Dogbrick (11339) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt plus some touches of dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and dark fruit. The finish is sweet and roasty with a malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sammy (11076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
hops and yeast in aroma. Some bitterness and roastiness and nuttiness. So complexity and higher alcohol is assimilated. Amber colour. Medium mouthfeel.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Co-rated by Scraff... Clear, mahogany ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Very well retained with nice, creamy, thick lacing. Chocolatey aroma with notes of cashews, chocolate chip cookie dough and dark breads. The flavor, although well-balanced and well-bittered, is a bit of a let down. Smells better than it tastes. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Good brew, overall.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle in hotel room, Ithaca. Clear, deep brown appearance with a light brown head. Toasty, caramel malty, somewhat nutty aroma. A touch fruity (apple, pear), burnt toffee, caramel malty flavor. Not bad.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2011
On tap. Poured a hazy brownish amber with a thick white head that laced thickly and lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of malts with biscuit, caramel, hay and bread coming through with a hint of fruit. Flavor was similarly malty with lots of biscuits and bread with a bit of caramel sweetness to round out the beer.

Draft at the Drafting Room. Amber/copper colored, woth caramel malt, toffee, and hop aroma. Tastes malty, with hops, caramel, and cognac at the finish. Smooth, with well hidden alcohol. Undeniably quaffable.
