sonnycheeba (3357) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Cask. Pours clear, dark amber with thick, frothy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel and biscuit malt, grassy and floral hops, light spice, figs, and some berries. Flavor is sweet malt forward with some light hops adding a touch of bitterness and some dark fruit esters; dry, smooth finish. Cask is definitely the way to serve this one with smooth, medium body and low carbonation.

dnstone (2131) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Sweet and spicey aroma. Deep amber color with light white head. Cherry flavor, a bit mediciney, then sweet with cinamon/holiday spice. Pretty good, only the medicine flavor detracts.
