A rich, hearty ale brewed for a clean, dry, roasty palate.

Bottle of the 2002 vintage. Copper to brown color with a tan head. Malty and a little sweet with little flavor and very thin.

I'm not sure what they were trying for with this one. It smelled a bit like a barleywine and vaguely tasted like one. But I didn't really enjoy it.

I am on the fence about this one. I really want to like it but it has turpentine like bitterness. Now having said that it has a wonderful caramel malt and toffee taste as well. The aroma is floral hops and some pine. I have had better pine flavored ales and even though it’s not bad it could be better.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper--same as an old penny--with a small off-white head. Smells of some sour citrusy hops, also a little metallicky as well. Thin mouthfeel, not very bitter, with a lingering "blah" finish. After the "blah," I get a little bit of a grassy aftertaste. Not terribly impressed with this one.

Clear dark amber colour with thin off white head. No distinguishable nose. Mild hop taste with slight dry bitter finish.

Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is sweet, nutty, hints of citrus, maybe hints of coffee. Aroma is not that strong though. Flavor is very watery, but after that there is some nut, coffee, pine, citrus. Palate is watery and very thin. If it weren’t so watery it seems like it would be a solid brew, but in this form it doesn’t do much for me.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, a hint of brown sugar, a bit of anise and plastic. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, a hint of rye and light spice with a smooth dry lightly astringent finish.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Dark amber color with a sweet sugary aroma. Taste has some spices and excess sugar, plus marshmallows. Unofortunately, this tasted like AB’s Bourbon Cask ale that I tried recently. Not all that good.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a crystal clear reddish brown beverage with an off-white creamy head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was light with some slightly fruity esters. There were also grassy notes along with a slight medicinal backdrop. The body was medium-full with a soft carbonation and light creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly bitter and stays that way throughout the medium finish. The medicinal nose also manifests itself in the flavor ... yuck.

Hoppy aroma with a light. coppyr color. Not a lot of head. A little pine but otherwise an earthy flat taste.
