This pours a murky brownish-amber color with a pencil thin head on top. The aroma is a bit candy-like; picking up cherry, toffee, red plum, and twizzlers. It’s sweet going down and a little thinner than expected. The flavors are sweet caramel and toffee, that’s joined by some cherry cough drop, plum, leading to a somewhat prickly finish. Not bad but not something I entirely enjoyed either. Admittedly not one of my favorite styles.

Not worth seeking out. Caramel bomb. Tastes like a caramel candy with alcohol in the center ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks puzzl! Some sour cherry and cabernet aroma, wine barrel aged? Smells good to me. All of that leaves on the sip, and replaced by toasted marshmallow and burnt sweetness. Campfire smoke.

Pours an opaque brown with a medium tan head...lt sediment throughout. Aroma has roasty malt and a bit of spicy hops...some peaty notes. Flavor actually has some scotchy qualities...roasty with good bitterness and a woody note. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, earthy finish that has some tea notes.

Bottle poured a dark amber color with a thin coating of off white head. Aroma has caramel, dark fruit, malt, and sweetness. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the low side. Flavor has dark fruit, malt, dark sugar, medium bitterness, nuts, and a bit of a bite on the finish. Big and malty but with plenty of sweetness.

wedgie9 (1929) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2012
Tasted on 4/4/12 from a 12oz bottle obtained in a recent BIF. Pours dark auburn with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is bread malt with some green hops underlying, and maybe just a touch of raisin. The flavor is nicely malty with bread and some cereal up front, moving to the lightly bitter, but very green hops and the same lightly sweet touch of raisin. The body is nearly full with average carbonation and a medium finish that has some of the green hops and just a hint of raisin still.

Bottle split with Tim the Mullet. Pours a somewhat hazy brown color, medum head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of bread, cinnamon, caramel, fruit, and ginger. Taste is nutty with a smoky character but overall a fruity palate with mollases and rich plum. Warming.
