12oz bottle. Clear red / brown color. Little off-white / khaki head. Lightly smokey toasty malts. Caramel. Little sweet taste, some bitter. Good, smooth lighter carbonation. Little dark fruit aroma. Not much alcohol taste for 9.5 ABV, that’s a plus.

Bottle thanks to Roonai. Pours a clear brown with a red hue and an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of toffee, caramel and sweet grains and a bit of backing alcohol. Flavor is sweet with grains, toffee and caramel wit a decent amount of alcohol in the finish.

BVery (7891) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Somewhat opaque brown orange pour with a minimal head. Terrific aroma of caramel malt and bread. Smooth palate. Taste is also caramel malt. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent brew.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper penny colour, light tan head. Aroma is caramel malts with fruity and boozy notes threatening domination. Sweet malty palate, but not enough bread or toast to make me happy, it’s mostly fruity caramel that just isn’t all that yummy. Warm finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Pours a striking clear amber with short lived tan head. The aroma is sweet sticky malts that blend into mild dark fruity esters and just noticeable caramel candy notes. The taste is fairly thick and smooth and modestly rich with notes of sweet crystal malts, sweet malts and an increasing level of rich sweet dark fruity esters notes like plum, prune, raisins and a bit of ripe cherries. Like the nose a sense of caramel carries on deep in the background. Very tasty brew.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2010
12 oz. bottle as a trade extra from dstructo- thanks again! Pours a cloudy amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of raisins, figs, caramel malts, brown sugar, cereal grains, cardboard, and chocolate malts. Flavor of chocolate and caramel malts, prunes, raisins, alcohol, cardboard, and honey. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel. Dry finish. Something was a bit oxidized in this one, and I think I would have liked it more if not.
