It certainly isn’t just a clever name. Rich caramel flavor in balance with the malts on board. Smooth, sweet aftertaste. Pours dark brown/black with a rich creamy head.

12oz bottle ---> glass-----> my stupid mouth. Aroma is nothing but artificial caramel! Not great. But...the overall impression of this thing is not too bad. Slightly sweet, caramel, almost no detectable hops. Smooth, but thin.

I didn’t like this at all. Too sweet, too thin, ill-conceived. It looks ok in the glass, and has a somewhat pleasant aroma, but this didn’tt work for me, at least not at that moment.

Aroma is caramel and nutty. Pours a clear dark brown with an off white head. Taste is caramel and spice. Pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam that rapidly disappears. Artificial caramel and salty notes on the nose. The blend of caramel malt and slightly bitter finish doesn’t mesh as well as it could have or should have.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong sweet caramel and some nuttiness in aroma. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a strong sweetness. Not horrible, not really that great either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. Deep, mahogany with a large creamy foam that lasts well. Sweet nose of caramel candy, with maybe a hint of apple and cherry. Flavor is caramelized sugar, vanilla, lightly tart cherry, and sweet chocolate fudge. Some mild roast on the finish. Medium body is sweet, almost cloying, and has a medium carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Really bad. Almost regret even trying this one. Way too sweet. Artificial tasting. No redeeming qualities

12oz bottle. Clear red-orange color, thin light brown head. Very little lace. Great caramel aroma, tastes exactly like a tootsie roll. It’s not the most refined thing out there, but I like it. Carbonation a bit pronounced. Light sweet taste.
