kidmartinek (3545) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2009
This beer look like a beer should when you pour it in a beer glass. Its 80% opaque brown malt colored with a 1 inch beige head that settles to a 1/8" faster than id prefer. The aroma is clean and has notes of spring water and clove. The flavor is heavy with heavily toasted, roasted, almost burnt malt, and clove. Appeal is smooth and easy. Lacing is light on the glass. Finish is spicy and malty. Tastes good when its 68 in your house and 105 outside.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Sampled from 12-oz bottle and shared by moelikebeer. Pours a clear dark copper brown colored brew with an average sized beige head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malt, cloves, a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, and white pepper. Taste is medium to full bodied, with flavors of roasted caramel malt, a hint of molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Finish is more towards the malty side with a clove and herbal aftertaste. A typical Christmas sliced strong ale.

bleeng (1499) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2009
12 oz bottle. Dark brown, fluffy tan head. Nose is sharp, peppers, spices, and a bit of turpentine. Taste comes off spicy, a bit malty, peppery, and that off taste of turpentine/paint thinner. This distracts what should be a very nice beer. OK to drink and goes down easy but that "odd" flavor does not do this beer any favors.
