deaconmike (375) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear reddish brown with thick foamy head that disappears fairly quickly. Heavy caramel malt aroma. Similar taste with some dark ripe fruit notes. Kinda syrupy sweet. Not much carbonation. Overall, not bad; just too sweet for my taste.

GJF (1241) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2013
This starts off really nice. Dark red pour. Smooth body with lots of caramel malt and dark fruit flavors. But it gets old about halfway through. Flavor becomes syrupy sweet.

Trade with Aurelius - thanks! Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a thin but long lasting off-white head. Aroma has some nice bubble gum accents, a touch of dates and raisins. Flavor is belly warming with some nice toffee accents, some pruney notes, some dates and raisins and a hint of cotton candy. Thickish mouthfeel. Nice winter treat.
