COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caramel, fruit, and heat, oh my! The winner of this year’s Pro-Am home brewing competition is a round, rich, sweet sipper- a beautiful interpretation of the classic Farmhouse style, and one we are proud to have on draft for as long as it lasts.

Draft at Amato’s. Meh. Not bad. mild slightly funky sweet nose. Nice dark brown with orange tones. Cola and some dark fruit and sweet orange peel. Kind of scattered

On tap at Rackhouse. Pours with a hazed bronze body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are bready, light citrus, lots of caramel, floral and spicy. Flavors are of caramel, cereal, melanodins. A very, very clean malty flavor. Medium bubbles. Nice.

drdisque (570) - Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2011
On draft at Taco Mac on Peachtree. Pours cloudy Copper. Flavor is very sweet, but with enough spice and malt to make it more multidimensional. Rich mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 24, 2011
tap-pours clear copper hue with no head, nose is spicy, phenolic with notes of malt grains, ginger and bitter husky notes. not really waht i was expecting but it is what it is. flavors of estrngent spices throughout-really detracts from the overall enjoyment of this beer. needs some ballance. seems more like a spiced ale than a biere de garde.

onceblind (4578) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2011
On tap during the Milk Stout Nitro Release Party, 2011 GABF. Slightly hazy brilliant orange copper, with a great medium head that settled into a lasting white cap. Big malty nose of amber malts, soft light fruitiness, and bready yeast. Flavor is rich and earthy toffee malt, bread dough, and soft light fruit. Cleverly smooth and quaffable. Just not nuanced or complex.
