DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Pours clear amber red. Candied fruit aromas; palate is very thick, with fruitcake & syrup flavors. Thick & heavy, this is a sipping beer; good, but a little goes a long way.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Beautiful dark red violet appearance with a tan head. Sweet dark red fruity, sweet malty, mild earthy hoppy nose. Big caramel, dark fruity flavor with some piney hops and a warming finish. Fairly smooth but the flavor is a little tame.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap @ brewery. Slightly hazy rustic burnt orange with a ligh cream colored head. Aroma a little hard to pick up on, but I got some grapefruit, toffee, and a bit of wet dank wood. Taste was perfectly smooth and rounded, yet robust. Not very bitter or boozy, with mostly sweet toffee malty tones, light fruitiness, ending with some gently bittering grassy hop tones. No one flavor really dominates, and certainly doesn’t have the complexity, body, or burn of a 10%er. Dangerously gentle.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Tap at Renegade - hazy amber pour - fairly thick lace for th abv - nose of sticky toffee and caramel - medium bodied, a bit light-bodied for the style and abv, making it too easy to drink - a lot of bright fruitiness up front - mango, orange, cherry - the middle brings some caramel, lightly earthy/woody hops, some spicy character - peppery alcohol in the finish, but all things considered, the abv is masked well - decent, just needs a bit more heft and complexity to make it a proper sipper, as something of this abv needs to be.

Ratman197 (13266) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2011
On tap at Renegade poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of toffee, carmel, earthiness and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.
