trapped (1380) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 3, 2015
Draught. Pours hazy dark amber with small off-white foamy head, spicy/hoppy aroma, medium carbonation, spicy caramel taste with piney hops flavor, long bitter finish. Very stimulating.

Can. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma and taste are as the name implies - a train wreck. Listen to the advice on the can - "Approach with caution"

superspak (3412) - Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/1/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, honey/maple, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Good amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light pine, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malts, honey/maple, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial amber ale style. All around good complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt, honey/maple, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. The flavors were not as bold as I would have expected given the ABV; but it was still really quite enjoyable.

Nephilium (1498) - Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2015
Slight notes of bready malt and a touch of honey to start. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with a nice cap of white head. Slightly sweet flavor, with a touch of drying bitterness. Slick mouthfeel and heavy body makes this a sipper. The alcohol is well hidden, but there’s not much going on here. I was hoping for at least a little more notes from the maple and honey.

ADfan (659) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
The beer pours an amber color with a medium head. The smell has malts up front followed by some sweetness. Taste has some mild hops up front followed by some wood an spruce. Good finish.

Tessic (934) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
This ale poured a medium red colour with a white frothy head. Scents include honey, bananas, bubblegum and a faint hint of maple/caramel. First sip was smooth with a sweet honey,smoke, maple flavour in the forefront. Flavours of hops, caramel and smoke finishing with a light hop bitterness.

chucklemation (800) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2014
This one truly is a train wreck. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet banana and honey. Flavor is a harshly bitter honey and banana. This was just awful. I was very tempted to drain it.

deyholla (8124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2014
On tap. Pours a hazy deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a grassiness and a bit of maple. Flavor combines grass and sweet grains with an underlying caramel and maple.
