Dacrza (542) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2014
DATE TASTED: September 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint...OCCASION: O’s bust open a 10-3 lead in Game One of the ALDS... APPEARANCE: intimidatingly dark mahogany body; swiftly descending off-white head; flat, inconsistent up top... AROMA: thick, intense, sweet syrupy punch that encompasses a beautifully smoky embrace; hickory also mates with flattened hops to approximate a brown ale/porter mash-up ... PALATE: weighty, rather flat cola mouthfeel; teeth must withstand some energy, but the warmth sits idly on the tongue--heavy.....TASTE: sweet and malty with the syrup and smoke mitigating a rather uneventful flavor; a bit of biscuit late, but not what the aroma promises... OVERALL: Autumnal, yes--but the allure of its scent doesn’t measure up when sipped; lo alcohol content makes it sessionable....

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nutty and lightly sweet with a touch of chocolate and burnt caramel. It tastes rather sweet up front, lots of caramel and toffee notes, which fade to a hazelnut like sweetness on the finish. Light bodied with minimal cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty ho-hum even for the style.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with fizzy beige head. Aroma is toasted and light caramel malts, light mixed nuts, faint chocolate, and faint earthy notes. Flavor matches the nose with a toasted malt profile and light earthy hop bitterness; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

boxofrane (2258) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle from Wegmans Collegeville. Pours typical brown with a medium sized tan head that has average retention. The aroma has roasted malt, a slight bit of cocoa, and a tiny bit of coffee bean in the distance. The taste has a milk chocolate / roasted malt character. This is not complex but it is easy to drink and decent.

Metalchopz (2404) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Seems to be called "Harvest Barn Ale" now. Pours a clear brown colour with a nice creamy beige head that is everlasting and with lacing. Beautiful coffee aromas. Roasted malt with some nice bitterness and hints of yeast. A good roasted malty brew for harvest.

njnut (273) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured into pint from draft. A clear brown with limited off white head. Aroma was a complex mix of malts, maple syrup, vanilla and spice. Taste is similar starts sweet with the maple but slightly bitters in the finish. Not bad, easy drinker.

N3lson1 (253) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Drank out of a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Aromas of chocolate with a hint of smokiness. Pours a beautiful dark brown with slight amber color, a brown head that dissipates quickly, with little carbonation. Great taste of roasted malts with a slightly dry, earthy finish.
