BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Draught. Another nice warmer that does not attack you with ABV. Dark brown pour that stays pretty still. Aroma is mostly sweet malt and toffee. Flavour is more malt and a little spice. Easy drinking.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours very dark coffee brown with a faint ruby glow. A big beige head left light lacing. Ground coffee and cocoa dust on the nose as well as some toasted malts. Flavor was big on roasted malts, coffee and cocoa. finish was crisp with the brew being medium in body, pretty good.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Re-Rate. Pours a deep murky brown with light tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, a bit nutty, light signs of dark fruit. Flavor is very much the same with a nice mellow alcohol spiciness. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body and just a tad watery, with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty nice, well balanced brew!

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottles, tap, brewery. I have a ton of this each winter. Dark, dark red pour. Cinnamon and malt aroma. Tastes of caramel, malts, a little sweetness, and a hint of alcohol. Thick feel with a lasting aftertaste.

jrob21 (2531) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Pours a nice ruby red color. The second one with a really nice color tonight. Almost no head. This reminds me more of a scotch ale. Malt, yeast, bread, wheat aromas. Smooth with a slightly unpleasant metallic taste on the finish. Can’t make out many more distinguishing characteristics in the flavors. Full bodied. Slight cola, caramel flavors towards the end.

lb4lb (2530) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2009
Pours dark brown with a lasting creamy beige head. Smell is slightly herbal and malty. Taste is a bit bland, but with smooth herbal and light caramel malt. Almost no bitterness. Creamy body with soft to medium carbonation. Pretty drinkable, but not too amazing.

PhillyBeer2112 (2523) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2008
A rich malt heavy ale. Fruity and sweet, somewhat caramelly. A tough rough, though, with a notable alcohol/grainy finish. Full palate.

OhioDad (2493) - 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 wasn’t too bad...
