COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at the Graduate in Davis, CA. Pours really dark brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of citrus hop. Barely. Medium/thin body with pretty mild carbonation. Flavor reminds of tea in a way. Itís malty and hoppy. A very tasty beer, but far from a big beer.

Ratman197 (10216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap at Falling Rock poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting beige head and good lacing. Aromas of burnt carmel, toffee, wood, light maple and light spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of toffee, burnt carmel, wood and a hint of spice with a smooth dry malty finish.

JW77 does it again! Brown pour. Small head. Aroma has citrus hops, dough, caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is pretty big for a 5% beer. Lots of caramel and citrus with some light nutiness. Good.

JoeMcPhee (8569) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Deep amber pour with a tight creamy white head. The nose is quite hoppy with a lot of lightly fruity piny hops. A fairly distinct grassiness with a kiss of balsam and juniper. Moderate bitterness but the hops come across a little bit soapy, unfortunately. Itís not overly distracting, but itís there. Moderate bitterness with a tiny bit of grapefruit and caramel as well. It has a kiss of astringency on the back, but I donít really mind that either. Itís fairly unusual and itís pleasant enough, but itís not mind-blowing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Draft: Pours a transparent copper mahogany with a small spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of semi-sweet toasty dark caramel malts with a light grapefruity hoppiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and a semi-sweet earthy chocolate flavor with a hint of nuttiness before a drier, smooth doughy finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Growler at the release of Flaming Fury. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Smells like cigarette butts, smoky and acrid. Flavor is similar, just acrid bitterness. This was gross.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Draft. Rich brown beer with a nice tan head. Chocolate aroma. Cocoa and light grain flavor with light hops and some nuttiness. Medium bodied. Grain and chocolate lingres with nuttiness and light hops.

marcus (6781) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 24, 2010
On tap at the Graduate, Davis. Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head and a light treacle aroma. There is a dry brown ale flavor, slightly carbonated, and more substantial than expected from a secondary brew.
