CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye: Pours a transparent dark copper with a thin ring of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted British malt and some mild earthy piny hops. Body starts fairly full and malty sweet with some mild butterscotch and toffee complexity. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 25, 2007
Poured a clear golden chestnut color with a thin off-white head. Light caramel malt with light clovey spice. Mild alcohol notes. Malty flavor with mild fruit, just a hint of spice and light alcohol. Some sweetness. Fair amount of warmth. Some toasty aroma when this warmed. Medium bodied.

Medium brown pour with chestnut hues. Thin notions of a white head recede quickly, leaving an oily carbonated film behind. Mostly clear with ruby and yellowish highlighting. Aroma is comprised of lightly toasted caramel malt up front. No hint at high alcohol, well masked to say the least. Sugary, interesting. Light spicing, mostly coriander and nutmeg. A little soapy as well. Flavor is sweet and nutty caramel malts, grainy and toasty. Slight tartness, nice bitterness levels throughout. Slightly syrupy palate, too fizzy at points, but an otherwise reasonable carbonation level. Still not a trace of alcohol. An agressive fullness is left behind in a sugar finish. Pretty good balance here, other than in the palate.

Thanks to bu11zeye for this beer. Poured a dark mahogany with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet nuts, fruits, and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is extremely smooth, with notes of sweet fruit, nuts, toffee, a bit of smoke. Alcohol is undetectable in the initial flavor and only shows up to balance out the finish. I could not believe this is 8%. It drinks like a refreshing session beer. Not the most complex beer Iíve had, but so well balanced, flavorful and drinkable that it really sat well with me. Could have downed two or there more of these (which is why itís probably a good thing I only had one at my disposal). A surprise treat from Texas that made my evening.

On draft at the Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth. Dark brown pour with small head. Caramel and malts in the nose. Big malty flavor, sweet caramel, brown sugar, and mild spice. Smooth bodied, full flavor. Nice winter brew.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2007
12oz bottle via trade with legion242 - Thanks - Pous dark brown with a short creamy tan head. Aromas of caramel, yeast, toffee, toasted malts, and a whiff of chocolate. Flavor is caramel, toffee, toasted malts, chocolate and even a little coffee. Medium body with light carbonation. Really though this wasnít too bad...

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Courtesy bu11zeye. Dark ruby brown and a small off white layer of foam. Nose of lightly toasted malt, english hops, and airy, bready yeast. Flavor adds toffee and cocoa. Medium body, balanced. Easy drinking, would never guess 8%. Decent.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Iíd like an ABV check on this one...it is virtually invisible, leading me to think it might be incorrectly derived. Very light- bodied brew with an emphasis on the malts and less so on the "holiday" spicing...thank goodness. Pretty refreshing malt bomb with some nuttiness in the finish. But virtually NO warming effect, making me think this might be more in the 4-5% range....but I like it! Thanks Corny!

A tan head fades quickly above a body I can only peg as "reddish-brown". I find a mixture of both pale and dark malts in the aroma (which I find intrguing) along with a lemony/floral hoppiness. Flavor finds a "candy bar of maltiness" which includes chocolate, caramel and nuts... along with some mild, sour/bitter hops. A little thin in the mouth with a dry finish. A sessionable brew for the ABV.

Strong yeast aroma with a slight coffee scent. Deep brown with a medium head. Light bitter coffee flavor with some tangy roasted malts.
