dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a dark amber with a huge, rocky white head. The aroma is slightly spicy with a definite toffee malt aroma. The flavor is light with the profile being dominated by a light sweetness that is complimented with a balanced spice and floral hops flavor. It finishes clean without any stickiness, but seems slightly over carbonated relative to the flavor profile. Overall, a solid entry into an ambiguous and huge style of beer.

Awesome Beer. Served in a yard-of-beer style glass with wooden holder, very nice amber color, full of caramel flavor with a spice finish. One of my very favorites.

Aroma: Light carmel with a hint of spice. Taste: Sour Background that leads to a sweet finish. Warm alcohol notes. Sharp fizz on the mouth at first but that dies down fast into a smooth textured finish. A pleasant experiance.

boto (2078) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 2, 2007
33cl bottle: This one pours a clear, amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it, and it lingers awhile. There is a constant fizzing coming from the bottom of the glass. The aroma isnít overly strong, yet it is very pleasant. I get some caramel, spices, fruits and a touch of breadiness. The taste is some caramel , toffee, fruits, some of the yeastiness, and a touch spicy. The flavors donít stand out, but blend nicely for a fine brew.
