A hazy red beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is nutty, alcohol, and wood. The flavor is vanilla, wood, and sweet malt.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malt and nut. Taste is similar, and a touch bitter late. Not really my style, but not bad.

Found single bottles on sale at ABC. Now I know why, this beer is weird. Itís like an herbal, watery brown ale with a strange caramel funk. I wonít go as far as saying itís a spoiled beer, because itís not bad - just too many flavors that just donít go together so well.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours deep copper with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel, herbs, hints of fruit, and light bitterness. Flavor the same, with a weird blend of it all. Average texture. Not great.

Reddish amber hue, good head formation. Caramel, sugarry aroma, mildly burnt. Smooth palate, mild caramel, mildly toasty. Smooth easy drinker, but a little lifeless.

Thanks to matta for this one. Pours a the color of black cherry Kool-Aid. The head was full of fizz and left as quickly as it came. Big malt aroma that presents cherry, burnt sugar, and woodiness. The flavor is maple, vanilla, toast, tin, and hop bitterness. The palate is very thin and fizzy. I would probably pass on another.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with beige head. The aroma is very caramelly with some odd grassiness and a metallic tinge that I associate with most Shipyard beers. The flavor is caramel, copper, mild grass. Not among my favorites.
