BrettTaylor (624) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Poured as a taster - will re-rate once/if I have a full serving. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma - mostly malty with some hop notes underneath; caramel really obvious. Taste - alcohol is there and a bit peppery, some citrus/more resin notes from the hops, and malty sweetness underneath. This was okay, but wasnt something Id probably go out and buy again.

On tap Taco Mac Cumming. Hazy light ambernwoth a thin foamy ivory head. Aroma of sweet sugars, caramel, and pine. Huge hop bitterness upfront. Boozy on the finish. Definitely warms you up. Nice sweet malt, burnt sugars, and caramel in between.

Imported by bob from South Carolina. Nice. Hazy cider color. Rich toffee and tea nose. Syrupy. Sweet palate. Hefty caramel. Just enough hops and booze to balance. Very nice.

Hazy filmy amber. Aroma of pine, booze, and caramel. Taste is big sweetness, toffee and caramel. Boozy. Strangely Spritzy for being a big heavy beer. Meh.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Pours a cloudy brownish yellow, some lacing. Bready malts, hints of citrus on the nose. Malts, brown sugar on the tip of the tongue; big bitter flavors at the back. Nothing special.

boxofrane (2332) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a medium sized khaki colored head that has solid retention. The aroma has some pine, floral notes, a bit of a caramel malt, some candied sugar, a mix of a lot of things. The taste is really sweet, brown sugar, really off aftertaste. Sorry, bad.

BeerandBlues2 (10546) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy dark orange with a medium, rocky and frothy off-white head, medium to long retention with good lacing. Aroma is peppery alcohol, light honey and caramel malt notes, toast and nutty malt with pear esters, earthy and pine hops. Flavor is medium hops, moderate bitterness accentuated by the peppery and spicy alcohol, background sweet malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation with a light alcohol warmth.

kramer (5329) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy caramel body with some small chunks floating about under a large foamy off-white head. The nose is pretty well dominated by the caramel maltiness and a slight yeastiness, pretty minimal hoppiness. The flavor is coming across as a bit tired and muddled, lots of heavy caramel malt and not much complexity at all. It seems a little lacking in hops as well. Nothing about this is all that exciting. Fairly well hidden alcohol at least. Medium bodied with some slight clinginess on the finis and soft fizzy carbonation. Not something that Id seek out for a second go-around.
