Bottle at Madsberg 2008 Tasting. Pours deep red with a small, creamy, off-white, film head. Aroma has fine caramel, lots of hops. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet, lots of caramel and sugar. Fair amount of bitterness in the finish, but it should have been less sweet and cloying.

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2007
on tap-pours a light tan head that laces and dark copper color. Aroma is very faint sweet. Taste is medium malt-caramel, secondary sugar, yeast, faint spice. A very tame, malty interpretation of the style(Oh, it’s not a double/Dubbel, it’s an American Strong Ale that’s very tame).

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Medium malty aroma. Something like caramel. Ruby toned, dark brown color with a beige head that was respectable. Thin to medium bodied. Near creamy carbonation. Something of plum pit and brown sugar. A bit tangy. Nearly astringent finish. Not a great deal of hop. A suggestion of that sour note found in most Siletz presentations. Mouth tends to pucker a bit. Pretty drinkable.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle... Hazy “Longhorn Orange” ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fruity, nutty aroma of overripe avocado, toasted cashews and unidentified berries. Well-balanced flavor barely leans toward the bitter side with a caramel foundation and a plethora of earthy hops. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Lightly bitter finish with a rumor of salt. Thanks go out to boboski for sharing the bottle!
