Draft. Brown color. Minimal head. Not much aroma at all. Doesn't appear to be too cold. I taste some dark chocolate. No lacing. Not bad a bad beer from a BMC company.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours a nice clear deep rutty red – amber with short lived tan head. The aroma offers up a good deal of ripe brown sugar coated cherries, prunes, some earthy dates and a dash of caramel. The taste is bold and a bit on the bright side with a mix of cherries, earthy dates, sweet prune hard candy and then a sugary maltiness as well as a dab of caramel on the side. It smooths out into a sweet finish. A bit of age should allow this to blend and pull up additional yummy complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper with an off white head. Deep, rich and malty. Toffee, toasted bread, lighter peaty notes, with light wisps of earthy hoppy notes. Bold and assertive, but not overbearing. A solid sipper, luckily I’m cranking the A-C in my apartment, because it’s over 90F outside. Either way, this is a solid beer regardless of season.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby cola color with a substantial tan head that diminishes rather quickly to a thin cover. Aroma is roasted malt and dried dark fruit. Taste is sweet roasted malt, buttery caramel, molasses and prunes. Some mild tartness at the end. Alcohol well hidden. A little cloying, but well balanced and quite good.

This is the type of beer that makes a great Chirstmas / Winter beer. Its a 100 degrees out, but this is stiil a very good beer. Sweet toffee malts with boozy nose. Syrupy mild sweet flavors of molasses, brown sugars, dark fruits, with a presence of alcohol. Not getting the peat. Good smooth full body. Good job Leinenkugel. 2012 limited release.

On tap at Oriley & Conways, pours a clear dark brown with a nice red hue in the light and a creamy tan head, the aroma is of heavy malt and caramel with some scotch notes, the flavor has a nice full front end with a ton of caramel and malt and a finish of scotch that is nearly perfect, mouthfeel is crazy smooth and delicious, awesome stuff.
