Capa (2029) - Manama, - JAN 30, 2013
Brown with ruby highlights and a tan head. Aroma is malty, light roasted, chocolate, and fruity. Flavor is sweet malts, chocolate, lightly roasted malts. Not a lot of complexity but seriously easy to drink. Not sure if Iíd pick up a sixer, but a pint at the bar isnít out of the question.

Appearance is thick and murky, full of sediment. Nose is promising, nutty and sweet. However, taste is a let down. Caramel, maple, walnuts, lots of toffee and plum. The taste stays for a second after you swallow and then disappears pretty completely. Mediocre

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2014
A malty aroma brown ale that pours dark and attractive. Toasted aromas do not show any hop traits. Medium sticky body. Raisins and plums with toffee and more toast. Finish lasts.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12 bottle. Brighter ruby color, light retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is earthy English malts and roasted grain. Real earthy with underlying sweetness.

Flavor is again mostly English malts with a touch of molasses and toffee. Pretty simple and straight forward. The texture is semi-dry with a thinner medium side in body. Malt dominates with very little, if any bitterness. Donít know how different the original draft version at "The Shed " really was but this does hide the ABV real nice and drinks rather easy. Donít go out of your way to try it but it is drinkable.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a medium brown slightly hazy with a small cream colored head. Smells of dark malts, honey. Taste is sweet, moderately bitter - hint of chocolate, honey, whole grain bread, mild floral and grassy hops.

Pours dark brown amber with white head. Roasted malt aroma with brown sugar raisins. Dark roasted malt flavor with brown sugar and dark dried fruit notes. A slight hoppy finish. This was a really tasty beer.
