I didn’t like it the first time I tried it. I think it must have just not been the kind of beer I wanted that day. I have tried it since, and I like it. It’s a real sipper, enjoyed in small parcels on the toungue.

Musty, malty scent. Fairly dark with walnut and cherry tastes. Not bad, but not great.

"okay beer. Poured a dark red/brown color with a head that left and didn’t leave much lacing, nice fingers though. Aroma was of dark fruits and bitter/alochol. Flavor was much the same with a hint of sweetness, okay beer, nothing i would search out. "

On draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: One of the classics that I’ve had before, but not on RB. Dark, dark red. The head is thin but quite gluey. Little to no aroma but full-up alcohol-laced, cooked sugar flavors that are fully evident but not overwhelming. Bit of currant? Excellent beer.

Tap & Bottle. Deep dark brown forest with slight foamy head islands. Light liqour bailey’s cream aroma. Very pleasant. Slight sweetness, licorice cream coriander flavor. A little fizzy and boozy. Quite palatable and pleasant. One of the better of its kind. Tastes like it comes from a potent belgian ale bean - coffee-lattee note. Lasting cream coriander latte finish.
