Clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of some wood and toasty grains. Flavor has notes of caramel, wood, apple, plum/raisin and a hint of chocolate and spiciness. Moderately sweet with a touch of hop bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Medium, creamy body with pleasant subtle carbonation. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark copper color with a fluffy diminishing cream colored head. Toasted wheat bread aromas, with some prunes and citrus. Tangy flavors of orange and toasted malt. Some metallic qualities. Raw hops seem to have a presence. Seems young and lifeless, even with a rather bubbly feel.

Bottle shared courtesy of Fatty (thanks!). Poured a medium brown color with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of earth, fruits, toffee and light spices. Tastes of pretty much the same.

Thanks to Fatty for this one. Pours a cloudy amber with a small head. Aroma of dark fruit, candied sugars and toffee. Picked up less in the flavor, but a bit of spices and sugar. A decent brew, have to compare the McChouffe to this one.

Cloudy amberorange colored with a thin head. Sweet yeast and fruit aroma, rather sticky and artificial. Yeast dominates the flavor with a sweet toffee tone. Quite uninteresting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
More amber than brown, this stuff poured with some haziness and a puffy off white head. Aroma is malty with coriander and pepper. Taste is thick with some eartiness, malt and dry bitter orange. A bit on the sweet side with the alcohol nicely masked .
