fiammanghilla (555) - Genova, ITALY - SEP 2, 2013
Bottiglia 335ml @ irish pub. Ambrata molto scura praticamente priva di schiuma. Molto malto, fruttata e dolciastra. Il finale è invece più amaro e piuttosto lungo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Bottle. Dark ruddy brown thin head. Malty but a bit too bitter for my taste. Some bready and caramel notes. Ok but not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (3199) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Garnet color with huge head and decent foamy retention. Nose of caramel, toffee and light chocolate notes. Flavor is toasted grain, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light dark fruit, mild hop bitterness on the finish with only a hint of alcohol. Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Very nice brew.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - JUL 12, 2013
POURS A MEDIUM brown with an average tan head. This beer starts sweet but a un tasty bitterness quickly follows. The malt is strong and there is some sour dark fruits with bit of earthiness and roasted flavors.

annunz123 (861) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Malty, earthy, nutty aroma. Flavor is nutty with apple, spice, and some wood. Some spice and drying alcohol in the finish. Very good.

raphael (883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Had no idea what kind of beer this was. So surprised by the ruddy brown with modest off white head. Caramel, toasted malt, & oak aromas. Had a good bite, with caramel & alcohol.. A little flat. balanced finish.
