UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Sample at the Stone 14th. Rating# 3. Very clear copper pour with a dirty off-white head. Caramel malt was the dominating aroma. Flavor is quite nice, rich caramel, a little fruitiness, a bit of heat, but still very drinkable. (1359)

Had this on tap at the 2010 Oregon Brewer’s Festival Buzz tent. Colour.... reddish-brown with no head. Nose... sweet with plenty of toffee, butterscotch and hints of Bourbon. Palate... gently frothy, with a milk toffee character, dates, golden raisins, candied pineapple and long delightful finish!

Oregon Brewers Festival – BuZZ Tent 2010 – Portland, OR
Dark amber in color thin head and clear as a bell. Big malt raisin aroma. Lots of alcohol and tons of spices. This was a big heavy strong beer for the day.
