shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Lactic caramel malt and pine aroma. Amber with large head. Sweet orange caramel malt and lightly bitter pine/alcohol flavor. Not bad but nothing special.

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle: Dark amber-gold with a creamy, off-white head. Fruit-cake aroma. Sweet, fruity and bready....a touch of molasses. Leafy bitter with a bit of spice. Well-hidden alcohol. Tasty.

bigguns22 (676) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Ok beer would not drink on the regular. Nice look pour is medium amber with a lot of orange white head that disapates fast. Aroma is sweet,malty and yeasty. Earthy flavors that are balanced with malty sweetness.

crajun (960) - , Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2014
bottle to glass. odd in that I liked the first half of the bottle much better than the second half - got cloying with too much cane sugar and also a little funky. first 1/2 was a well made strong ale with balance of sweet, malt and hops. will try again.t

PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Apalachee - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour - quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma has some molasses accents, a touch of kid’s vitamins. Flavor is slightly muddled with some heavy date-like fruity accents, some toasty notes, a touch of brown sugar. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Needs some refinement.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 11/20
Beerenberger (1444) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Caramel, florals, honey, and touch of citrus constitute the nose. A clear orange-amber pour with a quickly disapearing white head and no lacing. Caramel, malts, and honey, make way for a nicely balanced citrus hopped finished. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a nice balance of malts to hops with the former taking the slight lead. Alcohol content is well hidden - too easy to drink.

Cybercat (3307) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Comes out of the growler a beautiful, bubbly dark amber with a very thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but invites with citrus, malty and evergreen tones. Pleasing flavor echoes the malty, evergreen and citrus notes of the aroma, making it seem rather like an IPA - an Imperial IPA, perhaps, what with its subtle alcohol nip. Texture is smooth, though a bit lacking in fizz and firmness. Don’t be lazy - drink ’er down!

degbert (1116) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark red-amber with a brief, cream-colored, large-grained, lacy head. Nose is golden raisins, spice, and black tea, with a faint floral hop overtones. Savory on the tongue; reminds me of an English old ale more than anything, with more black tea, spices, and smoky notes. No sweetness. Finish is dry and bitter. Good.
