Great pour and a good initial smells but doesnít really follow through. Pours a really dark amber with super awesome head and lacing. Carpet lacing. Finishes with medium bitterness, and a little citrus. Tap at Black Squirrel.

Draught at Akkurat Black with a tan head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some notes of dishing liquid. Medium body with a light to medium bitterness. Fresh, hoppiness.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a honey copper body with an off white head. Sweet caramel malt, lightly wheaty with fruity esters, pine, soap and paper. This was all over the place.

blipp (5977) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle (2006). Pours copper with a huge beige head. Aroma is caramel, apple, and general fruity esters. Medium body. Flavor is again fruit that’s a bit on the tart side, peach and apricot, caramel, maybe a bit of brown sugar. A bit old, not awful but not that good either.

This is the worst of the Otter Creek selections Iíve tried to date. Itís geared for the cold weather, and I suppose Iíd enjoy it a bit more if I was out in the cold and snow as it is quite warming. It pours a brown, amber looking color, medium to small tanish head and a little bit of lacing on the glass. Nothing too outstanding. The aroma wasnít bad, malty and a brown sugary smell. Definitely malty and sugary but not very well balanced with not the most pleasant aftertaste. Drinkable, but not much more than that

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2008
Peachy colour and malt in aroma. Thin, very dry, and astringency in finish. Malt and fruit but not very drinkable.Perhaps I would enjoy this better if I didnít have a beer in a long while.

Courtesy of Degarth. Pours hazy copper with weak head. The first whiff of the aroma is inviting with a pulse of aged muted pine hops, some mild dark fruit, grains, malts and late in the draw mild vegetation. Hmm. The taste has an initial blunted spike of pine hops followed by blended sweet malts and lightly roasted malts. It ends with some hoppiness and an annoying level of soapiness.
