Tap at Blind Tiger: Deep brown/ruby pour with an off white film of head. Resiny sweet earthy hops in the aroma- some toffeeish note as well. Soapy mouthfeel. The flavor has some hempy and oily resins. A bit earthy and vegetal hoppyness. Long hempy bitter finish. A bit soapy and astringent.

Reddish copper brown with a fizzy white head. Skunky marajuna hops aroma. Sweet malty lemon and woody taste. Quite refreshing.

Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma is piny, birchy aroma with a little bit of malt. Flavor is piny birchy syrupy flavor with a little bit of citrusy and earthy hops. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - 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.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 11, 2009
On tap at Crescent Moon. It poured amber with a dirty off white head. Aroma was a sour bread with some resin. Flavor was pretty generic. Kind of earthy with some sweet vanilla. It seems right that this was made with the remains of another. It seems to be lacking a robust flavorful quality I was hoping for.

Yumminess. This sibling us life and lip is delicious. Nicely hopped to give it itís own flavor. Appreciated the smooth palate, grassy nose, dark color with ruby highlights and poofy cream color head

Ratman197 (9952) - 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.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap @ Papago. Really solid, sessionable brown ale. Mahogany pour with a fizzy eggshell head that doesnít leave significant lacing. Aroma is cocoa, brown sugar, and biscuit. Flavor shows honey, chocolate, and a slight coffee finish. Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Good.
