Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pour is copper with a two-finger-wide white head. Aroma is mild with notes of earth, nuts, and spice. Flavor is more pronounced with fruit and toffee shining through. Grain and spice finish, with the alcohol masked very well. A bit strange, but good.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle pour of a copper brown with an off white lacy head. Aroma of earthy grassy hops with a hint of possible mint. Same earthy and slightly sweet malty smoothness with only a very slight bitter at the end. Med body with med light carbonation with a short but firm finish. Over all very enjoyable interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reid (1900) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12 oz bottle from "Lifesource" grocery in Salem OR $2.19 Holy cow 8%!! a steam? Pours a beautiful golden colour with a large ,thick and frothy off white head. Malty aroma..bready,a lot of cereal ( Cream o wheat),herbal and a touch of fruit as expected from style. Taste is like the aroma but sweeter and with a good touch of warming alcohol..but not over the top. Mouthfeel is good and substantial..smooth. nice. Really dont know how to judge this beer ..but i like it but maybe one bottle would be enough.

hfmejias (722) - Dover, Delaware, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden orange in color with a nice white head and lots of lacing; very nice looking beer. Aroma of malts mostly, combined with some fruit and very slightly notes of hops. Taste is fairly sweet and quite malty; some fruit note in there too, not too hoppy. Very drinkable despite the high ABV. Nice beer...

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of nuts, caramel, malt, and earth. Big malt flavor up front with thick bread notes and some sweet caramel flavor. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body, higher carbonation.

Onslow (1166) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Reddish amber brew with white head. Aroma of earth, wood, malt. Faint aroma. Taste is sweet at the start, a little earth and spice, a little bitter at then end. Very well balanced and refined. Not much indication of the high ABV except a little ethanol sweetness at the very end. Quit fine.
