jcr (2544) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle. Deep amber body with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, apricot and toasted grain The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Some English characteristics, especially the caramel, but not a lot. Too sweet.

Nephilium (1680) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Aroma is sweet caramel and biscuit, pours a clear amber/brown with a dusting of light brown head. This has some nut and roast notes, but is predominantly sweet caramel. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky, with a sweet finish. I’d prefer a bit more roast and dryness, but it’s not bad.

Beer of month club. Pours a rich copper with thin white head - very attractive. Nose is a little odd - a lot going on - some malt, lemon zest, and a V-8 like smell, too. Taste is malt, caramel, and some bitterness on the finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep amber beer with a medium foamy off white head. Subtle nose of toasted bread, light caramel, and candied nuts. Flavor is a bit more pronounced with a sweet toffee base overlaid with some scorched nuts and toast finishing with a slightly acrid bitterness. Pretty good.

Lots of caramel malt and sweet flavors. Not overly complicated and none of the flavors are over the top. Very nice and balanced. An enjoyable beer.
