Bottle shared at Natifest ’11. Cloudy reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted leaving good lacing. Good complex dark fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good fruity flavor with a sweet finish that had a moderate duration with no alcohol bite. Very good brew

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle… Pours a dark, cloudy caramel with a small, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is a swirl of toasted malts and herbal roots layered over light cinnamon and ginger with a suggestion of brown sugar. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Good balance – leans bitter, but only by a hair. Caramel malt and dark candy sugar accentuate. Finishes crisp, but hearty and warming. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of JStax. Thanks! JetsonFest II. Cloudy, brownish red appearance with a light brown head. Kind of a spicy, almond, cola, candy sugar, dark fruity aroma. Weird molasses, candy sugar, earthy, strange, sugary sweet flavor. This was a disappointment.

Dogbrick (8136) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Sample at Hills Market during the Brewed Awakening Book Signing and Tasting on 02/05/2012. The beer is a slightly hazy dark brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malts, fruit and yeast. Medium body with a sweet fruity character and flavors of caramel malt, yeast and a bit of alcohol. The finish is malty with a toasty, fruity aftertaste. Good beer overall.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a deep amber-red hued body with a small but lasting white head. Aromas are very fruity, estery, strawberry, dark fruits, prunes, alcohol, brandy and a lot of dark caramel (Special B). Flavors are sweet, malty, caramel, light leather. Very fruity/estery, strawberry. Light alcohol. For some reason a bit tongue numbing. Mouthfeel: very lively carbonation (way too much). Carbonic acid bite. Dry, medium bodied. Good for a new brewery.
