Sweet toffee aroma. Auburn color with little head. Lots of toffee malts in the flavor, with brown sugar, molasses, a little butter, well balanced with some earthy bitterness. Delicious brew - one of the best in the style I have had in some time. Thanks Sebastian.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy nbutler11. Dark cherry red pour, thick creamy white head and very thick lacing. Raisins and dry berries in the nose, dry fruits and some chocolate. Sticky dry raisin flavors, sharp hops, some slight roast. Interesting, not sure of the style exactly but it’s good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky amber red color, with a small off white head, decent lacing. The heads leaving! Aroma is salt water taffe(Sp?) fresh hops, tinging on the nose. Flavor is sweet smooth, with a nice hop bite, lots of booze bitterness with apple in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours dark brown, almost looks like a porter. Aroma of toffee and caramel, with some dried fruits. Taste is dominated by alcohol, then the sweet malt and caramel flavors come through. Earthy finish. Decent beer, don’t think I could have more than 2 at one time.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
sweet, citrus and caramel; altogether caramel aroma; fairly slick and flat carbonation; average appearance; bittersweet, sugary, citrus flavor; the amount of alcohol IS hidden; i am not sure about this, but it might be trying to be too much--simplify.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 Bottle from cbkscubert. Dark hazy amber color with nice tan head that vanishes quickly leaving good lacing. Aroma of malts and grape juice. Taste was malty with rasins, plums yeast, soy, and plums combined with a sour funk. Slight sour/ bitter finish. Funny, this beer smelled better than it tasted.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Nice looking dark amber color. No real aroma. Flavor is very much malt-forward, with no real hop presence. Strong, flavorless beer. Where’s the hops?

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cola color with a sweet molasses aroma mixed with hops. Taste is the same with a caramel aftertaste. A little bitter after the swallow. The alcohol content comes through throughout the beer.
