SamP01 (560) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a huge long lasting creamy tan head. Very good head retention and lacing through out. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, dark fruit, espresso and cacao esters fill the senses. Taste is roasted dark caramel malt, espresso beans and cacao, a bit of dark fruit with some mild bitterness. Palate is a full body, creamy texture with mild carbonation. Finish is of roasted dark caramel malt, yeast, espresso beans and cacao, some dark fruity notes ending has some mils bitterness with some lingering roasted espresso flavor. Overall a very good, flavorful and enjoyable brew, nice.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle... Clear dark-orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is full of all kinds of malty, fruity, doughy goodness - chocolate chips, white cake batter, strawberry jam (Jeff hit it right on the nose with that description), dried apricot, sugar cookie and rumors of cinnamon and resin. Full-bodied and nearly chewy with lively carbonation. The flavor offers sweet, malty notes of white cake batter, graham and cookie dough accentuated and kept in check by moderate peppery bitterness. Finishes crisp and bittersweet with a gentle kiss of acidity. Very nice.

TURDFERGUSON (3951) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle on sale at sam’s. Now I know why. Slightly nutty, roast, light hops, metal nose. Flavor is similar- some cardboard, metal, sweeter nutty malt. Dump. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2012
The aroma is musty with paper, butter, caramel malt, and grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall drinkable but not really enjoyable.

TAR (2475) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Mahogany hue with a light haze. Persistent ivory foam spackle. Nicely balanced nose of English toffee, breadcrusty malt, spruce resin, strawberry jam, blood oranges, and peppery hops. Characterful puttylike yeastiness. Plentiful dextrins, to boot. Underlying plastic and red licorice. Soft and creamy on the tongue. Bottle-conditioned. Initially fluffy with dry breadcrusty malt coinciding with a bouncy base of toffee-drizzled nuts kissed with a drying spruclike hop whisper. Dab of roasty sharpness is artfully incorporated, exuding with just enough strength to enhance the delectably lush and clean base malt. Peppery, earthy hop bitterness is perfectly rigid and sports delicate leafy acid as well as complementary levels of resin. Remarkably ripe and luscious berrylike esters contribute juiciness and depth as well as contrasting vibrancy. Also some phenolics which lend character as well as vivacity, and beautifully contrasting dryness to the sturdy bread-laden malt. Closes with superbly clean dextrinous malt and an assertive push of earthy hop fervency. Aside from a bit too much emphasis on the resin/citrus, the aroma is a splendid showcase of fine-tuned malt. And awesome texture all around. This has all the qualities of a well-executed Rogue beer (particularly their Strong Ales), and is seemingly a nod to John Maier in all its characterful yeast (putty and pistachio), robust British hop signature and exemplary showcase of malt. A dead-on rendition.

teddybeer (2221) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2012
[Thanks to omhper]. Orangish colour with a vey nice, frothy, foamy, creamy, moderate lasting and beautiful lacing off white head. Aroma is slightly caramelish, malty and mild hoppy. Flavour is moderate bittery at the beginning, fruity notes are present: orange and citrus hints; slightly caramel and a final with a decent bitterness and an average duration in the aftertaste. Carbonation is soft to medium. Body is medium to high. Texture is oily.

Caramel aromas and flavors. Hops balance out the malts. Overall a pretty good winter ale.
