Prominent citrus and cherry aroma. The appearance was unremarkable overall but the flavor was complex and a nice balance of citrus fruit with the underlying malt. An excellent beer.

I see this bottle all the time, and have always wanted to buy it. But at $4.99, itís tough having not had it. This is on our 1001 Bottles list, so we didnít have a choice. Glad I didnít buy it before now, because itís not good! It does have a nice sweetness to it, but the mouthfeel is boring, the aroma is weak, and the aftertaste is... well, there isnít one. I am not impressed, and if they want to give me my money back, that would be fine!

5 stars for the characteristic aroma and taste. Caramel for sure in taste and aroma with a scent of creme brule. Very thin foam and pale body.

Red-amber color, off white head. Nutty and cognac aromaís, also, cramel and spices. Taste is medium sweet with a fine spicyness and a touch of sweet chesnut. A stong ale with a malty taste in the finish.

Eyrish (92) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
pours dark amber, bit cloudy. Medium head with lingering lace. medium carbonation. Malty sweet nose hard to describe the smells present, but certainly malt forward. You can tell its a strong beer, alcohol is eminent. Not my favorite style and that proves true in its offering
