BREWMUSKCLES (2302) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2014
A LITTLE GRAVY AND SOME SWEETNESS the beer has some character and moderate body with a little thickness which adds appeal. soft carbonation some caramel and a touch of rum like alcohol this was pretty good with a moderate finish.

chinchill (2146) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Served in a pint glass at the brewery. A: hazy brown body with a decent off-white head that had moderate retention but left some sticky patterned lacing on the glass. Feel: Soft, near medium carbonation. Medium body. Aroma: Herbal, floral and mildly hoppy with a biscuit base. Taste: Average hops for (American) style. Bitter and sweet and almost equal balance. Well crafted but lacks complexity. O: on style and modestly above average.

Hangover (1065) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Dark brown pour with a long lasting tan head. Aroma is of hazlenut and roasted malts. Slightly syrupy sweet flavor, with a lingering toasty/woodsy malt backbone. Body is nice and creamy. Maybe just a bit too artificially sweet, but it’s tasty.

tnkw01 (1194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2014

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Didn’t love the aroma on this one. Kinda smells like coffee breath. Clear, medium to slightly dark brown. Bad label. Looks like Atlanta is shooting me the bird. Roasted, lightly sweet, lightly astringent. Lightish body. Roast finish. Meh. ABC Liquors, Betton.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2014
12 oz. bottled 08-04-14. Clear red-copper with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is earthy cocoa, toffee and a touch of red pepper. Tastes of lightly sweet cocoa, toffee, toast, raisin, a bit of sour cream and a touch of peppery wooden hop. Near-medium body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and eventually develops a great sessionable balance.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Reddish brown, thin beige head. Smells like brown sugar and molasses, plus some pine. Taste is sweet, but not overly sweet. Plenty of malty sweetness, and enough hops to keep it interesting. Not bad.
