JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap at La Jolla location. Deep amber/copper colour. Toasted nutty aroma with a soft estery berry fruitiness. Flavour is quite well-balanced. Light fruit and soft sweet maltiness. A light toastiness and a softly fruity finish. Pretty nice session ale really. Good balance and much better than I ever expected.

arminjewell (8674) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.

(11/2/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. Clear red-amber color. Aroma of malt, some nutty notes, some toasted hints and light dark fruitiness. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, some toastiness, a bit of nuts and light fruitiness. Medium-bodied with strong carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8572) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
Draught. Served ice cold in a frosted glass... Red-brown with small yellowish rim. Malts, and very little else, seen the temperature. Roasted malts, some bitterness with slight retronasal sweetness, which continues growing warming up, pastry flavours. Medium bodied at best. Horrible presentation for a beer that isn’t all that great to start with...

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
On tap pretty much everywhere we went in San Diego, but this rating comes from our extensive sit-down at The Local. Clear copper brown, earthy caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavour profile, mild bitterness with a tea-leaf finish.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged amber with a medium to large sized beige head. A touch of oxidized paper on the nose, sweet malt and a touch of a hoppy backbone. Medium bodied, very smooth. Lots of caramel and more oxidization, raisins and paper. Finishes a bit warm and boozy with more sweetness. Interesting.

Pours clear amber color with a large head. Nutty, malty aroma, faint dried fruits, some hops and resin. Flavor is also quite nutty and malty, biscuit notes, dried apricot and resinous hops. Sweet and dry palate. Decent.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at Universal City location. Aroma of currants, some alcohol, a bit of caramel and maybe some smoke or scotch. Pours with an off-white head with some lacing over an amber body. Taste is of soggy malts. Its too fizzy and a bit harsh.

KyotoLefty (7878) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 15, 2012
Bottled. Malty caramel nose, earthy, chocolate. Nice malt flavor, chocolate and caramel, very rich and rounded with fruit and a good level of sweetness. Bready. Nice and drinkable.
