Tap @ Raccoon Lodge... Poured a deep ruby with an off-white head. Toasty aroma with a bready quality. Foamy texture. Big malts and sweet toffee and almond notes. Dry finish with a hard candy (like butterscotch) sweetness.

2004 draught. Thought this was an alt, it had a nice muted nutty flavor, some dusty notes, but I guess after thinking about it, there was little to no yeast apparency, no sourness. Pretty light for an EPA, hops nowhere to be found. Light roasted malt, mostly dry with some hints of caramel on the finish. Great session beer, no major problems. Medium-light body. Aroma is lightly nutty with a soft even malt. Great deep reddish-orange color with small off-white head.

Draft @ Raccoon Lodge. Pours the color of a penny; clear, deep copper-tan; light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Wet biscuity malts and a light citrus presence in the aroma; basic and crisp. Medium mouthfeel: biscuity maltiness, light cola, and brown sugar forming the core of things; solid malt center while staying crisp; minerals and a very light citrus at the perimeter. I could see drinking a lot of this, but it doesn’t quite have enough to keep things interesting. Medium finish: toasty / bready malts and minerals; nicely dry.

On tap at Raccoon Lodge Portland, Pours out a dark amber topepd with a small sand head. Aroma was of sweet caramell roast malt and a nice roast nut aswell. Taste was more of the sweet malts along with a little floral hop. Pretty tasy.

Smooth malty ale that would make a great session beer in the winter months. Rich caramel flavor on the palate with a slightly earthy finish.

This was quite enjoyable, I think next to the Defroster 2 this is my favorite. Great nutty malt character with some cinnamon spiciness with some caramel and toffee thrown in for good measure.

Tap @ Raccoon Lodge: Darker copper pour with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malt and roasty tones. A little earthy in the flavor with some more malt, roast and caramel, into a crisp floral finish. Some citrus notes in the middle. Not bad.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Dark amber brown with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and pretty expected, with toasted grain, lightly burnt caramel, and a touch of hops. The flavor has a malt profile that follows the aroma with toasty malt and rich dark caramel that borders on roast. Light on the hops and sweet in balance, though not overly so. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. An alright amber ale with a nice rich malt profile that brings a very light roast.

On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours clear dark copper with an off-white head that produces sheets of lace. Softly sweet an peaty nose. Medium-light body and light carbonation. Taste of apples, bread, leather, citrus. A bit of sourness on the finish.
