahogany color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and fruity The mouthfeel is thick. The flavor is very sweet, malty and lightly fruity. There is a syrupy sweet cloying finish. Very tasty.
