UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 2013-04-30. Crisp red brown body small beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, lightly caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, sweetish, caramel touches, drier malt accents, light bitterness balances and lingers in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Deep ruby colour, thick creamy white head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty. Light cherry fruitiness on the nose. Warming brings out a touch of bubble gum as well. Toffee and caramel malt with a soft earthiness. A bit of molasses and earthiness. Simple, but tasty winter warmer.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Murky dark brown. Scent of butterscotch, wood, maple, brown sugar and caramlized plums. Very bright and fresh taste up front, lacking depth but still very enjoyable - flavors of wood, plums, brown sugar and some chewy bready flavors. A beer that could be a brown ale and could be a scotch ale and could be a strong ale - it’s an interesting multi-style hybrid that has it’s own place. It’s good to find beer like this.
