Nephilium (1405) - Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Caramel/biscuit aroma. Pours a clear reddish amber, with a thin white head. Mild taste, with a touch of sweet malts and a hint of caramel. Full bodied, with a little lingering roasted aroma. Overall a fairly disappointing beer for the price ($10 a 4 pack).

Suttree (5255) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Cloudy Brown, loose bubbly head. Smells like caramel and cola, with some bready, toasty notes. Flavor has some cola-like sweetness, kinda nutty, with a dryish, woody finsh. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

it appears I like this much more than anyone else?? can to glass; can had been in cabinet for a few months; new style for me - what’s not to like here?? Sweet malty aroma with some toffe. orange amber cloudy hazy pour. Taste is well balanced and ends with slight spices and dry. Style says best aged; six pack purchase coming!!

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Poured into a tulip. 3.0 A: Hazed orange plum color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is average, but not lacing is left. 3.5 S: Earthy foremost, grainy, toasted malts, nutty, and perhaps slightly herbal. It smells good, but it’s just too damn faint. 4.0 T: Taste is more aggressive and I’m thrilled about that. Super grainy, toasty, nutty with a light caramel. Fairly dry. Nonspecific earthiness. Tasty and well balanced. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just faintly creamy. Decent here. 3.5 D: This is a very tasty beer, but the taste could you some more power and the nose could use a lot. Still, I enjoyed this much. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 05-30-2012 01:21:09

jhamp9 (1125) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Hazy red/copper pour with no head. Aroma is bread, sweet caramel, and fruit. Taste is the same with bitterness in the finish. Slightly.metallic after taste.

beerbill (3531) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2012
12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a hazy dirty gold with a thin-moderate off-white head that evaporates before the second sip and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of toffee and caramel. The flavor is where this beer falls apart a bit. Toffee and butterscotch along with a bit of overripe fruit. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Not a fan.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Hazy orange/amber pour, not much of a head. Aroma is full on caramel malt, honey and some overripe fruit notes. Flavor has honeycomb, orange, caramel. Not so great.

rougeau13 (2024) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
Slightly hazy reddish amber with a medium, milky, off white head. Aroma of caramel and bread, pear, and a touch of funky Belgian yeast. Taste is really malty with a little fruit sweetness. The flavor is really lacking in complexity. Medium bodied with flattish carbonation. Had this on tap and from the can, and it’s really not very good either way.

djd07 (3868) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2012
On tap at Richmond Arms. Pours a cloudy coppet with large white head leaving sticky along the glass. The aroma is yeast and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with a raisin malt and metallic finish. Easy to drink a decent biere de garde from Southern Star.
