DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap at the Grad in Davis, CA. Poured a deep red color and smelled of clove and spice. Sweet malty flavor, but lack of carbonation really took away from the experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Poured into an imperial pint glass. Beautiful finger and half of off-white head on a dark red colored body. The aroma is nice but faint. Caramel and dry barley. The taste heavy on the malt but not too sweet. There’s a little hit of lemon bitter in the middle. It finishing long and dry. The texture is thicker with low carbonation. Very enjoyable.

A - filtered deep copper red with 1" head. Good lacing S-floral on the nose, with faint cloves and autumn spices. Floral quality followed by rooty vegetable. Mild honey and brown sugar too. Slight astringent and alcohol. T-floral and malty. Mild ending with subtle malty finish that lingers as it diminishes smoothly. Middle is malts and pine with vivid alcohol base. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ericdevin (721) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle via Jason + Elizabeth. Pours a medium brown color, off white head. Nose is big, caramel and candi sugar, raisins, and just a hint of the rye. Body is medium, surprising in its lack of malt. Finish slightly tart. Very interesting, can’t complain.
