DenverLogan (858) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
From a 22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with large head in a Lost Abbey chalice. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, amber malts, light bourbon. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, milk chocolate, oak, light bourbon. Rich, flavorful, relatively easy drinking and not too big in alcohol.

Reviewed 7/23/2009 (bottle): Pours a dark reddish brown color body, with a foamy, average creamy off-white head. Malty aroma. Some roasted notes. Watery palate. Some roasted taste. Not bad tasting, a little malty sweet. A little hot.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours cola brown with 1 finger of tan head. S - Milk chocolate, sugary malt, vanilla, roasted malts. Smokey aroma as it warms. T - Dark caramel, roasted malts, caramelized sugar, bitter dark chocolate, brown toast, nutty yeast, hints of grapes and under-ripened berries. Bittering hops adds earthiness to round off the finish. Citrus comes out on the aftertaste. M - Moderate carbonation, light side of medium, almost thin body. No alcohol to speak of. The carbonation drops off toward the end. Warming without the alcohol showing up. Nice cocoa and roasted malts with a solid strain of nutty yeast to glue everything together. The mouthfeel was the weak link but it wasnít a deal breaker. Everything tasted young and fresh. Iím gonna try and out one away for a year or so. Serving type: bottle 11-19-2011

ttutony (759) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Deep brown in the glass with a very thin white to tan head. Nice nutty, roasted aroma with maybe a hint of coffee in there too. Flavors on the palate are similar to the aroma. Very nice.

TizzleJizzle (727) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Aroma of roosted malt & coffee. Poured a deep dark brown color with tiny particles floating in the beer matrix. It tasted almost like a stout, but not as strong. A little watery on the palate for me. Overall this is a great local beer that I wish more people got to experience.

Bottle - pours dark brown and 3/4" tan head. Nice aroma of caramel and toasted malts. Has a medium body but slightly watery. Still, a pretty decent brew.

swanmann (658) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 4, 2007
The bottle pours thick coffee color with ruby highlights and a light tan dissipating head. I get aromas of sweet chocolate and mild hops. Itís got a roasted flavor with a mild bitter finish. Could be a little thicker but itís good. Iíve rated 100! Woohoo!

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from trade with the_lutheran. Pours a mahogany color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and spices. I detect several different fruits such as apple and raisins. Taste is nutty and semi sweet but nicely balanced out with hop goodness. Finishes with a malty touch. Nice brew!

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Pours a reddish ruby brown in the glass with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and toasted with some alcohol aroma. Taste leaves a little to be desired and the beer is a little thin. Though I must say, this is by far the best beer Iíve tried from the brewer.

A beautiful dark and delicious winter warmer! A very fine balance in both sweetness and a dry finish and one that you can enjoy a few of before the alcohol sneaks in to lull you away for the evening. Pairs ups deliciously with my wild hog fajitas! Definitely a great brew to enjoy throughout the winter. Grab some of this brew and Rahrís Bourbon Barrel aged winter warmer as well when you find them!!
