Lightly hazed orange/umber color. Just a thin lid of light beige bubbles. Quite sweet and grainy in scent. Aromas of corn silage and alcohol. This really brings back memories of feeding the cows just prior to milking. Heavy malty flavors with a with caramel and light fruit. A touch of floral hops help keep things a touch sweet. Mild spice in the finish and linger. Some dry grain and malt flavors in the linger. A stronger malty amber ale.

Bottle shared by Azurelimits. Served in a tulip. Pours a copper-bronze color with a very thin head that quickly fades into a thin white color. There are a few bubbles on top as well. The nose is quite plain with just a tad bit of pine and cinnamon along with some caramel backing. The taste is along the same lines--pine and a bit of faint spicing plus a bit of caramel sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall, nothing offensive as it doesnít take the spicing too far, though itís quite boring. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-20-2010

Strong fruity aroma with raisin and hints of vanilla. Brown color, off-white head, fair lace. Smooth, sweet, fruity, little bitterness. Long lasting finish with raisin and a alcohol burn. Not bad at all. Reminded me of some good but macro ales from Belgium.

Bottle. Hazy amber pour, with thin white head. Sweet malt, light brown sugar, and fruit. Not bad, better than I thought it was going to be.

ben4321 (4877) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle at the Marriott West Loop, 11/18/13

Aroma: The nose is malty and a little sweet! some fruit notes, and a bit of spice
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is on the sweet side, but balanced, nice spice, hop notes, and a little alcohol
Palate: This one is medium bodied, with a nice: soft and clean mouthfeel to it
Overall Impression: This one is certainly worth trying, and it has a really nice mouthfeel to it, but it is not an overly impressive beer. Nice, slightly dull winter seasonal.

12 oz. bottle from Kegs and Barrels, Plano, TX. Aroma is of caramel malts, spice and a light dark fruit. Flavor is mostly similar. Caramel with a chewy biscuit malts, light spices, and grassy English hops. Very much has an English feel to it. Texture is lightly grainy. Medium in body. Finish is clean and sweet. Nothing really bold or over-the-top but it does have a nice drinkability. Had no problem killing half a 6íer with a friend.

Aurelius (4714) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Squat 12 oz bottle. Clear, woody brown beer, not much head. Aroma is slightly doggy (ding) and mustardy over a nutty malt aroma. Woody flavor, bittering was a little clumsy and slightly astringent. The body was reasonably mouthy, but the bittering kind of messed it up. Light caramel, light sweetness towards the end. Medium, moderately bitter finish. St. Arnie better get back to praying. ABC, Betton.
